    So when I got to the step where you hit shift and click restore and select the 4.0.2 version to restore I get this error message

    I was following this Jailbreak guide and follow instructions when I got that error.

    This is where I got this error message

    Then I tried to skip past the update with the file selected and went on to try...

    It didn't reboot.

    I tried this once I when into the DFU mode the device would not reboot. It just stayed off. I would have to re-enter the DFU mode.

    I have the most current update from iTunes for the iPhone. I want to jail break it can someone help me with these issues I'm running into.

    i skimmed but this is most likely your problem

    thats a guide to jailbreak a 3G, your topic says you are on a 3GS

    more likely than not when it gave you the firmware to download you downloaded a firmware that was created for a 3G, thus why itunes says the firmware is incompatible

    yes if you have a 3gs then you can't jailbreak 4.0.2 you might be able to downgrade 4.0.1 and then jailbreak, but based on this I will personally let somebody else tell you about it. if they choose I don't want to be blamed if you fail. :p

    Yes, it's very easy. You made this 10 times harder than it was.
