    Unhappy Can any of you help me fast here?
    I had to perform a restore on my iphone due to some crash I had before installing the newest update last night and I didn't had any backup.

    But first of all I wanna install Cydia again, it's just that I'm pretty new to the iPhone, I was a HTC Tilt owner and learned a few things on hacks and registry and stuff.

    So.. I just need some steps so I can install Cydia and winterboards and SSH which I had at first when a friend of my brother set my iphone and he seems to be to busy to explain it to me.

    Now it's my turn.

    Thanks.

    The newest update is 2.1, so i assume you have that on your phone

    are you on a Mac or Windows?
    If you are on a Mac, then there is a new version of pwnage and quickpwn that will do it for you (I suggest quickpwn - slightly less to do) blog.iphone-dev.org

    If you are on a PC, it is possible, but my advice would be to hold off until quickpwn for windows has been released, as (no offence) you sound like you might not find it the easiest route. (edit: I did it, so it can't be that hard!!)

    So here is the technique, it works perfectly.

    A third technique, (edit: for 2.5g 1st gen iphones) which will work if you havent updated to itunes 8 (ie you have itunes 7.7) you can use a pre-made jailbroken firmware download from here and you will need to put your phone in DFU mode using the video below and then when itunes loads, hold down shift and click "restore" then locate the firmware you downloaded

    So this is the windows firmware for the 3G while running iTunes 7.7?

    **Edit: Nevermind I see it is for the 2G**

    my apologies, it seems the available firmwares are only for 2.5g NOT 3G, so dont use them as it will damage your phone.

    So its the second method if you are on Windows.

    Sorry .. a second point, if you follow the instructions for the windows jailbreak, you do not need to uninstall itunes 8 and install itunes 7.7, just make sure you press ctrl+shift+esc and end all processes to do with apple. Quickpwn also does this for you, but always worth double checking

    edit: missed your edit

    I already upgraded to 2.1

    I'm pretty sure I have iTunes 8

    I have mac a and a pc laptop.

    I will use my sister's MAC.

    Now the steps I must follow are?

    Thank you all for helping, I really don't want to get messed.
