    Hey Brush,

    Since I haven't used the PwnageTool with firmware 2.2.1, I would not be able to answer the questions. I suggest you post the questions on that post to get the relevant answers.

    However, I will answer one of your questions regarding applications installed via Cydia. Upgrading to the latest iPhone firmware using the above method will wipe out all the jailbreak apps.

    There is an jailbreak app called AptBackup which takes a backup of jailbreak apps but it does not work too well. It is advisable to reinstall all the apps via Cydia.

    Sorry couldn't be of much help, but will definitely be in a position on answer them when I try this out.

    Hey CK,

    I would suggest you use this step by step guide to unlock your 1st gen iPhone:
    http://www.simonblog.com/2008/11/27/complete-guide-jailbreak-unlock-iphone-22-using-quickpwn-for-windows/

    However, remember to use QuickPwn 2.2.5-2 and firmware 2.2.1 instead as the guide has not been updated for the latest firmware update.

    Hello! I made a different post, but when I refresh the page it doesn't show up. Hope it doesnt show up after I retype it. I have quickpwn 2.2.5-2 for windows, and have my 2G using the latest firmware (2.2.1). I ran this program using the correct bootloader and the restore file 2.2.1 which is in the itunes software update folder. It ran, it flashed, it loaded, rebooted my phone, showed the pinapple logo, and now I have an additional icon my my home screen showing someting about adding apps. I think this means it's jailbreaked. When I put my ATT Wireless SIM in it, it says it needs to sync with itunes to verify. when it does this, it says that my sim isnt supported. the phone is locked to ATT, which isnt the same as ATT wireless. this means that my phone isn't unlocked, otherwise it would have worked. What am I doing wrong?

    Aha! I see. I'm sorta newb, just got the iphone. okay so I followed the instructions, which is what i did before, only this time I restored my phone back to an older version just to see if it made a difference (2.0.2.). I restored the phone to that version through itunes, ran the quickpwn using that same restore file, saw the pinapple logo after it was all done as well as the new icons on the home screen (so the flash worked), threw my ATT wireless sim into the phone. it asked to verify with itunes. I plugged the phone and got itunes to see it, and itunes says "the sim card inserted in this phone does not appear to be supported." then as i am writing this message the phone rings and my brother is calling, and it works. ???? but when he hangs up, the screen says ""different sim detected, please connect to itunes" which i then did, and got the same non support message in itunes. ???????

    Hey Brush,

    I just updated my iPhone 3G by first creating the custom iPhone software using PwnageTool on a Mac and then used the custom firmware to restore it with iTunes on Windows (shift+restore button).

    I was able to successfully update it to firmware 2.2.1 and preserve the baseband 02.28.00 and also successfully jailbreak it.

    Here are some answers to some of your questions:

    Point 2: You don't need to download bootloader files for iPhone 3G as the bootneuter settings are disabled in case of iPhone 3G.

    Point 5: You can close iTunes while creating the custom iPhone firmware using PwnageTool on the Mac.

    Point 10: This is not applicable for iPhone 3G as the bootneuter settings are disabled for iPhone 3G.

    Point 13: You need to give the password for your Mac's login.

    Point 14: Even though my iPhone 3G was pwned earlier, I selected "No" to be on the safe side.

    Point 20: I have already answered earlier.

    Hope this helps. We will publish a step by step by guide to explain things as soon as possible for the benefit of other readers.

    hi Iphonehack,
    i have 3G iphone that have firmware2.2.1 and baseband 2.30.03. I really want to jail break and unlock, as i read the post you said if anyone want to unlock the phone can i use the pwn2.5.1 to jail break and wait for the unlock software to come out ?

    I have a 3G already jail broken with the 2.2 firmware. After I update to 2.2.1, I was wandering if there was some way to re-install my jail broken apps easier without having to write each one down before updating and/or re-installing each app one by one after I update?

    Hey John,

    Unfortunately, its not possible to unlock iPhone 3G with baseband 02.30.03 nor is it possible to downgrade the baseband to 02.28.00. It might also take the Dev Team sometime to unlock it as the baseband update breaks the "injection hole" that they had used in their application yellowsn0w to modify the firmware which had helped to successfully unlock iPhone 3G.

    However, since you have already upgraded to firmware 2.2.1 without preserving the baseband you can jailbreak your iPhone 3G with QuickPwn 2.2.5-2.

    Hey Ray,

    There is an jailbreak app called AptBackup which takes a backup of jailbreak apps so you can sync them back after a firmware update. We had reviewed it here:
    http://www.iphonehacks.com/2008/09/iphoneaptbackup.html

    But it doesn't seem to work too well. So it is advisable to reinstall the apps via Cydia after the firmware update. But you can always give it a shot to see if it works for you.

    Hello,
    I have never jailbroken or unlocked my iphone 3g. Nor have I updated it. It's running on version 2.0.2 and I want to unlock my phone. Do I have to first update to 2.2 because I read that the baseband has to be 02.28.00 to work with yellowsn0w. How do I even update to 2.2 since itunes is asking to upgrade to 2.2.1?
