      Well I would venture to say that your itunes probably needs to be pwned again therefore, this method wont work. But what is odd to me it restored to what seems a factory 2.0.1 which either is a result from an unpwned itunes or you chose the wrong file. Make sure you have that 3G .ipsw from that site, and you choose that one correctly i.e. put it somewhere different. But, I dont think you be able to do this method at all now. I think you may have to use the new pwnage, which I can only recommend using their step by step guide on pwning 3G

      edit: Try and read carefully, I didnt post for 3G users. I will try and help you but be more careful. and if updating itunes causes this not to work, I wasnt aware. I think I updated to 7.7.1 after pwning to 2.0 though

      It IS possible to choose cydia + installer on winpwn. But you’ve to keep an eye on the partition size.
      I had many problems with “Error: 6″ on itunes and crashing winpwns until I increased the size of the root partition to something you can divide by 8 (I tried 512. I heard 1024 will also work. 512 / 8 = 64. Nothing left in here right?)
      After that I tried it again and winpwn did not crash and iTunes did not get my any error. Even with installer + cydia installed.

      Maybe that will help some guys here.

      Oh and before you say you should have only checked cydia and installer NOt the youtube option...winpwn will always faill building a ipsw that way.

      THanks (HELP!!)
      Well i went a similar route, only i unchecked both installer and youtube, the only checked thing was cydia.. now after it was successfully restored with custom firmware NO SERVICE ! i got pissed, so before i did anything.. i just rebooted my phone and vwalla, back in service i also have AT&T ! so try that i guess a simple restore if you haven't tried it yet... anyways good luck bro !

      Windows XP - SP3

      all right guys i have an iphone 3g jailbroke with 2.0 f/w. my question is do i have to update via itunes to the lastest f/w, and then have a stock phone and then use the new winpwn and jailbreak all over using the new f/w or can i automatically use the new winpwn and start from there although it is already jailbroken. need to know would be much appriciated.

      I wouldnt upgrade to a factory 2.0.1 before doing it because of this --->
      The dev team also warns on their blog that you should not upgrade to firmware 2.0.1 via iTunes. Wait until PwnageTool 2.0.2 is released and upgrade to 2.0.1 with a custom ispw. Upgrading directly via iTunes will lessen the chances of you being able to unlock in the future.
      Now Like I stated earlier. I had a pwned 2.0 1st Gen. all i did was a normal restore mode and shift + restore with a custom .ispw i downloaded from HERE I am not sure this will work with a 3G simply because I hadnt tried it. However there is a download for 3G there.

      Both mine and wifey's work perfect on T Mobile. The 3G cant be unlocked so the download has to be accurate for him to have posted it up.

      If your WinPwn closes during the custom IPSW firmware build. I think this is caused mainly on 2G iphones because you're installing the BootNeuter app that requires extra space and theres not enough space on the secondary partition for it.

      You can;

      A: not install installer or cydia which is crazy, or:

      B: increase the parition by 4 MB to allow room for everything. Default size is 500mb. Move the slider just a tiny bit, you can only go in increments of 4, and you need to do it with your mouse and not arrow keys on your keyboard, otherwise it will go in increments of 10.

      (Try 512 it works for me)
