    YES!! I have the exact same problem. "redsn0w.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." My ipod is stuck on "Downloading Jailbreak Data..."

    What do I do? Can anyone help us? I'm on windows XP.

    I tried again and it seems to have worked. I closed all other programs and used the actual 3.0fw in the apple folder instead of a copy I made on the desktop for my first attempt.

    You right click it, than click run as admin, a little box will pop up, you need to click ok.

    I'm on a Mac, and I've run redsn0w 3 times now, the first time it worked until I tried to download SBSettings, it stayed on the install screen for a good 30 minutes, than I shut it down, after that, Cydia was gone. So I went back to a legit 3.0, than tried to jailbreak again, nothing came it, it wouldn't even turn on, had to DFU back to a legit copy, than have the same thing happen again. This time I let it sit for a while, turned it off, a few times, than played a few games, hopefully it works...

    Also, what is the point of the install Cydia checkbox? Can you actually do any jailbroken activities without Cydia having been installed first?
