    This tutorial is written for Windows Vista & included the latest bugfix 0.7.2. If you updated with redsn0w 0.7 or 0.7.1 then you do not need to reupdate using 0.7.2.

    Note: You must upgrade to 3.0 prior to running redsn0w

    DO NOT PM ME ASKING FOR HELP AS I WILL NOT GIVE IT, MOST OF THE QUESTIONS I HAVE BEEN ASKED HAVE BEEN ANSWERED IN THIS THREAD

    ALSO, DO NOT ASK ME FOR A DOWNLOAD OF FIRMWARE 3.0. THIS IS ILLEGAL! BUY IT FROM ITUNES


    Step 1: Download redsn0w from http://[PIRACY.rs].com/files/247343888/redsn0w-win_0.7.2.zip

    Past Versions

    0.7 - http://[PIRACY.rs].com/files/246578860/redsn0w-win_0.7.zip
    0.7.1 - http://[PIRACY.rs].com/files/246588466/redsn0w-win_0.7.1.zip


    Step 2: Extract the files and put them into a folder on your desktop called redsnow

    Step 3: Locate your IPSW file for 3.0. It should be located at
    C:\Users\*USERNAME8\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    Step 4: Copy this file into the redsnow folder on your desktop

    Step 5: Put your iPod into DFU mode and connect it to iTunes. To enter DFU mode, turn your ipod off and then hold the lock and home button for 10 seconds, then let go of the lock button while holding the home button. iTunes should say your ipod is in DFU mode an needs to restore, just ignore it and move on to step 6

    Step 6: Drag the IPSW onto redsn0w.exe

    Step 7: Let it do its thing

    Step 8: Enjoy

    And if it ever freezes or shuts down. Just unplug, reset (hold both buttons), and try again.

    they're current re-releasing redsn0w for windows due to bugfix (according to dev team twitter). Don't know if this will change anything...

    You will need to have the 3.0 firmware. Buy it from iTunes to get this
