How to fix some mysterious problems.

My iphone isn't being recognised in DFU mode by the program that allows it to be jailbreak'd.

It just keeps getting me to retry, even though I hear the input device and iTunes says that I need to restore the device before doing anything (The DFU purpose?)

I'm stumped, I've tried doing it like 9 times and each time it doesn't recognise anywhere but in that popup in the bottom right and in iTunes.

:(

GP doen't support iphone 3G (readme), you can just use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 for an untethered jailbreak

Redsn0w does, and has for quite a while a now. You will need to have a copy of the 4.2.1 iphone 3g firmware to point RS at when it gives you the 'browse' window, if you don't have one you can get on from here, what's your unlock situation/needs, if any?

I really don't know, I just have Telstra (Australia) and the person who used the phone last was telstra as well and I just slipped my Sim Card in and it worked, so does that mean anything?

No, if it's locked to Telstra and you use Telstra then it's not really an issue for you, if you wanted to use another carrier then it may be of some interest to you.
