How to Jailbreak your iPhone 3G (2.0.1) with WinPwn 2.0.0.4

Good morning everyone! Great news today for all you iPhone 3G owners out there who have been contemplating a jailbreak. Yours truly went ahead with it on the weekend and after my first attempt I was successful! I know I had talked about not jailbreaking my 3G in the past, but after some nagging from my friend Greg and his “themed out” 3G, I just had to do it!

Also part of my reluctance was the fact that jailbreaking is not necessary to use the iPhone 3G in Canada. When I first got my original iPhone, activating/jailbreaking/unlocking was the norm to get a phone working in Canada. Moreover, jailbreaking meant familiarizing myself with the guides out there and WinPwn. I soon realized that using WinPwn was easy as pie (as long as you know how to read and follow instructions, LOL) after updating my first gen from 1.1.4 to 2.0.1! You can say it gave me some confidence in the program!

How to Jailbreak your iPhone 3G with WinPwn 2.0.0.4 (Windows Users Only)

This process is very straightforward. If you’re going to do this and you’re a complete newbie, don’t worry. It’s not hard, you just need to read up and familiarize yourself. Before starting SYNC your iPhone 3G to backup your settings, emails, contacts, etc. Here are the essential steps…(I am not responsible if for some reason your iPhone 3G is damaged during this process–use at your own risk obviously!)

1. Create a folder called winpwn on your desktop.
2. Download WinPwn 2.0.0.4, save it into this folder.
3. Download the latest iPhone 3G 2.0.1 firmware and put it in there too.
4. Make sure you have iTunes 7.7 installed.
5. Launch WinPwn. Click “Browse IPSW” and select the 2.0.1 firmware. WinPwn will load.
6. Click “Build IPSW”…a new window will pop up. Select the Applications tab, tick off Cydia and Installer (DO NOT tick off YouTube fix).
7. Go to the Advanced tab. Make sure nothing is ticked.
8. Go to the Partition Resizer tab. Make sure you select a size 512mb or greater.
9. Click the “build ipsw” button, and choose your save location as your desktop winpwn folder.
10. WinPwn will build the custom software. Will take about 5-10 minutes.
11. After it completes, click on iPwner to “pwn” iTunes. iTunes will close. Launch it again.
12. Now this is where you SHIFT+CLICK restore your iPhone after putting it into DFU mode. Choose the custom firmware that was created in your winpwn folder. iTunes will restore your iPhone with the custom firmware.
13. Everything should finish, iPhone 3G jailbroken! Now, restore your iPhone from your previous sync to regain contacts, emails, bookmarks, etc!
14. If you’ve made it this far, CONGRATS!!

So Was Jailbreaking Worth it?

My answer is YES. After using a jailbroken iPhone again, I really do realize how great it is to be able to tweak and customize the iPhone! Since everybody and their grandma is snatching up the iPhone, being able to select different themes will make your phone stand out and feel “new” again. Cydia and Installer are the two main sources for 3rd party apps. Summerboard has been replaced by Winterboard. The possibilities are going to be endless as many companies are releasing their apps through Cydia/Installer and bypassing the App Store.

Here are a few themes that I’ve been testing out:

As you can see there are some pretty amazing themes out there! Changing themes is super easy with Winterboard (pictured). I even get to have my old favourite, Neurox Leopard! Yahoo!

Anyways, if you’re thinking about jailbreaking your iPhone 3G, the decision lies within YOU. I was hesitant but after going through the update of my first gen, it wasn’t all that hard.

When the next iPhone firmware update is released by Apple, obviously I can one-click update via iTunes to the new firmware, but my phone will no longer be jailbroken. I’d have to wait for an update to WinPwn and start it all over again. I guess that’s the downside of jailbreaking, but hey, it’s pretty fun tinkering around with the iPhone though. You learn so much about how to use your phone, which is another bonus.

I hope this information will help those sitting on the fence go through with their decisions. Let me know how the tutorial video works for you! Good luck! Big thanks to iClarified and the WinPwn team!

    Just wondering if it is easy to upgrade an iPhone with 2.0 pwnage.
    Can I keep all my stuff or will it erase it all.
    I know there’s like a “have you pwned your iphone before” or whatever.
    What happens?

  • Danny: just sync your iPhone 3G before you do anything. That will backup everything.

    As for using Pwnage, I can’t answer that because I use Windoze…

    Once you jailbreak your iphone 3g, does your data with rogers/fido still work the same as if it was factory fresh?

    I want to jailbreak because there are so many other apps i have noticed online but I don’t want to lose my wonderful data privilages that i pay for.

    I’m really tempted to jailbreak my 3G, but what about my warranty. iPhone Fan, do you think you can give us a list of all the apps that are possible with a jailbroken like Qik. I’m particularly interested in file storage, document viewing/editing. Also, how would you update it after it’s jailbroken?

    so even after jailbreaking, you can use itunes to upgrade whenever the new iphone firmwares get released? upgrading won’t accidently lock or brick the iphone?

    For anyone who is going through the final step of “Preparing iPhone software for restore…” in iTunes after Shift + restore, it has taken the iTunes around 7 to 10 mins to do its thing. It was scary and nervous for me of the long wait, but hang in there. It’s part of the last step…

    This is live editing while my iPhone is being jailbroken, going through the restoring process but it should be all good at this point.

    Good luck everybody.

    I just followed the video and its was easy to jailbreak.

    The difficult part was to get the iPhone in “DFU” mode, otherwise, you will get a “error 6” message.

    Under the correct DFU mode, your screen WILL BE BLACK when the phone connects to iTunes. If you see the USB picture, then you are not in DFU mode.

    Good luck

    Hey Iphone Fan, great tutorial. Can you go into a little bit more detail about how you were able to actually theme your phone with Winterboard? Like, how do you import themes into the application so they can be applied? Also, I’ve been experimenting with “Customize”, available via Cydia, but it doesn’t really appear to be working… only a few things seem to be customizable, while everything else remains stock (a quick Google search seems to show that most people experience this problem with Customize) – do you know why this is? What’s the difference between Winterboard and Customize? They seem to accomplish the same things, no?

    is there a website for downloading new themes or is it part of the jailbreak? And are you sure I can do the one click update when the new firmware is released?

    i’m a Fido customer, it works for me. However, here is an odd thing: after the restore from my backup , I played with the new jailbroken iPhone and re-connect back to iTunes but it still thinks I need to restore. So I’m going through a second time now. Hope it will not need to due it again after or it’ll be sucks to set up as a new iPhone and I lose all my stuff. 🙁

  • @trancen Good idea…I couldn’t wait so I jumped right into…haven’t looked back…

    @Moe Data works the same as before with Rogers…and it should for Fido too. No changes.

    @Kai Qik is awesome, BossPrefs gives you so much control over the phone. I will write another post. But you should be able to one-click update because the custom firmware acts like any other firmware. It would be different if you were using the 3G with a non-Rogers provider and updating would re-lock the iPhone. However this isn’t the case for us. 🙂

    @eva updating won’t lock or brick your phone. However, of course I can’t guarantee that…the iPhone is pretty hard to brick unless you’re changing code or something…

    @Ron Yes this will work with Fido/Rogers, it should work with any provider…

    @David Customize is more changing up little things, Winterboard is more for themes…

    @teenwolf you can preview themes in Cydia before you install them. About the one-click update, if you do it you will lose the Jailbreak but your phone should still work. Don’t quote me 100% but it should work since the custom firmware acts like any other firmware. 😉

    @Justin Is there any way to click cancel for the restore?

I hope it does the same with this one.

    haha…yeah maybe I should get another iPhone 3G to do this testing. But realistically, the new firmware update seems like a minor one that fixes “bugs”. You can be sure the WinPwn/Pwnage teams will be on this already. I probably won’t update to 2.0.2 since it’s not a significant update. However if I did want to one-click update that should work for me too.

    Quick few questions, sir.
    By jailbreaking, I won’t lose my info on the iphone, will I? And will I still be able to get updates to the current apps I have via the apps store and what not? Itunes works ok as well? Do I always have to use some special cracked Itunes in order to sync? And, when they come out with another update, do I have to jailbreak it again? And will I lose info and/or configurations by having to do that again in the future? Not sure if these questions were specifically covered by others.

And will I lose info and/or configurations by having to do that again in the future? Not sure if these questions were specifically covered by others.

    Just two questions. Can I totally “fuck up” my Iphone by doing this? Does Cydia have apps like Java and the Flash player? Me wants mobile poker.

    P.S. Your the only one on the whole fricking web who has good instructions. Must be a Canadian thing

  • @Andrew: It should be part of the default sources that come installed on Cydia.

    @Ted: Like I said above, SYNC before you start. After the jailbreak, just restore from your backup (the sync) and you’ll have everything again. You don’t need the cracked version of iTunes to sync normally next time. Yes, everytime a new update comes another jailbreak will be needed, however it looks to be getting easier. As long as you sync, your info will be backed up! 🙂

    @JD: You can’t really f**k up the iPhone by doing this. It’s hard to brick the iPhone unless you’re messing around with internal files via SSH etc. These restores etc won’t kill it, but of course there is no guarantee right? 😉 Cydia does not have flash/java…we’ll have to wait for Apple to get that going soon. Thanks for the kind comment!! 🙂

    So I jailbroke my phone with winpwn 2.0.0.4 and it all went pretty smooth eccept for the part where my phone application quit working I could make calls from my contacts and I could answer calls but thats it i couldn’t end calls of do anything that was in under the phone Icon. every time i pressed the phone Icon it just crashed and went straight to springboard. any body know why??

    P.S.
    One click update works after the phone has been jailbroken. Just a coulpe of custimizations were left over from the jailbreak. The custom carrier lable and the numeric battery display.

    P.S.S.
    Can I still go back to firmware 2.0.1 and jailbreak it again when i figure out what happened to my phone application?

    @ teenwolf yes you can all you have to do is click restore and use the normal 2.0.1 not the custom one.

  • @Andrew: GUI=graphical user interface; basically QuickPwn will do what WinPwn does, but without the restore. Does not support 2.0.2 yet. If you try this process at 2.0.2, it should work, but of course I haven’t tried it.

    @teenwolf Try restoring to 2.0.1 and trying again…

    Hi! So I’m about to follow your instructions and jailbreak my iphone 3g BUT the phone i’m about to jailbreak will have to be returned to rogers (i receive a new one in the mail to replace my defect – slight crack beside the screen). Anyways, will Rogers still accept my phone if they notice its been jailbroken? Also, if i restore the iphone and its locked back up will this set everything back to factory settings so Rogers would not notice at all?? If the latter is the case I’m jailbreaking right now!

    Thank you for your help!

  • @corlione: You did not do the process correctly most likely…try again. Make sure you’re in DFU mode.

    @Andrew: Not sure about that one, Installer is still in beta so that’s expected.

    @Ted: I haven’t tried QuickPwn yet. I will wait for a stable release. You should sync before you jailbreak like I mentioned. After that you need to restore from a back up.

    @LF: I would not suggest giving Rogers your JB’d iPhone! You could jailbreak for fun, then just restore back in iTunes to default…

    well now that I know how to do it, I cannot get the phone out of intunes/usb mode. Have tried and tried to restore but get an 13 error code and 6 if I try and restore the customer. All I need is to restore the phone properly so I can start this process again because the only part I got stuck on was the shift click, it’s actually shift and than restore but I didn’t know that. Any idea’s? I’ll go check the mac troubleshooting as there must be other ways to restore?

All I need is to restore the phone properly so I can start this process again because the only part I got stuck on was the shift click, it’s actually shift and than restore but I didn’t know that. Any idea’s? I’ll go check the mac troubleshooting as there must be other ways to restore?

    I guess it’s not meant to be. I got the ipod restored using itunes on another computer and than came back to this computer and I’m always ok until the restore process or until I have to hit the power and home button than itunes doesn’t give me the error. Frustration, will try one more time by shutting down and trying again. Wow this isn’t easy but you cannot really mess up the phone as long as you have another computer.

    here we are another night and just tried the install 4 more times and it simply won’t work. Very odd. Keep getting the error code 6 at the very end. I can do this in my sleep now but something just is not working. Very odd.
