  1. I updated by mistake my iPhone 2G with 3.0 7A341 firmware. It was jailbraked already with 2.2.1. Now my phone is locked; i can receive calls, but it’s need his autenthication stuff. Can’t downgrade to 2.2.1. iTunes 8.2 give error 20 and old versions of iTunes can’t recognize the phone in Recovery Mode (the USB driver is not installing). I reinstalled my Windows, i got the same result. So, now i just sit and “relax” and hope that you guys come with the solution. :)

    Goodluck and hope that QuickPWN will be realesed soon!

  2. Sandip just copied and pasted the method to jailbreak 2.2.1
    What a waste of blog space.

  3. It doesnt seem to work. Ive been trying for ages and i keep getting the error:

    “The IPSW file you selected does not match any firmware version QuickPwn supports. Either the IPSW file is corrupted, or the firmware version is unsupported”

    I am sure the IPSW file works as i have 2 different copies and have successfully restored my phone previously.

    Please can someone help?


  4. Can you email me to let me no when the quickpwn is ready for the 3.0 firmware so i can jailbreak my iphone 3g thx George

  5. hello there,
    i own an iphone 2G and i updated to 3.0 from the iTunes update..
    right now i’m unable to have access to my iphone at all, since i have an invalid SIM..
    any hints on how to bypass that and get to install the custom 3.0 firmware?

    thanks in advance

  6. Hi guys.Some1 can tell me plz when dev team will release the quickpwn 3.0 to unlock our iphone 2g running on firmware 3.0(windows user)??? rep

  7. make sure you use the custom ipsw with these tut if you use the official ipsw you will not be able to use ultrasnOw.

  8. ^^^^ I have the same problem! Seems i upgraded to 3.0 on iphone 2g but the phone is stuck on the emergency screen and dont know how to activate? I have tmobile! The bars are full and tmobile carrier logo up?

  9. I just came across a page that says you can jailbreak & unlock your iphone 2g running 3.0 firmware using RedSnOw on windows.It also says you wil need RedSnOw 0.7.1 continuing it says also you need the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader files once you have downloaded everything, extract RedSnOw-win0.7.1 to a location on your computer you then should see RedSnOw.exe run it. Is there truth to this method for jailbreaking and unlocking the iphone 3g with the 3.0 firmware already insatalled on the iphone can you let me no because i was under the assumption that it could only be done using quickpwn hope to hear a response soon thx dev team. George

  10. Hi, I have an unlocked and jailbreaked iPhone 3G with firmware 2.28.00. What do I need to do to upgrade it to 3.0? Can I just update the firmware or do I have to reset the iPhone and jailbreak again?
