Step by Step Guide to JailBreak iPhone 3G using Windows

If you are a Windows user and were feeling left out as the Pwnage Tool is only available for Mac then you don’t need to anymore as folks at Whirlpool.net.au Forums have figured out a way to jailbreak iPhone 3G using Windows just like some clever folks had figured out a Step-by-Step Guide to Pwn first generation iPhone running firmware 2.0 using Windows.

You can check out the step by step guide to only jailbreak your iPhone 3G for Windows users after the jump.

Update (Jan 3rd, 2009):

We has just published step-by-step guides to jailbreak iPhone 3G using QuickPwn.

Step-by-Step Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 3G using QuickPwn (Windows)
Step-by-Step Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 3G using QuickPwn (Mac)

 

As you might know, the iPhone Dev Team have been able to jailbreak iPhone 3G and are currently working hard to unlock it. As a result, the Pwnage Tool 2.0
that they have released yesterday can jailbreak, unlock and activate
the first generation iPhone but can only jailbreak iPhone 3G (cannot
unlock it).

Please do remember, hacking your iPhone is at your own risk. Before you start hacking your iPhone, it’s a good idea to backup your iPhone.

The step by step instructions that Windows users need to follow to jailbreak iPhone 3G is mentioned below.

Step 1: You need to download two files: x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw and iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw.

Step 2: Make sure you have iTunes 7.7 installed.

For Vista: Click Start then copy this into the search box and press enter after:
For XP: Click start then run, then copy this into the run box:

%appdata%Apple ComputeriTunes

Step 3: Make a directory called: Device Support. If the directory already exists, clear it.

Step 4: Copy x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw into the Device Support folder you just created.

Step 5: You need to get your device into DFU mode. You can follow these steps to achieve this:

  • Connect your iPhone to your computer.
  • Turn iPhone off.
  • Hold power and home together for 10 seconds (exactly).
  • Release power but keep holding home until the computers beeps (observed on a PC) as a USB device is recognized.
  • At no point will the display come on. Now your restore should work.

Step 6: Once your phone is in DFU mode and detected by iTunes (should be black screen on phone NOT iTunes logo with USB cable), click on iPhone in iTunes, then hold the SHIFT key and click on restore.

Step 7: Browse to the folder where you downloaded iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw and select it. iTunes will then extract the file and you will see the iPhone Dev Team’s pineapple logo pop up after a few seconds, as seen in the screen shot below:


iPhone 3G Pwned Image


Step 8:
When restoring has completed, it will ask you to connect to iTunes, then re-do the activation process (download carrier settings).

Step 9: Restore your backup, this should automatically be made. It should pop up right after downloading carrier settings, but you may also do it by right clicking your iPhone on the left, and selecting "restore iPhone".

The procedure should also install the Open Source Package Installer and Handler for the iPhone, Cydia which should make installing the unofficial native iPhone apps on your iPhone 3G easier.

This is for folks who requested for a guide to only jailbreak iPhone 3G (without unlocking it) using Windows. If you are a Mac user, you can simply use the latest version of iPhone Dev Team’s Tool – Pwnage Tool 2.0.x.

As always do let us know how it goes in the comments section.

Thanks grega for the tip!

    The same process works just as well with the iphone 2g, but you need a different iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw (one thats for the iphone 2g)

  • RL

    Anyone know how to re-do activation process for iphone 3g after I successfully jailbroke it? I don't see my At&t sign and I can't make a call, but it looks like it jail broke. HELP!!!!!!

  • Matt

    @kenzanboo: You should just plug it into itunes, and the activation popup window will appear and then just follow the steps. It should take a few minutes.

  • killer

    hey how come the files come a zip file and not ipsw? i cant get it to work

  • Mehdi

    Man i freaked out when the screen went all white but then i saw the dev team pineapple logo and my heart started beating once again THX for evrything guyz u own since dev team woudnt let me pwn on my windows lol

  • Mehdi

    looks like its taking a too long time

  • Mehdi

    but it worked really good thx again guyz

  • Cools

    could someone mirror the second download, It's gonna take 1 hour with (I assume) the servers bad upload speed.

  • CJ

    what about 4 iPod touch users does the iPhone 2.0 firmware work and can u jailbreak the same way?

  • dyrtybyrd

    works perfect!!!

  • r2

    For some reason it kept downloading the files that are needed as zip files… Make sure you rename them to *.ipsw and put them in the recommended locations (no need to unzip them). Also if you get error 1600 you need to start over again from the beginning….altough your iphone might have gone into DFU mode you'll still have to do the button pushing again to make it load the appropriate drivers for it to work.

  • paul4086

    umm i have a question. when it says in step 2. how you click start and put the code in the run box. what is that? start what?? and what run box?? i downloaded both the files but what is step 2 talking about

    pls help

  • RL

    If you have windows xp you click start (at bottom left) and then click run. Then put in the information provided. If you have Vista you click start (again, bottom left of desktop) and than in the search bar at the bottom put he info provided. Good luck.

  • kelstr

    i seem to be stuck at the point where I have to load the IPSW file… itunes says "preparing iphone for restore" then after like 2 minutes… i get an error msg in itunes… 1601

    so i gotta restore to factory settings and do over?

    also to boot… i don't ever see the pineapple… :S any thoughts? anyone had the same problem?

  • CandyGuRL_112

    I'm having trouble renaming files that I need to download from *.zip to *.ipsw. Could anybody please help, kinda feel retarded here..lol =p

  • looneyhouston

    What apps are you able to download off of the installer for the 3g jailbreak?

  • looneyhouston

    pretty much what I'm asking is, is it worth jailbreaking right now? The reason I really want to jailbreak in the first place is for customize and mxtube. Not only that but I am waiting for a replacement 3g from apple. Please message me back with suggestions. Thanks!!!

  • Isaac

    Hi, I'm just trying to jailbreak my 3G, and the files you put up there no longer work, and I can't seem to find them anywhere else.. can somebody please redistribute them or mirror them somewhere else? The link is down and I can't download the files.

  • Jeremy

    I keep getting a 1403 error when i click the custom firmware to try to extract it. Any idea what that error is?

  • cocky@me.com

    Apparently the downloads are down or something. I've read that the 1403 is because the ipsw is only part way downloaded. Can anyone email me these files?

    Thanks.

  • Ben

    Anybody got a mirror or bittorrent for these files as i still need them and theyre not available??

  • Me

    I've been stuck holding the home button for an hour or so, I've repeated the process several times but my iphone is not showing up on my itunes..

    please advise, much appreciated

  • Mclovin

    it would appear that the downloads are down here is a link to a torrent version of the files

  • Tristan
  • Zohaib Danish

    Step 1 : Grab a pre-created IPSW Made with PWNAGE 2.0 Mac. If you don't have one made you can grab one from:

    [code]
    http://rapidshare.com/files/131196006/iPhone1_1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.part1.rar

    http://rapidshare.com/files/131199914/iPhone1_1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.part2.rar

    http://rapidshare.com/files/131204173/iPhone1_1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.part3.rar
    [/code]
    (You will need to download all the three links, in order to get the firmware.)

    Step 2: In iTunes Shift+Click the Restore button and find your custom IPSW firmware file.

    Step 3: This should jailbreak, unlock and activate your first generation iPhone and should have iPhone firmware 2.0 running on it so that you can use both the official and unofficial native iPhone applications.

    —————————————————————————

    *Please do remember, hacking your iPhone is at your own risk. Please don't forget its always a good idea to backup your iPhone. To back-up your iphone, just sync your iphone with the itunes one last time, then hit the restore button, by holding shift at the same time.

    Let me know if it worked for you in the comments, and if it has, don't forget to drop in a thank you note.

  • Rorist

    Perfectly works, even when the iTunes logo shows up on the screen.

    Is it me, or it's much faster to apply the custom FW than the official one ?

  • cools

    Okay… it didn't download carrier settings for some reason so I'm restoring it to default.

  • paul4086

    can someone pls post a video??? i cant get past step # 7 i never see the pinapple and then it just says error 1601. i tried renaming the files to .ipsw at the end and that didnt work either.. pls help

  • eXcess

    I an 1601 error while restoring the iPhone software. I reinstalled iTunes and it finally worked!! Thank you!!

  • lightning

    i got it to work perfectly, thanks for posting the steps

  • Pete

    I keep getting an error (-1) during the restore, pineapple comes up and then error happens.
    Anyone have any ideas?

  • ldobbie

    I can get as far as browsing for the custom install, but then when i try and load it it just gets as far as "preparing for restore" then says, "unknown error occured (1) iPhone could not be restored"

    factory restore package unloaded just fine though.

    any ideas?

  • Chris

    Anyone get this to work? I'm about to try it.

  • chris

    Worked perfectly. No problems on my iPhone 3G

  • rducati

    I had the 1601 and 1602 error codes too. (even tried installing itunes on different pc's) but after a few hours I finally found the problem. I think there are many DIFFERENT (iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw) firmware files. You just have to figure out which one works. I have both (x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw) and (iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw)files that worked for me. I wonder if it's ok to upload them on my server so everyone can just download it…

  • ekmunda

    @ Chris…… can you please upload the file elsewhere they are not on users.on.net/thevillage/pwnage/win/ any more

  • Raul

    Hi, It didn't work for me too, got this weird error also…

    I've have downloaded the iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw throught the bittorrent. After got the error I decided to check the MD5 to see if the file was not corrupted. I got this MD5 with my file: db4f1023f9ddcdcad81f839fc204246e

    In this japanese forum they got different MD5 numbers also: http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fpc11.2ch.net%2Ftest%2Fread.cgi%2FiPhone%2F1216516831%2F&hl=en&ie=UTF8&sl=ja&tl=en

  • iPhonastic

    i tried to jailbreak a 3G iPhone
    So i downloaded the needed stuff and begun

    BUT when i was restoring it with iTunes (7.7) a nnew window oppenned and told me:

    iPhone couldnt be restored. Unknown Error (1)

    can someone help me???

  • MarB

    I'm new to the iphone hacking. I hacked other stuff before (xbox,xbox360,apple Tv) so i wanna clear some questions before starting.

    I have a regular Iphone 3g with a contract. I want to jailbreak it, but no change of my provider neither of the SIM-Card.

    1.)When is the "unlooking" needed? When i want to change the Provider or the SIM? In my case that wouldn't be used anyway?

    2.) I don't need special software/hack to reactivate my iphone after the jailbreak? Just need the Iphone 3g with a SIM-Card and the Itunes?

    3.)Can i destroy my iphone? Or will i always be able to restore it?

    Big Thx

  • Mudshark

    Wait for official Iphone Dev Team Pwned Package for Windows!!!!

  • http://profile.typekey.com/castroadan/ Adan

    I will be waiting for the official iPhone Dev Team Pwned Package for Windows since there are more people having problems then people who succesfully installed it.

  • Battleaxe

    I Jailbroke my 3G iphone yesterday, although after the jailbreak it hardly was a phone. My settings no longer had the option to select my carrier, so I could no longer make/receive calls or use the 3G network. Anyway since then I had to restore back to factory settings, but would still love to successfully get all features up and running on my phone. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • jkelly

    i have xp media – it did not work for me – when i restored the recovery file it stuck on a blank white screen

  • quequotion

    this actually seems to work! and far better than the recently released Winpwn 2.0.0.1 RC1 (non-functional beta?)

    Not for the faint of heart however, as you will have to wait through some long, nerve racking blank screens and looping progress bars. my fingernails are all shorter after this.

  • michele

    why dont the links in step 1 work?

  • quequotion

    >>michele
    good question. look through the comments for links to a torrent containing the files which is also easy to find at http://www.isohunt.com. if you don't know about torrents, it's a good time to learn!

    UPDATE
    i did this. it works. it was nerve racking.
    a day later i noticed a little problem, all the programs i downloaded from AppStore BEFORE the jailbreak crash immediately. They must be deleted and reinstalled.
    Also, the time is reset to Cupertino. Don't get your schedule mixed up!

  • mobster01

  • make love to my iphone

  • NATOMan

    I'm getting the "Error (-1) During Restore" message also. Any ideas how to fix that?

  • Greg

    Could someone please provide valid links for the x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw and iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw files? Please help me!!!

  • Joe

    Very well done. I jailbroke my iphone 3g in one attempt on windows xp. Keep it up!!!!!!!

  • Guido

    Be warrned, I have an older IPhone and have tried this half a dozen times. It does NOT work and I have followed the directions to a Tee.
    In fact, For roughly 5 min my IPhone will not cut on and oddly it just shoots back up and when I try to load the custom software, I get an error code (6)
    I have followed 4 different instructions NONE WORK! BE WARNED!

    Even backing up my phone before the install, I lose ALL back up data, therefore restoring the phone to factory…this is murder…

    more questions, email me at rasotwoonethree@gmail.com

  • Andy

    Anyone have problems after the jailbreak with Itunes wanting to Restore everytime you open your iphone in it?

    HELP!!! – no matter how many times i try to restore the iphone i keep getting the 1600 error

  • Orh Hai

    I jailbreak my iphone a week ago. It's still good, no problem encountered so far.

    The steps are also easy to follow.

    By the way, is there anyway to make use of the bluetooth feature in iphone for purposes other than connecting to a headset?

    I need some help! I couldnt replace the 'custom restore' files on my 3g but did the jailbreak anyway. Everything went great as far as the jailbreak went but when QuickPwn gave me the green checkmark the pineapple logo came up and stays like that forever! I tried restarting it a million times (held home and power) and it turns off. when i hit power to turn it back on the pineapple stays on the screen. Nothing I try works. anthonynf83@gmail.com

    I would say that Jailbreaking the iphone is a waste…I used QuickPwn and the Jailbreak went pretty well but the kind of apps for a Jainbroken iphone are pathetic and very unstable…most look amateurish and unreliable ..The so called best Jailbroken apps are totally useless..
    for e.g. Winterboard is cool but seriously, you can't even enjoy your background because of the icons and the app really slows down the iphone, not to mention that it drains your already precious battery life.

    The wallpaper apps suck, I downloaded a camcorder app which only recorded 30sec of video unless you get a $20 subscription and worst, when I tried to uninstall it, the phone just froze and I couldn't even restore and erase the data since it gave an error. I was finally able to restore the original settings using Itunes after 3 hours ..and then , another 2 hours before I could get back to factory settings..

    Jailbreaking sounds fun and seems cool for a day or two but soon you realize that most of the apps are really stupid and have no Quality control or reliability..

    Avoid!!!
