      I have iphone 3G currently on os 2.2

      I downloaded the firmware 3.0 and redsnow 0.8. When i double click on the redsnow.exe and browse for .ipsw file, redsnow doesn’t recognise it.

      I downloaded it way back when 3.0 came out from itunes (so the files fine), just didn’t upgrade.

      My question is, does the phone have to be on 3.0 for redsnow to recognise the .ipsw? or its just my pc’s problem, coz i cannot afford to upgrade and not jailbreak as i need the unlock.

      First of all I want to thank you for the great tutorial. I managed to update my iPhone 3G to 3.0 and Jailbreak it using redsn0w ver 0.8, unfortunately after the jailbreak, for some reason I can no longer access the internet, even with my wifi. Any information would be really appreciated. Thank you

      I downloaded and installed the FW as directed onto my 3G.

      It’s stuck at:
      – “Downloading Jailbreak Data” on phone
      – “Uploading Kernel” on laptop

      It’s been there for about an hour now.

      Then all of a sudden, my iphone turned off… and the screen is blank!!

      But the screen on the computer is the exact same!!

      And it’s been stuck there for a while now.

      Never mind my other post, got i working now.

      All i did was:

      1. downgraded the iphone using iTunes 9.2 til FW 3.0.1

      2. ignored the 1015 error.

      3. rebooted the device.

      4. used redsn0w with FW 3.0 to JB (remember cydia)

      5. used cydia to DL ultrasn0w and unlocked.

      6. used fuzzyband to downgrade bandbase from 5.08 to 4.26.08

      i did this a couple of times, before it worked. i recoment that you use iRecovery to clear the device if it dosent work.

      Now that was my brothers phone.

      my own phone have bandbase 5.09, which is a pain.
      I have an old ‘Mr. Unlocking’ SIM card addon chip, i tryed with it the ultrasn0w unlock, and it did something that allowed me to see my serviceproviders, which i coundt seen before. besides that no change what so ever.

      ill just have to wait til the devs update fuzzy to DG 5.09 😀 but i use skype with wifi at home and at work, which its okay, while i wait.

      thx to Vinay and devs for taking time to help us

      I did the exact steps everything worked fine until I got to step 6. It was stuck on that page, wasn’t doing anything for a while. I have the redsn0w 0.8
      How can I fix this problem?

    11. Troest September 29, 2009 Reply


      I got a iPhone 3g from a friend who got the 3gs.. repaired the cracked screen.
      Now im trying to JB it following you guide. First i downgraded it to 3.0 following you guide (http://www.ihackintosh.com/2009/09/how-to-downgrade-iphone-os-3-1-to-3-0-for-iphone-2g-3g-3gs/)
      then iTunes gave me the 1015 error message.. and i ignored it as you said i should. then i used redsn0w to JB and after it downloaded the JB data to the phone, it paused the install at INstallng Activation Bundles for 15-20 min it restarts and it is stuck in the ‘connect USB to iTunes icon’ mode.
      Done a couple of times with same outcome.. not sure what to do next. og how even get t back to normal without installing 3.1.
      The plan is to unlock it.. but after i JB it, do i need a valid SIM to over it and unlock it?

      To Sheldon & Navjit : you may read “Get Rid of iPhone from Recovery Mode Loop on Restart” – another iHackintosh article.
      Need to read over & over the procedure in the article (+ the comments)since it is not straight forward.

      It works for some cases (read the comments) but unfortunately it did not work for me.
      Finally, I went to cell phone shop & paid them to fix my iphone (ouch ..).

      I have a problem, every time i install firmware 3.0 i get the 1015 error message and i continue with redst0rm and it works fine until it gets to the waiting for reboot screen and it spends all day there and never moves forward. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help.

      Hi. I followed all the direction just as said. It s running smoothly but then it came back to the Recovery screen. I don’t know why. Any help?

      Can someone help, I followed all the steps but when its done jailbreaking it reboots and itunes detects a iphone in recovery mode still, what is the problem anyone know I would really appreciate it…

      My iphone 3G (OS 2.2.1 FW04.26.08) was successfully jailbroken & unlocked.
      Then I upgraded into OS 3.0 & jailbroke following the steps in this article but ended up in Restore Mode (showing iTunes & USB plug). Re-did the procedure several times & having the same result. Pressing power & home did not help.
      I am using Vista Home Premuim Service Pack 1.

      Ok Guys, Here is my dilema.

      I ran the jailbreak redsn0w version .8 and then used the 3.0 ipsw. So far so good it works then run the updates in cydia and thats fine. Then I goto install cracked programs from Installious then reboot the Iphone 3g and it bricks everytime after powering it off then on. However if I just leave the phone on its fine. Any Ideas would greatly be appreceited.

      I am running Vista Premium 32
      Iphone 3g 16g on baseband 5.11.04

      if you need more details email me

      When it gets to the rebooting screen and freezs just unplug it and plug it back in real quick
      It worked for me

    22. Randi August 16, 2009 Reply

      A huge “thank you” from Norway!
      I tried like a 145 times before it finally worked!
      If you get the “unable to recognize specified IPSW” message, try to install Mozilla Firefox, and download the iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore link through FireFox.
      That worked for me.

      Good luck, and keep up the good work!

      Hey guys! Well I have an Iphone 3G, Not jailbroken or unlocked yet. And It currently has a 3.0 FW, I was wondering if I needed an At&t Sim card to bypass the emergency calls only screen? or does redsnow already do that for us? I’m trying to unlock it for T-mobile. Thank you. Best regards.

      credit to gerd2005,got it from the forums juz passing it on those having issues saving the firmware

      How to change .ZIP to .IPSW in Windows XP

      Majority of users are experiencing their firmware downloads in ZIP format. This guide will help you convert that pesky ZIP file into a usable IPSW firmware file.

      1. Download the firmware, remember where you have saved the file so you can open the folder later.
      note: I suggest not saving it to Desktop

      2. Open up Windows Explorers (Start>Programs>Accessories)

      3. Once Windows Explorer is up and running, click on “Tools” and select “Folder Options…”

      4. At the top tabs, click on “View” and you should see “Advanced settings:”. Inside this box there a many options which you can click and unclick. You will need to find “Hide extensions for known file tyes” and untick it to show the extension.

      5. Once you have that done, open the folder where you have saved your firmware and change ONLY the extension. eg .zip > .ipsw

      6. YOUR DONE! You can restore the viewing options in Windows Explorer or you can leave it as is.

      Hi, I had the same issues with the iphone going into recovery mode at the end of the jailbreak and also it hanging saying “waiting for reboot”. I tried this at least 10 times on Windows Vista Premium 64 bit and failed everytime. I switched to Windows Vista Home 32 bit and the jailbreak worked the very first time I tried it.

I waited for hours, but nothing happened. I even followed your instructions to restart the process, I attempted many times without success. Can you help me? Thanks.

      Followed this tutorial, and everything worked out great. I started downloading some apps from cydia, but one required me to restart and now my phone is stuck on the boot screen [apple logo]

      what do i do now? do i need to restore? and how do i do that because when I plugged it in, itunes isn’t detecting my phone

      • Vinay June 29, 2009 Reply

        @ Sarah Turn off your phone by pressing and holding home and power button together for 15-25 seconds. Now when your phone is turned off press and hold your home button and plug your phone in to computer and your phone will be pushed in to recovery mode and after that you can restore your phone to 3.0 again.

      I’ve tried this process several times from my macbook. The problem I’m running into is once I launch redsnow and click the browse button, I’m not finding any ‘firmware’. There is a firmware folder, but there are only 2 options in it: A folder called all_flash and another folder called DFU. When I click in either folder, there is no firmware (.ipsw) file. What am I doing wrong?

      Sherry indicated that she had the same problem and you said there was a problem with the download. I have attempted to re-download multiple times, but cannot end up with the cube on my desktop. No matter what I do, I can’t download and save as .ipsw. Any ideas?

        @ Joe2974 & Everyone who uses Mac & Safari : If you are using Safari and want to download a .ispw follow this guide to change a setting and everything will be good.

        @ Zuh Yes you need to get WiFi in working because UltraSn0w will be released on Cydia and in order to install UltraSn0w you have an working WiFi connection on your iPhone. Remember there is no other way. If you have Gray WiFi then try to reinstall and jailbreak your iPhone.

      1-if I upgrade to 3.0 using the redSnow, will my TourboSim stops?
      2-if I don’t upgrade and keep my existing 2.2.1 and 2.30, will I be able to unlock using the long awaited UtltraSn0w?

        @ Bassrawee First of all if you updates to OS 3.0 your BAseband will updates to 4.28 and i m not sure that TurboSim updates it. Keep using with TurboSimuntil UltraSn0w is released.

        @ FHB Yup WinterBoard works very smoothly with 3.0 just installed Palm Pre and Saw themes 😉

        @ Super Tare Yup, this guide is for Jailbreaking only we have to wait for UltraSn0w release (around the corner) will update the blog with a how to guide after the release.
        @Zuh WiFi and YouTube are working great after Jailbreaking my 3G.
        @ Valentin Press and Hold Power and Home button for 15-25 seconds and after restart follow the procedure again.
        @ Seep No this guide is for 3G only you have to wait for Dev team release. Subscribe our free once in a day news letter and stay updated.

        @ WindowsScorpion To enable tethering i m working on a guide will update you very soon. There are lots of tricks you can Google but i m looking for the simple and easy.
        @ Arno Try changing the USB port and USB cable also note RedSn0w is causing some problems in Vista so if possible use XP.
        @Jenna Upgrade Directly to 3.0 With Shift + Restore in iTunes and then follow the guide. you can keep the SIM inside the phone during the process. Seems you are doing this first time so read the guide twice or thrice before doing anything. DFU mode is the main step. Don’t worry if you do any thing wrong that can be traceable.

        @ Faheem @ Eric Thanx guys for pointing the error 🙂
