    Im assuming you're new to all this, and honestly, your best option might be to search youtube, they'll give you a video and supply download links to this site.
    It's only impossible if you quit.

    Welcome to MMi,
    Use redsn0w 8 to jailbreak and ultrasn0w to unlock if needed.
    XP or Vista. you need to open "My Computer"
    XP - go to the top menu and select options > Folder Options
    Vista - Top left button that says Organize > Folder and Search Options
    In that window you need to click the " VIEW " tab on top.
    NEED TO SELECT “SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS "
    Then unclick the option to " hide protected operating system files "
    Once that's done click "apply" then ok and exit out of the window.
    Upgrade = click upgrade in iTunes
    Clean restore = Click restore in iTunes and not restore from backup
    Upgrading a major version needs a clean restore. Upgrading a minor version should be OK with an upgrade.
    Same goes for backups - do not restore from a backup made in a FW with a major change but minor changes are fine.
    A number change is major and a decimal change (e.g. 3.0 -> 3.1) is minor.

    What OS, 3.0 or 3.0.1?
    you should have downloaded a 3.0 restore file, did you? If not it will be in the same link I gave you. Make sure it has a .ipsw extension
