How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.0 Using RedSn0w (Windows)

So folks states that there is good news for the iPhone 2G and it is that the iPhone Dev Team has released a new version of Redsnow which now works to Jailbreak and Unlock the iPhone 2G and also the iPod Touch. Thanks for the mates at, who tested this and posted this. I take no responsibility of testing the software or writting this article. If you have any question then kindly direct them to iclarified forums. Thanks.

As compared to PwnageTool, Redsnow is a much powerful and easy-to-use utility to Unlock the iPhone 2G and works both on Windows and Mac. The latest Redsnow is now capable to Unlock the iPhone 2G running on Firmware 3.0.

To unlock the Firmware 3.0 on iPhone 2G with Redsnow, follow the instructions:

  1. Download the Redsnow tool (For Win For Mac)
  2. Extract the archive and run the utility.
  3. Grab the iPhone Firmware 3.0 for your corresponding device.
  4. Also download the bootloader files, bl39.bin and bl46.bin
  5. Proceed with the on-screen instructions on the utility.
  6. Enter DFU mode and restore to Unlock.

Thats pretty much all of it. If you are simply planning to Jailbreak an iPod Touch, you will need the corresponding firmware and bootloader files are not required.

Note: The above method even works to Jailbreak an iPhone 3G but it won't be able to Unlock it until Ultrasnow is released offiicially.
