For those users that are planning to Jailbreak on OS 3.1.3, then I recommend adding this Cydia Source into Cydia after you jailbreak so you don't have to manually input all the Cydia Sources manually. This will automatically add all the best Cydia Sources and give you access to all the best Cydia Tweaks, Themes and Apps for FREE with just a push of a button. Follow the steps below. 1. Open Cydia 2. Tap Sources 3. Tap Edit 4. Tap Add 5. Type this url in the box (cydiasource,n e t) without the spaces and switch coma for a dot in the url. 6. Tap "Add Source" 7. Install the package labelled "All Sources". This will give you all the best Cydia Sources to have access to all the best Tweaks, Apps and Themes for FREE.

Hey Alex, I ran into the same issue on step 4. So what I did is download the iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw file and used that instead and it worked. You can get it from the link below. After I used that file I continued following the steps and it worked fine. Hope it works for you too. https://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750

I solved this problem. The link given in the download list at the top is: - 3.1.3 (2G): iPhone1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw When you download this, it is "iPhone1,1_3.1.3_7E18" But, when you come to step 4, the current IPSW is not that version. Instead, it is: iphone1, 1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw Google that, or download from here: http://mytopfiles.com/other/file/iPhone1,1_3-1-2_7D11_Restore/343202.htm Then in step 4, choose this file, not the first one you downloaded and used to back up your phone. The rest of the steps will work just fine.

Got it... Thanks!!! I did it on 2 different iPhone2G devices, and both are working perfectly. Just make sure you use the file "iphone1, 1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw" as user "m" earlier pointed out. Good luck!

It just doesn´t work! Redsn0w says "unable to recognize specified IPSW", I followed all instructions, had 3.1.2 and was trying to put 3.1.3 - the tutorial seems wrong, for my disapointment!..... didn´t do anything wrong.. any1?

Run redsn0w 0.9.4 and click on browse. Point it to the iPhone OS 3.1.2 firmware you just copied to your desktop. Make sure your iPhone or iPod Touch is already updated to OS 3.1.3

Total confutation....what is the tutorial is going for... U put there to download 3.1.3 7E18 but U select 3.1.2 7D11 (also in windows tutorial) but U download is not the firmware. The other thing is not going for DFU mode. Is it down grade to 3.1.2 or just unlock. Pleas clear this.

I apologize in advance if this is a repost, but I have not been able to find a solution to my "unique" problem. I purchased a USED iPhone 2G from a coworker and I was successfully able to jailbreak (blackrain) and unlock (bootneuter) the phone to use an AT&T gophone SIM card. The OS seems way slower (to be expected, I guess) than my 2nd Gen 32GB iPod Touch. I should say that I am a Sprint customer, using a Treo Pro and I only wanted to get the iPhone because of the camera, bluetooth, and built-in earphone and transmitter. I was using Vonage Mobile (free unlimited domestic calls in the US--I have actually tethered it to the Treo Pro and gotten decent call quality at times!) for the iTouch and discovered that in order to activate the iPhone version, there was a test call that needed to go through, hence the goPhone SIM and the unlocking process. Back to my problem. I have been unable to sync the device to iTunes and download my songs to the iPhone. It wants me to restore the phone and says that an iPhone (with my coworker's phone number) has already been synced to this computer. The reason I say my issue MAY be unique, is because most of the posters with unlocked iPhones seem to have "legit" AT&T iPhone accounts which is what I suspect may be my issue. My last resort, of course, is to restore the phone back to factory state, but I really don't want to lose my programs and such. I do have Pandora and Slacker, so I can listen to music most of the time, but I don't want to be restricted to wi-fi, since Edge is not really a practical option. ($20 for 100mb, and it is a pain to configure without a T-Mobile SIM card). So, again, what I really want is to sync my jailbroken, unlocked iPhone 2G to iTunes. Any suggestions?
