    Is it that your not getting it in DFU mode or the jailbreak is not recognizing it in DFU. What are you using to jailbreak, redsn0w? If so it explains the process in each page. More info please.

    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.

    Have you searched on youtube how to get into dfu mode? its really easy when somebody else is doing it literally in front of you, with the same phone.

    But your saying your on 3.0.1 right now, and you would like to jailbreak it?

    I don't remember redsnow asking to look on google or youtube to get into dfu mode, i think it walks you through it. But i could be wrong.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!
