    Post How to get into dfu mode - 3g
    I have been seeing this issue so much on so many boards I wanted to answer this once and for all...

    When you get the error "Failed to DFU" in the Pwnage Tool when you are Pwning your 3G for the first time - it is normally because a folder is not present in your ~/Library/iTunes/

    The Pwnage Tool requires a folder called Device Support so that it can place a file in it to start the DFU process. If it does not see it it will Fail the DFU as you see.

    Two was to do this.

    1) Open finder - Go to your "~" folder (normally your name) and make a new folder in the ~/Library/iTunes/ called Device Support. Restart Pwnage and it will work.

    2) Open Terminal on your Mac (Applications/Utilities> and run the following commands (You can just copy/paste straight from here, with a Return/Enter after each line):

    cd ~/
    mkdir "/Library/iTunes/Device Support"

    Verify it made the folder - restart the Pwnage tool and it will work.

    Remember to do the next steps to get your 3G to DFU at exactly the same time... and Enjoy your new Jailbroken 3G

    ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support
