    Default Really dumb ? re teathered

    A friend has had her late model 3GS jailbroken (redsnOw) but now we are unsure how to do the teathered jailbreak? Jailbreak was successful, but trying to restart the phone now. Tried to install SB settings and it required a restart. The guy who jailbroke it is not available.....

    I have tried to run redsnOw again, but it says "Unable to recognize specified IPSW" Therefore redsnOw is unable to run.
    she is on 3.12 and I downloaded the ispw from the iClarified tutorial for Windows. Her phone is stuck in recovery mode for now (but I think this is normal for the teathered jailbreak?).
    Do I need to connect the phone to iTunes to get the phone out of recovery (using the custom ispw) before running redsnow again? Couldn't try this yet as she also needed to update iTunes...
    Sorry for the very basic questions, but I am unfamiliar with the teathered jailbreak and would like to be able to help her maintain the jailbreak if she can.
    Cheers

    Also, as apple stopped signing 3.12 I am assuming that connecting to iTunes and attempting the custom ispw won't work. She didn't use the Make my Life Easier option in Cydia I am sure.
    So I suppose my question really is, how do I get redsnOw to run again?

    You need to connect the iPhone to the computer, then run redsn0w, it will detect the iPhone in tethered boot mode and will offer only one option "Just boot tethered right now"

    You should not need to supply a IPSW this time around.

    The version of iTunes should not matter much as I believe that redsn0w works independently of iTunes. Any version of iTunes from 8.2 to 9.0.3 will work with OS 3.x iPhones.

    I can't give you more info because I don't have a new bootrom 3GS
