    Default Help Jailbreaking iPhone 3g

    Ive tried several times to jailbreak my iPhone 3g with no luck. bb is 5.15.04 & with itunes version 4.2.1 Im not interested in unlocking the phone because Im not going to be using it as a phone but as an ipod. Ive tried greenpois0n with no luck & Im not familiar with redsn0w. Can anyone help me at all? This will be the 2nd forum Ive posted to with no luck. Thanks!!!!

    Redsn0w is required to "hacktivate" the iPhone so that it can be used as an iPod. As far as I understood, greenpois0n never added this feature.
    So.. you need to use redsn0w to jailbreak/hacktivate then greenpois0n to untether.

    You don't need to unzip the IPSW

    Then you are either downloading them from the wrong place or you are using a web browser that tries to be too smart. If you are using safari untick "open safe files" in preferences. Otherwise use a different web browser (I mostly use chrome these days)

    So, I think Im on my way to getting it jailbroke now but Im just getting started. Will let you all know the steps once I have it working.

    After you download your ipsw file & I got mine at iClarified! Follow these steps
    Open "My Computer" or any hard drive or folder. From the top menu, choose Tools>Folder options, go to the "View" tab and un-check "Hide extensions for known file types." Click OK. Now browse to your downloaded firmware, which will undoubtedly end with ".zip" Change it to .ipsw and you should be good to go.
    Once I did that I got the little icon to change to what it supposed to look like which looks like to me a white leggo piece.
    Then go to itunes and highlight the name of your device & hold down the shift key while clicking restore. Put in ipsw file & it will take off! lol Im still waitin on restore then will go to Redsn0w to see if that jail breaks me!

    Then open your unzipped Redsn0w file & jail break!

    After much reading and frustration with little help, I now have my iphone 3g jailbroken!! :-)
