    "FAQ's" for Jailbreaking 3.0 f/w

    Ever had a WTF MOMENT? Need some help, but don't want to start a whole new thread? No Problem! VistaGenie is proud to present the "WTFaq's" for the 3.0 jailbreak.

    First off, i would like to say if you are jailbreaking your 3.0 ipod on windows, go to BILLAY's tutorial here

    Ok, here are the WTFaq's.

    Step 1:
    Q: I can't download it?
    A: You probably have a slow connection or you don't have flash player, if both of those fail then become a premium user at [PIRACY.rs]!

    Q: I downloaded it to my Desktop and it's not there?
    A: Check a downloads folder or go to folder options and click view hidden files and folders

    Step 2:
    Q: I can't extract the files?
    A: Just open the folder and drag and drop the files onto your desktop, or if that doesn't work download WinRAR

    Step 3:
    Q: I can't locate the file?
    A: Just go to folder options and click view hidden files and folders. If that doesn't work just search for "iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore"

    Step 4:
    Q: I have a mouse that can't right-click?
    A: Single left click on the file and click "ctrl+c" and then go to your desktop and click "ctrl+v" and it is copied

    Step 5:
    Q: I can't paste the file?
    A: Click ctrl+v

    Step 6:
    Q: My sound is on but i didnt hear the click? I followed the directions?
    A: Your sound has to be on on your computer to hear the sound, and just hold each thing a few seconds longer

    Step 7:
    Q: There is no folder called that?
    A: There should be 2 folders. One called MACOSX and one called "_____". Just click on the one not called MACOSX
    Q: I can't read the notepad files?
    A: You may somehow have notepad uninstalled. If not then try to uninstall it and reinstall it

    Step 8:
    Q: I'm on Windows XP and there is no "Windows XP Service Pack 2"
    A: If you are on windows XP you can skip steps 8 and 9

    Step 9:
    Q: None yet
    Q: None yet

    Step 10:
    Q: I double clicked on the file and it didn't run? (Vista)
    A: Do not double click on it. Right click and click Run as Administrator
    Q: I am the only account on my computer, am i Admin? (XP)
    A: You should be, but go to User Accounts to make sure

    Step 11:
    Q: I clicked on the firware i pasted and it said it wasn't identified
    A: Make sure that it was the 3.0 firmware

    Step 12:
    Q: My ipod was in DFU mode, but it didnt go?
    A: When you put it in DFU mode, make sure that you hold the buttons a little longer than it says
    Q: I don't want Cydia? (A.K.A. "I am stupid")
    A: Uncheck the "Install Cydia" box.

    Step 13 and P.S:
    Q: My ipod or redsn0w froze?
    A: Unplugg your ipod and to a hard reboot (hold both buttons). Then turn it back on.dsn0w froze?
    A: Unplugg your ipod and to a hard reboot (hold both buttons). Then turn it back on.

    Surely drag and drop is an easier option here, it is only one file.

    This is the most useless troubleshooting/advice guide I've read in my life, please give up, you know nothing useful.

    although the thread is just compiling what 100s of threads have said littering the forum, the BIG RED letters just seem try hard for a sticky. The mods will see what is useful and sticky it themselves
