How to Jailbreak iPhone 3G 2.1 Firmware with QuickPwn 2.1 (Windows)

I just finished using QuickPwn 2.1 to jailbreak my iPhone 3G on 2.1 firmware and it was the EASIEST jailbreak yet! Check out the following video tutorial of the jailbreaking process. It was very straight forward and the entire process took about 8 minutes or so. In a nutshell, here’s what you need to do:

1. Download QuickPwn 2.1 for Windows.
2. Update to 2.1 firmware via iTunes.
3. Run QuickPwn 2.1 and follow the instructions. You’ll need to know how to put the iPhone 3G into DFU mode.
4. Enjoy the jailbreak! Let the customization begin again!

I must say I did miss having my iPhone jailbroken. I love being able to customize the iPhone to my liking using Winterboard. It makes my iPhone 3G stand out from the rest of the gazillion other iPhone 3G users out there! Expect some more jailbroken app reviews coming your way.

As for my first gen iPhone, it hasn’t changed since I last updated the firmware from 1.1.4 to 2.0.1 via WinPwn. I’ll update it to 2.1 firmware in the near future so stay tuned for that!

Remember, we are not liable for any damage you might incur by jailbreaking your iPhone!
