Dev-Team - redsn0w Forecast for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G Jailbreak in June


NOTE: iPhone 3G S need not apply!

While I don't have anywhere near the midichlorians Jeremy has for all things Jailbreak, I can tell when the infamous iPhone Dev-Team has their game on:

redsn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows and Mac OS X (there are some issues using redsn0w with OS X PPC, please use an Intel Mac until we have this problem resolved).

They point out that that redsn0w provides similar functionality to Quickpwn, and provide more instructions in their full post.

As always, experts only and proceed completely at your own risk. If you don't understand something -- put your iPhone down and back away slowly!

If you need help, check out our iPhone Jailbreak Central forums.

Dev-Team - redsn0w Forecast for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G Jailbreak in June


i found that redsnow was just as easy to use as quickpwn was. Though if you have access to a mac pwnage is still the best.
PS. Here's to hoping the geniuses on the dev team can jailbreak the 3gs. I need my SB Settings.

ORLY, you can't say s e x y? really? BTW I meant to add my phone is a 2g bought the day before an unlock was available, cash, when that was possible, without a contract in the US.

This was easy as heck for a first time users, download, run..follow on screen instructions..done. Love my jailbroken 3G :)

What should my carrier setting under 'settings => general => about' show after being unlocked? This is for a 2g running 3.0 software jailbroken and (hopefully) unlocked unit using redsnow
