    sorry if im being a little unclear, Ive read 100 posts and 200 videos on this, and it seems really easy but when I do it, it doesn't seem to work or go as smooth.

    as i said before in my opening posts I downloaded those 2 items and when I click Browse to confirm my IPSW for the ipad to jailbreak it says "Not Recognized" Is my IPSW incorrect? I downloaded the one you told me to dude.

    Info:
    Mac OS ----> laptop
    Version: 4.2.1 (8C148)
    Model: MB
    16GB ($499.99)
    I followed the instructions, and soon as I hit browse, again it says "IPSW Not Recognized).

    Thank you for all your help

    It is either the wrong iPSW file or it did not download correctly (corrupted). That would seem to make sence since you were unable to get iTunes to download it either. Is your internet connection reliable?
    How big is the file exactly?

    no my internet connection is reliable and fast its by Optimum Online (cable). Im not at home at the moment but i posted the names of the files and verisons of redsn0w and the IPSW for my IPAD in the previous post. Can you provide me with correct downloads, maybe Iclarified had some old links on there?

    Thanks

    Well, I just followed the link on the iClarrified tutorial which I PM'd you.
    It downloaded the IPSW from Apple servers and I ran it through redsn0w and it works OK. Afraid I don't know how else to help you...
