    I have tried redsn0w and recboot but nothing doing there!

    You are going to have to restore. But to restore to anything but the latest firmware (4.3.5) you will need SHSH. If you have never saved SHSH before now then the only SHSH you will be able to get are 4.1 and 4.3.5. So those are the only two firmwares you can restore to. If you want to jailbreak then 4.1 is the one you will want to restore to.

    So download the firmware 4.1 then restore? I think I may of tried that and itunes returned, not compatible I think!
    Is there a particular firmware?
    Thanks

    Use firefox and download the 4.1 firmware for 3GS from the downloads section of this site.

    No prob. You will probably get error 1015 near the end of the restore. When you do you can use tiny umbrella to exit recovery.
