Why won't the file download as a .ipsw file? It only downloads as a .dmg file. I have emailed support three times and I have not received a response. Can I get some help please!!!

I have a 3G running on the 05.13.04 baseband and is unlocked on version 3.0 using Blackra1n. Does anyone know if I can jailbreak it using RedSn0w and then unlock it using UltraSn0w? Are there any problems I need to be aware of? I wasn't sure if I could jailbreak it using RedSn0w since I didn't use that previously on version 3.0?

Hello, anyone interested in giving a little advice on what to do with an itunes error 6 encountered while "verifying restore software", and I tried changing ports and cables. I've got an apple original cable and nothing works. I know this isnt the first time this happened and someone has got to have a solution for this.

No unlock yet for iOS 4.1 bb 5.14. let us wait for the release of 4.2 cause they will be releasing unlock for both 4.1 and 4.2

needs xp sp2 program doesnt work on sp3, vista or windows 7, but you can use compatibility mode on Vista and windows 7 to get it working
Aj - October 11, 2010 at 7:22am
I have phone 3gs 32gb with 4.1 version updated by itunes. When i run redsnow and browse to the ispw file it successfully validates it and then all process after that go normal till it comes to the booting up iphone bit. The screen just stays there forever. I have tried rebooting my machine and tried the same on Windows XP and XP professional. Done the Jail breaking at least 5 times with no success. Folks help me. - You have never let me down before. Thanks Aj
