    Default 3GS 4.0 "unable to recognize specified ipsw"

    I have a 3GS 4.0.1 (8A306)

    I've been trying to jailbreak with Redsn0w both 0.9.5b5-5 and 0.9.2 by applying the 4.0 firmware (8A293) even though I'm running 4.0.1 (8A306) as their website should be possible.

    The problem I have is that no matter where I download the 4.0 (8A293) ISPW from (I've tried five sources) I get his message after loading it into Redsn0w "unable to recognize specified ipsw". Can anyone help me out with this?

    I found a great piece of information regarding Redsn0w this problem, though it still does not fix it! No matter where I get the IPSW from I still get "unable to recognize specified ipsw".

    HELP please!

    I have the same problem. It seems that the 3G can be jailbroken with this method, but not the 3GS.

    I've got the same problem. Using redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5, it doesn't matter what IPSW I point it at (3G 4.0/3GS 4.0/etc.), it just tells me the .IPSW isn't recognized. Same .IPSW I used when I jailbroke my 3GS initially, so I know the .IPSW hasn't changed. Dunno what the issue is.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.

    Don't think redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 supports the 3GS. Only 3G and iPod touch 2G
