I’m probably very late to update to 3.0 firmware now, but this is my problem.
I have an iphone 2G firmware 2.2.1 and want to upgrade to 3.0
Looked around but didn’t find any method to update to 3.1 from 2.2.1 on the 2g phone.
I already have itunes 9.0 installed.
Is there some way to upgrade from 2.2.1 to 3.1 on the 2G phone? If not, can I safely upgrade my phone to 3.0 using itunes 9.0?

I upgraded my unlocked & jailbreaked iphone 2g from 2.0 to 3.0.1 using itunes 126.96.36.199… so as expected it got locked… I tried to jailbreak it using redsnow 0.8, but no luck at all…
can u give me some advice plz, I’m really feeling desperate right now.
thanx in advance…
I updated my old Iphone to the latest sorftware (3.0) in Itunes. When I use redsnow to jailbreak it, the computer doesnt recognize the iphone in DFU mode. Where can I find a driver for this or are there other sulutions?
when rebooting iphione by holding home-button and startbuttun at the same time, then releasing startbutton after 10 secs etc — the computer nows there is some usb unit connected but cannot tell what it is. This means the redsnow program does not connect with the iphone to compleete the jailbrake.
vinay yar mra fone 3.0 upgrade h gya hai muj se ab wo lock h gya hai is k liae muje kia krna h ga ise unlock krne k liae muje konsa software chahiae kindly mujy is ka answer chahiae
@ Nabeel Follow the instruction given above to unlock the phone..
helo sombody please help me,i have new iphone 3g,( with unsupported carrier sim , i live in india, vodafone connection)it worked fine until when i tried to update my iphone to 3.0, but after finishing my update its saying emergency calls, connect to itune!!! is there a way to roll back. can i follow these procedure to rollback my changes… i am using itunes 8.2
@ Bluecrush If you have a legit SIM from Vodafone then call the customer care they will redirect you to how to activate your phone. The post you are seeing above is for Unlocking means you can use any sim like idea, bsnl on iPhone. Since you are on official carrier so you need to activate through iTunes..
i, i ve restore my 2g to 3.0 and when i try to jailbreak it using redsnow
it stops at the final stage saying(waiting for reboot)..its not even askin for the baseband bootloaders..
So I’m new to the iphone and i need a lot of help, PLEASE. I just got a 2g 16g, i bought it locked but updated to 3.0. I downloaded the 3.0 upgrade software, but the Pwnage software, and two bootloader files, when it downloads, a blank sheet of paper and will not open, this is the error reading:
“Safari can’t open the file “bl39.bin” because no available application can open it.”
I have read a million times how to unlock and jailbreak, but I am so stuck right now. Can someone tell me what i’m missing on my computer to open these files? And I don’t want to kill my iphone in the process, so i’m really scared to play around too much, simply cause i don’t know what i am doing. I currently have a macbook, osx, 10.4.11
This may or may not matter. Thank you.
i don’t know mine is lock or what but the thing is ” it say connected to itune and i can use ph call as a emergency call “. And other problem is i can’t control my phone like b4. If somebody happen like me, Please write down how did u pass thru this situation.
I updated from OS2.2 which had baseband from 1.1.4 of 04.04.05 but when I updated to OS3 it did lock the phone and once unlocked the baseband did actually change to 04.05.04.
I need to keep the 04.04.05 baseband so does anyone have a custom OS3 firmware version that will not touch the baseband or an unlock process (if its that which is changing it) that will not change the baseband at all.
my 2G was unlockd/jailbrk by someone using a PC its has CYDIA, INSTALLER, BOSSPREF and many apps
-It works fine. I connect to a MAC running iTunes 8.2
– It runs the v2.2 – never updated to v2.2.1 since I understood it was a minor update.
Now I wish to update to v3 but I’m afraid it becomes locked/jailed or, worse, becomes a brick
What is the best way to go? Thanks for your help.
I upgraded to the 3.0 software today on a 2g phone. However the sms picture option did not show up and swirlymms will not work with this software….anyone?
so can i upgrade to 3 from 2.1 through iTunes, on a 1st gen 2g, or do i need to go to 2.2.1 first?

I have a question. I have a unlocked and working iphone 2g that was done with QuickPWN. I just want to upgrade to 3.0, can I just press the “check for update button” on itunes 8.2 and do it through itunes or do I have to through different methods?
Hi…Following your forum, I have an Iphone 1.1.2, According to your post should Update (Not Restore) your iPhone from 1.1.x to 2.0.2 and then to 3.0, Now updating to lower versions(<3) is not possible on iTunes…Let me know how to proceed. I have downgraded iTunes 8.2 to 8.1 though.

I upgrade my iphone 2G to 3.0v.I have only 2 problems:
When i call i have this message always Call Forwarding Active.
Do You know how can i fix this, not to pop up every time when i calling?
And the other thing is how to fix localisation for Israel?
For example if the contact was recorded as 0544717245, then didn’t know who is calling, so
i want to fix also this.Do You know how?
Hi, I’m new in iPhone 2G. I successfully updated from 2.2.1 to 3.0 using the release 7A341. The SIM works fine for Indonesia. But I can’t see the Cydia icon in 3.0 which I had in 2.2.1. I updated using iTunes but not through DFU mode, just connected & update using the firmware file. Also, no MMS function & video camera capture. Are these features only for 3G? Thanks.
i own an iphone 2G and i updated to 3.0 from the iTunes update..
right now i’m unable to have access to my iphone at all, since i have an invalid SIM..
any hints on how to bypass that and get to install the custom 3.0 firmware?
thanks in advance
So… this is my story… i was courious and decided to go a different way. i had a 2g Iphone with 2.0.1 and Cydia installed. Since i had 2.0.1 i assumed things would be similar t0 2.0.2. (note i used Quickpwn a while ago (NOT RC3) to unlock and jailbreak)
SO… i went directly to the updatewith Itunes 8.2 and after all the process. i got a locked iphone but jailbroken, i mean. i can do and receive phone calls but can’t get tthough the Emergency call screen.
I don’t lose faith, but just would like to know what is the root cause for this behavior?
does QUICKPWN RC3 does something different than the normal QUICKPWN and thus it keps the phone unlocked after the update? or does it has something to do with Cydia?
I will try going back to 2.0.2 and the up again.
I updated my phone to the 3.0 os by accident and am now locked out of my phone; tried everything, using the custom 3.0 restore
went to itunes 8.1.1 and tried using the 2.0.2 restore as in this guide and there is always the error 1600, 1601, 1602
I really need my phone to get fixed no idea what to do, any help would be grateful
Hello it is sayd you need to restor to 2.0.2 , would it work if i have a QUICKPWNed 2.0.1 2G ihpone?… and also.. since i did it long time ago, i did checked the CYDIA option, should i go and do the 2.0.2 update and then go for 3.0 .. or can i do directly to 3.0
Thanks and great Job on this.
HI,im lost,i have the 3.0 firmware on my iphone..i can understand that i need itunes 8.1…but i already have 8.2..how can i get the 8.1 version now???and its friday..where’s quickpwn dear devteam??thx.do rep

Worked flawlessly for me today, now all I need is a jailbreak, I saw no improvement in speed though. Anyone see different, and i just downloaded the 3.0 update from itunes after installing 8.2 and it worked fine. Very easy guide thanks a lot. Cocoa
It Worked!!!! I used 8.2 beta for all the steps!!!! U rock Vinay bhaiyaa!!!

Omg I was so Scared Doing updating my iphone,But it worked Thank you so very much.Im a little phone Crazy but when It finished updating.I had tears of joy haha.What made me so nervous was their was a bunch of instructions for windows.Mac was so easy to update Thank you again
Hi works well except Youtube and locate me
I successfully upgraded my iPhone 2G to 3.0 using the method outlined above however I now have no cellular data network coverage. I am in the uk on O2 (but not an iPhone contract) is there a workaround for this?
Thanks a lot from Switzerland!
Worked perfectly! Now my unofficial 2G iPhone finally runs 0S 3.0! =)
now let’s wait for the dev team to release the final jailbreak for 3.0 including cydia…
Vinay, sorry to be so insistent but you are the only source that has been helpful. Why won’t itunes 8.2 on a different computer than the one I used to unlock the iphone not recognize it? when I connect it I get an error message saying that an iphone has been detected but not recogmized and that i should disconnect and reconnet which i have done numerous times! any thoughts?
Vinay, Thank you so much! I did updated firmware today on iPhone 2G worked out great without any problems. Thank you.
i have a iphone 2G with 2.2.1 and i pwned it with windows but with a custommade firmware made on a mac.
so if i wanna update is it ok when i only open my itunes (8.2) and chosse the “iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw”? i would update on my mac not win. or do i have always have to downgrade and use DFu mode? =o
thx in advance Vinay
hi, i ve restore my 3g to 3.0 and my baseband has update… now what shall i do……… pls let me know
Vinay! Thanks!! But i have iTunes 8.2 and my iphone does not work now from yesterday i’d try to change fron 1.1.4 to 2.2.1……..Argggggg! Now I have a nice paperweight!!!!
@ Inma If you are trying to upgrade or doengrade below OS 3.0 you should have iTunes 8.1 or 8.0 but when it comes to OS 3.0 iTunes should be 8.2
@ Afnan Man there is no such way to downgrade baseband from OS 3.0 now wait for Dev Team announcement and you can contact me email@example.com after dev team release.
@ Tom You needn’t to put you iPhone in DFU mode just go fro a clean update to 3.0 with iTunes 8.2
@ Montino Here is the guide especially made for you Error iPhone is not recognized in iTunes Windows & Mac Post your comment on this post after your problem is resolved.
Vinay, you are incredibly helpful! I just read your reply regarding You tube. I guess now the phone is unlocked but not jailbreak-ed? Is that correct? Is that also the reason why the iphone is not recognized (it sees it but asks that I reconnect) by a different computer than the one I used to unlock it? even if it has itunes 8.2?
I apologize for the barrage of questions…a newbie here 😉
You’re a genius. Works like a charm!
One quick note though; on windows pc, Shift-click is equivalent to option-click IN THIS SCENARIO (it’s usually alt-click), this caused me some headache at first; hope this saves somebody some time.
does anyone know how to enable the mms function? i’ve followed the guide above, but i can’t find the mms setting in the cellular data menu!!
@Vinay, i have iTunes 188.8.131.52 and tried to do a shift + restore on itunes, and it gives me an error 20 all the time.
i even tried on a different machine running iTunes 8.1 and still gives me an error 20.
am i missing a step here?
hey is it possible to upgrade to 3.0 from 2.0
i have iphone 2g firmware 2.0 and that to quickpwned
Vinay: If this guide for unofficial iPhone then who will do activation after the update to 3.0 firmware? It’s should be not activated after update or I missed something?
@ Salar After upgrading from 2.0.2 to 3.0 you needn’t to apply any patch your phone will remain unlocked after the update.
@ Ranjit If you have used QuickPwn RC3 then go for simple update to 3.0 otherwise update to 2.0.2 then Quickpwn RC3 and then Update to 3.0
@ Thomz You are missing a step to put your iPhone in DFU before downgrading. Remember when you do 2.0.2 & Quickpwn RC3 then update iTunes 8.2 before updating to OS 3.0
@ Yo Wassup Your iPhone shows a small o logo because your Carrier providing you GPRS not EDGE
Hey thanks a lot…..its working like a charm…
Thanks mate from Sydney Australia. This seems to have worked well. Can’t wait for next week or so when a jailbreak comes through as well.
Pwnage 2.2.1 to 3.0 last night on a 2G iPhone. no problems.
had no cellular data access, had to use this site to set my APN information.
landscape keyboard rules!
now i just have to figure out how to restore my Peggle save game from an earlier backup 😉
Hello Vinay, I habe iphone 2g (1.1.4) (from usa) and itunes 8.2 and i live in spain and this morning i’d try to update and now does not work (black screen) I used quickPwn (and not working) and ziphoneOSX (nor) …. Wha do you recomended me….what can I can do? Thanks
@ Inma Press Home button and power button together for forcely power off your iPhone no do a simple update to 2.0.2 ( you needn’t to put your iPhone in DFU mode while upgrading to 2.0.2 because you are updgrading. DFU mode is needed when you have to downgrade the Firmware. Remember use iTunes 8.1.1 or 8.0 for firmware 2.0.2 and for firmware 3.0 use iTunes 8.2
@ Thomz Put your iPhone in DFU mode and restore to 2.0.2 ( iTunes 8.1.1 or 8.0) then follow the above mentioned guide. Don’t worry keep your cool go through the whole guide twice or thrice it’ll surely work for you.
hi, i have a 2G iphone on rogers (canada) followed your step and when i upgraded to 3.0 it keeps saying sim is invalid. seems like it hasnt been activated? now im stuck at locked 3.0, any solution? thank you!
works like a charm to me!!! with unofficial iphone US 8gig 1gen (original with ATT card) and now used in belgium!
Many thanks vinay
I see that Cydia is on Beta 5, but is it on GM? I got it installed successfully but dont see anything about getting it on GM.
hi vinay i have the 3.0 beta 5 installed, do i have to downgrade to get 3.0 final version or can i just upgrade from beta 5 straight to the final version or do i have to downgrade in order for the final version to work
hey i accidentally pressed shift+restore to get on to 3.0 7a341 on my 2g…now i cant use the phone since it asks for activation and i use it in mumbai,india on vodafone…ive lost the unlock on the phone..any solutions ?
@ Saaket Don’t worry put your iPhone in DFU mode then restore to 2.0.2 ( iTunes should be 8.1 or 8.0 ) now follow the procedure.
@ John Vega I’ve not tested from beta or GM to final but you can try if it works then fine otherwise put your iPhone in DFU mode then restore to 2.0.2 ( iTunes should be 8.1 or 8.0 ) and use quickpwn rc3. Share your experience here for others sake.
@ Everybody Yes YouTube is not activated so wait for dev team to release jailbreak we’ll publish the jailbreak guide very short after release. Jailbreak tool may be available on 17th after the official release.
@ Vinay Many thanks, that worked after upgrading iTunes and doing an update, not a restore. Despite there being no changes to the baseband in 3.0, doesn’t a restore completely rewrite everything to factory defaults, including your baseband?
@ hewad I get the same issue with youtube. Perhaps youtube isn’t ready for 3.0 yet.
It works great but i have same issue as in 3.0 b5 cannot connect to youtube please help?
Mac OS X 10.5.7, Pwnagetool’ed 2.2.1, Older version of iTunes, 2G phone locked to AT&T, using in Canada. No issues with custom 2.2.x images with this setup. Option-“Check for Updates” and it fails during the verification of the image with “unknown error (10)”. I don’t want to do a Option-Restore as that will likely rewrite my baseband (even if it’s to the same version), and I will lose my activation. Any suggestions? If not I’ll wait for the PwnageTool update and the official release.
@ DDD Make sure when you are updating to 3.0 your iTunes should be 8.2 because OS 3.0 is only supported by iTunes 8.2 Don’t worry about baseband update there is no new baseband update in OS 3.0 for iPhone 2G
I have my iPhone 2G on 1.1.4 in the Uk and would like to upgrade to the OS 3. Please do guide me as to how I should proceed. Thanks in advance..!
@ Rishi hmmm you are on a 1.1.4 thats easy because you don’t need to downgrade. For you there are some changes follow the steps given below.
1. Download Firmware 2.0.2 and Update (Not Restore) your iPhone from 1.1.4 to 2.0.2
2. Now download Quickpwn RC3 and pwn your phone as per instructions by Quickpwn setup.
3. When you unlocked successfully your 2.0.2 then install iTunes 8.2
4. Now download OS 3.0 and do a simple update (Shift+Update on Windows Computer)
“With this trick i’ve successfully tested up to OS 3.0 Beta 5 and GM release.”
you didnt try with 3.0 final before posting?
What’s the MD5 of iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw from the Apple dev site?
The one from the link above gives: 64902e05aba4120b13da5c66cb0269af
Other ones I found give: 463e37446a342857737a1633470faf8d which matches what someone claims to be the MD5 from the Apple dev site.
Who knows what’s on these images. I might have to wait until the 17th if I can’t get any assurances that one of these is legit.
I have iPhone 2g 2.2 QuickPwned not 2.2.1
Is it possible to use simple update procedure as described or i should update to 2.2.1 before?
@ Rohan Why are you so unsure i’ve posted the screenshot of my iPhone 2G 3.0 worked on Cellone an unofficial carrier in INDIA. You may not follow the steps correctly. About youtube video it was inspired from my trick i m using this trick since beta 1. Check the comments many other people done this without any problem.
@ddd There are two OS 3.0 are out in the wild one is GM (Gold Master) and another is Final which is linked to download in the article. You can also wait for 17th for the same..
@East Yes for 2.2 Quickpwned we need to perform these steps.
@ Amitb Dear check the screenshot in the end of post. It clearly indicates an unlocked iPhone OS 3.0 build 7A341. We never published a guide before we get assured of its success.
Just finished the procedure listed above on my 2g iphone and i must say it worked great……love the landscape texting…anything else cool this new firmware can do??
hi, i did wat u said however wen i dwnloaded 8.2 final itunes, it says software 2.2.1 not 3.0 =/ … any help ??
Everything is fine if you have official iPhone 2G, if you don’t have official then you’ll loose activation and will get a brick. Anybody knows how to activate 3.0 if I’ll have a baseband from 2.0.2 but lost activation.
@ Salar This guide is for unofficial iPhone 2G,don’t worry to play there is no baseband update in 3.0 firmware for iPhone 2G. If any thing goes wrong you can put your iPhone in DFU mode and downgrade back to 2.2.1 any time.
@ Murph OS 3.0 GM was seeded to developers to test their App compaitibility for 3.0 and the final is which is scheduled to release on 17th June.
After upraded my iPhone 2g to os 3.0GM, eveything works fine except YouTube is not working. Any solution for that?thanks for posting the uprade guide here.
thanks a lot.. it works fine! plus, NO sim card activation needed!!!
So at “Put your iPhone 2.2.1 in to DFU mode by following steps (Make sure you have iTunes 8.1.1 or 8.0).”, is it a must have to run iTunes 8.1.1 or 8.0 or is it OK to run 8.2?
@ Alex You can’t use Qucikpwn with iTunes 8.2 to unlock your 2.0.2 because Apple changed the way to phone talks with iTunes in 8.2 update.
Jailbreakers Stay With iTunes 8.1.1
Gonna give this a shot when i get home for the heck of it! hope it works
hi dear i have a question….can i use any sim card coz i am using unlocked 2g….what about unlocking and activation…will i loose??? please reply me….thanks
@ Haris Yes if you follow these steps your activation will remains check my iPhone screenshots below. I m on Cellone an unsupported carrier in INDIA
