    Default jailbreak on a factory unlocked iphone 3G from HK

    hi all,

    i bought an iphone 3G, 2 years ago when it first came out, since i am in hong kong, the phone came factory unlocked.
    i have held off until now to do anything to it, so i can support the whole development scene, but as a new generation will hopefully come out soon, i have been thinking of jailbreaking my current iphone 3G.

    i have updated to 3.1.3 with FW 05.12.01, after doing some research on this site, i still have a couple of questions.

    i know i can use pwnage tool 3.1.5 to jailbreak, but doesn't 3.1.5 also unlock? how do i bypass the unlock function when i go through the process of running pwnage tool? or it doesn't matter that i might be unlocking my already factory unlocked phone?

    the tutorial i am using is hxxp://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4254

    thanks in advance for your help

    cheers

    pwnagetool 3.1.5 cannot jailbreak if the phone is running firmware 3.1.3.

    pwnagetool 3.1.5 is only for jailbreaking and creating custom firmware. It does not perform unlock.

    Your phone is a factory unlock, you do not need to do any unlocking and activation. When you connect the phone to itunes, itunes will activate and unlock the phone automatically by talking to apple server.

    The only to jailbreak that phone is to downgrade the firmware to 3.1.2 then you can use pwnagetool 3.1.5 or redsn0w 0.9.2/0.9.3 to jailbreak.

    The step to downgrade is similar to what i described here:

    thanks dtube!!

    clear regarding pwnage tool just for jailbreak 3G and 3GS, i guess i was still stuck on 2G concept, where pwnage tool would also unlock the 2G.

    regarding your downgrading to 3.1.2, on the iclarifed jailbreaking instruction per my original link, it says "How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.1.3 Using PwnageTool", would this be a typo from them then? just wanted to make sure before i take that leap, and i trust feedback from hackint0sh more than anywhere else.

    thanks again

    Just to clarify. You can jailbreak a 3G that is already running OS 3.1.3 with pwnagetool 3.1.5

    As you are factory unlocked, the lack of software unlock for 3.1.3 does not matter in your case.

    I have checked this and confirmed it with dtube. He thought you had a 3GS, not a 3G.

    @aiXer,
    Sorry for the misinformation.
    and thanks to Olethros for rescuing me.

    pwnagetool 3.1.5 will jailbreak your iphone 3G running firmware 3.1.3 just fine.
    However, it does not unlock your 05.12.01 baseband. Nothing to unlock that baseband at the moment.

    ok, sorry for double posting. but im back with some results to my issue.

    this is a short write up on my experience jailbreakin an iphone 3G, factory unlock, i am on FW3.1.3.
    use pwnage tool 3.1.5, everything as planned, until i go to the DFU mode thing, had to try it a few times before i got it, and even then there were some tech connection issue. at one point, it was uploading the custom software, and in the middle itunes just stopped, so my iphone screen had the progress bar at 0, and itunes what just doing nothing.

    anyways, long story short, i turn it off and then turn it back on and went thru the whole dfu process, and finally it worked.

    so if you would like to know more about factory unlocked 3G iphone, give me a shout!

    thanks dtube and olethros for their confirmation
