    When I browse for the ipsw for 3.0 3gs it says it is unable to recognize the specified ipsw? Does anyone know why this is? Im not a noobie with redsn0w, but I cant seem to figure this out. I have tried redownloading the ispw multiple times, still no luck. Does anyone have a NOT apple link to the 3.0 for 3gs? Or anyone know how to fix this?

    Mine was doing the same thing.
    I even pointed it to the IPSW that was saved inside the itunes folder and downloaded directly from Apple and nothing.
    I'd like to know also.

    Maybe you should post that info here.

    Maybe they can figure it out.

    I had the same problem. To get it to recognize, I typed *.* in the filename filed and then chose the appropriate folder/file. The next prompt came up and it went fine from there.

    When I was having issues with redsn0w I poked around online and found out that the IPSW for the 3GS has to start with 2,1 (3G starts with 1,2 and that's the one I had), and once I downloaded the correct one it solved my problem.

    Other than that, I got nothing...:(
