    Default 3G restored w/ iPhone2,1_4.0_restore.ipsw
    I just recieved a 3G and it was restored with iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293_restore.ipsw and it wasn't jailbroken before.

    Im trying to jailbreak but to no success. I tried Redsnow and it doesn't recognize the ipsw. I tried Redsnow on both my HP and Mac but still cant recognize the ipsw. Tried the latest Snowbreeze and Pwnage, it both created successfully custon ipsw but iTunes gives me error codes such as 1600 or 1604. I searched for two days, youtube shows j/b with iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293 ipsw not the restore file of iPhone2,1. Looks like I have to wait for an updated Redsnow,etc. the recognizes this certain ipsw, or am I doing something wrong. I've downloaded the ipsw from multiple sites including iTunes file but to no success. I download also Redsnow from multiple sites, installed, removed, restarted my computer, and yet it doesn't recongize the ipsw. Did the same with iTunes, Snowbreeze, and Pwnage (installed, reboot, removed, installed) and no success.

    Sure would need some suggestion.

    Thanks, but this procedure was my first attempt and to no success. I donwloaded Redsnow from the link and followed the steps but Redsnow doesn't recognize the ipsw. Redsnow on my HP/Mac Pro ends up with the same result of the ipsw not being recognize.

    I've jailbroke another 3G but with the iPhone1,2 restore file. But this current 3G has iPhone2,1 restore file.

    How to Download iPhone and iPod Touch Firmware IPSW with Safari

    Make sure you are selecting the correct firmware when you are telling redsn0w which one to use.

    You shouldn't have any problems
    Have they released the jailbreak in the app store yet?

    I used Firefox to download the firmware. I also double-check what firmware iTunes is restoring the iPhone with and it is iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw. I'm beginning to wonder if this is this is a 3Gs instead of a 3G. I will try to use iDentifier to see what iPhone I have. My friends insists its a 3G but it might be a 3Gs since he bought it used.

    If it is a 3gs when you open the camera app there will be a little slider for video/picture. Also the compass will only be on a 3gs.

    I have a 3g with 4.0.1 an am looking into JBing with redsn0w. After reading some other threads and checking links to download restore software from this write-up it appears you have the software for a 3gs.

    iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw is for the 3gs.
    iPhone1.2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw is for the 3g.

    So either you have a 3gs or somehow the 3gs software got on to a 3g. That would be my guess.
