These are instructions on how to jailbreak your 2.0.x 3G iPhone using WinPwn 2.5 for Windows. They have been updated for iPhone firmware 2.0.2.

To follow this tutorial you will need to have iTunes 7.7 installed (make sure to reboot). Also, you may need to download and install .Net Framework if you are on Windows XP. Finally, make sure you completely uninstall any previous version of WinPwn. Thanks to cmw for all his hard work on this!

Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage. In it place Winpwn 2.5(mirror) and the latest 2.0 firmware.

When i go to DFU mode, my iphone goes to white screen and the text beside the winpwn says that my iphone when to recovery mode after it went to DFU. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Knight: Seems like your custom IPSW was a problem. You can restore your phone to the original firmware (the firmware the phone came with) and then try it again. The other choice is restore the phone to 2,1 firmware through i-tunes and then jailbreak it using newer method posted at iclarified. This method is simpler and faster. I hope it helps.

Hi tara I am stucked on step 14 what should I do plz hellllp Do I need to wait more , I ve been waiting for 5 min now helllp plz anyone

KNIGHT: If the phone is already activated and unlocked by your acrrier then jailbreaking will not lock your phone. Jailbreaking will only add cydia and installer4 for downloading FREE software. Enjoy

Hi, i have my iPhone 3G already unlocked but i was trying to jailbreak it and i got stuck in the step 9! Because when is searching for the ipsw a massage popup and says that it couldn't find it because it has and invalid hash.. I don't know what it is! but i think its because i started the procces with a 2.0 firmware.. Is that the problem?? HEEEELLLLPPP MEEE PLEASEE!

too many bugs, too much bugginess in the process, this is not streamlined at all. I am surprised if this really worked for anyone, I tried it this about 2 weeks ago and ended up having to restore my phone with the original apple software. it froze somewhere around step 14 and the application crashed on me, same thing just now. There has to be a better way to jailbreak this is not working.

Hey i used latest update from winpwn, somehow it didnt work on windows vista. I was able to unlock one iphone 3G. But When i again used same method to unlock second 3G iphone, it didnt work i did same steps 3- 4 times , now the phone is jailbreak , as it does accept an indian sim, while phone was from optus australia. I dont get to connect it to any indian gsm provider, it dosent connect . Neither it shows invalid sim. And in network i dont get any info on 2G network . While the other iphone is working fine it was from virgin store , australia, i am guessing if the error is due to fact it is of a different company. I also tried 2.0.2 version still stuck what to do??

Me and my hubby both have the 3G 16GB phones. I see the instructions for jailbreaking them. I will say that I am a bit nervous but I am definitely going to try it. I see that some people had problems having service afterwards. What do I need to do to try and make sure that doesn't happen. How did you solve your service issues @ iguy and Coq?
