I have a little bit problem width the os4 jailbreak.
I have iPhone 3G and jailbrokened 3.01 FW, and win xp op system, itunes 9.2.
Now, i have upgrade to os4 with itunes, shift+restore: iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw.
So, to step 6 is all ok. Then i use the redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5. to step 13 is all ok, but....
the phone go no in dfu mode(its my mind), and should no reboot. The scree still off, and redsn0w wait to the iphone rebooting, and nothing happen.
in itunes, the recowery mode is ok, and I can restore the fw.
The phone come back after a manual reset, and the os4 work fine.
I have use other test:the pone send in dfu mode-> itunes come up-> recovery mode
->restore iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw and then the redsnow, but the step 14 not doing, no rebooting.
I have use other usb port, other pc, and redsn0w 0.9.5b5-3 but the problem is same.
What is the problem or the solution?
once the iphone has had an official update to os4 download the 4.0 ipsw and then run the redsn0w
