Unable to Jailbreak/enter DFU mode
So my fiancee decided she wants her iPhone jailbroken. I've jailbroken mine several times now, and I feel that I know what I'm doing..
However, with her phone, when I open up redsn0w and load up the IPSW, it goes through the steps like "Hold the power button for 5 seconds".."Hold the power AND home button for 10 seconds".."Release the power button, but keep holding the home button for 30 seconds"
With my fiancee's phone, it doesn't reboot after I release the power button while still holding the home button.. And redsn0w just stalls at "Waiting for reboot"

Are they the same model of iPhones? I tried to jailbreak my sons 3G with redsn0w .8 and it did the same thing. I downloaded 7.2. and it worked for his phone. Restore the phone in iTunes.... and make sure you have the correct ipsw. My 3GS errored out the same way when I tried to use the 3G ipsw with redsn0w .8.

I had jailbreaken hers back when she was running 2.1, but then she wanted to upgrade to 3.0 and I told her I'd re-jailbreak it afterwards. I'll try it again though, wish me luck!

redsn0w starts the countdown at 30, but stops at 20 and goes to the next step, where it still stalls at "waiting for reboot", and the iPhone is in the off mode.
So after redsn0w stalls at "waiting for reboot", and the iPhone is in the off mode, I just went through the DFU steps again (Power, Power+Home, Home) and now it's working.... straaaange. Well thank you for the help guys! My fiancee won't hate me after all for ruining her jailbreak powers hehehe.
EDIT AGAIN AGAIN
So now her phone is taking an extra long time at the "Jailbreaking your phone" part of redsn0w, the phone's backlit screen is lit, but there is no activity.. I'll give it 20-30 minutes before I come back and update again..

what to do when her iPhone doesn't like you?
:> so many people have problems with redsn0w??!?!? Try using Pwnage - it works on my phone and since your girlfriend's iPhone is now stuck on a half way bridge you might as well. Remember to restore her iPhone back to firmware 3.0 - which you can get from link below. THEN do the jailbreak again >.>
iPhone 3G 3.0 Jailbreak!!
So here's instructions that are relatively idiot proof:
1 ------ So first go to: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/iphone-...wnagetool.html
Download Pwnage + Firmware and follow instructions.
+++ Even if you phone was jailbroken before - it's best to choose "no" when Pwnage asks if it was jb before.
2 ------ THEN - don't sync your applications yet, I had tons of cracked apps and waited but it doesn't sync... since obviously you need another program. So now go into Cydia:
Click on "Manage"
Tap "Add Source"
Back to Cydia
Press on AppSync 3.0
Install at own's risk....
Wait some more.............
Dont worry this actually works well.. I tested it!

Ok, after reading through that link, I noticed a slight difference between the ISPW I was using, and the one that was in the forum.. I was using iPhone1,1_3.0 and in the thread it stated iPhone1,2_3.0
Now it's working, hoorah!
