    How to Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 3G iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

    These are instructions on how to jailbreak your 3G iPhone to the 2.1-2.2.1 iPhone firmware using QuickPwn for Windows.

    If you are intending to unlock your iPhone you can use this tutorial to jailbreak ONLY if you are on the 02.28 baseband or lower AND you restore to 2.2 (NOT 2.2.1). If you use this tutorial to restore and to jailbreak firmware 2.2.1 there is no unlock currently available.

    Step One
    Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop.

    Download the following files and place them in the Pwnage folder you just created:

    - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO UNLOCK:
    - 2.2.0 (3G): [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO UNLOCK:
    - 2.2.1 (3G): [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Extract the QuickPwn-225-2.zip file to the Pwnage folder.

    Step Two
    Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down shift and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won't create any wasted space on your iPhone.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop and select the firmware ipsw. Click the Open button to continue.

    Step Three
    Once iTunes has finished updating your iPhone to the desired firmware you may launch QuickPwn.exe from the Pwnage folder on your desktop.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Four
    Make sure you iPhone is connected to the computer and click the blue arrow to continue.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Five
    Click the Browse button to locate your iPhone firmware.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Six
    Select the firmware ipsw from the Pwnage folder on your desktop then click the Open button.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Seven
    QuickPwn will check to make sure the ipsw is valid. Click the blue arrow button to continue.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Eight
    You can now select whether to Add Cydia, Add Installer, or Replace Boot Logos. Select the ones you would like to perform then click the blue arrow button
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Nine
    QuickPwn will now ask you to confirm your iPhone is connected via USB before continuing. Click the blue arrow button to proceed.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Ten
    QuickPwn will now automatically put your iPhone into recovery mode. Once its in recovery mode you will be prompted to: Hold the Home button for 5 seconds, Hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds, then release the Power button and continuing holding the Home button until your iPhone is in DFU mode.

    Watch the prompts carefully and follow along.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Eleven
    Once QuickPwn detects your iPhone in DFU mode it will begin the jailbreak process.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step Twelve
    Once jailbreaking is complete QuickPwn will inform you that it was successfull.

    What will be of interest to most people is a 2.2 upgrade whilst preserving the baseband (to allow any future software unlock). In order to do that you need to use PwnageTool to create a custom .ipsw. Unfortunately though PwnageTool is only available for Mac OS X.. therefore I would hold off on a 2.2 update until a Windows solution becomes available.

    To be honest though, 2.2 is just more bollocks and eye candy, real functionality is stil lacking e.g. landscape SMS, bluetooth functionality, clip n paste, turn by turn GPS etc..

    So, if there is a flashing problem it can be restored?

    As long as you dont do anything silly (like remove usb cable whilst upgrading), you will be fine.

    Just make sure you use the correct "iPhone_blah_blah_restore" firmware file.

    Unlocked mine too using this guide.

    Tried a '3' sim in it and it worked.

    Mod Edit .....

    I have already posted a 3G Unlock guide ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ])

    This thread is to discuss jailbreak , hence the title (How to Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 3G iPhone Using QuickPWN (Windows)

    Please read threads and stickies carefully

    Cheers for this guide came in handy One thing to note is that you need .net framework or it doesn't load up.

    The IPSW file you selected (phone 1,2_2.2)does not match the firmware version of your device (iphone 1,2_2.2) please note that quickpwn does not upgrade firmware, it only jail breaks whatever firmware you currently have on your device
