    when i run redsnow the first step asks for the ipsw of my current firmware. what is a IPSW?, i have a 3.1.2 update file, but redsnow can't load it.
    (the ipod i want to update is on 3.1.2 but is in recovery mode because of a blackrain messup)

    Run blackra1n again? Your iPod may be tethered.

    Allright, from what I've seen you need 3.1.2 IPSW file on your computer. You said that 3.1.2 file didn't work, so try another one.

    it asks for a corresponding IPSW for my current firmware, i give it my 3.1.2 file, and it says "processing frimware" for a second, then "unable to recognize specified IPSW"

    Ok, do you have a instant messenger? I'll be able to help you out easier. I just downloaded RedSn0w and ran my firmware and it worked so i can help.
