    Only thing is, at the point where you shut of the phone & then have to hold down power button & home button, the white screen doesnt come up on my iphone & no wee pineapple cartoon appears either!

    Have tried it a few times & all that happens at this point is
    on my imac, it says rebooting & blank on phone.

    What am i doing wrong?
    Im choosing the 3.0 firmware with the exact same code as his 7A341

    Just jailbroke mine and my wife's 3GS for the first time and it's tons of fun if you don't go overboard with too much. I like adblock, winterboard mac osx theme (1 at a time), carrier logo change, backgrounder and mac styled ssb. I really feel like my phone is what it should have been all along and am very happy with the jb. :apple::apple::apple::apple:

    I have tried it with your instructions several times now & it always fails at the rebooting stage after i have held down the keys etc & it goes to next page, it will load a couple of blue lines very fast then nothing, nothing at all shows on the iphone, its just blank & no matter how long i have left it, last time was nearly an hour, it still didnt come up & then i have to go back & restore it all again!

    The same thing was happening with the instructions from that youtube link!!

    There are a few main things to try if you hang up in RedSn0w at the "waiting for reboot" stage:

    1. When it hangs, unplug then replug your USB cable. This often kicks it into life

    2. Be absolutely sure you have the right firmware, ie the 3GS version "iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw" (note it's 2,1). You can get it here: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750

    3. Reboot your computer and run the process before you start doing anything else on it - plus try 1 above again if it still hangs

    4. Make sure it's RedSn0w 0.8

    5. If you're on OSX 10.5.6 you'll need to upgrade it to a later version

    Each of these has worked for some people on this forum.
