iPhone 2G 3.0 Custom Firmware Jailbreak & Unlock (Windows and Mac)

Advertisements

pwnagetool-pwned The newest iPhone 2G 3.0 firmware update from Apple was released two days ago and iPhone Dev Team’s Pwnage Tool has just been released today. With PwnageTool, you can create your own custom iPhone 2G firmware from Apple’s official IPSW file so that you can continue to run your jailbroken apps. The 3.0 firmware update does not contain any baseband firmware update (unlike the 3G). Jailbreaking is only possible with a custom firmware created with Pwnage Tool that adds in the Cydia and Installer programs as well as BootNeuter so you can continue to use your iPhone 2G unlocked. This is great… if you have a Mac. Windows users are left in the dark for now, at least until QuickPwn for Windows gets released.

Warning : This only works, however, if you’ve previously pwned your iPhone before. With this firmware update, you simply need to put your iPhone in DFU recovery mode, launch iTunes and shift-click (Mac users option-click) on restore and browse to this custom firmware and use it to update your iPhone’s firmware. And that’s it. Since you’ve previously pwned your iPhone before, QuickPwn isn’t necessary for you and you won’t need to wait for QuickPwn Windows to be release. If it hasn’t been Pwned before, then you’re out of luck and you’ll need to wait. Remember we are talking about Pwned not QuickPwned

Step One : Download the iPhone 2G Custom_Restore.ipsw from Your source. We doesn’t provide links for custom firmware because its against Apples Terms. This Custom Firmware is made by the Pwnage tool for Mac. It also contains Cydia which requires later installing you Jailbreaked applications. Once you get the firmware then we can start the procedure.

Step Two : Put your iPhone in to DFU mode.

Method 1)

  • Attach the phone to the pc
  • Turn the phone off
  • Hold power and home together for *exactly* 10 seconds
  • Release power but keep holding home until the pc beeps as a USB device is recognized.
  • At no point will the display come on. Now your restore should work.

Method 2)

  • Attach the phone to the pc
  • Turn the phone off
  • Press and hold power. Keep holding power. As soon as you see display on the screen of any sort press and hold home.
  • Hold power and home together for *exactly* 10 seconds
  • Release power but keep holding home until the pc beeps as a USB device is recognized.
  • At no point will the display come on. Now your restore should work.

Having problems? Try adjusting the 10 seconds to be slightly less like 9 seconds, then 8, then 7. It’s a tricky timing but you will eventually get it.

Step Three : This step is very familiar to you Launch iTunes and shift-click on the Restore button (option click for Mac users). Then browse to the custom restore 3.0 firmware you downloaded from us and let iTunes do the rest. Once the upgrade is finished BootNeuter will appear and and completes the unlock process of your iPhone. After 5 minutes you’ll have a Jailbreaked and Unlocked iPhone in Your Hands.
