And the iPhone 3G firmware and how you do this is you plug your iPhone in and open iTunes select iPhone from the ‘Devices’ tab and click restore and follow the installer it will then download the ’2.0 Software” once its completed open the Pwnage tool and it will automatically detect the “.IPSW”
PS: Make sure you unselect “Activate” in the general tab of the pwnage tool as this will make your phone not recieve any celluar signal and also another error that i run into all day was the ‘cannot reboot in DFU mode” the fix to this is;
Open your username in finder where the ‘Downloads, Music, Pictures etc’ click library then select iTunes folder and make a new folder in that directory called ‘Device Support’ then try building your custom firmware and installing it via iTunes (Only if you run into the DFU error)

In this video, I demonstrate how to utilize the PwnageTool (2.0.1) to jailbreak and unlock an iPhone with 2.0 software. I’m not using an iPhone 3G, but an old model which uses EDGE only. Remember the difference between jailbreaking and unlocking. Jailbreaking an iPhone will allow custom software (outside of the App Store) to run while unlocking an iPhone allows one to use the iPhone on a different carrier such as T-Mobile. The Pwnage tool gives you an easy to use interface to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone. It provides giant buttons that are easy to read and follow. Note, you should have already downloaded the latest Apple firmware as well as the latest BootLoader files. The tool will prompt you to download them if you haven’t already. I also demonstrate “advanced mode” which gives you options to customize the firmware even further. You can tell it to activate the iPhone or not, disable the partition wipe, customize the root partition size, (pre)install custom packages, customize boot logos, or whether to preload Bootneuter for unlocking. After customization, you click the giant “Build” button which builds a custom firmware with all the customizations defined. You then have to restore this custom firmware to your iPhone through iTunes. This invovles putting the iPhone in DFU mode. The tool does a decent job of guiding through the process of holding the right buttons at the right time. Once this is done, the hard part is over! Just wait until the phone boots, runs the appropriate programs, and you’ll have a jailbroken, unlocked iPhone! Enjoy!
