    I decided to take the plunge and jailbreak my iphone 3gs with redsnow. I made sure to select all the right options (i have the newer 3gs model). When I saw the little pineapple on my iphone screen, I got this message :

    redsnow.exe has stopped working
    a problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
    windows will close the programe and notify you if a solution is
    available :eek::eek:

    Now my phone is just stuck on the pineapple. What should I do???

    put it in DFU mode and try again if your using windows 7 you might want to change the compatibility to windows 98.

    Thanks for the fast response. I tried it again it worked but now when I selected Install Cydia it worked until it said uploading ram disk or something like that and then I got that " redsnow has stopped working and windows needs to close it" mesage again. Now my phone is stuck on a screen that says Downloading jailbreak data. I repeated the process again and its the same thing. My computer wont let me finish the jailbreak smh.
