Easy jailbreak for iPhone 3G/3Gs with 3.0.1

You will need the phone to have the 3.0.1 software to use this...to see what software you have, go to settings, then general, then about...scroll down to find it.

Download the following two items to your desktop...the firmware is large so be patient. Make sure you unzip them.



The 2nd link will take you to a site where you can DL the firmware. Make sure you click the 3.0 firmware for either 3G or 3Gs depending on what phone you have...do not select the 3.0.1 firmware in the list.

With phone plugged in and one, run redsn0w (first one above, the exe file). When the box pops up, click browse and then select the firmware that you put on your desktop. Then click next and let it do its thing. A box will pop up with two options...install Cydia and Icy...just check the Cydia box and click next. Then turn your phone completely off before clicking Next on the next screen. The screen will tell you what to do to put phone in DFU mode...basically you click Next, then either (3G phone) hold Home button for 3secs then hold the Power button (along with Home) for 10secs, then release the Power button while continuing to hold the Home button until you see Downloading Jailbreak Data on your phone then release the Home button...or if you have 3Gs, you unplug the USB from the computer then click next and then hold the Home button and plug the USB back in...continue holding Home until you see the above. Once it starts downloading, it will do its thing automatically and then reboot/restart. After this, you should have Cydia on the 2nd page of your apps. Took me about 10mins to do this and is very easy.

have a feeling it may be a while.

BUT i've heard there is a jailbreak for 3.1 if your running a 2g and 3G iphone. NOTHING for 3GS. AND no UNLOCK for the 3G.

Here is some vidoes to do it.. Read and watch. But I'm reading alot of errors. I dont know if this works... STAY AWAY FROM 3.1 is all i can say.

He just post this Sept 16. 7 days after the 3.1 hit itunes.

This video will show you how to jailbreak the new 3.1 firmware on iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch. This doesn't include the iPod Touch 2G/3G or iPhone 3GS.

- This works for Windows and Mac. Yes. And you don't need pwnagetool i just used it to explain how to get into dfu mode.
- You don't need a program for this jailbreak, just iTunes.
- Sync everything you want to keep to iTunes first!!
- You may need iTunes 9 for this. I would recommend updating just to be safe.
- If you get the 1600 errors watch this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTJzNj...
- If you are confused, WATCH IT AGAIN.

Firmwares: (make sure you download the correct one, if you have problems with them please leave a comment)
