Jailbreak iPhone 2.1

Written By Hans Berger on Friday, September 12, 2008 | 1:25 PM

Do you want to Jailbreak iPhone 2.1? Well, now you can! Unfortunately it's not an easy process as it was with the iPod Touch which was completely GUI based. You will need to carefully follow the below instructions to jailbreak your iPhone 2.1. This tutorial also works for the iPhone 3G.

jailbreak iphone 2.1, jailbreak iphone 3g 2.1


You must install iTunes 8 first, so if you don't have iTunes 8 download or update to it right now.


If you're using an iPhone, you must download iPhone 2.1 firmware using the below link:
http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net/content.info.apple.com/iPhone/061-5202.20080909.gkbEj/iPhone1,1_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw

If you're using an iPhone 3G, download iPhone 3G 2.1 firmware using the below link:
http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net/content.info.apple.com/iPhone/061-5198.20080909.K3294/iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw

1. Open iTunes 8, and update to iPhone firmware 2.1.

2. After you're upgraded to firmware 2.1, uninstall iTunes 8.0, and install iTunes 7.7.* from the download link here:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_itunes/

3. Click --> Download the jailbreak from the downloads page <--, or use any of these mirrors if this link doesn't work:


4. Run the .exe file and browse and select your iPhone 2.1 firmware.

5. Follow the on-screen steps, choose Installer and Cydia.

6. Once finished, your iPhone will reboot, but Installer and Cydia won't be visible.

7. Reboot your iPhone, and Installer & Cydia should show up!

does anyone know of a download location for itunes 7.7.x for mac?

is it possible to make mac-version of this app?? And for ipod too.

This guide is almost perfect except I have do delete /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist before the Installer and so shows up again. Thanks Quickpwn! :)

The process works but I'm having no luck getting any of the applications to show up in springboard. Once I delete the com.apple.mobile.installation.plist the device just hangs until I hook it back up to itunes.

Anonymous
September 12, 2008 at 4:06 PM

Well I take that back after doing the whole process over again. This time after hooking it back up to itunes it takes about 5 minutes and then comes to life and now the new icons are there!

http://glogger.mobi/v/46164 Here is the terminal running on the iPhone3G 2.1 :) Looks like the 2.0 apps works just fine :) Also, if anyone wants to preserve the partition (like how I have 2G on root partition), just do the updates (instead of restore) and run through this tutorial again! :)

September 12, 2008 at 4:13 PM

Ditto deleting /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist as stated above. Did that, rebooted and all is well :)

Question.. I used Quickpwn to get my Iphone's 2.1FW hacked, but now it just hangs at the apple logo.. I can't find a way to get the springboard to show up..? Occasionally, it will restart, and after a few minutes, it will vibrate twice. I didn't brick my phone did I?

In the pwning process, i'm at the step before I used DiskAid to delete / copy the patched file.. Any help is appreciated..!

you cant update back to 8.0 after?

Anonymous
September 12, 2008 at 4:49 PM

With 2.0.2 (I'm not sure if this still works with 2.1), and the apple logo of death (hanging at the apple logo), assuming the phone is already jailbroken:

- ssh to the phone
- cd /var/mobile
- mv Applications A (or any name you like)
- The phone should finish booting now, but you will be missing many of your icons
- mv A Applications
- install any app, and the icons will reappear

If the phone is not already jailbroken, the only solution I know of is to restore the phone.

Other note: I believe the two vibrations means the filesystems are mounted.

What's the point of this if you can't use iTunes 8? iTunes 7 won't work with the 2.1 firmware.

I opted to use the Pwnage boot logo, yet when I turn my phone on, the logo doesn't appear, just a black screen. It boots fine but I miss the little pineapple :(.

Is there a way I can SSH the logo back in?

It doesn't work... I've tried restoring 3 times already. Maybe it only works with locked / legit 1.0 iPhones :(

Anonymous
September 12, 2008 at 5:42 PM

I cannot get Installer or Cydia to show either. I know it worked because I installed a cracked version of Netshare via iTunes without a problem. I also downloaded a free app from the app store but even after reboot they (Cydia and Installer) don't show. Any suggestions?

September 12, 2008 at 5:43 PM

has anyone tried this yet? does it work? can i still use itunes 8 after i install jailbreak 2.1? Will all my jailbreak apps delete too if i install jailbreak 2.1?

Anonymous
September 12, 2008 at 5:48 PM

Well, I have followed the instructions 5 times, even QuickPwning on a PC that has never used iTunes 8 and It restores to 2.1 fine, but when i QuickPwn it just sits on the Apple logo randomly rebooting......

September 12, 2008 at 6:39 PM

awesome thx, few questions
1. With all the updating and uninstalling of iTunes will we have to redo everthing all over again? Ex: add music and video to iTunes? and will all apps will be removed and we have to redl them?
2. or once we reinstall iTunes 7.7 it will be back to the way it was before?
3. What about cracked apps, will they be deleted and non-usable?

September 12, 2008 at 6:53 PM

MAJOR PROBLEM!!!!!

I followed the instructions, and everything seem to work fine. I was able to get Cydia and Installer back. When I redownloaded Winterboard and Vista, the Iphone restarted. But what was odd was that the Quickpwn logo didn't show up!

NOW IT WON'T START!!! FUCK!!!

I have tried going into the DFU mode again, but no luck! Putting it into the wall charger, AGAIN NO LUCK!!! Did I just throw $400 into the fire?

Someone please help me. =*(

Keep trying to get it into restore mode, took me 30 minutes to get it to work after a similar issue. still trying to get 2.1 jailbroken.

Scud
September 12, 2008 at 7:05 PM

oH WAIT HOLD ON HOLD!!! I fixed it!!!!

Alright, ahem. Enough of the 13yr-old typing. I'm sure any of you would react the same way I did if you realized your Iphone seem broken and out of warranty.

I was quite ready to give up. Consider selling the Iphone 3g and salvage the cost to pick up a new one.

Anyways, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO A TEE!!! Originally, I did not restart the computer after uninstalling the Iphone. When I did so, after redoing the steps, the Iphone was able to boot back up properly. I'm too happy to keep typing. I'm just going to avoid Winterboard for now and just deal with the ugly default board. Ugh.

Try to press the power button and the home button together for 10 seconds first. Release both buttons and switch it on again. If it is not working do it again and move the Iphone into the DFU mode after that procedure.

Great item, and as I'm downloading the 2.1 update, I think I'm going to wait for a while to upgrade it. Thanks to everyone to has tried this and posted their success/failure reports it was your info that brought me to this conclusion. As my only main issue with 2.0.2 is that with 3G on my THB bluetooth handsfree is useless but disabling the 3G makes it work fine, I can deal with slowdown on everthing else for a while.

Thanks again

Im gonna wait until a GUI version is available that also patches iTunes 8. What's the point of jailbreaking it if I can't sync it with iTunes.

SMORyob
September 12, 2008 at 8:34 PM

I did it anyway, and I'm very happy about it. I first updated to iTunes 8, downloaded (and downloaded only) the 2.1 firmware. After that I RESTORED and configured it as a new device. Than I closed iTunes 8, QuickPWN'd with the latest release on quickpwn.com, updated Cydia to the latest version, and all my favorite apps (except for Categories) just work fine.

Just in case some of you are still wondering, yes once its Jailbroken you can go back to 8.0 to sync tings to your device

Gargo
September 12, 2008 at 8:48 PM

Followed the instructions to jailbreak and then reinstalled iTunes 8.0 back. Now my phone is synching like the first day ... :D thanks to everybody working for us to get the real power of the iphone in our hands!

I just did what was necessary and had the two icons then I left my iPhone alone for 1 hour and found it not responding I had to do a "hard" reboot and I found myself in restore mode, I did restore with iTunes 8 and I'm back to the beginning with an unjailbroken phone, snif, maybe there is a mecanism in the 2.1 that detects the trick.

Extremely aggrevated!!
September 13, 2008 at 12:10 AM

OK so I've been trying to do this since 3am and it's now 9am and it's STILL not working:/!!!

Everything is great until Quickpwn does whatever it does.

I installed iTunes 8 upgraded to 2.1, uninstalled Itunes 8 reinstalled 7.7, ran quickpwn then that's where the problems begin...I never see the pineapple logo again after this point or anything other than a black screen for that matter.

I still continued with the diskaid process anyway followed all directions still no luck. I even took the extra steps other people tried:
delete /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist

still a black screen???

If I don't do this right the first time will it not work ever or something???

What the hell do i do???????

Someone who got this right please help me...

September 13, 2008 at 1:21 AM

yeah the itunesmobiledevice.dll appears in the terminal windows at the time of pawning. But i guess you should just ignore that.

Besides, GOOD NEWS is that iTunes 8 Works absolutely fine with my jailbroken 2G 2.1 firmware. So far so good.

Just wish i could change the boot logo as currently its blank. Help Anyone???

Succesfully quickpwned with 3g iphone, but even after using diskaid Installer and Cydia are not available. Did i miss a step?

JAY
September 13, 2008 at 1:27 AM

See guys, i'm no magician here. It worked for me and so it can for you.

While pawning, the moment you go in DFU mode, you see a quick progress message that shows 1% right upto 100%

Now HOLD ON over here. This where, im sure most of you go wrong.

DO NOT CLOSE the terminal screen yet.

Things you might want to check:
1) Your wire should be firmly connected to the USB port.
2) If it doesn't work the first time, keep trying. Trust me, you'll get it after a few shots.
3) Be calm & patient... breath deeply lols

JAY
September 13, 2008 at 1:30 AM

Yes Rob, you did miss a step indeed.
As the forum speaks, please follow this step.

Choose Rootfolder in diskaid and go to
/private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/

On your right side you will see "com.apple.mobile.installation.plist"

Well delete it and reboot.]

Happy pwning!

QuickPwn works great on 2.1 firmware, but the updated Installer app isn't so stable. It managed to install Adikus Pool on the third try but left no icon and other entries don't go anywhere once clicked.

Thanks to Raymond Lo for indicating deletion of the xml package list file. That helped my issue with newly installed applications not appearing, but Installer 4 is still hit-or-miss.

September 13, 2008 at 3:40 AM

UPDATE: Restore fixed everything. I think my mistake was forgetting to uninstall Apple Mobile Device Driver. Jailbreak worked after uninstalling that and installing old iTunes. :D

Everything went great, used 7.7.1.11. Installed everything as described. Deleted cache file, rebooted phone and see Cydia and Installer. Reinstalled 8.0 Itunes. Now trying to install apps from 8.0 doesn't work. Can't install apps from SSH.. Reboot iphone and the icons do not show up when doing it from SSH. Reboot the iphone after installing from 8.0 and Icon shows up on springboard but when you try to run it it says it cannot open the application. Any ideas?

like many mentioned, follow the steps closely and i mean it. so long you follow right to the details, it should work. it worked for my 3G and I am happy. i did not install winterboard as it says only support till 2.0.2 hence I will wait. I still have my apps and games installed after the whole process. cheers to winpwn. great job.

Great job! 3 times I tried, always got stuck on the Apple logo. 3 times I restored from iTunes and reactivated. The 4th time it worked. Cydia and Installer visable. BossPrefs, Winterboard, etc all working. Synced with my iTunes 8 and restored tunes, photo's and apps with no problem. Was scary for a while but worth it.

Thanks again for such a speedy jailbreak procedure.

I just have a thought - You can't brick your iphone. You can always put the phone into DFU mode and recover. I've trashed my V2 iphone many many times and I've always been able to recover. If you can't put it into DFU mode you are doing it wrong. If hacking your iphone stresses you to the point you freak out like a 3 year old after only 5 minutes then don't do it. Hacking isn't for you. Keep your iphone stock and maybe put some custom stickers on it.

You guys are complete idiots. This was my first jailbreak and was successful. If your too dumb to jailbreak your phone and need somebody to hold your hand then jailbreaking is not for you. Maybe buy a cool case instead and put a sticker on the back to customize it.

Just follow the directions, and read the comments above. Everything was already answered for you. If you mess up, go to DFU mode and start over.

Anybody know when OrbLive is coming back out? Can the beta version that was released in August be distributed to me?

2. I did exactly all the steps mentioned above

3. 1s time the 5sec, 10sec, 30sec - I failed, 2nd time i did correctly

4. Got jailbroked, but could not see the cyndia & installer

5. I went thru this forum comments and deleted the file "/private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist"

6. Restarted and now i'm able to see cyndia & installer

7. Now, re-started again and went to cyndia, IT WORKS

8. It asked me "Who are you ?" and i've selected Hacker (since im a .NET guy, not mac)

9. Cyndia asked me to do 3 essential upgrades

10. All 3 essential upgrades done, Cyndia restarts

Thanks

I used the phone in Hungary with TURBOSIM. I upgraded the phone for 2.1 it worked fine. But I restored factory settings and that set back everthing. After that the phone locked itself so I can not use it in Hungary even with the TURBOSIM. I tried to restore the phone for 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 but I always get error messages. The Jailbreak is not working because when I use the QUICK PWN and it is done the phone restarting again and again under the apple logo. I really need some help guys.

Cooked a new 2.02 custom firmware, and restored using itunes 7.7. Went to other box running iTunes 8, and restored from my latest backup. I will wait until there is a new WinPwn for 2.1 firmware, or a quickpwn that supports unlocking as well.
