      I'm so irritated.
      I keep getting the error "wrong firmware bundle".

      Someone said that I have the 3g firmware, but I've downloaded the one straight from the guide for the 2g phone.

      Can someone PLEASE point me into the direction of the right 2.0 ipsw for the first generation iphone. Is there a difference in filename? I'm sharing super slow internet at my inlaws and am sick of waiting hours in between downloads and then finding out it was the wrong file.

      hey guys, i had the fail issue,
      what i did was go into Library, iTunes, then rename Device to Device Support (I did the terminal thing and it was just Device for some reason)

      after that, i only plugged my iphone right before the DFU thing, then it seemed to work!

      This guide is very confusing. It mentions the iPod Touch only once-at the beginning. I don't know how to do this for my iPod Touch.

      Alright so I have 3G iphone not trying to unlock just want to jailbreak. I am doing everything properly except I cannot get it into DFU mode. i hold the sleep and middle buttons till it resets then keep holding the middle but for a lil longer while screen is black. Pwnage tool then says you failed to go into DFU mode and the next page is the home screen again. why is this happening?

      Hope this helps everyone.... first off, read cspec post. If that doesnt work, you can enter DFU mode manually....

      Difference between DFU mode and recovery mode.

      A lot of people seem to think that DFU mod and Recovery mode on the iPhone are the same. Apart from the blank screen in DFU mode and the iTunes/Dock Cable logo this is another, greater difference.

      When you put your phone in Recovery mode the iPhone still loads up a mac "OS" if you will. Whereas in DFU mode the iPhone does not load up the OS. This means that communication between the iPhone and iTunes in DFU mode is minimal - therefore iTunes will not randomly decide to interrupt you while downgrading firmware etc.

      To put your phone in recovery mode simply:

      1. Switch off the iPhone.
      2. Hold the home button as you connect your iPhone to your PC/Mac.
      3. Continue to hold the home button untill you see the iTunes/Dock Cable logo.

      To put your iPhone in to DFU mode:

      1. Turn on iPhone
      2. Connect to PC/Mac
      3. Open iTunes
      4. Hold down power and home buttons
      5. Wait untill red slider appears to shut down iPhone - keep holding the buttons.
      6.Wait untill the iPhone shuts down
      7. Release power button, keep home button pressed (if the Apple logo appeared you didn't release the power button quick enough - try again!)
      8. Wait about 7 seconds - iTunes should say there is an iPhone connected in "restore mode"

      Your iPhone screen should be blank! No iTunes/Dock Cable logo.
      if there is an iTunes/Cable logo you are in recovery mode not DFU!
      Try again untill you are in DFU mode.

      For anyone who received the Error (6), you're not restoring the phone properly. Your phone MUST be in the DFU mode, and NOT the Recovery mode because they're different (refer to the post above for the difference).

      I was putting the phone into the Recovery mode and it never worked. Follow cspec's advice (top of the page) and re-build the custom restore firmware in Pwnage. I had only plugged in the phone when Pwnage asked whether I have pwned my phone before.

      Hope this helps! =)

      I have a HP DV6000 with Windows Vista Home and really wanted to use PWNAGE today.

      I modified a tutorial from Hack Attack : Dual Boot Leopard and Windows Vista | dailyApps to install OSX on an old external 80 gig hdd.

      I then installed itunes 7.7 and PWNAGE 2.0 on the OSX installation. PWNAGE worked very smoothly.

      Removed the external drive and boot cd, restarted the lappy into Vista and synced my newly pwned 1st gen 2.0 with my backup. now I don't have to wait for WinPWN!!!

      Great work dev team!
