I was trying to Jailbreak an iPhone 2G, iPod Touch using redsn0w 0.9 and interestingly enough, had the same issue “stuck at Waiting to reboot” message in redsn0w in both instances. I tried both Mac OS X Leopard and Win XP with no avail.
UPDATE : I faced the same issue with iPhone 3G and 3GS too! Fortunately enough, it has a simple solution.
Solution : When you see the ‘Waiting for reboot’ message in redsn0w, unplug the USB cable from the iPhone and plug it back in! Weird but it worked …

UPDATE : The following guide holds good only for iPhone 3GS 3.0 firmware. For 3.0.1 use redsn0w guide instead!
Geohot has done it again! He gave us the first jailbreak for iPhone 3GS and now, we have a much more efficient iPhone 3GS unlock – purplesn0w. Seriously, all the sn0w versions are confusing but well, that is their game!
For now, the iPhone 3GS should be activated using an official carrier before purplesn0w is installed on your iPhone 3GS. (Hacktivation for other carriers to follow soon)
Why is this unlock (purplesn0w) more reliable …

Themes support is one if the major features that jailbreaking your iPhone supports. Winterboard enables you to choose an array of beautifully designed themes.
Geohot’s jailbreak for iPhone 3GS was not playing well with Winterboard. Cydia’s Saurik released a revised mobilesubstrate which enables themes support the way we are all used to!
Launch Cydia and Click in refresh. You will find mobilesubstrate. Install it, reboot your iPhone and choose a lovely theme!
