These are instructions on how to jailbreak your 2.0.x iPhone using the QuickPwn GUI application for Windows. Before following this tutorial connect your iPhone to the computer and make sure iTunes has detected it. Also remember this is still beta software!

Create a folder called quickpwn on your desktop. Download QuickPwnGUI from here and place it into the newly created folder.

2.0.2 (2G): iPhone1,1_2.0.2_5C1_Restore.ipsw

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.

NOTES***: Performing this jailbreak upgraded and jailbroke my firmware without losing any of my settings, contacts, applications etc.

THANKS***: Big thanks go to the Dev-Team and poorlad for creating this application.

worked like a charm. The command line application kept crashing on me, but I just restarted it again while still in DFU mode, and then it did the jailbreak. Logos were retained as I had chosen - it's great!

I can't get the GUI to work. On two computers it crashes on startup (AMD Athlon 64 X2 and dual-core Opteron both running XP) and on a third (P4), it freezes at the loading IPSW screen. Does anyone have any ideas? I have a 2G running 2.0.2

Question: If I own a jailbroken 2.0.1 3G iphone, using this tool WILL upgrade to 2.0.2 and at the same time jailbroken it without losing my apps, settings, etc. ? Thanks in advance for your answers.

For the below comments, if your phone is at itunes indicator, restore it to 2.0.2 using itunes and try this process it works. henry, The youtube and yahoo mail is an ongoing issue. We might have to wait for some more time to find a fix. Though i have seen someome posting the solution at http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/general/309841-2-0-2-fix-youtube-mail-yahoo-sync-problem.html but i haven't tired it. Let me know if this works for you.

Can someone send me a solution for my problem. I followed the steps in the tutorial as I already jailbreaked the iPhone to 1.4 a while back. But now my power button is broken and so I cannot do the requested "hold down power button for x seconds" steps in this tutorial in the end. I got a big problem now as I cannot use the iPhone anymore. I already did a new recovery in iTunes but my sim is of course not granted acces to the iPhone :(

I am just about ready to try this but can anyone reading here tell me if the phone is again locked after updating to 2.0.2 in itunes and I then use Quickpwn do I simply install and run BootNeuter right from cydia or are there more than simply "installing" it? Thanks guys for any help at all.Again I apologize for filling up your great site with newbie questions but theres really nobody I can ask but you/
