    Hey guys,

    I have tried to jb my iphone 3g a few times, in the past i have been successful but im having problems on 4.0.

    Redsn0w completes the process and shows the "waiting for reboot" screen, but the phone doesn't reboot.... I have tried unplugging and re-plugging etc.

    Has anyone got any tips?

    Make sure your downloading the right IPSW and the right one for your model of your iPhone. I made this mistake last time.

    I too made this simple mistake and it took me a while to realize it. Very easy to do. Make SURE you're downloading/installing THE version for your device. I will be certain for this iOS4 update! ;)

    i have the iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore on the phone, and am using the iPhone1,2_4.0_8A274b_Restore in redsn0w, its an iphone 3G 16gb.

    those are correct arent they?

    Im currently using itunes to get into dfu mode. i have tried every other way on youtube with no luck.
