    Default iPhone 3G BB 06.15 FW 3.1.3

    ok guys here is my issue:

    yesterday a friend of mine came with an iPhone 3g stuck in recovery mode he did not know which FW or BB version it had, he just said that by mistake he restore it on iTunes and that was the end it got stuck on recover mode, i tried restoring stock FW from 4.0 all the way to 4.2.1 with tiny-umbrella open to see if he had shsh saved with no luck finally i restored to 3.1.3 and the phone finally booted up thats when i noticed the phone is on BB 06.15.

    Now i know that once you update to the ipad bb there is no more stuck fw restore posibility, it all has to be custom FW, however i'm a Windows user and i cannot use Pwnage tool, i got online a cust 4.2.1 FW but i've being trying to restore to that FW without luck, itunes wont let me, anyone has any ideas how can i solve this without a mac?

    Thanks in advance.

    We strongly recommend that you do NOT use custom IPSW that you find on the net. These could contain virus/malware or simply might not be what they claim to be (I have seen original IPSW renamed as custom IPSW - people have stupidly installed this and lost jailbreak/unlock)

    If you are sure you can trust this custom IPSW, you need to use redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1 to "enter pwned DFU mode" with a 3G 4.2.1 original IPSW downloaded from here. http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm

    Then you can restore the custom 4.2.1 IPSW.

    This is a good question, especially with regards to pwned DFU mode.

    It's a historical limitation of the way way redsn0w works. Redsn0w is designed to take an original IPSW and extract some key files from the IPSW. It patches these files and builds a small ramdisk. Then it sends the patched boot files and the ramdisk to the phone, then tells the phone to boot from the ramdisk. Once that happens - the ramdisk can then access the existing operating system on the iPhone and jailbreak it.

    Redsn0w asks for an IPSW - because this is the simplest (legal) way to get these boot/kernel files. It also allows the detection of which features to enable (for example custom logos are not supported on newer devices) based on detecting what model the IPSW is designed for.

    When geohot's pwned DFU mode exploit (called limera1n) was released, they added support for this to redsn0w. This exploit can be used to allow booting from patched files/ramdisk (essential for the 3GS and newer devices that are not vulnerable to the pwnage2 exploit)

    However the "Just enter pwned DFU mode right now" option doesn't really need any files from the IPSW (as far as I understand). I think it was simply easier to code this feature in the same screen as the other jailbreaking options (a screen that only appears *after* you have supplied redsn0w with an original IPSW).

    Thanks a lot for the information I've being out of the iPhone jailbreaking / unlocking community for some time now and i did not remember that redsnow ask you for the original IPSW as a first step, and for sure did not know what was the logic behind it.

    also thanks for the heads up on downloading a custom FW online for sure its not recommended, in my case i had a friend who own a MAC sent me one online so i knew it was done right.

    Anyways, thanks for your help, i used redsnow as you recommended and the iPhone is on 4.2.1 with 06.15 BB working great right now, back from the dead !

    Thanks
