    Hey thanks creasy for sending me the link but it doenst work either -the WO_ACT) (its not "activated" - i think its my carrier) - So far when i google custom firmware 3.1, ive tried all 4 (768mb, 1gb - activate + unactivated) The activated allows me to use the iphone but i get no reception whilst the unactivated asks for an activated sim =(

    i've tried everything!!! =( does any1 have any other ideas? But thanks for all those who've tried to help!!!!

    Awesome, tried it first time, worked 100%. Although kind of dissappointed since the person I was doint it for had officially upgraded to 3.1 so the baseband is 05.11.07 and therefore can't be unlocked. Everything else is working perfectly including Cydia, Winterboard, etc. Thanks a lot. Now the wait begins for the unlock for the new baseband.

    Ok peeps here it is enjoy and if have any problems ask me at [email protected]

    This is HOW TO JAILBREAK iPhone 3G 3.1 on windows! (XP,VISTA,7)

    **WARNING**WARNING**WARNING**
    Unless you aren't worried about potentially upgrading your baseband, I would advise you not to try this tutorial until there is an Unlock method available for the 3.1 Firmware. If you will never need your iphone unlocked then it is perfectly fine to use this jailbreak method.

    Before you start you need to have the following:
    1. a copy of itunes 8.2 if you don't already have it installed. (download it here Itunes 8.2 Link
    2. a copy of custom firmware 3.1 I cannot tell you how to acquire this.
    3. a copy of Redsnow 0.8 (download it here Redsnow 0.8 Link
    4. a copy of the OFFICIAL 3.0 firmware

    *If you currently have your iphone jailbroken at the 3.0 level, put your phone in RECOVERY Mode (not DFU) and use steps 1,2,3,14 & 15

    **If you currently have your iphone at an OFFICIAL 3.1 level, complete all of the steps.


    Step 01: If you have Itunes 9 installed then uninstall it.

    Step 02: Install Itunes 8.2

    Step 03: Run Itunes 8.2

    Step 04: if you get an "itunes library.itl" error then delete or move it from your itunes folder in "my music"

    Step 05: Once you have iTunes
    8.2 running, put your phone into DFU mode

    Step 06: click "ok" when itunes tells you it detects your phone in recovery mode

    Step 07: once your phone is in DFU mode, hold your shift key and click restore in itunes

    Step 08: a window will open and you will now locate the official 3.0 firmware file and select it

    Step 09: itunes will now install the official 3.0 firmware onto the phone

    Step 10: at the end of this process you will likely get a error 1015 or something like that. ignore the error by clicking ok and your iphone should be showing the usb and itunes logo at this point.

    Step 11: Now open up Redsnow 0.8

    Step 12: Browse for the 3.0 official firmware and follow the directions that the software gives to jailbreak the iphone. during the jailbreak process for 3.0, you will notice that it seems to freeze at the "installing activation bundles" part. Don't worry, it is not frozen. Just give it a little while and it will finish.

    Step 13: At this point your phone might have the USB and Itunes image back on it. This is fine. Open iTunes back up and you will probably be greeted with the "itunes detects your phone in recovery mode". Click OK.
    DO NOT PUT THE IPHONE
    IN "DFU" MODE AT THIS POINT. Leave it in "Recovery Mode". Leave it as it is.

    Step 14: Once again, shift click the itunes restore button and select the 3.1 custom firmware.

    Step 15: THAT'S IT! Let it load the 3.1 custom firmware and you are set!

    I have done this on 3 3G iPhones and can confirm that this process absolutely works. I hope this helps all of you that have been waiting on a windows version of redsnow that jailbreaks 3.1. This process may take more time but it will work.

    Just to clarify a few steps in this process...

    If you are on official 3.1 firmware, you have to downgrade to a jailbroken 3.0 firmware and have iTunes 8.2 installed in order to restore the CUSTOM 3.1 firmware. If you are already on a 3.0 jailbroken firmware then just make sure you have iTunes 8.2 installed because itunes 9 will give you error 16xx messages when you do a restore for CUSTOM 3.1 firmware.

    I noticed that the majority of my steps look as though this is just to jailbreak to 3.0 SO i just wanted to make it clear that this is actually instructions to jailbreak 3.1

    Try rebooting it, if that don't work, restore it to 3.0 and jailbreak it again.

    Apple 3.1 FW updates the baseband on 3G and 3GS iPhone. There is no unlock (non-authorized carrier) available for the new baseband. JB will work on the 3G, but no carrier unlock. 2G phones are not effected. Can unlock and jb.

    I guess my question 2 u would b what's your carrier? Bcuz if u r with AT&T u should b good . What happen 2 me was that when I updated on accident and then tried the jailbreak method at the top I had lost my signal no service 4 like 2 days until I ran n2 the post about useing the wrong 4matted FW and also I changed the iTunes I was using from 8.2 to 8.2.1. And yea I'm also a 3g 3.1 jb AT&T as well.

    Why do we have to use iTunes 8.2? Will this not work with 9.x?

    9.X is the reason for the 1600 errors. 8.2 doesnt throw out those errors...apparently you can use 9.x with a program called iREB to load custom 3.1 FW. I haven't tried it myself, but its said to work....

    are cydia and icy both installed? if so just keep on trying cydia, dont mess with icy, and eventually you will be able to DL the needed updates for cydia. its just gonna take a while...

  21. #260
    Followed the process and it leaves Cydia in some hosed state - now I cannot get Cydia to work any more - get the "Couldn't configure pre-depend dpkg for ncurses, probably a dependency cycle"...

    Such a joy...

    Yep - it's all hosed now - Cydia says it doesn't know what version it is and says it is not fixable and is caused by having both Cydia and Icy installed during jailbreak.

    But I didn't have a choice following these instructions as the ipsw apparently has both on it...so now what, start over and go with the standard Apple 3.1 fw???
