    I want to run redsn0w 0.9.7b3 but its currently only on Mac OS X and I do not want to go through all tons of crap
    and install VMWare to run it on virtual pc any suggestions?

    Simplest option is to wait a few days, comex's JailbreakMe 3.0 is meant to be released on Friday, so you can have untethered jailbreak then. Redsn0w for Windows should be out in the next few weeks too. Unless you happen to know someone who has a Mac, and you have 4.2b3 IPSW and SHSH blobs, I'd strongly recommend waiting for JailbreakMe 3.0, deal with tethered jailbreak till then if you already updated.

    it's not worth the hassle of installing mac just to use redsn0w your better off waiting patiently until the windows version comes out.(or if you have a friend you know who has a mac, use there's)

    or use virtualbox [​IMG]

    There is no way for you to use redsn0w untethered in this case. If you have 4.1 blobs, they may be used by a future version of redsn0w, but if not, you must rely on JailbreakMe 3.0 for untethered 4.2.1 jailbreak.

    Just do it tethered for now, you most likely won't turn it off.

    Jailbreak Me 3.0 should be my best option because I do not thing the 4.2.1 blob I have now will work

    If you mean locked, then that is OK and won't lose jailbreak. You can still power on without re-jailbreaking, but any jailbreak apps will not work, so if you have any Mobile Substrate stuff (e.g. winterboard, any springboard mods etc.), your iPod will most likely freeze on boot.

    can someone point me in the direction where I can keep updated with Jailbreak Me 3.0
    and will I need my 4.2b3 blob to get untethered?

    Keep an eye on any tech blog, or on @comex's twitter account [http://www.twitter.com/comex]

    And no, JailbreakMe 3.0 will untether without any blobs.
