These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 3G on the 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 iPhone firmware using RedSn0w for Windows. If you are already on firmware 3.1.2, do NOT update to firmware 3.1.3. The Mac version of this tutorial is here. If you have an iPhone 3G click here, if you have and iPhone 3GS click here

This tutorial can be used to jailbreak before applying the BlackSn0w unlock to your device.






Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the latest 3.1.2 firmware from below and place it in the same folder.

3.1.2 (3G): iPhone1,2_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw

Extract the RedSn0w application from the RedSn0w zip file to the Pwnage folder.

Step Two

***If you are running iPhone OS 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 you may skip this step***

Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.
How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.1.2, 3.1.3 Using RedSn0w (Windows)

Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down shift and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won't create any wasted space on your iPhone.

Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop and select the firmware ipsw. Click the Open button to continue.

Step Three
Once iTunes has finished updating your iPhone to the desired firmware you may launch redsn0w.exe from the Pwnage folder on your desktop.

Step Four
Once RedSn0w opens click the Browse button

Step Five

**Note**
Even if you are on firmware 3.1.3, still select firmware 3.1.2. Redsn0w works the same way on firmware 3.1.2 or firmware 3.1.3. If you select firmware 3.1.3, you will get an error, as Redsn0w does not recognize the 3.1.3 file yet.


Select the firmware ipsw we placed in the Pwnage folder on our desktop then click Open

From this window you can select the jailbreak options you would like. If you have already pwned your device check the Already pwned option.

Verbose boot displays detailed information on boot of your device and is generally only needed by developers and advanced users.

Make sure Cydia is selected. For this tutorial we will also select Custom boot logo and Custom recovery logo.

When you click to select each custom logo option a dialog window will appear asking you to select the image. Locate the image you would like to use then press the Open button.

After the restore, wait until itunes opens the activation window (this happens on itunes store).. Once you get that page, then you launch the redsn0w software.. not before, because that closes itunes automatically and then you will loose that "activation" part.... be patient and let me know if you have any problems...

If you are having trouble Jailbreaking and need to turn your phone on again after getting to step 10, repeat step 9 (hold down power, hold down home, let go of power, etc) to revert your phone and turn it back on.
