    I have an iPhone 2G in DFU mode. I don't remember what software or firmware version it had. I want to pwn it and restore it.

    Which ipsw firmware of the following should I take, my pwnage tool version is 3.1.4 ?? I have already tried versions 2.1, 2.2, 3.0, and I was told each time by the pwnage tool that I was using the wrong firmware bundle.

    Thank you very much, very kind regards,

    Why don't you just restore to 3.0 official and jailbreak with redsn0w?

    I can't restore it at all. You mean, first jailbreak w/ redsnow and then restore with firmware 3.0 ??

    Thank you, kind regards,

    If your 2G iphone is in DFU mode, Itunes will give you a notification that it is in recovery when you open it, just hit restore and it will upgrade/restore your iphone to 3.1.3. This is the latest firmware for 2G.

    No Crystal RX, it doesn't! I am in DFU mode now!

    I am also trying to pwn the iPhone 2G again, and it tells me I get error -1. In November 29, 2011, when I pwned, (please see the messages above), it went well. I don't know what is wrong now. I have only updated iTunes. I had also not used the phone for a while. But, other than that, no major change!

    Thank you in advance, kind regards,

    This is the link that has saved me again!

    It took some time to make it! A few times
    marked "error -1". The trick was at the
    time of pressing the "power" and "home".
    It may even help to hold them less than 10
    seconds as it says. I think that even 8-9
    seconds is ok! It took like six to seven
    try outs and in between the search of quite
    a bit of information that I had already
    thrown away!

    Thank you again, kind regards,

    I'm sorry for the OT, but I must commend you for using a relevant thread instead of starting a new one each time. I expect an answer in about two years ;)
