Once you open redsn0w and the browse window opens for the 3.0 file. Try this, don't change the name. Next just highlight the name of the file and then copy and paste the name unto the open window and it should run.
just tried what u said it says file name not found when i open the folder in redsnow browse it says files not supported man ive been at this for 3 days on and off im stumpped and feel pretty dumb realy
Make sure you have the right IPSW 3.0. There is one for 3g and another for the 3GS. Check the other threads you will find them. A user named Trainman I think that name is right has put up alot of post and links on this topic.
