    I have tried both blackra1in and the new redsn0w. Problem with Blackra1in is it gets stuck on running... and my iphone stays in recovery mode. Problem with redsn0w is it asks me to hold the power and home buttom together and thats pretty much it, nothing happens. So I tried to put it into recovery mode by holding the home button while plugging in, redsn0w detects it and does its thing but all I get on my iphone 3gs is a black screen, nothing more. Any idea guys? btw my serial number on my iphone has 28 as the week number so it should be an untethered one. Also I tried DFU mode with redsn0w aswell and that didn't work either.

    Edit: BTW I am on windows 7 64-bit if that is of any relevance.

    Blackra1n will work - you got iTunes open.

    Redsn0w won't work it's for 2.X

    Close iTunes. It's the logical thing to do.

    Redsn0w works.

    Anyways I got to to work, turns out there was something buggy with my USB port. Switched to another one and it worked fine.

    Take it back, yeah 3GS is real picky with USB. If I use anything but the cable that came with my phone it doesn't work :\

    Apple have done some weird sh*t to that phone lmao
