Jailbreak your iPhone
hello. what version of itunes is required to jail break iphone 3G with 3.0.1 os …
I scratch loaded my Iphone 2G. After that I upgraded it to 3.0.1. Now when I use the RedSn0W_Win_0.8 with Bootloaders 3.9 and 4.6, it displays “Downloading Jailbreak Data…” for almost 15 minutes and then still does not unlock the phone. I can only do S.O.S. calls. Can some one help me about it?
Also, how can I get my basic softwares e.g, browser,maps,weather, calc etc back?
I had the same problem with the reboot. Then I found a very helpful tip in Youtube where a guy told me to unplug the iPhone (mine is 2G) and plug it in back in 3 secs in DFU mode. It worked great and I had it jailbroken and unlocked. I can make all the calls I want but people can’t reach me quite often. It says that my phone is switched off even though it isn’t. And I have a REAL battery problem – it’s gone in a couple of hours. Any help with that? 10x

This how to post has explained to me the difference that i was looking for that other sites completely miss. This on actually gives you the option to download the right downloads for the right model iphone you have. Its awesome if you cant do a jailbreak/unlock on an iPhone with the instructions from here then you might as well leave it to someone else that knows what they are doing, the directions explained here couldnt be any easier. thx alot for your help.
Works perfect thanx dev team… Bit off topic… but Im having trouble with unresponsive touch screen and i have to respring for it to work… and no I don’t think its a hardware problem because its the whole screen and restoring the phone takes the problem away for a while, until it just creeps up again, almost as if the phone memory gets sluggish….. any help would be much appreciated thanx
ive been trying to activate/jailbreak/unlock my iphone 2gen for a while now. i was on O2 payasyougo but now im on vodafone. when i download the 3.0 software, redsnow will NOT recognise it as iphone software.
thanks for any help.
hi! frds how are you i will be doing iphone unlocking this is illegal legal i want this anwser plz reply me……..firstname.lastname@example.org
DShan: I had the same problem. It would say it was installing on the program but it would just sit there and sit there and sit there…
Try uninstalling iTunes 8.2 and downgrading to an older version, maybe 7 or so. You can find guides on how to do so elsewhere. Make sure to back-up your files before you downgrade as your iTunes libraries won’t be compatible. Once you get it back to version 7, run the program to unlock/jailbreak your iPhone and it should move past that last screen when it says jailbreaking or whatever. Your iPhone will come on and say it’s Jailbreaking.
Hope this helps.
Are you using RS 8? Try an earlier version. 8 does not work for me, but previous version does.
Hello, I have spent most nights for a week trying to unlock my 2G iPhone and was getting nowhere. Came across your redsn0w instructions and 30 mins later it’s done, with vista by the way. What can I say …. I’m very grateful. Chris
by reboot I’m assuming you mean the point redsnow(whatever it’s called they all follow the same principle, you upload the OS after wiping, longest process) reboots iphone and you see a harddrive image(the tool should allow you to select cydia, installer, icy whatever) keep selecting lesser items e.g, select unlock but not cydia, select cydia but not icy… That should work.
I’m having trouble; I follow these instructions (and the ones on the Dev Team Blog) and I get to the reboot and the phone doesn’t reboot.
I’ve tried disconnecting it per some commenter’s advice, didn’t work. No matter how many times I try I can’t get the redsn0w to work in full.
