    What are you trying to do, ireb is a tool for you to kick out of recovery loop. You can also use tiny umbrella to do the job.

    To use Snowbreeze, if it is a 3g, you must be already jailbroken by Redsn0w or Blackra1n. If it is a 3gs, then you must have the old bootrom and also jailbroken first by Redsn0w or Blackra1n, not by Jailbreakme.com

    So you are already at stock 4.1, you can only jailbreak but cannot unlock.
    You have to downgrade to 3.1.2 by doing the shift + Restore to 3.1.2.
    You will encounter error 1015, use Tiny Umbrella to kick it out.
    From Emergency Screen , you can jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.2 and once jailbroken, update your Cydia first. Once all of these are done.
    Create a custom Firmware from Snowbreeze 4.1 which will be placed on your desktop and will be named as Snowbreeze_4.1_ipsw
    Now put your iphone into recovery mode
    Do the Shift + Restore to Snowbreeze_4.1_ipsw.

    Downgrade to 3.1.2, jailbreak with Redsn0w, update Cydia first > then put iphone into recovery and Restore with Snowbreeze_4.1_ipsw which you created from Snowbreeze 2.0.2.

    Yes, it does, for 3gs, all restore to firmware that Apple no longer signs, you will need the shsh blogs.
    It means if you want to downgrade to 3.1.2 , you will either have to point your hosts towards Cydia or Start Tss Server ( Only if Cydia has your 3.1.2 shsh file )

    Not that it matters since OP has a 3GS, but ireb is exactly what he said it is for. It allows the install of a custom firmware on a iPhone 2g/3g without needing to be jailbroken first. It is not a tool to kick out of recovery (although it does have that feature too).

    I just realized there is the new version of iReb 4.1, it says 3G and 2G, does it really install a custom firmware of 4.1 without having to go thru all the downgrading first.

    It doesn't actually jailbreak. It just allows a stock iPhone 2g/3g to load a custom firmware. Not 100% on what it does but it looks like it bypasses the check that iTunes makes to determine I you are using a legit iPhone firmware when restoring. I have used it before it does the job.

    Isn't a custom firmware when restored , you are already jailbroken, you say it doesn't really jailbreak.

    I meant ireb doesn't jailbreak. Of course a custom firmware jailbreaks.

    Very handy little tool. Too bad it doesn't work on the newer devices.
