    Default IPhone 3g 4.0.2 downgrade to 4.0
    I have read several post and thought that I had it figured out. First off I have never jailbroken before so hopefully I'm asking a simple question. A couple of weeks ago I updated my phone to 4.0.2 through itunes. I have Iphone 3g and downloaded redsnw 0.9.5b5-5 and attempted to jailbreak it and when I get to the screen in redsnow that ask to select the corresponding IPSW for my current hardware I click browse and can't find any of the files in the 4.0 download from this site to be in the IPSW format. I am just wondering how to find the IPSW files so redsn0w will recognize them. Thanks in advance for the response

    Internet explorer downloads them as .zip so you can either change the extensions from .zip to .ipsw or redownload using a different browser

    I just got my new iPhone 4 two days ago and I was able to jail break it in less than 6 minutes.

    By the way, I didn't have to pay for the phone. If you want a free iPhone 4, just follow the instructions in the link below:
    Get your officially unlocked iPhone 4, a Macbook Pro, Xbox 360 Elite, iPod or an iPad for Free

    At the beginning, I was skeptical but when I got the phone delivered to my house, I was shocked.

    If you have an iPhone 4 and never saved your SHSH then you are probably out of luck. If you have a 3GS there is a good chance you have SHSH and just dont know it. You can try my guide here to check and downgrade if you do:
