Anyhow, you need redsn0w and the 3g IPSW file for a iPhone 3g. Hopefully you can get er Jailbroken :) Good Luck!

Btw if you google search the Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 you can find Redmondpie listed first and its a very good tutorial.

It doesn't support the iphone 3G, use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 or Sn0wbreeze for an untethered jailbreak.

I've helped several peeps here. I provided direct links so they didnt have to go and search and try to figure out what went where. No ads or spam on the site I posted. Just honest help and information that has helped several. Ive posted it on several questions before with no issues.
I figure if people are here asking so many questions that instead of just saying, look for this file, the best answer would be a site where they can get direct help without so much research and guesswork. :) Dont have a private send no where, just here. And its all good either way. Just wanted to share that.

Cool, here's a reputable site, often linked to by jailbreak Devs where anyone can get detailed pictured tutorials with links to everything that's needed -

Whats the difference in linking iClarified (good site btw) where its still cumbersome to find a directness to the question of jailbreaking a 3g with redsnow and linking them directly to the site I had that had direct links and to the point, without sifting through their stuff? I really dont know and Im just asking. Since I cant send a private message to you this will have to do :) But I really dont see the difference. :) Thanks JJMAN

I'm sorry you feel like that, but I went to your site clicked on the link to jailbreak iphone3G, got taken to another site for instruction, which had outdated Redsn0w downloads from mirrors. I just don't understand why people can't give reputable links, iclarified is reputable and downloading Redsn0w or any other jailbreak tool can only be recommended to be done from source.
