Thread: Trying to open redsnow and it opens itunes instead

    Default Trying to open redsnow and it opens itunes instead
    I have a 2g that was previously jailbroken and today I went to upgrade it to 3.1.3 and jailbreak and unlock it.
    I downloaded redsnow-win_0.9.4.zip changed zip to ipsw did the same with the 3.1.2 download. Went to itunes and updated to 3.1.3 as directions. closed itunes and tried to open redsnow and instead it opened itunes back up. What am I doing wrong?
    I have a 3gs that I am using now so the sim card is not activated in the 2g phone. Do I have to have an activated card installed to do this?

    While in itunes, turn off automatically open when connected, or just close it, then run redsnow

    Did you change the Redsn0w.zip to .ipsw? Youre not supposed to. Youre supposed to unzip the Redsn0w.zip and when thats done, youll have access to Redsn0w.exe which is the executable file you want.
