    Default JailBreak Iphone 2.1 and iphone 3g :)
    You must install iTunes 8 first, so if you don't have iTunes 8 download or update to it right now.

    If you're using an iPhone, you must download iPhone 2.1 firmware using the below link:

    If you're using an iPhone 3G, download iPhone 3G 2.1 firmware using the below link:

    1. Open iTunes 8, and update to iPhone firmware 2.1.

    2. After you're upgraded to firmware 2.1, uninstall iTunes 8.0, and install iTunes 7.7.* from the download link here:

    Download iTunes -

    3. Click --> Download QuickPWN iPhone 2.1 Jailbreak <--, or use any of these mirrors if this link doesn't work:
    Mirror 1, Mirror 2

    4. Run the QuickPWN-GUI.exe file and browse and select your iPhone 2.1 firmware.

    5. Follow the on-screen steps, choose Installer and Cydia.

    6. Once finished, your iPhone will reboot, but Installer and Cydia won't be visible.

    7. Download & Install DiskAid from here:

    8. Connect your iPhone via USB to your computer and launch the DiskAID program.

    9. When the DiskAid screen launches, you'll see a drop-down box on the bottom left that says "Media Folder". Click on it, and select "Root Folder" instead.

    10. You'll get a Root Partition message, just click ok!

    11. On the left side, scroll down and click the System folder. Now double-click the Library Folder. Scroll down and double-click the "PrivateFrameworks" folder.

    12. On the right side, scroll down and click on the MobileInstallation.framework folder.

    13. Select the MobileInstallation file, and click "Delete from Device".

    13. Download the new MobileInstallation patch from Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

    14. In DiskAid, click "Copy File to Device", and select the MobileInstallation file you downloaded.

    15. After you've copied the MobileInstallation file, reboot your iPhone and you should see a jailbreaked iPhone 2.1 now! Enjoy.

    awesome thx, few questions
    1. With all the updating and uninstalling of iTunes will we have to redo everthing all over again? Ex: add music and video to iTunes? and will all apps will be removed and we have to redl them?
    2. or once we reinstall iTunes 7.7 it will be back to the way it was before?

    Thank You that looks good but my question still stands unanswered. With all that uninstalling & installing will my iTunes be back to the way it is right now or I have to add all the music & video & apps all over again?

    No need tu install Itunes 7. I did jailbreaked my 3G with Itunes8 installed and worked like a charm. Not once but twice to see if it's working. I recomand to use Total Comander with T-pot plugin instead of DiskAid.
