Step-By-Step Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 using Redsn0w (Windows)

Jailbreak iPhone on OS 3.0 using redsn0w for Windows

The iPhone Dev Team released updated version of PwnageTool for Mac users and Redsn0w for both Mac and Windows users to jailbreak iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0.

Here is our step-by-step guide to jailbreak iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 using Redsn0w for Windows users. We will publish one for Mac users shortly.

An important preparatory step before jailbreaking your iPhone 3G is to take a backup of your iPhone. Please refer to this post for more details.

As with any hack, please proceed with caution as jailbreaking your iPhone could void it's warranty.

Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 3G in order to use the iPhone OS 3.0 using redsn0w for Windows

Step 1: Create a folder on your desktop and name it Pwnage.

Step 2: Now download redsn0w from here or here and put it inside the Pwnage folder that you just created.

Also, download the latest 3.0 firmware from the location given below and put it in the same Pwnage folder. Please use Firefox to download the firmware as IE seems to automatically extract the file (thanks carny for the tip).

iPhone OS 3.0 – iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore

Step 3: Extract the redsn0w zip file to the Pwnage folder.

Step 5: In the iTunes, select your iPhone from the list of devices displayed on the left. Press the shift button on your computer and then click the Restore button on iTunes.

    Raptor jesus shall slay u for copying this off modmyi muhahahahahahahah

  • emtff219704

    Anymore all these sites just copy from one another anyways. Besides, when the jailbreak comes out for the 3GS I hope they copy and paste it everywhere. Been waiting for this one since I got my new 3GS.

  • Tk927

    I jailbroke mine using redsnow and I never did the shift restore on iTunes (so I skipped step 4-7) and every thing went really well. Should I have done that? Or does it matter?

  • Joe

    Will I lose anything like my apps or the tether hack if I jaibreak? Getting a 3gs tomorrow. I want to JB my 3G.

  • Derrick

    Jailbroke 3g iphone a week ago. Everything was going fine until this morning. Downloaded an app, now my phone is froze. Won't get past the apple sign when rebooting and Itunes won't restore it. Says error 1601. Please help can't do without phone.

  • JOB-Dave

    Followed the instructions and all went well. I did not install Icy which I guess is the replacement for the Inataller.app, is there a way to do it after the fact?

  • waiting for 3gs jailbreak

    blah, blah, blah!!!! same ole stuff over and over. all the instructions are in the program.

  • yankii

    its extremely easy to jailbreak…

    and it works well, because now i got the cycorder (video recorder) so my 3G is almost a 3gS lol…

  • Brett

    put it into dfu mode then restore

  • b lah

    When i did the shift and restore it said that this firmware wasnt compatible… and so i try to do without that step and the pwnage tool freezes at "waiting for reboot"… any ides???

  • Joe

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TA38633?viewlocale=en_US

    Error 1601, google is your friend.

  • TITO

    iTunes must be 8.2

    and it's all done

  • Cali Girls Do It Best

    I jailbroke my phone a week ago and my phone wouldn't complete the necessary downloads or install the winterboard so I restored it. Then I rejailbroke it and it started running like garbage. Today it wouldn't go past the boot screen and I had to drive to an apple store for them to fix it. They did a reset for me. Can I jailbreak it again or am I doomed to a stock phone til the next update?

  • stlstan

    Ran this using 64bit vista 1st round went through with issues, I'm getting a sub-process/usr/bin/dpg returned and error code 2. when loading winterboard

  • Dean

    Yankii you are smart boy!!!!!

  • Dean

    CALi are the girls also jailbreking their iphones!!!!!!

  • stlstan

    1. load without icy will fix errors on cydia.

  • Derek

    just wondering, will this working if I'm running Windows 7?

  • Cali Girls Do It Best

    Obviously Dean ;)

  • Stanley Wong

    I jailbroken my iPhone 3G today. Everything was fine except it can no longer detect my local carrier. I am in HK and using smartone-vodafone. Is there something I missed? Did anyone have the same problem?

  • Bermuda Brains

    I did mines without iTunes being 8.2. And it work fine with me.

  • Bermuda Brains

    PS is anyone having a problem with there settings screen when they install and use a winterboard theme, cause when I do I loose everything under general in settings, like ( mail, phone, safari, iPod, photos). Does anyone have a solution or am I the only one.

  • Gumby H.

    Just finished the process with 8 gig 3G running 3.0. I had a problem getting Redsn0w to find the file until I manually added the .ipsw extension. I had added some free apps which did not restore with the synch but no big deal just regot them from the app store. My phone pictures also did not restore but I had uploaded them to PC using windows digital camara wizard so maybe I can transfer the ones I select back to phone through iTunes.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156fc27ba5970c ryan0926

    add the source http://apt.ripdev.com, then install icy from that repo

    ive heard tho that with redsn0w you're not supposed to have cydia and icy… maybe thats fixed now, i dunno

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156fc27ba5970c ryan0926

    did you restart your phone after installing winterboard? I know it runs all funky if you dont

  • j katz

    I cant wait for the 3gs unlock.Once again Apple drops the ball with no reminders.I don't understand how they want to compete against blackberry when I get a 1/4 millisecond weak vibrate and no visual flashing to tell me I have an email or missed call. Man I miss inteliscreen!

  • howers 49

    I have one question
    Will I be able to Restore my phone to the original settings if everything screws up on me?
    Also is there a video recorder app for the 3g yet?

  • stlstan

    my phone locked out it blinks from the apple to the blank screen, thats it

  • Derrick

    I tried that Brett, thanks though I figured it out. Had to restore it using ITunes and start all over again. I had to manually put it back in recovery mode and then restore it back to factory settings from my last backup. Just wanted to let people know if they ever had problems like I did today (all day)what they might need to do. Here's a link with the steps on how to put it in recovery mode. http://mickerlodeon.com/2009/03/iphone-recovery-mode-how-to/

  • Stanley

    My carrier icons returned "No Services" after the jailbreak. Any ideas?

  • beast

    @ stanley

    mines did the same thing u jus gotta restore bacc to orig factory setting and put it bacc to normal settings

  • riley burris

    go to quickpwn.com and go to the forums and look at the stickied thread that says something about bricking your phone and you can fix it.

  • Stanley

    How to restore to factory setting?

  • vp203

    mine is doing exactly the same.. is there something that you have to install from cydia after you have cracked it??

  • Kashif Saeed
  • Stanley

    I have press "Reset All Settings" in the settings page but the problem still persist. Any idea?

  • dani

    You need to upgrade Itunes to 8.2 or it will fail.

  • HEAGAR

    Can someone help me with this? I have and old iphone, so can I use this new software with it? Thanks

  • Ricky

    redsn0w is horrible. It leaves you with an iphone full of bugs and terrible reliablity.

    Stay away.

  • Cali Girls Do It Best

    Mine did that too. In a panic I called AT&T and they had me go to the Apple store and have them troubleshoot it. They ended up restoring it for me. If it happens again I'll try putting it in safe mode and doing the restore myself

  • Don

    better not it screw up my cydia,I managed to repair my cydia by re-jailbreaking it again & I didn't select 'install icy' while doing it.

  • Don

    did u install 'ultrasnow' via cydia after you jailbreak?

  • Don

    Well I don't have any problem using redsnow, my iphone 3g is working fine after using it.

  • Don

    You can use redsnow to jb & unlock,today I just helped my friend who is using iphone 2g.

  • Beast

    In iTunes wen the phone is hooked up to the comp press the reset button and restore and bacc up

  • Chris

    Yes, No.

  • Chris

    Well what REALLY happened is YOU screwed up downloading whatever your little heart desired, redsn0w has jailbroken countless devices.

  • HEAGAR

    Thanks

  • anon

    I tried to use redsnow to jailbreak my 3g and everything went through fine but i lost service in my phone but cydia was installed in it ..i fixed the problem by jus restore it bacc to factory settings .can anyone tell me why that happend or if i did do something wrong

    Not only did it work brilliantly, first time – after being jailbroken, my computer recognises my iPhone better than it used to (quite a common problem it seems)

    You guys are legends,

    Thank you All…

    Please use Firefox to download the firmware as IE seems to automatically extract the file (thanks carny for the tip).
    This very important step

    thank you all of you, my iphone is unlocked

  • Count.Brockula

    Worked quick and easy. I was going to take my 3G and have it JB'ed today but found this page and did it myself. Took less than 5 minutes (not including re-boot time) and saved me a few bucks, some gas, and a lot of time! Thanks.

  • Count.Brockula

    And just a word of advice: DO NOT UPDATE TO FIRMWARE 3.0.1 !!! There are serious issues regarding the firmware that has nothing to do with jailbreaking (jailbreaking is no different than with 3.0). Apple themselves won't even address it – they're just replacing phones if you take them to the Apple Store. More likely than not, your iPhone will not connect to your wireless (or any) wireless network after the update. One major problem is that the phone will give an incorrect password error when you try to connect to your wireless network – no matter what you try. We took my wife's phone in last night after she updated. The concierge said that there was no problem and he had never heard of such an issue and then told us to line up. He said the same thing to the people in front and behind us! All the Apple "Genius" would say is that there is a "software issue" and gave her a new, not refurb, iPhone. This is not an isolated issue – there were 35-40 people waiting in line when we got there and just as many when we left and they had stacks of new iPhones at the counter. I couldn't connect to my wireless network until I downgraded to 3.0 and I changed no settings either on my phone or on my router. Just a word of warning.

  • anonymous

    Cydia is kind of useless. you need installous to get the apps. type in: http://cydia.hackulo.us
    in the source box. you will install installous…

  • Jonathan

    Yea. i used windows 7 32-bit. It works fine for the most part. the jailbrake works and so does cydia. but when i install "Installous" and then restart my iphone, it gets stuck on the loader screen…

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p0120a52ae173970b Jason Alexander

    after i jailbreak my phone with the 3.0 firmware. Can i restore my backup i made before jailbreaking? It was using os 3.01 – and had all my contacts and apps that i had bought to date. Can i restore from that backup to get all my contacts, calendars, emails, and apps back?

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01157091826d970b maverick

    Yeah you can restore from the backup rather than setting up a new iPhone.

    The directions above have the 3G restore link. You have to use the proper restore ipsw for your type of phone or it won't work.

    Here's the break down for each software (taken from iClarified.com):

    3.0.0 (2G): iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
    3.0.0 (3G): iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
    3.0.0 (3GS): iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw

SOOOO, I went and searched for a custom made JB restore file and found one here http://www.filecrop.com/iPhone-Custom-3.1.2-ipsw.html . I did a restore using this file and TAA DAA! I have a JB version 3.1.2 installed on my iphone. Just make sure you do your backups before starting (duh right?). Anyways, thanks to whoever originally JB'd this file for us.

    I'm trying to jailbreak an iphone 3G without a sim, i can't get access to an AT&T sim cause i'm halfway around the world is it possible to jailbreak without one? iTunes keeps asking me for a sim… I did the whole jailbreak thing but the phone is still a brick. Anyone know what to do?

    the easiest and fastest way to jailbreak ur iphone or ipod is tho google blackra1n and go to the website and download software than when its done go to itunes and restore iphone and keep iphone pluged up and open the blackra1n folder and push make it rain and it will do everything for u.

    i followed the steps and everything appeared to work, my iphone even said installing jailbreak software but when it rebooted there was no cydia app to be found, any suggestions?

  • Dave

    You can try to jailbreak again and restore if you have to as many times as you need.

    Step 14: You will see a message that states that your iPhone is being jailbroken. Your iPhone will then reboot.

    Any inputs??
    I used Mozilla to download this file.

  • gavin

    I tried it again and this time its giving me error code 1015. So I stopped the process and now my phone will not work till i sync to itunes. Which I finally did and replaces with the latest update prior to restorng the phone.
    I now have the 4.1 OS any input if the jailbreak works with this OS??
