    Well, I bought the upgrade and I am now running 3.0

    I just want to jailbreak my device now.

    I downloaded redsn0w from the dev teams official windows *******, but when I run redsn0w, I get tons of problems from my COMODO anti-virus system.

    Redsn0w tries to access localhost,svchost,lsass, and many, many other important system processes.

    Should I turn off this virus protector and then jailbreak my device?

    I would like to stay safe, any help at al will be appreciated. Thank you.

    If you downloaded redsn0w from the dev team it contains no viruses, believe me. If, however you downloaded it from somewhere else, I'd get rid of it and get it from an official source.

    Not all *******s are illegal, the dev teams work is a great example of this. As long as its by the dev team, you're safe. If you really don't like using *******s, use the links at the left of their blog to download them.

    I downloaded it, It just gives me strange errors when using. Whatever, I got a virus a little bit ago so nothing is too bad if it is deleted lol. I had to re-format a little while ago.

    Thanks for your help.
