    I have an iPhone 3gs and I'm tying to jailbreak using redsn0w .8. I have haven't used the 3.1 beta. I am however using a mac. Once I open redsn0w I get all the way to the part where you start the iPhone up in recovery mode. I turn it off and hold the home button and plug it into my computer, but redsn0w doesn't recognize it. Any help would be great.

    iTunes 8.2? Restarted computer? Tried different USB port? Does the recovery mode work; do you see the recovery logo? Does iTunes recognize the recovery mode?

    You put it into DFU mode, not recovery Mode. Here's what I did

    1. Put it in DFU Mode (black screen)
    2. Then ran redsn0w

    Worked perfectly. Try that.

    DFU mode guide is in my sig.

    Thanks, I'll be sure to try DFU when I get home. I'll post back then
