    And your on 3.1.2?
    I can only think your ispw file may be corrupt.
    But tbh I don't know enough to advise, sit tight or try a pm to a mod. They should know what to do.

    Try downloading your 3.1.2 fw from a different source. Shift restore your phone and navigate to that fw. Then retry redsn0w.

    Oh and make sure yo change the file extension to .ispw

    0.9.4, you should really check these things before starting to jailbreak

    Did you change the file extension to .ispw? I had to try the firmware from multiple sources before it would work. I'll try and post a link up

    What did you do different?
    I'm unsure on unlocking, I use an official carrier. Google "unlock redsn0w 0.9.4" I'm sure a guide will come up somewhere.

    Pretty sure 0.9 is for firmware 3.1.2 - Otherwise, use redsn0w 0.9.2

    0.9.4 is specifically made for the ipt2g old bootrom.
