Unlocking IPhone 2G with 3.0 OS!

Its time to explore the possibilities of unlocking IPhone with 3.0 OS. Like always, I managed to find an article in the net about unlocking the 2G phone with 3.0 OS. Please note not all the features advertised in the Apple site will work on IPhone 2G. Few of the features are exclusive to IPhone 3G and IPhone 3GS phones.

The minimum requirement for unlocking iPhone 2G are as follows:

* Itunes 8.2
* redsnow - Search for redsnow 0.7 Version in Google.
* BL 3.9 - Download from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=1H0XAZWQ
* BL 4.6 - Download from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=6OF2OR03
* ipsw - Download from http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net/content.info.apple.com/iPhone/061-6580.20090617.XsP76/iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw

1) Store all the files under one Folder - IPhone3.0
2) Connect your IPhone to ITunes and hold down the shift key by selecting IPhone displayed on your left and then click restore button.
3) Be cautious to choose only Automatically sync when this phone is connected.
4) Now select the .ipsw file already downloaded from the Iphone3.0 folder.
5) After the firmware update in ITunes is completed, Launch the redsnow application from the Iphone3.0 Folder.
6) Click browse, then navigate to the .ipsw file which we used for restoring the iphone.
7) Make sure the message " IPSW successfully identified" is displayed on the window, then click next.
8) Select " Install cydia" and " Unlock" and press Next.
9) Then Browse for the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader from the IPhone3.0 folder and press Next.
10) Now plug your Iphone into the computer and make sure it is OFF and then click Next. Don't worry if the IPhone is already connected during the process.
11) Please follow the instructions clearly and take great care to do the process as instructed on the screen.
12) The Iphone will reboot in between and will show "Done" on the window, then click Finish.
13) Now the iphone will run a few programs and hopefully your iphone will be unlocked and Jail broken.

Again, this information is gathered from different articles on the internet and please try this out at your own risk !

There is software named as Digeus I always use it when there are problems with windows. I also recommend to use Windows Tune Up Suite form Windsty. It is the smartest way to solve computer problems.
