    Okay.

    iPhone first gen on 3.0 software.

    Do I just download redsn0w and do whatever it tells me to basically?

    or do I need to have 2.2.1 then upgrade to 3.0 while using redsn0w?

    I just want to make this really safe, If get even close to bricking my iphone I would flip out >.<

    I have a windows XP.

    Any precautions I should take?

    Upgrade to 3.0 and then use redsn0w. If you're just jailbreaking, your phone won't get bricked. If you're hacktivating or unlocking it, there might be issues, but 99.9% of the time there aren't.

    So I have 3.0 right now, Does that mean I have to downgrade then upgrade again?

    Sorry if this all seems like a really dumb question >.<

    No, just run redsn0w on your phone as is.

    No downgrade required just jailbreak on normal 3.0

    Hacktivating is using redsn0w to activate your phone, instead of doing it through Apple. Come to think of it, I'm not even sure if redsn0w can hacktivate iPhones.

    If you're going to unlock it to get service with another carrier, you would hacktivate it.

    since this is jb 3.0 question might as well put other question in this thread as well,

    QQ: anyone notice when you go into cydia, and when searching theres a list of alphabets on the right side so you choose which letter you want to go? well mine doesnt show that but just goes down the bottom of the list.

    EDIT: loading into apps gets kinda slow as well.
