I've never done it but I don't see logically why it would cause any problems. You're not doing anything through iTunes. You just need the redsn0w software and the 3.0 restore ipsw.

on occasion i will have an issue where a restore is needed - but for the most part just a straight jailbreak will go off without a hitch. I j/b about 4-5 five friends phones when they want it done. only had it happen a few times they had to restore after hooking to iTunes, so they brought it right back to be done again.


i used red snow - for the 3.0 software.

the software you use (totally upto you whatever you use- pwnage/redsn0w), they create custom FW and you restore your phone to it. It's that simple.

PWNage Tool will make a custom ipsw file. To answer your original question, yes it's just fine to JB on another computer. Once it's jailbroken, just sycn it with the computer you normally use.
