Jailbreaking 3G pay & go UK o2 iphone
I have jailbroken/unlocked 2G iphone & 1G ipod plenty of times....but never a 3G.A friend of mine has asked me to do it for him and I need a couple of things answered...hopefully someone will reply....I have used the search facility and done alot of searching and reading on the net and not really found anything specific to what I want to know.......
OK,I understand the firmware/baseband and all that jazz....what I want to know is when I build a custom 2.2 ipsw using pwnage tool,under the general tab do I select or deselect the 'Activate the iphone' box with the knowledge that the iphone has been activated through itunes already to make it a pay and go with the official carrier (o2), and do I need to increase the root partition?.Everything else seems straight forward to me...I wont need bootloader files as it is not an unlock being performed.Now if the current firmware/baseband are at 2.1 (I have not seen it yet) then the pwnage tool will not allow the baseband to be updated,so allowing the anticipated unlock release,is that right?.
Also, have there been different basebands for 2.0 and 2.1 and should I make sure that it will be left with 2.1 baseband running 2.2 firmware?
Edit:- C'mon people,surely someone in the UK has jailbroken a pay and go iphone and can tell me what boxes to check in expert mode of pwnage tool.

hey mate , I jailbroke my payg 02 iPhone last week . Mine was on 2.1 , I activated through iTunes then just used pwnage tool on my mac create custom 2.2 ipsw put root partition to 635mb then dfu restore. If your iPhone was on 2.0 what I would do is updte to official 2.1 firmware activate then custom 2.2 to maintain the 02.11 baseband mate . If you gonna be using 02 don't tick activate as when you put iPhone through iTunes on custom 2.2 it will activate with no problem. just pm me if u get problems
Thank you for reply...if I have probs i will PM you.....many thanks
hey ^_^ i have jailbroken my iphone 3g with firmware 2.2 everything is running smoothly for me iv had no problems and i done it in my first go (first ever go) lol
im from uk also i used an untouched ipsw file not custom and i dont think the firmware is different from 2.0. or 2.1
Alright there mate,
I am also from the UK, with a iPhone 3g, on o2, and have been trying to jail break my phone and got right up to the last stage where you are in I tunes restoring and it was about 2 min into this when it stopped with an error on screen and that's it?
I was wondering if you have the link for tuitioral you used to do yours mate?
I have ordered my 3G pay and go Iphone from O2 and its on the way coming , will be using it in Africa.
Let me know , whats the firmware thats inside the iphone ? whats the baseband ?
Just need to prepare myself for it.
Anything extra I should know will be highly appreciated
Just got mine it came with 2.2 and i was able to jailbreak and unlock.
It all depends on the store and how well you can talk to the.
By default they have been told to update all iphones to the latest firmware before handing over the firmware.
But the guy who picked up my phone had a chat with them and got them to hand over a phone with the old 2.2 Firmware.
If its on 2.2.1 you can forget about using it outside the UK unless your OK with roaming charges.
2.2.1 (5H11) Jailbreak Only ;)
I'm also O2, I've restore my phone using tutorial in this thread, iclarify, Which involved downloading a firmware building it and then restoring my phone using QuickPwn-225-2.
It seemed to work but the Carrier (null) (null) and the network is no longer available. Also Wifi jumps on and off. However after reading this post if I go into expert mode and don't activate the phone do you think it will work? I don't want to unlock it, just jailbreak.
Do I activate it then try and jail break or vice versa? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Modem Firmware / Baseband 02.30.03
O2 (UK) On Official Contract
Firmware 2.2.1 (5H11)
If it interests anyone - I restore my iPhone and activated it. Then used the ipsw file downloaded by iTunes in the restoration processed and followed this Howto:
