Thread: 3gs iphone jailbreak issue using 0.8 redsnow and 3.0.1 firmware

    Default 3gs iphone jailbreak issue using 0.8 redsnow and 3.0.1 firmware
    i have the following:
    windows vista
    iphone 16gb 3gs w/ the latest 3.0.1 7A400 firmware installed
    redsnow version .8

    when i launch redsnow and specify the ipsw for my current firmware, i get the message "unable to recognize specified ipsw".
    the ipsw file im using is iPhone2,1_3.0.1_7A400_Restore.ipsw

    can you guys tell me what im doing wrong?

    i was reading some of the other threads and some mention that you use the 3.0 7a341 ipsw file even if your 3gs has 3.0.1 7a340 firmware. is this right? redsnow doesnt seem to recognize the 3.0.1 ipsw firmware.

    Use 3.0 and follow the step on redsn0w and let it do its job.

    Slightly off topic but not really because I'd also like to jailbreak my iphone 3gs 3.0.1

    I have 3.0 7a341 firmware which I used for my iPod Touch 2G.
    Is it the same as the iPhone 3.0 7a341 firmware, or do I need to download again for the iPhone?

    i selected the ipsw associated with the 3.0 os. worked perfectly and no issues. this thing is really addicting and now im trying to convince others to switch cuz theyre really missing a totally different world. wow.

    i have a 32gb iphone, but redsnow will not work for me. I chose the 3.0 firmware and get cpu gets stuck at second step "waiting for reboot"...i then manually rebooted the phone, but once it says done, there's no cydia...can 32gig's be jailbroken...if not, im goin back to my 16 gig...
