    Hey,

    I have a 3gs iphone with 4.1 and 5.16... I tried redsow and greenpois0n but I cant get it jailbroken.

    Redsnow wouldnt recognized the firmware
    greenpois0n wouldnt give me a loader app at the end of the run

    Please if you know a tutorial that worked for you in the past, share it with me...

    Thank you all

    When you load the firmware into redsn0w you need iPhone2,1_4.1 (3GS).

    www.iclarified.com has great tutorials on jailbreaking.

    What version of redsn0w are you using? Are you sure the iPhone isn't a 3G?

    It is a 3gs 16 GB. I checked the camera and the compass apps are listed on the iphone.

    I am using redsn0w win 0.95b5-5

    You load the 4.1 firmware file into Redsn0w, choose what options you want, DFU mode, jailbreak.
