    So I'm working my way throught this jail break using redsn0w and i downloaded the FW file but when browsing it doesn't shoe that IPSW file. Did I download it wrong? It was initially in zip format. Using windows 7. Thxs!!

    Awesome. I figured that but thought I was doing something wrong. So to make sure. Don't unzip then rename. Do rename only.

    that is correct...do not unzip just rename it...in the future you can use firefox or chrome to download them and not run into this problem

    Cool. I'm gonna get on it when I get home this evening and see how it works. Thxs again!

    OK, not cool. So I did the steps with redsn0w and now after rebooting and seeing this walking pineapple it's staying on a screen that has a usb cable pointing to itunes. What's up with that. I tried searching the forum and have not seen anything but one saying let it sit for 15 mins and then restart. But I think they used a different JB'ing tool. Pls advice.

    if u have a 3gs then you have a tethered jailbreak...run redsn0w again and select the "just boot tethered" option

    just make sure that when u are installing apps you are careful what u install becuase if it requires a reboot you will need to be by your computer..also watch your battery...keep a car charger or extra wall charger with you...I have a tethered jailbreak myself and it's really not as bad as it sounds to alot of people

    Right, it doesn't sound that bad. My phone usually always stays on. But definetly need to keep in mind that part with apps needing restart. Might have to keep computer in car for a bit just in case. Last question then I won't bother ya any more. I can sync this with itunes still to get music or are there some restrictions? I know that I need to keep in mind not to accidently upgrade to 3.1.3.
