    Sure thing. If it is the first gen. Do a restore with iTunes up to 4.3.3. Then Google redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc16. If you are using Windows 7 right click on the install file and change it to run in compatibility mode for XP Service Pack 3. Have the 4.3.3 firmware handy because you will need to point to it in redsnow.

    Just don't forget to save blob in Cydia if you have not already... Never know when you need to roll back :p
