5. In next step, select 2.0.2 and click next.
6. Then, it will ask if you want to use the official carrier. Click thumbs up for yes and thumbs down for no. Skip the next step if you click
thumbs up in this step.

16. Then, release power button and keep holding home button till countdown ends.

18. Then, open iTunes to restore to the custom iPhone Firmware in iTunes. To do this, while holding shift, click restore and select the custom firmware.
19. After the phone reboots, it has been pwned successfully with Cydia and Installer on home screen
Notice: If you face crash while building firmware, use the expert mode and set partition size between 700 MB to 900 MB

after im done with everything? to unlock, do i go to clydia and install the bootneuter to unlock my iphone to work with a tmobile sim card?
as i was using the bootneuter, the auto-lock was on for 1 minute. the message on the screen as the bootneuter was running said "DO NOT INTERRUPT". i had to restart my iphone since it started to act up. now im trying to restore it back to factory settings to redo the whole process again. should i back up with the one that reads "unknown" or the very first backup it as since ive tried one and it failed to back up.
by the way, before doing the backup, my iphone screen reads "cannot make calls, contact apple support"

I am currently still using firmware 1.1.2 (jailbroken and locked through AT&T). Before I update the jailbreak, should I upgrade to the most current firmware available through itunes or just do it using my current 1.1.2 firmware? Just don't wanna mess anything up -_- thanks
And before I start WinPwn, should I have already have my Iphone hooked up to my computer via USB cable? And do I still have to go to my Task Manager and end all applications that have itunes on it prior to Win Pwn? thanks again...lol

where does the custom firmaware go?
09-03-2008, 09:42 PM #18
I cannot even view this program properly on my computer. I am using a standard 20" widescreen lcd. The thumb up and thumb down aren't even present on the screen on step 6. I wheeled my mouse over the entire window but it can't pick up anything.
This sucks.. lol am I the only one with this problem?
I changed my window resolution to everything and it doesn't help.
