    I'm trying to jailbreak my iPhone but redsnow will not recognize the firmware I've downloaded and I've downloaded it from several different sites? Any suggestions.

    Using the IPSW downloaded from iTunes should work.

    Google is your friend. Use finder. I have navigated to that folder many times, I promise it is there. *crosses heart* :p

    Seriously? Did you even try looking up the IPSW location on google? I guess I will just spoon-feed you the answer. Here.

    If you updated to 3.0 on the computer you are trying to JB on, the IPSW is already saved on the computer.

    Do a search for it -------> iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw

    Point Redsn0w to the Restore IPSW not any Custom Restore IPSW you may have downloaded.
