Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until Red Sn0w detects the device.Step Eleven Your device will be detected once in DFU mode and exploited with Limera1n. Step Twelve Redsn0w will now restore the device to the new firmware.
You will have to connect your device to your computer and open i Tunes in order to upgrade.Now you will be able to tell i Tunes to use the IPSW file you downloaded to update / restore your i Phone/i Pod NOTE: To be able to download i Phone/i Pod firmware directly from Apple you will have to follow these steps: 1. See the chart below to determine whether you can upgrade your device and what you can upgrade to.Can it be updated any further and how would she do this?when the phone is plugged into i Tunes and we click the update button is just says i Tunes is running the latest version and doesn't update the phone. Many thanks Jen If it is truly a 3GS and not a 3G just connect it to a computer with the latest version of i Tunes (v11) and click the "Update" button in i Tunes. Normally if you choose to update, the i Phone or i Pod software is updated but your settings and media are not affected.
If your device currently has a software version prior to 2.0 (1.x) and you are updating to software version 2.0 or later, all data on your device will be erased in order to perform install the new software.
If you choose to restore, all data is erased from i Phone or i Pod, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data.
All i Phone or i Pod settings are restored to their factory condition. Do not disconnect your i Phone until the update has finished.

In this case, i Tunes will offer to create a one-time media backup of your device depending on what content is on your device and what content is stored in the i Tunes Library you are connected to.
