    Default Can I upgrade my JB 3g iphone to 3.0 yet?
    Every time there is new firmware I swing by here to see if it is safe to do the firmware upgrade then jailbreak my phone again.

    Is it safe to do so? I am with AT&T. If so can I just use quickpwn like I have been? Currently on 2.2.1

    I see all kinds of people with issues, not sure if this is AT&T carriers or not?

    Is there a certain forum here that tells me when I can update my JB phone? I always get confused and lost and have to ask each time.

    thanks!

    I jailbroke my 3G the day Pwnage Tool came out. Quickpwn is going to be released for 3.0 but then will be retired. Start playing with Pwnage Tool. I haven't had a single issue with the jailbreaking process for 3.0. I say totally go for it!

    Ok so what you are telling me is you used Pwnage Tool to jb your phone after you updated to 3.0? Was your phone JB before you updated to 3.0? Did you just update your JB phone to 3.0 or did you restore it before you did so?

    It was jailbroken from 2.1 I think. I jailbroke straight to 3.0 from 2.2.1. There's no point in upgrading to 3.0 first and then jailbreaking. You have to restore a custom IPSW, so save the time and jailbreak first. I was surprised though that iTunes restore it's backup after-the-fact. I wasn't expecting it. All my iPhone settings and saves were restored. Don't forget, you can always restore the default Apple FW. Also, once you JB to 3.0, you can't go back to 2.2.1.

    3.0 is fully JB and unlockable

    You need to restore your phone to 3.0 before using the tools bellow
    if you UPGRADE the JBn space currently on your phone will NOT be formatted right and becomes dead space.

    Use RedSn0w from Devteam (makers of quickpwn and all the magical miracles)
    Dev-Team Blog - redsn0w in june
    and if need be then download Ultrasn0w to unlock to for other networks

    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    Thanks for that info! So the 3G is now unlockable to other networks?


    Ok how do you restore to 3.0 instead of upgrade? Anything I need to know there or is it straight forward? Will be doing this when I go home today.

    To restore, you Option-Click on Restore, allowing you to select your custom IPSW file. I haven't used ultras0w. From reading your posts, there seems to be a handful of issues with using ultrasn0w. I'm not that one to ask though!

    But I don't have 3.0 yet so how would I restore to it? Is there a way to download it on itunes and not install it? Then select restore I assume?

    Sorry if the question sounds dumb...just not at home looking at itunes or anything...

    I forget the exact wording, but when you select update for you iPhone in iTunes, you can select to download only. Pwnage Tool and whatnot will then find the new IPSW file.

    Not sure what you mean here? I used the ipws file from when I RESTORED to 3.0. I just downloaded it from itunes.

    Easy steps. (I'm a AT&T carrier, not sure if this different for other carriers)

    1. Plugin iphone to computer with iTunes open.
    2. When prompted for update select "Download Only" Do not select Download and update
    3. After downloaded. Click Restore. It will automatically restore to most recent firmware
    4. I used redsnow to jb. (opinion, quickpwn is better, or was...not sure if I could use that now so I didn't)
    5. Let the computer and iphone do the rest of the work

    Need more help for "other" steps do a google search. Easy update for other things you may need to do....
