    I would like to restore my phone to the custom 3.0 software I created with Pwnage. Do I need to put my phone in DFU mode before I hit alt+restore in iTunes to select the file?

    If you are restoring to custom Pwnage ipsw your phone should already be in DFU mode since you need a DFU iPhone to create the ipsw and then for iTunes to recognize your phone as an "empty" phone or whatever the word was that it used.

    + If any of that up there didn't make sense here's my "guide" to jailbreaking with Pwnage. Hope this helps :p

    iPhone 3G 3.0 Jailbreak!!
    Okie okie so jailbreaking 3.0 is such a ****ing hassle but once it's done at home pretty much easy peasy!

    So here's instructions that are relatively idiot proof:

    1 ------ So first go to:

    Download Pwnage + Firmware and follow instructions.

    2 ------ THEN - don't sync your applications yet, I had tons of cracked apps and waited but it doesn't sync... since obviously you need another program. So now go into Cydia:

    Click on "Manage"
    Tap ''Sources''
    Choose "Edit"
    Choose "Add"
    Type ""
    Tap "Add Source"
    Back to Cydia
    Click "Changes"
    Press on AppSync 3.0
    Install at own's risk....
    Wait some more.............
    Dont worry this actually works well.. I tested it!

    For pretty pictured guide:

    Now, for a simpleton with a life... these steps would give you a jailbroken iPhone that will be able to use cracked apps installed from your iTunes directly.

    I had already done all of that when I first jailbroke the phone. Turns out that I did not need to use DFU mode to restore to my custom IPSW file. I just hit option+restore, selected the file, and it worked.
