    Smile Does Quickpwn 2.2.5-2 activate as well as Jailbreak the iPhone 3G?

    Hi,

    I have an iPhone 3G on firmware 2.1 and I would like to restore it to firmware 2.2 and jailbreak and unlock it.

    I don't have the official sim card it came with, so when I restore it to firmware 2.2 it will become unactivated and I wont be able to activate it via iTunes. I would like to know if Quickpwn 2.2.5-2 will activate or bypass activation on the iPhone 3G as well as jailbreaking it, so once Quickpwn has done its job, the iPhone 3G will boot to the springboard with all the apps on it instead of the "Slide for emergency" screen, and iTunes will think it is activated so I can sync it normally with iTunes.

    Any help with an answer to my question would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dom

    Thank You.

    Just one more problem, I am using a Aluminium MacBook on Mac OSX 10.5.6 so I have this DFU problem. Do you know if DFU will work if I use quickpwn on my boot camp partition with Windows XP Service Pack 2? ( I don't have iTunes installed on the boot camp Windows partition)

    Thanks.

    No, virtualisation software is not supported, sorry.

    Hi

    I must admit I have never tried because I don't run windows on boot camp partition

    If not you could use the Dev teams suggestion for DFU

    UUUUUPS, sorry, I did not read correct. Boot Camp is supported, only solutions like Parallels for Mac or VMware dont work.
    So just go ahead and boot into Windows from your Mac, it will work.

    sorry, v.

    Ok, thanks n350z and volkspost.

    I really want to restore to firmware 2.2 and jailbreak & activate with quickpwn and then use yellowsn0w to unlock, but I am slightly hesitant as I have seen many reports of bad things happening, as well as success reports.

    Just be careful and you'll be perfectly fine at the end

    Do I need to restore the iPhone 3G to firmware 2.2 in iTunes on the same computer I use Quickpwn to jailbreak and activate it on, or can I do those two things on different computers? Thanks

    As long as you have itunes installed & the std 2.2 firmware on the pc you wish to quickpwn with thats fine.
