    Default Iphone 3g 2.1

    Hi, I have an iphone 3g with firmware at 2.1. I have downloaded quickpwn 2.1 and was wondering do I still have to restore the iphone to 2.1 downloading the ipsw restore file since it is already there. This is the only part of the process I am confused on. Appreciate any help for this noob. Thanks in advance.

    No you don't, if you have 2.1 on the phone and you need it jailbroken just run quickpwn & follow the on screen instructions.

    But if you want to unlock with yellowsn0w you will need 2.2 fw installed on the phone

    Thanks for the quick response. When I run quickpwn, does it do a restore file in the folder you designate? I assume if it does this is the file you can use to restore the iphone back. Thanks again.

    Hi

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean? Quickpwn will load some files to your phone that will preform an Activation & Jailbreak for you.

    If you wanted to reverse the Quickpwn process you would simply restore with a Std 2.1 firmware.

    Maybe I am using the wrong version of quickpwn. My iphone is at 2.1 . When I run Quickpwn in step 2 it asks to browse firmware for correct ipsw. Where I am confused is that if I do not want to upgrade from 2.1 at this time not sure why it wants me to browse for an ipsw file. Always willing to learn. Greatly appreciate the assistance..

    You need to have a copy of 2.1 firmware downloaded on the pc
    http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....6_Restore.ipsw

    Simply put Quickpwn needs to locate a copy of 2.1 firmware on your PC, It then extracts some necessary files from that firmware, adds the jailbreak/unlock & then uploads it to your phone
