And no it wont effect your contract with o2, just restore it if you get any problems and have to take the phone back

sounds a bit iffy to me. why do you need quicktime when you are trying to jailbrake your phone anyway?

because itunes wont open up without it, when i click to open itunes the error message come up 'quicktime was not found' 'quicktime is reguired to run itunes, please uninstall then reinstall itunes'

i need to access itunes when jailbreaking my iphone right?

oh right, im following this guide http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4447 and step 2 says connect to itunes to restore your iphone, is this not necessary?

thanks for your input by the way.:thumbsup:

Ok so im using itunes 8.2.1 and the software installed on my iphone is 3.0.. i tried to download the software 3.0 file off the iclarified website but it downloads to a .zip file and i cant seem to extract the necessary file required to do a restore in itunes, is it essential to restore my iphone before i jailbreak it (iv downloaded quite afew free apps since iv had it etc.) or can i just literally download the redsn0w software and carry on through the steps?

yeah you need to restore to the firmware on that site for it to work, you can't just use the firmware that is already on the iphone, even if it is 3.0

you should be able to extract it with winrar?
