    I have a iPhone 3gs And am new to jailbreaking. Which program would you reccomend to jailbreak using a mac. I am running 3.0.1 so I cannot use some but I am willing to wait till the developers do make a new 1. So any program that runs on mac I will use or wait for. Suggestions which is best and easiest.

    You need to use the 3.0 firmware, redsn0w will not recognize 3.0.1 at this time as a valid firmware.

    Unless redsnow has been updated, it does not work with 3.0.1. You need to restore with iTunes to 3.0.1 for the 3GS, then put the 3.0 firmware in the same folder as redsn0w .8. Click on red snow, browse to the 3.0 firmware that is in the same folder as redsn0w, then follow the directions.
