    Hello all.
    I legally purchased 3.0, but am unable to update to it. Everytime I try to, iTunes gives me an error. Its either 1601601, 1602, 1603, 1604 or 1608. After that, it either freezes or becomes non responsive. I'm able to restore it by making another windows account and not signining into itunes then installing 2.2.1, but I'd like to be able to update to what I paid for(I'd also like to be able to run redsn0w and jailbreak the thing). Has anyone here had this issue, or know a way to do remedy it?
    Thanks in advance

    I am sure I am doing something wrong somewhere but I am having the same issue. I can't even get it to restore. It will do nothing. And now I can't find the update but I know I paid for it.

    I tried DFU, but even that didn't work.

    FluffyBunny, try making a new windows account then running itunes under it to get 2.2.1. DON'T SIGN IN under the new account or it will try 3.0 again.
