    ok, i tried to jailbreak my phone for the first time using this tutorial,
    http://www.iphone-hacks.com/2009/08/...-with-redsn0w/

    dumb ass me didnt check to see if it would work on the iPhone 3g S, which i have, I dont' know if thats the problem.

    i started and worked out fine untill it was loading in the exploit. Then, to my horror, redsn0w Crashed. and my iPhone was stuck on the "downloading Jailbreak Data..." screen.

    It wont shut off or anything.
    I tried to reconnect it and it is an unrecognized usb. iTunes does not see it....I am shitting bricks,

    any help would be awesome :(

    ok try this, hold the power and home button for 25 seconds it should shut off then

    enter recovery mode via this

    hold power button for 3 seconds

    continue to hold power and press the home button

    hold the home button and power for 10 seconds

    release the power button and hold home for 30 seconds (it doesnt take that long but you should see the logo after a bit thats when its safe to let go)

    from there you can click restore and itunes will fix it

    My redsnow crashed many times. I just read your tutorial which is nothing. This tutorial missed many important steps. I am still looking for a good tutorial. If I get one, I will share it.
