How to Jailbreak Your 2.0.1 iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

Posted August 18, 2008 at 8:03pm by iClarified
This tutorial has been updated for the latest version of QuickPwn and the 2.1 iPhone Firmware. You can find the 3G tutorial here and the 2G tutorial here. The Mac version is here

These are instructions on how to jailbreak your 2.0.1 iPhone using the QuickPwn command line tool released by the iPhone Dev-Team. Please remember this is beta software and may not work for some.

Currently the recommended solution for jailbreaking your iPhone using windows is still WinPwn.

Step One
Download QuickPwn from here to your desktop.

Step Two
Double click the downloaded zip file(QuickPwn.zip) to extract a folder called quickpwn.

Download the 2.0.1 firmware for your specific iPhone and place it in the quickpwn folder you just created.
iPhone 2G: iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw
iPhone 3G: iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw

Step Four
Replace the logo.png and the recovery.png files in the quickpwn directory with your own custom bootloader images. You can download the iClarified boot logo here and the recovery logo here.

If you are creating your own remember the rules are very strict. They must be RGB or Grayscale format with Alpha channel and dimension bellow 320x480.

Step Five
Connect your iPhone to the computer via USB cable, make sure iTunes detects it, and then close any iTunes processes that start. Then in the quickpwn folder double click either iPhone 2G.bat , iPod touch.bat , or iPhone 3g.bat depending on which device you are using.

Step Seven
QuickPwn will now help you put your iPhone in DFU Mode. Read through the instructions so you know whats ahead then type in y and press Enter. As an alternative you can put the iPhone into DFU mode yourself using these directions then press Enter.

Step Eight
First you will be asked to hold down the Power button for 5 seconds. Then you will have to also hold down the Home button for 10 seconds without letting go of the Power button. At the end of 10 seconds you will need to release only the Power button.

Step Eleven
After a few seconds of holding down just the Home button QuickPwn will detect the DFU mode and start performing operations.

After 8 operations are performed QuickPwn will ask you to "Please wait while your iPhone is Jailbroken". You can press any key to close the command prompt window.

Your iPhone will display a turning wheel and in a few minutes will be jailbroken! If you have a 2G iPhone and would like to unlock simply install and run BootNeuter from Cydia.

Unlock w/ bootnueter only to get " Different sim card insert please connect iTunes" Emergency call only! Can someone help? thanks

Two things... I mistakenly put my iPhone2g in DFU mode.. That is NOT what quickpwn wants here. You have to follow the power instructions exactly.. It took me 3 times to realize this.. Following the timer worked flawlessly. I never got quickpwn to use my custom logo.png. It's still the pineapple. I replaced, removed and generally got rid of the original and it still loaded the pineapple. It's hardcoded someplace.

Darkcha0s - August 19, 2008 at 10:20am
It should be closed. Use task manager. This tutorial worked fine, thanks alot!
Nico - August 19, 2008 at 5:20am
can this be done from a 1.1.4 iphone 2G?
Rugburn - August 18, 2008 at 8:58pm
When you put your USB connector into the iPhone...itunes will start up....this guide wants you to close itunes when it starts up. So that means you should have itunes closed before you run QuikPwn.
