    Hi,

    Ive really tried several times reading the FAQ and some of its links but the amount of info just got me so dizzy which is why i just thought of asking for help.

    My problem: How do i upgrade my iphone(1st gen)- 8GB from firmware 1.1.2 to the latest firmware 3.0.1 (this is the latest right?). What's the easiest way?

    My details:
    a) I think my iphone is already jailbroken because i can use it here in our country (Philippines). Iphone isn't really offered here.
    b) I'm using Microsoft Windows XP and Vista. Can it be done with this or do i need a MAC?
    c) My iphone is a 1st Gen 8GB model

    Thanks so much.

    Ummm.. plug it in, and in iTunes click update/restore? You will need to rejailbreak it with redsn0w afterwards if you want it jailbroken.

    oh damn is that hard? i though i only have to upgrade it and not re-jailbreak it again. Is redsnow the best app to use to re-jailbreak it? or Winpwn is better/easier? The guide in the FAQ only is for the firmware 2.0/2.01 version. Is there a guide for the version 3.01?

    umm by the way, how do i know if my iphone(gen1) has been "jailbreak" already? I forgot that this guy that hacked my iphone like 2 years ago placed a sim on top of my sim then inserted it to the sim slot. Im not sure if he did something else. Do i need to remove the sim that he sticked to my simcard?

    Winpwn isn't compatible with 3.0. Your only choice is redsn0w.
