    Need a bit more information. Don't understand your last sentence.

    Also - what exactly happens on the phone when you say it never passes the reboot?

    You need iTunes on your computer to jailbreak any device.

    I ran redsnow and went through the entire Process. Once I completed DUF, it said there was nothing detected. I then looked and noticed that Itunes was not installed. I them installed Itunes, reran the program, and now it is doing nothing. When I get to DUF, it passes it without asking me to do it and goes to the install.

    The screen says Please wait while your device is being processed.

    Waiting for reboot.

    Which version of windows are you using? If you're on Vista or W7, make sure you run redsn0w in windows xp compatibility mode

    Run redsn0w again. Make sure you load in the right firmware - iPhone1,2_4.1

    Install Cydia and uncheck every other box. Pay attention to the count down and it should work.

    If not you can also try jailbreaking with LimeRa1n or Greenpois0n

    Not unless you've synced them to iTunes or they are saved on your sim card.

    well, I tried and tried..... no luck. Then I did a system restore. It upgraded to OS4.3.3 and the phone is the 3Gs. So I tried the redsnow again and still no luck. I am not sure what the deal is......
