      If your ploblem was seeing t mobile logo but still not jailbroken only allowing you to do emergency calls just go through the pownage tool process while being on recovery mode the whole time and it should work

      I kept trying with it with my new shiny iphone 3g.. couldn't make it in the DFU step just like a lot of user reporting.... I tried mkdir“~/Library/iTunes/Device Support” but nothing
      though i noticed it was always opening a folder with the name "Device" only without "Support"

      So i tried the regular name editing on that folder and added "Support"
      and boom everything is working just fine

      enjoy you guys this great work from our beloved DEV team

      and you guys in MMI thanx for keeping us updated all the time

      Hey This prob sound like a n00b question but can you use the ipsw file which has been pwned on a pc to restore? Or does this tool actully modify the iPhone in some way as well?

      Thanks

      I was using a 1.4 firmware 1st gen phone which is now bricked since using the 2.0 Pawnge Software.

      Had a look and there is no real answer to fixing your phone when it comes up with 1604 error during restore.

      Please learn how to comprehend....
      1st Gen phone will unlock to Tmobile....

      3G will not unlock to Tmobile..

      How do you want the guy to say it?

      If you can't read don't use the guide....

      Please...

      Heh, good point. I have adjusted the guide so this issue will no longer come up.

      I thought the dev team said this was only possible using Ziphone?
      Boy...talk about killing the cat......

      I repect their work but the lenght steps makes using this tool so uncomfortable...

      Why go thru all that? Why can't Just jailbreak or unlock the install Firmware from Itunes like Ziphone? Just in case anyone knows.

      To me this says that the 3G iPhone can not yet be unlocked.. AND that if we're 1st Gen iPhone unlocked with T-mobile it will NOT work...

      So for clarifications.. I have 1st Gen iPhone UNLOCKED with T-mobile.. Can I use this or not?!?!
      Yep

      I Jailbroke my 1st gen phone running 2.0 just fine.

      Now I have one little problem, I have no wifi access.
      In settings I can select my network but All I get on my phone is the edge symbol.

      Error six is a hardware fault try a different usb port

      Option + Click then look for it

      Basically the same way you do the phone only select the ipod touch then just follow the directions. the same, you just wont have to unlock or activate

      This is a lot safer, think of it as getting a custom firm ware from apple (sort of) I used ziphone before and it worked great for a while then I had a bunch of issues. Ziphone does things to your phone I dont know what but they are not that stable a lot of posts about his on the site.

      OK, I don't think anyone has asked this:

      I have a 1st Gen iPhone.
      I upgraded to 2.0 when it came out. I am currently in 2.0. To jailbreak, do I need to downgrade to 1.1.4? If so, how would I do that?

      questions?

      i have itune 7.4 i click on update iphone but tells me to update 7.7 itunes first..so i update to itunes 7.7 first?
