    Here is where I am at, maybe someone can help:

    Iphone 4 (Verizon) 4.2.8
    Windows based computer

    I have downloaded SnowBreeze. I was able to complete the sync, but I don't have a cydia app.

    From there, I then tried a friends suggestion of Redsn0w and I got the application opened on my windows PC and it prompts me to browse for my IPSW. This is where I get stuck here.

    I will take advice on either, my main objective in jailbreaking is to be able to use my Iphone4 as a wi-fi hotspot.

    I ran into the same issue, just search For the ipsw and download it. When redsn0w ask for it browse to it. After that it is very easy.

    Sorry, did not mean to offend. For whatever reason I just spaced your response.
