    Okay, guys (Windows users only)

    Requirements:

    -A PC
    -Common sense
    -Latest Redsn0w patch
    -3.0 restore firmware (.ipsw)

    Execution:

    Download the latest Redsn0w patch and unzip it.
    Into that folder, copy your 3.0 restore ipsw.
    Drag and drop the 3.0 restore ipsw onto the redsn0w exe.

    And VoĆ­la, follow the instructions and you'll be good to go.
    I allready had 3.0 installed, and my files DID NOT get whiped.

    Any further questions, post it in this thread.
    I'm here to help, so fire away your questions!
    I can also help with possible Cydia problems, anything related to this jailbreak.

    FAQ:

    Cydia's crashing again and again! What to do?!

    Just be patient, patience is the key to success

    Cydia's servers have been overloaded by the big amounts of iPods connection to them. Think of 50,000 iPods/iPhones in the first two days of the Redsn0w patch updating over and over, that's nonsense.
    When the servers are stable again, you will have almost none to zero crashes

    You can update to 3.0 jailbreak if you have 2.2.1 installed on your iPod, but you DO need the 3.0 restore.ipsw file!

    i did this but now my ipod is stuck at "Downloading Jailbreak Data..." with a picture of a harddrive and a spinning circle
    about 10 minutes now
    redsn0w software has long since said "Done"
    did something go wrong? or should i just wait?

    You can jailbreak from 2.2.1 to RS 3.0, but you'll need the Restore 3.0 ipsw file!

    Try re-jailbreaking it, it SHOULD work. If the problem persists, contact this thread again. (I tried 2 times, and it worked 2 times)
