    redsn0w won't recognize the 3.1.3 IPSW.

    The guide title says its for 3.1.3, but the actual text initially says its for 3.1.2 and then gives a link for 3.1.3, hahahaha

    Could it be the same way as with 4.0.2 and 4.0.1, where redsn0w actually needs a 4.0 IPSW to work properly, meaning that I'd need to give it a 3.1.2 IPSW to JB 3.1.3?

    EDIT: That was the problem. It actually needs 3.1.2 IPSW to recognize it.

    To use Redsn0w with 3.1.3, you must point it to 3.1.2.

    Is it reversible? I'm testing it on a 2G I have laying around before I do it on the customer's.

    Is the jailbreak reversible? Yes, just click restore in iTunes and restore it to the default firmware.

    Which redsn0w version is made for the 2G?

    For unlock...
    Do we still need 2 other files...i think it's called bootneuter and something else?

    Yes, the bootloaders. Load them into Cydia and it will unlock. Redsn0w 0.9.3 (or .2)

    Not enough since I also had to UPGRADE it from 2.1.2 before the JB & UL.
