Redsnow is waiting for reboot

I always used either pawnage or quickpwn tools to unlock/jailbreak my iPhone but yesterday I gave a go to another tool from the iPhobe Dev-Team called RedSnow which provides similar functionality to quickpwn. Said and done, I installed required package, upgraded my phone to 3.0.1 release and fired up the redsnow thoroughly following the instructions. I happily entered DFU when redsnow got stalled saying “Waiting for reboot”. From my previous experience I knew that it’s not a very bright idea to interrupt the process in the middle but after waiting for 20 minutes I had enough and boldly unplugged the phone from the usb port. Since there was no magical smoke coming out of the phone I sticked it back and by a miracle redsnow got awakened and continued its job. At first I took it as a coincidence so when the unlocking/jailbreaking was over and I decided to give it another spin by repeating the previous steps with one single exception – not to wait a second but disconnect the phone as soon as redsnow starts waving with “Waiting for reboot” message. And it worked out again with no glitches! So if you’ve been gazing at “Waiting for reboot” for half of the day just unplug and plug your iphone back into usb. The ending crowns the work!
