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?

iPhone2,1_6.0.1:10A523_Restore.ipsw

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