I had stated previously i jailbroke and flashed basebands on my iphone 3g to unlock it. Ultrasn0w did not unlock it. Researched more and came upon downgrading basebands. The particular version of redsn0w to do this will not detect my ddevice in dfu yet itunes does. I am on a windows 8 pc which complicates things enough. Despite my efforts for two days now i am getting nowhere. Does anyone have any help that works?

Try using redsn0w 9.14b2 which works best for older devices. Selecting ipsw in extras also helps before clicking jailbreak button.

That is the exact version i have been using. I get the same result every time. It wont detect my device but itunes does.

Did you run Redsn0w in compatibility mode xp SP3 and also as Administrator.

Im on windows 8 and it doesnt give you that option. But im signed into the pc as administrator.

This could be the issue. Need to get hold of appropriate OS or a Mac.

Good Luck

I wonder if downgrading the os on the phone to 4.1 and using fuzzyband will work.
