New Jailbreaker - AT&T - Windows - Jailbreak only, no unlock
Hey, here's my deal.
I don't want to unlock my iPhone. I am okwith AT&T service. But like many previous posters have said, I want to only jailbreak my device so that I can use third party application from Cydia and Icy.
I have already upgraded to 3.0.
I'm running a Windows Vista OS.
Now, for my question -
Can someone please treat me like an *****, or a child, and explain to me
STEP BY STEP, IN DETAIL
how I would go about jailbreaking 3.0?
When I say "in detail", I mean like, say stuff like "click this button after this step, click that button after this step, wait 30 seconds for this step", so on and so forth.
Basically, treat me like I have a learning impairment, because I want the most detailed walkthrough created for this process.
And trust me, I'm not the only one. There are SO ma y people I have spoken to who really WANT to jailbreak, but the process scares the crap out of them. I'm also one of those people.
So to the person who will post this details, step-by-step walkthrough (hell, feel free to include screen shots too, we love them!), you would literally be a hero to many of us potential jailbreakers.
Feel free to post a troubleshooting section too, so that when things go wrong, we don't go running around crying about our iBrick.
Seriously, I'm begging someone to do this.....

[Guide] RedSn0w Jailbreak For 3.0 Firmware
Seen a few people still asking how to jailbreak their iPod/Phone with redsn0w still. So decided to post a guide.
This guide is for both WINDOWS and MAC.
Note: This guide is written from a windows user, Yet it should be straight forward to do if your a mac user.
Before I start this jailbreak will only jailbreak the following devices:
iPod Touch 1st Generation
iPod Touch 2nd Generation
iPhone (also unlocks this device.)
NOTE: IT WILL NOT JAILBREAK THE IPHONE 3GS!!!
Okay lets get started on the guide.
Restore/Upgrade your device to 3.0 Via iTunes. This should start a download then the restore process.
While the 3.0 firmware is downloading. Download RedSn0w from one of the following links:
Mac - Here
Windows - Here
Once downloaded create a new folder on your desktop and extract the .zip file into it.
Once your 3.0 firmware is downloaded and installed on your device. Locate on your computer:
For iPhone -
C:\Users\YOUR-USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
For iPod -
C:\Users\YOUR-USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
Note: If you do not see AppData go to folder options and tick 'Show Hidden Files/folder'
Once in that folder you will see your 3.0 Firmware, It will have a name similar to iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw or iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
Copy that file into the RedSn0w folder you created on your desktop (to make it easier to locate, you can delete it after you've jailbroken your device)
Plug your device into your computer and turn it off. (Do not plug in through a usb hub, plug directly into a back port if possible).
Launch redsn0w.exe (or the mac version if your a mac user)
You will get a screen where you are asked to locate your .ipsw file. Click browse and navigate to the file you copied earlier on.
Read over the next steps until you get to the one where it checks to make sure you are plugged in and turned off.
Get prepared to boot your device into DFU mode when clicking next.
Click next when ready and follow the steps to boot into DFU mode.
Once booted into DFU the jailbreak will start being loaded onto your device. Once the jailbreak process has been completed, Your device will be successfully jailbroken.
