United States AT&T user, EDGE iPhone jailbroken, Intel Mac... I only want to Jailbreak, not unlock. What steps should I do differently than what are outlined in this tutorial?
I presume I should first update to the most recent system software and most recent version of iTunes before attempting to jailbreak my iPhone, correct?
I'm hesitant on doing this until I know it's foolproof because I depend on PDANet and don't want to lose the ability to tether my Mac using PDANet. I'm not interested in any AT&T tethering plans.

To all Iphone 2G users who wants to upgrade to 3.0 OS, you need to downgrade your "iousbfamily315.4.1log.dmg". This have an effect in properly putting your Iphone 2G in the correct DFU mode. I experienced it and gave me an error of unsuccessful DFU mode.
Hope this helps.....

Worked like a charm using iTunes 8.2 on Mac OS X 10.5.7 on my iphone 1st gen. 8GB.
I had trouble under Windows Vista.

thank you for sharing

Excellent guide gents, many thanks.
Worked 1st time for me but I did stumble on getting the iPhone into recovery mode as I had previously Pwned it.
Maybe you could add that it's a slightly different process in the guide?
For anyone else experiencing the same problem:
1. Start iTunes
2. Sync if needed and then remove iPhone from dock (or USB cable)
3. Turn off iPhone
4. Hold down the home button and then reconnect, you should get yellow arrow, or usb-to-mac graphic or Mr Jobbs doing his Russian thing if you had previously kept the bundled graphics.

I'm trying to update my GF 2G iPhone. It's jailbroken and unlocked but she left it at firmware 1.1.1 (3A109a) Modem firmware 04.01.13_G
When I try tu use pwnage tool 3.0 to update it, I go as far as to where you select "buid" and when I hit the arrow appears a message that says: "No bootloader V4.6 found" What the heck is that??
I have a 3G and updated a couple of times using pwnage and it never asked me for something like that before...
07-10-2009, 08:16 AM #169Unusable
Tried to go from 1.1.4 to 3.0 using redsn0w 0.7.2 but Sim is not working anymore.

Same problem..... and PROBLEM SOLVED.....
Incredible but True, after about 8 failed attempts of upgrade my 2G from a Powerbook 12" with OSX 10.5.7 and iTunes 8, I spent some hours of navigation on the web, and it's seems the bug could be this.....
"PWNAGE 3.0 DOESN'T WORK ON MOTOROLA CPU.... ONLY WORKS ON INTEL" that's because Pwnage 3.0 crashes on the creating process of custom ipsw file.
After see this comentary on a local south american forum, I try to upgrade from the 1.1.4 to 3.0 with Pwnage 3.0 on my wifes MacBookPro, and works fine.
Then I put my 2G on my Powerbook 12" and use the restore backup file saved a few minutes before on iTunes....... few minutes later...... Ta Daaaaaaa........ 2G upgreaded and working
Regards from Chile and enjoy.......

best tutorial ever. Mine isn't finished but i have good signs which lemme guess it'll work.
You should write that you must stay at itunes 8.2 ; i have 2 imacs, one with itunes 8.2 and the other with the 8.2.1 update ; i tried maybe... 10 times with the updated imac and it didn't work... first time with my "old" itunes, rock on
