    Here's a custom .ipsw for iPhone 3G's on OFFICIAL carriers (like ATT). Do not use if you're not locked to a carrier. Credit goes to SMCRACK. I have used this and it is legit. If you don't trust it, don't use it.

    I am off to catch a movie, so I can't answer any questions for a couple hours...but I wanted to share this with those PC users agonizing over waiting for QuickPWN. Again, all credit goes to smcrack. His OP:


    here is a Custom Restore for an iPhone 3G.

    Restore has:
    595MB Partition Size
    OpenSSH installed
    SBSettings Installed

    Does NOT have:
    ICY installed. If you want it, just go into Cydia and install it from there.
    There are no custom Boot images

    This firmware will not activate your phone. You have to be a legit ATT user for this firmware

    Happy PWNing!

    I'm sorry if I'm asking obvious questions, but this is my first jailbreak, and I thought I understood things, but since Pwnage Tool is only working on Intel Macs right now, I got a bit confused. I'm looking for the custom firmware that Pwnage Tool would have built. This will work for me, right?

    I have a 3G on AT&T, and I'm trying to jailbreak so I can unlock to sell.

    im no expert here,
    but if i read this correctly, you can download this file, restore your phone from this .ipsw from within itunes, then you need to restore from your last back up to get your contacts/data back.

    i could be wrong, dont shoot the messenger!

    Thanks. That sounds like a plan.

    Anyone else have a better idea?

    Ultrasn0w is the unlock. Why wait for that if all you want to do is Jailbreak?

    Seriously, people shouldn't talk about things they don't fully understand. Especially with people looking for help.

    Well, shoot! I thought I read it was out and on Cydia. :( I must be reading too many blogs/comments/forums and got confused.

    Okay, so it's not out, but I still have to JB in order to unlock, so why not do that now? I'm asking seriously. I appreciate your help.

    Rule of thumb in forums is not to download anything without actually knowing what it is. So word of warning for all, don't let excitement get the best of you.

    Can someone plz post a link to a 2G custom firmware with exactly the same specs?
    (no custom pics mainly :p)

    I don't think they're gonna release quickpwn today, so even though I'm on a very slow connection, I suppose downloading the firmware is my only option.

    Edit: I just noticed it has no activation.. so it doesn't work for me!

    Thanks for the file but unfortunately iTunes is giving me a 1604. I saw on the dev team comments that other people are having this too. I'm restoring to stock 3.0 and trying again.

    Has anybody on windows gotten this to work yet?

    Just tried again with no luck. Bah, I guess we'll just have to wait for windows tool to be released :(

    I guess the two tools make slightly different ipsws?

    EDIt: Can somebody else upload an ipsw? According to musclenerd himself, it should work.

    someone on twitter said that, but how long is the process?? I see people go in the Apple store to make phone calls and check email, but jailbreak their phone......how long is the jailbreak process??

    It was broken for me too, and I'm on a Mac. :confused: Maybe it was that particular file.

    Ok, I know why the ipsw doesn't work. All of us are trying to jailbreak from 3.0, right? Well, the firmware posted above requires an already jailbroken phone (2.2.1, basically).

    So the options are to:
    A. Downgrade to 2.2.1, jailbreak, and then install custom firmware
    B. Wait for the windows version of quickpwn
    C. Can anybody on a mac please create a firmware with the setting "Has your phone been pwned before" disabled? :D

    Thanks!

    Sorry guys. I forgot to mention that if you're getting an error, it's because you had already upgraded to 3.0, meaning you can't use this custom firmware. Your only way is by QuickPwn, unless you're on jailbroken 2.0 - 2.2.1.

    Other than that, this firmware works fine.

    I just tried and failed twice, but the third time actually worked for some reason.

    I'm now restoring to get my other stuff back, but I'm a bit confused, wont this revert it back to the older firmware? guess I'll see soon enough, but its taking a while to restore...

    Got it working.

    For anyone else struggling with 1600 error message from iTunes,
    you can get past that with winpwn 2.5 and iPhone1,2_2.0.2_5C1_Restore.ipsw.

    Run winpwn until it crashes with a white screen.
    Run iTunes - it sees this as a jailbroken iPhone in DFU mode, and will restore it.

    Thanks.
