    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.

    Hint - Not all users are aware of sigs, particularly if they are using the IPF app because the display of sigs is turned OFF by default!

    A jailbreak guru would have suggested you look at the jailbreak upgrade sticky in our hacking section - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...des/26399-how-upgrade-your-ios-jailbreak.html

    :D

    And remember, search is your friend. We have loads of good stickies and threads in the both the hacking and tutorials sections... ;)
