    Default 3gs 3.0 major help

    hi im new

    the problem i hav is i hav a iphone 3gs 3.0 i hav tried using redsnow to jailbreak and unlock. but about 3/4 through when its installing bundles it just jumps to activating and stays there for over 10 minutes. then the phone goes in to recovery. then i repeat the process and i end up in the same boat which feels like the titanic at the moment. i tried updating to 3.1.2 but i cant because apple wont let me. just cant see a light at the end of this dark tunnel haha

    if any one could help it would be gratefull thanks

    There are plenty of existing threads explaining the jailbreak process.

    You are incredibly thin on useful details.
    What version of redsn0w are you using?
    Windows or Mac?
    Can you legitimately activate? You say you want to unlock, so I guess maybe not.

    Let me suggest some general troubleshooting tips

    1. Try a different computer, some machines have buggy USB (ports or drivers) that don't work so well with restoring or jailbreak
    2. Are you using an original legit Apple cable. Many of the problems people experience are due to cheap Chinese cables which lack proper shielding. They are good for charging only
    3. Be sure to use the right version of redsn0w - this is either 0.8 or 0.9.2


    Also, you can't restore custom IPSW without having first jailbroken your 3GS.

    Stick with it and don't restore to 3.1.3 - you will lose the ability to unlock (and jailbreak)
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!
