    Just download an update to 3.0.1 in iTunes, and just download/run redsnow 0.8 and just point it to the 3.0 IPSW and let it run, it will easily jailbreak your 3.0.1 device. :)

    I have the same request

    Getting the 3.0 firmware is the hard part ... I'm on Vista and when I dl the file for the 3gs, I get a zip file ... not an ipsw file ... I'd love to have someone point me at the ipsw file ... or send it to me via email (fuzzywuzhe at aol.com)

    Why don't you just use the one that iTunes gave you? You should be able to find a good copy via torrent. The file is completely legal to download because it is free anyway.

    Torrent is a way to download something in bits and pieces from a bunch of different people at the same time. If you can find a .torrent file that is the 3.0 IPSW you can use programs like Transmission or uTorrent to download the actual file. It is really simple.

    I would think it would be easier to just send the file via a zip folder ... then I could unzip and have the correct 3gs file ... but I'll try to figure out torrent ... I'm assuming this is a pc program .. I really don't want to buy a mac to jb my 3gs, just because I was whipped and accidently "upgraded" my jb'd phone

    my problem is when you dl the 3gs 3.0 file, it's not an ipsw file in the zip folder ... when I extract the files red snow won't point at either the zip file or any of the extracted files ... I've been told to change the extension to .ipsw but I can't figure out how to do that

    Just click on it to highlight it, and then click on it again, and you should be able to change the name. Or just click on it and then press Command + i and edit the name and press enter. :)

    I can change the name to .ipsw, but it's still a zip file ... ie .... iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw.zip

    All you have to do is delete the ".zip" part, and it should prompt you about chaning it. That doesn't happen?

    the .zip part isn't part pf the name I can change ... hence my problem ... I'm guessing this is easier on an apple

    Oh, I thought you were on a Mac, not a PC, have you tried downloading the file with both IE and FF?

    I love how we are taking over this thread, but anyway,

    Once you extract the files they should no longer be associated with .zip . Extract the files to your desktop and delete the .zip file as to cut any ties with it. Then direct the program to the files on your desktop.
    Did this work?

    why can't you just delete the ".zip" part?

    when I try to change the file name the .zip isn't part of the name ... if I go to properties ... it still shows it as a zip file ... adding .ipsw to the file name doesn't change the file type

    He doesn't have the setting in Windoze turned on to show file extensions.

    I responded to the thread he started on this.
