How to Jailbreak/Unlock iPhone 2G/3G on 3.0 redsn0w Guide

Updated Guide, Click Here.

——

With the recent release of the iPhone 3GS and all the craziness that was happening, many people completely missed the releases of the new methods of jailbreaking and/or unlocking the iPhone 2G or iPhone 3G!

iphone-unlocked

Before we begin however, please take some time to review the notes below as they are very important:

  • For those wondering about the iPhone 3GS, since the device just came out, there is no news yet, but things are in the works.
  • For those wondering about the iPhone 3G unlock, it is called Ultrasn0w and is coming soon.
  • If you are currently running the yellowsn0w unlock on your iPhone 3G for cellular service, then do not attempt to use redsn0w or update to 3.0 as you will lose your iPhone 3G unlock.

Please read these words of warning from the iPhone Dev Team Blog before proceeding:

If you want to build custom firmware files with more flexibility it is suggested that you use ‘PwnageTool’ on Mac OS X.

  1. GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use redsn0w right now. Ultrasn0w (the 3G carrier unlock) is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. UltraSn0w will be released via APT (cydia and icy) soon. If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 carrier unlock works with this redsn0w release.
  2. Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w (when available) will be released via APT (this means you will be able to get it via Cydia or Icy).
  3. Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.
  4. Read items 1, 2 and 3 again and again.
  5. This app is suitable for the recent 3.0 release
  6. redsn0w will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS.

Note #1: The methods listed below can be followed on BOTH a PC or a MAC.

Note #2: Some users experience download issues when using Internet Explorer or Safari. However, Firefox seems to work fine.

Note #3: If the 3.0 software files download as a .ZIP and is unusable, change the .ZIP extension to .IPSW

How To Jailbreak and Unlock the iPhone 2G on 3.0 software

To jailbreak and unlock your iPhone 2G so that it runs the 3.0 firmware and you can put in your Rogers/Fido SIM card (or any other carrier SIM), follow the steps below:

  1. Download redsn0w 0.8 (a more powerful QuickPwn) for Mac here or Windows here and extract the install file “redsn0w” to a folder.
  2. Download the 3.0 firmware for the iPhone 2G here.
  3. Download the Bootloader File 3.9 and Bootloader File 4.6
  4. Put the downloads from Steps 1-3 into a single folder together
  5. Open iTunes and plug your iPhone 2G in via the USB. Backup your iPhone 2G if iTunes allows you to.
  6. Ensure that your iPhone 2G is turned on and then put the iPhone into Recovery Mode. (If you already have the 3.0 software, go to step 8).
  7. Once you are successfully in Recovery Mode, click “Restore” in iTunes. This will update your iPhone 2G with the 3.0 software.
  8. After the restore is complete, close iTunes but leave the iPhone 2G connected to the USB.
  9. Open the redsn0w install file and click “Browse”. A window will open. Locate the downloaded 3.0 firmware from Step 2 and click Open.
  10. Once the firmware is verified, click Next. On the next screen, put a check mark beside Cydia and Unlock and then click Next.
  11. Now click Browse beside each Bootloader file and locate the ones you downloaded from step 3. Then click Next.
  12. Turn off your iPhone 2G and follow the on-screen instructions EXACTLY.
  13. Redsn0w will guide you on how to get your iPhone 2G into DFU Mode. DFU mode is hard to do because the timing has to be PERFECT, so make sure you follow the steps. If the iPhone 2G does not get into DFU Mode, just quit redsn0w and you will have to try again starting from step 9.
  14. Your iPhone 2G will now be unlocked and jailbroken. Reboot the iPhone 2G.

    I used Pwnage to jailbreak yesterday. I, too, had problems with Cydia – it kept crashing.
    So – I preformed the jailbreak and the second time I downloaded the latest Cydia software prior to creating the .ipsw file. Try that and Cydia will not crash.

    I think I will wait for a QuickkPwn hack. This Redsn0w seems kinda flakey, especially if Cydia doesn’t work with it.

    mine is jailbroken os 2.2. If I follow the steps above to install 3.0 and jailbreak it, would I have to reinstall all the 3rd party’s app? Thx for advice.

    I’ve been trying to figure out why Redsn0w and pwnagetool 3.0 for Mac isn’t working for me. I’ve never had trouble with the programs before, and infact, I just finished downgrading to 2.2.1 because I was so frustrated about not having a phone that was unlocked. I don’t know what to do except to wait. Apparently the new pwnagetools are not compatible with the PPC mac architecture. Which doesn’t make sense, but perhaps in their haste to get us the tools, they miss-stepped. All I know is that I haven’t got 3.0 to work because the tools both keep crashing on my computer. Anyone else in the same boat? Iphonefan, could you perhaps bring this to the attention of the Dev-team?

    Thanks

    EFFING EFF EFF!!!!! I know what the problem is. i had categories and i had all my jailbroken stuff in a folder!!! Any clue how I can resolve this problem? If I restore I assume it would work but does that mean i would loose all my contacts or are those on my sim card? That’s the main thing that i wouldn’t want to have to redo. I can’t just retrieve my back-up after I restore because I it would just ‘hide’ Cydia again (along with all my other hidden apps.) CRAP! Help please!!!!

  • Yeah, I would guess your browser, or Vista recognizes the firmware just as a compressed file, and automatically unzips it. If you can re-compress the files, and change the extension to .ipsw, it should work, but best to try and get the firmware properly.

    I have a 2G phone from the US and its been jailbroke a few times and I run on Rogers. Today I’ve tried to update to 3.0 and followed the Pwn tool and now my phone only shows as emergency calls but I CAN get calls and make calls just nothing else. The screen says emergency calls only and won’t access any of the winterboard, text, anything. Oh yeah I’ve gotten some texts too but can’t reply.
    Does anyone know what I’ve done? I’ve restored my phone a couple times and when its hooked up to Itunes it says my SIM card is not supported etc.

  • Brian

    Well… My experience with redsn0w 0.7.2 is that when I putting my iPhone into DFU, if I released the home button, redsn0w would crash on my Windows Vista 32-bit machine. I had to keep holding the home button the entire process after DFU moding for it to finally jailbreak. Maybe it’s just my computer but I’d like to know if anyone else was having problems with redsn0w crashing on them… redsn0w 0.7.1 AND 0.7.2 both crashed on my computer at some point in my 10 attempts to jailbreak my phone 😉

    Me too! There needs to be a delay or initial countdown before telling me to hold the power button down for 3 seconds, and to let go of the Home button immediately after you start to see the reboot messages. Had to follow the instructions very closely or redsn0w 0.72 would crash. If I held down the Home button too long it still crashed.

  • I’ve wanted to jailbreak my phone for months but bc of my updated baseband I chose not too and figured that I’d wait for the OS upgrade and then consider it.
    I am not as technically inclined as all of you but think that I could very easily jailbreak my phone [on a pc] as long as I don’t have to worry about downgrading my baseband.
    Would it be safer/easier to wait until QuickPwn to be released?
    Do I still need to worry about my baseband compatability?

    Ok I was having the same problem as well and I am using an Intel MacPro. Whenever I tried downloading the firmware file it created a zip file and that was useless. Then I thought I would try downloading with Firefox! Voila, the problem was Safari!! Firefox allowed me to download the firmware as one file and not as a zip file, Safari was messing things up for some reason.

    What happens when your Cydia was placed in a categories folder as well? After using redsnow twice, once checking cydia and icy and the second time only checking Cydia, I still do not have a cydia icon on my phone.

    Sucess!
    After running into a few issues I got my phone up and running in 3.0. Suggestion -at least for those of you owning a first gen phone- when jailbreaking you iphone, only install Cydia. I had many issues and had to restore several times because I was installing both Cydia and Icy. It can save you some time.

    @Jwideawake
    Good job!
    It was a known error for installing Cydia and Icy at the same time, u would always get crash with loading Cydia. You didn’t have to restore several times lol, u just had re-jailbreak ur iPhone with redsnow if u did install both Cydia and Icy. But this time just click Cydia and unlock if needed (2G), then it will fix the problem. You might even have Icy still installed and working after u installed it the first time.

You didn’t have to restore several times lol, u just had re-jailbreak ur iPhone with redsnow if u did install both Cydia and Icy. But this time just click Cydia and unlock if needed (2G), then it will fix the problem. You might even have Icy still installed and working after u installed it the first time.

    Please change Step #8 to read

    Once the firmware is verified, click Next. On the next screen, put a check mark beside Cydia ONLY and then click Next.

    Installing both Cydia and Icy results in a well-know error that cannot be fixed other than restoring and reapplying the redsn0w patch. If you select both then you cannot install any packages and will receive errors in Cydia.

    Users can install Icy later from Cydia, after updating Cydia.

    Everytime I try to download the 3.0 FW .ipsw file, I get an error. After it gets to 99%, then copies to desktop, I get the message…The path '1_3.0_7A342_Restore' does not exist or is not a directory?

    I have tried downloading it several times from various sources but always the same thing happens….Any help greatly appreciated. thanks……DJ

  • This is a little random, but maybe try saving it to a USB stick? See
    what happens.

  • diggyj

    I actually found all my ispw files from previous upgrades and crashes. However now when i try to fix the Iphone with QuickPwn and also redsnow i get the error message that says…..

    ON QUICKPWN:
    1st it says the correct ipsw will have a name beginning with iPhone1,1_3.0.1, then when I select the ipsw….iPhone1,1_3.0.1_7A400_Restore.ipsw it says Firmware error string

    ON REDSNOW:
    unable to recognize specified ISPW……

    Any thoughts…Thanks…Dirk

  • Okay,
    Dont bother with quickpwn.

    Which iPhone are you using?

  • diggyj

    It is a 2G, 8GB iPhone. I just tried to downgrade to 2.2.1 by going into itunes, holding down the shift button and hitting restore and browsing to the 2.2.1 FW but in Quickpwn I am still getting the message saying that it should start with 3.0.1. Now I am confused becuse I thought I downgraded t 2.2.1 because after that in iTunes I got an error messge, i believe it was 1603, iPhone not recognized. Thanks.

  • Go to this post here:

    http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/iphone-news/how-to

    Find your device, read through the first link and download the firmware 3.0.

    let me know if you have already been here

  • diggyj

    Yes I have already tried those steps for redsnow. I have the same initial problem after unzipping the 3.0 file it says The path '1_3.0_7A341_Restore'does not exist or is not a directory. I have searched for the 3.0 ipsw file on my PC but can't find it. I have also tried saving to a memory stick, smae problem. I have also tried saving on my desktop, same problem. I am lost now. At the point where I might just say screw it and go by a new phone.

    Dirk

  • nono, that wont be necessary.

    When you download the firmware file, what is the file extension?

    .IPSW?
    .ZIP?
    Something else?

  • diggyj

    I now have the file and it is .ipsw

    However now when I hold shift and restore in iTunes, it says, the iphone “Dirks iPhone” could not be restored as the firmware is not compatible.

    Dirk

  • diggyj

    I have gotten farther now. ipsw is recognized but there is no unlock as an option only cydia and icy?

    Dirk

  • diggyj

    I see from the directions, that unlock comes later by adding repo….

    Now at the top it says, please wait while your device is being jailbroken….

    then it entered 2nd stage…..now it is frozen on waiting to reboot?

    Dirk

  • diggyj

    can only check cydia and icy, no unlock. Nowhere is it asking for bootlaoder files. keeps stoping after stage 1 and stage 2 are uploaded. freezes at waiting for reboot. I get through the process where i hold power for a few seconds, then power and home for 10 secs, then home for like 30 seconds……

    Dirk

  • nono, that wont be necessary.

  • Just keep going forward.

    Tick off whatever Icy/Cydia you want, and see what happens.

    Remember, if you are trying to jailbreak 3.0.1, you need to use the 3.0 IPSW
    file in redsn0w

  • Make sure the IPSW downloaded correctly.
    It should be larger than 200MB.

    if that fails, sometimes a computer reboot works wonders.

  • if you have the iPhone 2G, the unlock process comes during redsn0w.

    If you have an iPhone 3G/3GS, the unlock comes after

  • Make sure you have the correct Firmware file.

    iPhone 2G firmware name: iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw

  • Dirk

    Just an update, I finally got it going the next day. Someone told me that after it freezes at stage 2, I should start it over but put the AT&T SIM card in. Tried that and it worked first time.

    Thanks for your help……X1Zero
