Ladies + Gents,

View my pic and tell me what the hell is going on.

I've been sat at this screen for 40mins. I've re put my phone in DFU mode about 6 times.


Waiting for reboot.....

same thing happened to mine.. i just unplugged the phone and went through the redsnow process again... and did the part where you hold down power and home more accurate ... i guess i rushed it the first time and had me on that screen forever. now it works fine.

Tried all those things. I'm truly stumped.

I am choosing the correct .ipsw file as well, 3.0 not 3.0.1

I'll continue trying and i'll check back here if anyone else has any ideas.

The next step would be to try using a different computer.

Which version of redsn0w are you using?
I'm using the latest- redsn0w 0.8

I've tried a variety of different USB leads. I haven't tried a different computer- I don't see why my computer would be the problem, I've jailbroken many phones on my mac before with zero problems.

I'm going to have to explore different types of jailbreak.

What does it display on your phone when you are on this screen?
I'm assuming you mean when redsn0w is 'waiting for reboot'.....


Well it's black (as in the screen)- As it's in DFU mode.

It's still the same. I'm really confused with this one.

How to you put it in recovery mode? Did you just hold the home button with the usb cable unplugged and then kept hold of the home button while plugging it into the computer till the iTunes logo appeared?

Or did you do it by holding the power button and home button then releasing the power button and keeping hold of the home button.

Don't know if this would make a difference or not

I have it plugged in by USB to my mac.

I then hold power and home button for 10 seconds.
Release the power button and continue holding the home button.

You will then get a prompt from iTunes stating your phone needs to be restored etc.

I am most certainly putting my phone in DFU mode correctly.

I might be on to something. I'll post shortly.

It tells you in redsn0w to unplug it from the computer hold the home button down while plugging it into the computer till the iTunes logo apears then release the home button

Try it that way because recovery mode is diffrent to DFU mode.

Have you tried unplugging and plugging back in your USB cable real quick?
Kevin, you are right again. Wisdom at it's best.

I thought I'll see if I can unplug and plug back in really quick.

My screen went white when I unplugged and then when I plugged back in.... well all i can say is service resumed :sneaky:

Thanks again.
