  1. Sorry but I’m confused.

    I’m an iPhone 2G user on Windows, how do I use the Custom Firmware (ipsw) 3.0 to jailbreak my iPhone? You said “You Must pwn your iPhone 2G 3.0 with PwnageTool 3.0”, which is not available on Windows.

  2. error when trying to install custom formware os 3 on an iphone 3g .. itunes launch an error number 1604

  3. -You Must pwn your iPhone 2G 3.0 with PwnageTool 3.0?

    How to pwn my iphone with PwnageTool 3.0 if i am windows user?

  4. i get error 1600. tried everything…used different PCs, operating systems. reinstalled itunes…waste my god damn 3 hours trying to get this crap installed. did NOT work. dont download this. just wait for quickpawn 3.0

  5. From researching other guides concerning past versions of PwnageTool, is it true that you just have to put your iPhone in DFU mode, have iTunes detect it, hold shift + click restore, choose the downloaded custom firmware.. and then finally let it do its thing? That’s my understanding, but as of right now.. I’m not willing to take the risk due to the fact that I’m not sure and don’t know how legit these .ipsw files are!

  6. If u have a iPhone 2g which is already unlocked with previous firmware then i think u just have to download the custom firmware and install on ur iPhone .It worked for me.

  7. Hi, why do you still need to mention this for iPhone 2g users? -> “You Must pwn your iPhone 2G 3.0 with PwnageTool 3.0?

    You don’t need PwnageTool for the 2g right? You only need to download the custom firmware, put your iPhone in DFU mode and hold shift-restore choosing the downloaded 2g custom firmware. Can you confirm if this is correct? The additional note makes is holding me up from updating. Thanks.

  8. OK TO FIX HERRE WE DOWNLLOAD QUICKPWNRC3 and also firmware 2.0.2 then use quickpwn all the way though until u get a white screen unplug from there quit and go to itunes and restore with CUSTOM firmware.

    worked for me :]

  9. use custom firmware only if u have previusly pwned ur phone.
    error 1600 comes only whn u havent pwned ur phone

  10. Pardon me if this sounds stupid but if I apply this custom firmware to my ipod touch 1G on mac, will it still work when I connect the iTouch to a Windows PC?

  11. My iphone is pwned before but i also got the 1600, then i got it out of dfu mode by restarting it (holding home and power button for 10 sec) and then i just restored from the custom 3.0 firmware.
    In short: I just restored from the custom firmware, not in dfu mode.
    I have an iphone 2g

  18. Hi, I have a custom 3.0 ipsw on my desktop, after putting my iPhone in DFU mode I get the iTunes screen where I can restore, but even with hitting option-shift it won’t let me cnavigate to the ipsw file on my desktop. it just starts to restore with a progressbar but I guess not the richt restorefile because afterwards iTunes states that the simcard is not compatible.
