Hi,

I wanted to Jailbreak my 3gs iPhone and watched the Tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXlzLP1hbKE . I downloaded the CORRECT IPSW File for 3GS and the redsnow data. When I set the IPSW to the one I downloaded I cant jailbreak because the error message "Failed to decrypt Kernel" appears.

Now what to do?

What's the full filename of the ipsw you're using?

That's the wrong ipsw. You need iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw.
