How to Jailbreak Using a Custom Restore IPSW and RedSn0w (Windows)
These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone using a custom restore ipsw and RedSn0w for Windows.
**At this time you cannot generate a custom restore ipsw using Windows. You will have to download one or get it from a Mac friend. You may find it easier to use one of the simple jailbreak options like Limera1n or Greenpois0n.
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage
Download RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the latest 4.1 firmware for your device from here.
Extract the redsn0w zip that you just downloaded into the same folder.
Launch the redsn0w application from the redsn0w folder we extracted earlier.
Once RedSn0w opens click the Browse button
Select the 4.1 firmware ipsw we placed in the Pwnage folder on our desktop then click Open.
Once the firmware has been verified click the Next button to continue.
RedSn0w will now prepare the jailbreak data
From this window you can select the jailbreak options you would like. Choose to put your iPhone in DFU mode.

RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. You can find more help with DFU mode here
Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds.
Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.
RedSn0w will now exploit your device with limera1n.
Your device will now be in pwned DFU mode.
Launch iTunes and select your device from the list on the left. To make iTunes restore to a custom ipsw, hold down Shift and click the Restore button. This will bring up window letting you select the custom ipsw for restore.
