    hi there

    i am somewhat new and confused.

    i have some reading on jailbreaking, but have not been able to determine the difference between Redsnow and Blackrain

    here is the situation

    i got me a 16gb iTouch 2G with firmware 2.1.1 (5F138)

    I have downloaded "iPod3,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw"

    I have also downloaded blackra1n.exe

    now, i want to jailbreak my iTouch, but i would like to upgrade to the 3.1.2 firmware first

    am i suppose to use blackrain? redsnow? and should i upgrade or not?

    if you point me a link with some directions that will be lovely,

    Thank you kindly

    Just upgrade then run blackra1n. Make sure itunes is closed when you run blackra1n.

    Use the upgrade button in iTunes and buy the firmware.

    This.
    And after that, just run Blackra1n.
    Easy.
