here you go guys new jailbreak for the iphone 3g update.
Jailbreak Firmware 2.2.1
Anyone done it? Safe? I'm on o2 so not fussed about locking issues.
ive just done my 2g iphone worked flawlessly 3g next
Let me know how it goes mate, itching to get it done.
I would guess the official one will be out over the weekend (MAC is already, Windows real soon!)...
My iPhone keeps kicking itself into safe mode so the sooner I update it the better.
Just done my 3G Cydia on my phone now
Just done my 2G iPhone (yep, the one that went swimming this week). Lost a couple of Apps but no big problem.
You will also need the bootloaders
Cheers. Was trying to work out which ones were missing. Cycorder is one
what is bootloaders ?
The binary files required by the Pwnage Tool
work good for me guys
Using QuickPWN on my 2G iPhone required Bootloaders v3.9 and v4.6 as part of the update. No idea why (other than guess mine must have been older despite having fw 2.2 previously) but it did hence providing a link for anyone else who has the same.
Ah, ok m8
My 3G's all done fine. Whats these bootloaders? I take it I didnt need them?
here you go heres the official one Dev-Team Blog
Remember Quickpwn is ONLY for if you dont want to unlock your phone. If you want to be able to unlock with yellowsnow you must use Pwnage/Winpwn.
Quickpwn has an option to Unlock the iPhone. What is the difference between that and Yellowsnow?
Thats only for the 2G iPhone, Quickpwn will not unlock the 3G.
If you Quickpwn a 3G iPhone using the new firmware then Yellowsnow wont work and you will be stuck with a locked phone until the Dev Team work out how to hack the new baseband.
Ah thanks. Only have a 2G phone so did not realise that. But hope to get a 3G one at some point so noted. Cheers
I have v2.2 firmware on my jailbroken iPhone 3G, whats the best way to update it to the latest firmware?
i've just updated to 2.2.1 and jailbroke it again, however, had to re-install all my apps....
is there any way of updating & jailbreaking without having to re-install all your apps again???
apologies if this has been answered before, but i'm still a noob with me phone...
That's what I want to do, update to the new firmware and keep it jailbroken.
I am going to try a program on Cydia called AppBackup and see if that keeps all my apps and information.
Did you just update the firmware using iTunes and then run the latest QuickPWN on it?
yep, but i swear i had an app called AppBackup before, not sure if i should have done a backup on itunes or something???
once i done the update via itunes, all my apps disappeared...so...what have i done wrong???
Did you do a backup with AppBackup before you updated firmware? If so you need to download AppBackup again and do a restore using that program.
How did you do a firmware update on a jailbroken phone?
This is what I do every time I upgrade.
PLEASE NOTE TO BACKUP CYDIA APPS YOU NEED THE PROGRAM APTBACKUP - NOT APPBACKUP
If you havent got it already install AptBackup through Cydia and do a backup
Then sync with iTunes (this backs up your list of installed Apps)
Update to latest Firmware in iTunes
Install Aptbackup through Cydia
Restore through AptBackup
