    Hey guys, if you are having similiar problems like Cydia is giving internal eror message, when jailbreaking, DO NOT install Icy. Please have a look at Joe Tech How To Fix Cydia’s Internal Error During An iPhone 3.0 Redsn0w Jailbreak

    It solved my problem. Cydia works fine, upgrades all the packages as normal.

    you need to install ultrasn0w to use tmobile. just restart after installing that and you should be fine.

    ok, so now can i download the final cut of itunes? now that redsnow is out? im already jailbroken and am still running itunes 8.2 beta, just wondering if it was safe now to download the real deal? or is the beta version a better one to hold on to?

    All new tools work with final versions - time to update!

    That's crap. I'm not new to jailbreaking by any means. I've been doing this since 1.0.2 and have jailbroken by numerous means, rarely with problems like this. I can assure you 100% that I am using the same and correct ipsw, but still hang on waiting for reboot. I've never been unable to jailbreak before and now I've been trying for days. One other thing before you even ask, yes I have compatibility mode on, ran as administrator, and have even tried on my wife's laptop, running xp.

    Also, what's your source on saying avoid vista? What does vista do that the other os' don't?

    A lot of people have had problems just upgrading to 3.0 on Vista (I did with my daughter's iPod Touch) which I believe are due to USB driver problems (same happens with WM devices)
    OSX 10.5.6 has problems with Waiting for reboot as well but can be worked round.
    Most people having this problem find it is cured by selecting the correct ipsw, if not then a different machine usually helps.
    You are using iTunes 8.2, RedSn0w 0.72 and the standard (not custom) ipsw?

  10. #310
    every time i try to restore to the 3.0 firmware i get a corrupt file error. it says " could not be restored because the firmware file was corrupt." i have downloaded the restore from 3 different sites and i still get the same error. what am i doing wrong?

    2) I did say restore not upgrade - upgrading causes problems.
    3) Most cydia problems are caused by installing Icy - my advice? Avoid.
    4) On an official carrier activate in iTunes before Jailbreaking otherwise leave SIM in for RedSn0w
    5) Cydia will be on page 2 after RedSn0w
    6) On T-Mob USA turn 3G off before installing UltraSn0w and on any carrier, once it's installed reboot.
    7) Avoid using Vista to upgrade to FW3.0 - it causes problems not found on OSX, XP or Windows 7

    thanks for the confidence. installed like you suggested and works perfectly

    I have just download the IPSW file. BUT I cant seem to get into IPSW format for Redsn0w to recognise it as a firmware. Do I need to rename file or something? Please help...

  14. #313
    How are you downloading it? If you are using Safari see here.

    ebie-
    You need to make sure that you remove the .zip extension on your ipsw download. Change it to dot ipsw and you should be good to go. Hope that helps!

    You need to restore as a new phone. If you stop shouting and typing?s and actually tell us what the problem is someone will probably be able to help. As it is I have no idea what you are asking.
