Me too - and I still haven't gone through that process of running normal and DFU mode restores to grab those two files etc. - guess I better get my arse in gear on that.
I grabbed the files yesterday. I"m using Windows, and I used iBEC and IBSS Grabber to do it.

Say what? Is that an app that makes the process less of a pain? That requires less than running the two full restores? If so, I will be giving that a go in a Windows 7 VM faster than very, very fast things move :)

Thanks Napoleon. So, am I understanding correctly - that this lets you run just one restore (the DFU mode one shown) to grab both required files, rather than having to run two restores (one in 'normal' restore mode) in order to get them?

Do you really think that this patch could stop that?

I don't get about the update to 3.0.1 via iTunes and then use redsn0w with the 3.0 ipsw file

Won't this remove the SMS fix? lol
