    All Contacts, calendar entries and AppStore apps remains too without the need of restore backup.
    Now i have to install the Cydia Apps only

    My friend i have the iphone 2g with 2.1.1 that means that i can update to 3 without loosing data? only cydia apps ( shift and update not restore? )

    thanx

    If you do a restore with apple's 3.0 you will lose your data. Backup your stuff.

    Just some info for some. I downloaded everything as the guide said to, didn't restore or anything, just went straight to upgrade inside iTunes, then followed the redsnow guide. All of my contacts and notes were kept, including my photos, music, and all of my apple apps that I had on the phone. The only thing that was deleted was my cydia apps.

    I DID NOT check the unlock box since i had previously unlocked the phone before with 2.2.1

    I am a T-Mobile customer and my "data plan" info was erased because I got the retarded "not subscribed" message, but I just typed it back it in and it worked fine.

    iPod function works fine, along with shake to shuffle.

    Only problem I have is Cydia errors which I am looking through this thread for a fix.

    Just putting in my two cents Thanx for the excellent walk through;(!!!!

    EDIT; Oh and I used the latest version of iTunes, IE8, and running XP

    DFU mode will get you passed that screen and then restore. Has to be set up as a NEW phone. So everything is clean. Then run the jailbreak.
    Install Cydia only, there is a conflict with installing them both.
    Follow timing and instructions the the letter and it will work.
    In case you need help with DFU mode.
    DFU mode
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connects and disconnects.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

When i download the 3.0 firmware file for 2g phone, there is a bunch of files to be extracted but the ipsw file, my phone is inoperable because i already updated in itunes like you said, but there is no ipsw file for me to use with redsnow to unlock and jailbreak.

    Did you go into DFU mode and hit shift + restore and select the 3.0 firmware upgrade? Once you do that extract the redsn0w folder and run the exe. from there do what it says.

    Your e key seems to be stuck.
    What file are you missing - they are all linked too in the first post in this thread. What's the problem?
