Step-by-Step Guide to Pwn first generation iPhone running firmware 2.0 using Windows

The iPhone Dev Team released their Pwnage Tool 2.0 to jailbreak and unlock the first generation (original) iPhone running iPhone firmware 2.0 yesterday, but only Mac users could use the tool as they are yet to release the WinPWN tool for Windows users. URherenow and Srini, one of the readers...

    Thanks for an easy step by step guide! Btw i have a question, can this guide be used on iPhone 3G also or only older devices? as its mentioned in the heading:

    "Step-by-Step Guide to Pwn original iPhone running firmware 2.0 using Windows"? as orignal iPhone running firmware 2.0 is iPhone 3G?

    Hey there,

    Just wondering, how can one backup their full iphone before hacking it to firmware 2.0. I want to do a full backup including address book contacts, photos, and notes and etc.

    If you have the answer please post it as i want to be on the safe side before doing this :)

    to back everything up, just sync with itunes. make sure you check off the sync options (outlook or windows contacts)

    Hey Folks,

    This method works with the first generation (original) iPhone and not iPhone 3G. I have also updated the post to say first generation iPhone to avoid any further confusion.

    Hi :) Thought you might be interested in this. I posted this on the iphong dev blog site but might be helpful for you here as well.

    iPhone 2.0 Upgrade Steps for 2G iPhones ACCIDENTALLY Upgraded to 2.0 already.

    Follow and check all steps and all will work.

    === Pre-upgrade Checks ===
    1. Restore your iPhone with the Original & Official Apple iphone 2.0 software.
    2. Phone will be "emergency" only status.

    === Device Support Folder ===
    1. Open Finder
    2. Goto "Mac HD"
    3. Goto "Library" and then to "Itunes"
    4. If "Device Support" EXISTS - open folder and delete everything in there.
    5. If "Device Support" folder doesn't exist - create a new folder called "Device Support"

    === Download Bootloaders ===
    1. You need both 3.9 and 4.6 (available via 100s of links on this page - particularly at the top)

    === Upgrade Steps ===
    1. Open up the pwned 2.0
    2. Goto EXPERT MODE - if you use simple mode you will get errors 6, 20, 1600, 1601 etc and it will NOT work
    3. Select the 2.0 firmware and also select relevant *.bins
    4. When get to main menu screen, go into Bootnetuer and select "Update Bootloader" and select "4.6"
    5. Go back to main menu and enter General Settings --> select Enable Baseband Update
    6. Then build the firmware and save it to your desktop
    7. Once the firmware is built, pwned will ask you to plug in your iphone via USB.
    8. It will then step you through the process of enter DFU mode
    9. Once this is complete it will ask you to boot up itunes (when you plugged you phone in it may have already loaded)
    10. Hold down ALT (on MAC) and select the firmware on your desktop
    11. iPhone will update - LEAVE IT for the entire process.
    12. It should install and all will work :)

    === If DFU Fails ===
    1. Plug iPhone into USB & then TURN OFF (connected obviously :P)
    2. Hold the power and home buttons at the same time for 10 secs
    3. Release power button and continue holding home button
    4. iTunes will recognize the phone in "Restore Mode"
    5. Hit "Option/ALT" key and click restore.
    6. Select the firmware on your desktop
    7. Await 2.0 love (feel free to drink a beer at this point)

    Hope this is all clear enough for everyone :)

    Hey RL,

    The Pwnage Tool 2.0 cannot unlock iPhone 3G, the iPhone Dev Team are currently working on it.

    If you are looking to unlock iPhone 3G, you need to wait for the iPhone Dev Team to release their updated tool which works with iPhone 3G.

    Uploading the 2.0 Custom firmware on rapidshare as we speak.

    But i was wondering if any windows user has done it and if they would like to share that if it worked for them or not.
