Hello ! I try to jailbreak my iPhone 4 with redsnow 0.9.15b3 and my is firmware: iphone3,1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw. I go to Extra and I select my ISPW but I always get that error message:" that ipsw is not supported by this version of redsnow". I also downloaded many version of redsn0w but always the same error message.

I also use JailbreAk Tool for download correct jailbreaking tool compatible with my device but that tool doesn't work !

Can you help me with that ?

Thanks !

Try absinthe. Not many people use it but you don't need your IPSW.
