    Or am I thinking too hard?

    I have redsn0w 0.8 on my Laptop, and have my iPhone here

    I run the program, and it asks where my IPSW for my current firmware is.
    Well where is it?

    I'm on Windows XP, if that changes anything?

    Only choose cydia when installing

    Make sure you use the 3.0 IPSW if you're on 3.0.1.

    I'm currently on 3.0

    Do I continue as normal then?

    You need to be able to see hidden files.

    upgrade to 3.0.1 first, then jailbreak using the 3.0 IPSW. it won't overwrite the fix made by 3.0.1 when it flashes the rom.

    edit again, found it, but theres only my iPods 2.2.1 software, no 3.0

    Do I need to download it then?

    *Edit

    I will do as Vesper says, and upgrade to 3.0.1, but I'm still missing 3.0, where can I get a good copy from?

    You might want to remove that link. Downloading the 3.0 FW for iPhones is legal because its free anyway, but that link also has the other iDevices on it which is illegal.

    I forgot to upgrade to 3.0.1, instead I just JB'd the 3.0 firmware.

    Is this a problem?

    I'm fully Jailbroken now
