    Default SiMpLe Way To UPGRADE to Firmware 3.1.2 UnLOCKED/JAILBROKEN (windows or MAC )

    UPDATED:

    CUSTOM FIRMWARE 3.1.2 is now available


    SiMpLe Way To UPGRADE to Firmware 2.1 UnLOCKED/JAILBROKEN (windows)




    ================================================== ================================
    CUSTOM FIRMWARE 3.0 is now available




    ================================================== ================================
    I already did this and tested in 4 iphone classic. For 3G this will work also, just download a custom 2.1 Firmware specifically for ur device/3g firmware and follow the instructions. (3g - posted on 2nd page )



    1. DOWNLOAD a customize 2.1 Firmware for iphone classic here

    #From Aws3ya of team applei
    + Will Activate / Jailbreak / and Unlock your iPhone
    "Note:
    If WinterBoard and MIM didn't show up after the restore just reinstall WinterBoard and it will come out with the pre loaded themes and MIM too. Cfw comes with Openssh,openssl,Cydia sources Talking Alerts, five icon docks as well." - Aws3ya


    2. USE ITUNES 8 and let your iphone be detected (even it is 1.1.2 or 1.1.1)

    3.SHIFT + RESTORE then choose the customize FIRMWARE 2.1 you downloaded.

    VIOLA & Dance (optional) ;-)

    note: NO NEED to be on DFU mode or else there will be an error. I never had an error for the 4 iphone i upgraded using this process.

    Now if there will be an error use winpwn and follow the instruction, let winpwn make ur iphone to be on DFU mode then if it is now ready for restoring (with the logo of winpwn restore mode) instead of using the FW made by winpwn use the firmware 2.1 that i mentioned above (step1) thru itunes 8
    ================================================== ========================

    another CUSTOMIZE FIRMWARE 2.1 from Phantom
    Here's my 2.1 custom firmware for the iPhone Classic




    whats included are the following:

    - default Apple boot/recovery logos
    - Bossprefs*
    - WinterBoard*
    - Cycorder
    - OpenSSH
    - OpenSSL
    - 5 Dock iCon
    - lots of sources
    ==================================================
    CUSTOM FIRMWARE 2.2 is now available just see page 13 of this thread
    ==================================================
    NOTE FOR 3G UNLOCK as of Jan 2009

    if you want to use Yellowsn0w to unlock your 3G, you cannot use the cfw 2.2 you need to restore to the official 2.2 fw and then quicpwn to jailbreak after that download and install/run yellosno0w to unlock. Also make sure you remove your piggy back sim before restoring to the official fw-->from AWS3YA

    let me get this correct, I wouldnt know how to fix it if I bricked it, so I want to make sure I understand.

    I have 1.1.3 unlocked, activated and jailbroken, so I download one of those firmwares from that website onto my computer.

    Then hook up to itunes 8.0, recognize the phone. Then press shift+restore and select the firmware I downloaded. Then I am done? Nothing else is required...No coding or programming of any kind, correct? I can use the phone as normal as I do now?

    thanks

    all appstore apps will work on 2.1 cfw, both of them have Cydia and Installer by default they are almost identical in what is included in the bundle

    yes, you can just shift+restore and look for the cfw and wait it wil reboot unlocked/jailbroken

    if you update to the original 2.1 fw it will locked your iphone but you can use quickpwn to unlock it.
    all appstore apps are compatible with 2.1

    yes bro that's it, assuming you are using windows just shift+restore and if on mac option+restore and it will look for the fw or in your case the cfw point it to where you saved it, click ok or open and let iTunes do its thing.

    the phantom cfw is currently downloading and then I am crossing my fingers, well see how it goes....

    all went well, not I just have to remember my wifi keys, bummer....

    heres a q about the itunes. Now it says there is another iPhone connected, should it

    1. set up as a new iphone
    2. restore from previous name?

    I would naturally assume the previous, but I dont want it to "restore" it, I just want to resync all the songs and settings

    I think you should set up as new iPhone because Cydia moves some storage space and prior settings may not be compatible.
