Official Jailbreak for Windows/MAC

Written By Unknown on Friday, January 30, 2009 | 1:22 AM


The iPhone Dev Team has just released the official jailbreak for MAC users.

Before you update here are some important things you should read first.

1.  iPhone 3G users:  If you want to unlock your iPhone 3G, do not upgrade to firmware 2.2.1 through iTunes, you must use a custom firmware through PwnageTool (only available to MAC users).

2. Firmware 2.2.1 permanently upgrades the iPhone 3G's baseband to 02.30.03 and yellowsn0w unlock will not work with this baseband (so you won't have an unlock if you upgrade your baseband).  You must make a custom firmware with baseband 02.28 using PwnageTool.

3.  If you're using MAC 105.6 you won't be able to get into DFU Mode but here is how you can do this:

  1. You will need an account with ADC (Apple Developer Connection) this is free and takes a few minutes to sign up, you should read the terms and conditions carefully and you should only sign up if you are thinking of developing applications in the future - http://developer.apple.com/mac/

  2. Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily Log release for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33” (yes, that is a “5” in 10.5.5 - this is a developer debug package of the USB kernel extension).

  3. Install IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg from within the disk image

  4. Reboot your system!

iPhone 3G locked users

If you don't ever want to unlock your iPhone 3G then just update to firmware 2.2.1 through iTunes and jailbreak.

iPhone 2G users

Just update to firmware 2.2.1 through iTunes and  jailbreak.

iPod Touch 1G users

Update to firmware 2.2.1 through iTunes and run QuickPWN to jailbreak.

iPod Touch 2G users

There is no jailbreak available yet, the iPhone Dev Team is working on redsn0w.

Your Message would it be possible for people with 3g to unlock their phone using windows in the future??

January 30, 2009 at 1:54 AM

Thank you very much, i Am French and it's works perfectly !!!

January 30, 2009 at 2:05 AM

I tried running quickpwn for mac and I did the part that says hold down power and home then just home. after that the phone turns off and then itunes opens and says it can not recognize it and to unplug it and plug it back in and press ok. I tried it first where I just click ok and waited on quickpwn but nothing happens, so then I tried it again with unplugging it but nothing happens there either. I have to hold down home and power to turn it back on. what am I missing? this is the first time I have tried to jailbreak my iphone. it is brand new and I did install the 2.2.1 update.

Hi,I bought a 3G phone yesterday. The baseband on it is 2.31.03 and firmware 2.21. In this post you mentioned that it's possible to make a custom firmware with older 2.28 baseband . Can you explain how to do it? i would like to jailbreak, unlock and activate it with O2 card as well as UNICEL.

Thank you

January 30, 2009 at 2:24 AM

never mind I was not holding down the hold/power long enough.

Thanks QuickPWN, you guys are life savers!

January 30, 2009 at 3:04 AM

Both Mac and Windows version of QuickPwn worked fine for my iPodTouch 1gn.

January 30, 2009 at 3:56 AM

ok well i'm getting a message when i try downloading both versions that they could not mount to my desktop b/c they are unrecognized...any suggestions?

January 30, 2009 at 3:58 AM

I have a 3G, I updated trough Itunes and I jailbreak it as normal, the cydia package its not showing me the packages, are the packages will be available soon or its something wrong with my phone. thanks for everything

January 30, 2009 at 4:05 AM

read the part about DFU mode..

January 30, 2009 at 4:13 AM

Your Message
Well I go through all the way with the Jailbreak to the point of where it says "QuikPwn is about to run on your iPhone 3g" and all it does is spin on the right side for over 30 minutes and has not done anything. I have tried twice now. Is this normal? This is for a At&t "locked" iPhone 3G with a Mac 10.5.6 OS. I did get a warning message on my iTunes that just before where it said "QuikPwn is about to run on your iPhone 3G" that it could not recognize it. BTW, I had jailbreaked this phone before so I have had some experience. Any suggestions?

January 30, 2009 at 5:00 AM

it gets to the ihaz success part and stays there. the screen on the iphone is blank and does nothing. I let it sit for 20 mins and nothing. I then have to press power button and turn back on. it turns on normal.

January 30, 2009 at 5:16 AM

can't download IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg because when I log in to the ADC site it said membership required.

January 30, 2009 at 5:24 AM

I had upgraded my Iphone through iTunes and i was still able to JB my phone with quickpwn with out any issues, You guys rock.

January 30, 2009 at 6:14 AM

I need to add more to the previous message to what is happening to me. I get this message every time that says "An iPod has been detected, but it could not be identified, Please disconnect and reconnect the iPod, then try again. An unknown error occured (2001)". I disconnected and reconnected several times (I also had to force quite QuickPwn to do this) and I still get the same message. I even did a full Restore on the 3G Phone and still I get this message. So I am stuck. Any suggestions???

January 30, 2009 at 6:15 AM

thank use for making a new jailbreak software but did you's not think of jailbreaking the ps3 yet it be realy cool if uses did reply back if you are going to jailbreak the ps3 or not please

January 30, 2009 at 6:48 AM

What exactly does the debug for OS X 10.5.6 do? (Other than make it possible for me to jailbreak my phone..) And is it possible to undo whatever that download does to my computer once I finish jailbreaking my phone? (I'm just a little skeptical because it says to only download it if you plan on developing applications, which I don't plan on...)

January 30, 2009 at 7:05 AM

There's a link to download QuickPwn 2.2.5 for mac and the PwnageTool 2.2.5 for mac. What's the difference?

January 30, 2009 at 7:09 AM

did you try downloading it with firefox? when i downloaded earlier versions (with safari), i got similar error messages regarding mounting issues. hope this helps.

January 30, 2009 at 7:22 AM

Installing IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg causes my macbook to Kernal Panic when anything USB gets plugged in..

Any idea how to uninstall the package?

January 30, 2009 at 7:23 AM

i'm getting the same message...i go through all the steps (successfully, or so it says), then am met with the same error message. i click okay to the message, then restart the iphone (holding power/home), but continue to hold power/home until it goes into recovery mode. then quickpwn wakes back up and warns me to do nothing...just wait for it to reboot with the pineapple, but after 20+ minutes, it simply reboots normally and sadly unpwned. help me please...

January 30, 2009 at 7:23 AM

This exact thing happens to me. Has anyone helped you with this?

David R.
January 30, 2009 at 7:25 AM

I installed the 10.5.5 IOUSBFamily package and it locked my Mac into a kernel panic cycle. I had to boot from backup and restore. Thanks for nothing, you dumb fucker.

January 30, 2009 at 7:28 AM

I am new to this board. Unfortunately I already upgraded iphone 3G through iturns to firmware 2.2.1. Is there a way I can roll back to 2.2?


January 30, 2009 at 8:19 AM

I also get the window that says "Quickpwn is about to run on your 3G iPhone" but nothing happens except the spinning object on the bottom right corner. I just updated my phone through iTunes to 2.2.1 using iMac 10.5.6 - Any help would be greatly appreciated.

January 30, 2009 at 8:20 AM

Windows version of QuickPWN is out there: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/
Does anyone have experience with it?

January 30, 2009 at 9:41 AM

So I downloaded the "IOUSBFamily Log release for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33" and was able to Jailbreak my phone. Thanks for that!
However, now if I try to plug in any USB device other than my iPhone, it causes some error and freezes my computer and says I have to restart it. Can someone help me with how to uninstall this so I won't have this problem any more?

January 30, 2009 at 10:27 AM

Hello , I own iPhone 2G with 1.1.1 that i dont know how it was unblocked, I live in mexico and i was able to use any sim around the world. Today after a couple of hours finally i could unblocked or jalibroke (dont know the difference) and everything works great with the phone EXCEPT IT DOESNT RECOGNIZE MY SIM, HEEELP , IM NEW ON THIS!!!!!!

January 30, 2009 at 4:05 PM

emmm why there is a version 2 for windows quickpwn? there was somthing wrong with the first version??

January 30, 2009 at 4:15 PM

I Have the same problem as "tat2me2" "after i complete all steps in QuickPWN and when it comes to the last step i get the window that says “Quickpwn is about to run on your 3G iPhone” but nothing happens except the spinning object on the bottom right corner. I just updated my phone through iTunes to 2.2.1 using my macbook pro 10.5.6 .. plzzzzzzz HELP

January 30, 2009 at 5:17 PM

So, is the last link the *official* windows download?

The subject of this post claims there is an official quickpwn for both windows/Mac, but the first sentence says the *official* windows version hasn't been released....
However, at the end of the page it says that the Windows link for Quickpwn version 2 is the official link...?

Is it official or not?

January 30, 2009 at 5:30 PM

So what is the recommendation for those of us that want to leave our baseband on the old version (still be able to unlock), but upgrade to the new firmware on Windows? Do we all have to borrow a Mac, make a custom IPSW, then transfer it to our own iTunes, install, and QuickPwn?

Will there ever be a release of PwnageTool for windows, or a version of QuickPwn that will create IPSWs (like WinPwn)?

January 30, 2009 at 5:36 PM

quickpwn for windows when i open it it says that file is invaild r corrupted?????????? y

Chris Tiong
January 30, 2009 at 6:47 PM

Hi There, is there any Pwnage tools for windows user to build custom firmware for 2.2.1 firmware?.
I would appreciate it. and thank you in advance.
Currently I'm having a 3g officially factory unlocked iphone.
I've use an unofficially unlock Quickpwn to jailbreak, It's work well. I need a bigger root partition now.

January 30, 2009 at 10:13 PM

Hi, if I have iPhone 3G originaly unlocked, must I custom firmware, or I can use normaly QuickPwn??

January 30, 2009 at 11:30 PM

version 1 was the unoffcial first release I believe...

January 30, 2009 at 11:41 PM

this jailbreak doesn't work properly for me :/
i followed it exacly and at the end jailbreak is finished, my iphone 3g doesn't reboot, i waited maybe 30 minutes and it only displays apple logo and vibrates twice every couple minutes.

January 30, 2009 at 11:41 PM


Hmm I can't see Cydia or Installer on my Springboard after jailbreaking... can somebody help me? :)

January 31, 2009 at 1:08 AM

Quickpwn for windows worked fine under Windows 7 beta build 7000...

January 31, 2009 at 1:21 AM

I really hope they hurry and come out with the ipod touch jail brake soon...

January 31, 2009 at 1:54 AM

Hi had the same problem with mine I just did a Archive and Install from the MAC OSX disc which takes your mac back to 10.5.5 depending on when you purchased it. I am now still trying to jailbreak my iphone but can't get it to go in dfu mode :(

January 31, 2009 at 2:00 AM

I have the same issue as above I get to the point of trying to enter the dfu mode in Pwnage and it keeps saying dfu mode failed. iTunes also reports there was an error. I'm running itunes 8.0.1 and Mac osx 10.5.5 anyone have any ideas? Am I not holding down the buttons correctly or long enough?


January 31, 2009 at 2:30 AM

K@@L Worked great!!
Had 2.1 upgraded Via ITines 8 to 2.2.1
Ran QuickPwn installed without a hitch,
in under 10 min.
Didnt even loose crack apps from 2.1.
AWSOME Job Guys!!!!!! Keep up the great work.

January 31, 2009 at 4:44 AM

Hurray...Success! After getting constant iTune (2001) errors, I finally got it to work by installing it through my G4 Powerbook laptop instead of my iMac desktop. I got this simple tip to switch computers through the Apple website as one of the options to combat these iPhone/iTouch installation errors. Life is good now!

You may want to mention that in order to avoid being stuck at the Apple boot logo after jailbreaking, you should backup all your purchases/apps/whatever (right click on iPod in iTunes, click "Backup") and then you should restore your device to a pristine state of firmware 2.2.1 (click on device in iTunes, select "Restore"). THEN Jailbreak it. If you just jailbreak your device when all your apps/songs/etc are still on it from before, it will freeze up. After the jailbreak of the pristine device, you should be able to restore your apps/songs in iTunes.

January 31, 2009 at 4:52 AM

Is it still possible to jailbreak it if I updated my fimware to 2.2.1 through iTunes?

January 31, 2009 at 7:08 AM

Can you tell me when the jailbreak for ipod touch 2gen is coming?
Will it take many months?
And what is redsnow? is it as safe as quickpwn?
Please answer.

January 31, 2009 at 8:28 AM

how do i get the expert mode for quickpw for windows to update the 2.2.1 on iphone

January 31, 2009 at 8:33 AM

Constant reboot even with QuickPwn-225-2. Tried two times...
Any ideas? Will it be fixed soon?

Having problems: Have a 3G on AT&T, I'm not trying to unlock, only jailbreak. Updated to 2.2.1 on iTunes first, had no problems with phone; jailbreak with Pwnage tool on Mac and cannot get reception after jailbreak. I get reception when I do a recovery from iTunes and un-jailbreak it. But no reception when I jailbreak. tried many different times, even on different computers. Help/

I installed the IOUSBfamily-315.4.1.pkg on my 10.5.6 iMac and now my thumb drive won't work in my USB drive. What gives? How do I reverse that installation?

January 31, 2009 at 3:57 PM

Same problem, it's been at the apple logo screen for three hours, ive restored once, then tried again. Windows Xp, itouch 1st gen.

January 31, 2009 at 5:50 PM

Hi,Dev Team.1st of all,I like to Thank You all for a job well done for the 2.2.5 break!But,I have a problem.i happened to upgrade my iPhone 3G to 2.2.1 with baseband 02.30.03,kindly advise me on how to go about unlocking the phone so that I can load YellowSnow and run it...Thanks!

January 31, 2009 at 6:12 PM

Worked like a charm! Thanks guys.

January 31, 2009 at 11:28 PM

The jailbreak for ipod touch 2nd gen will take as long as it will take. Don't ask. Probably months like you said. Redsn0w is currently highly experimental and your ipod won't be able to boot without the aid of a computer (tethered boot). I advise that you wait for quickpwn for ipod touch 2nd gen which will be safe and easy.

February 1, 2009 at 1:33 AM

dude, if u need to ask this, don't use expert mode LOL, it's not included, that's why it is called QuickPwn

Installing IOUSBfamily-315.4.1.pkg on my 10.5.6 iMac ruined my machine. I had to reinstall Leopard from scratch. Beware!

February 1, 2009 at 2:35 AM

I bought an iPhone 3G in Italy, so it's not locked. Running jailbreaked 2.2 now, and want to update, will it remain unlocked after an update with QuickPWN to 2.2.1, or will the firmware update lock it again? Thank you!

February 1, 2009 at 6:05 AM

can i restore my iphone after jailbreaking it.... like when it says setup ure iphone.. can i restore contacts and such or do i have to setup as new phone

February 1, 2009 at 6:30 AM

I think the app categories might be screwing things up a bit, for users that had Cydia in a categories created folder, now we can't see cydia and unsinstall categories to correct the issue. I see a few comments about not seeing Cydia on the screen and wondered if you had this in common with me.

I have jailbroken my iphone 3g in 2.2.1 from itunes and my iphone will not turn on. The iphone is constantly is showing the apple starting up logo. Please help!!!

February 1, 2009 at 8:03 AM

PLEASE HELP!!!!!I Currently have a first gen ipod touch running on 2.2.1. QuickPwn just yesterday came out with the official jailbreak for this on WindowsXP yesterday so I decided I would try jailbreaking for the first time. I went through the process and when it was done it said to wait for my ipod to reboot. Twelve hours later my ipod was still at the apple logo screen. So I went to DFU mode and restored. I tried again, same thing. One of the reasons I am jailbreaking is because I almost have nine full pages of apps so restoring takes FOREVER. I want it to work this time, what should I do?

P.S.- Does jailbreaking erase all of my saves on my apps????

hey guys u rock my world, lol, was really worried that i would'nt be able to re jailbreak my iphone, but you did it, thx so much, bet ya apple are cryin that a few amateur hackers wiped out their whole team of developers

quickpw tool for windows ???? anything yet?

February 1, 2009 at 9:21 AM

how mmuch longer for the touch 2g?

February 1, 2009 at 9:25 AM

Everytime I open up itunes, it says insert sim card in phone, so the iphone icon wont show up until I put in a card, then it displays invalid sim, so I am not able to update the firmware manually, i had to go thru the tabs above on itune to update. I accidently updated the phone thru itunes to 2.2.1. I would like to know how I can unlock and jailbreak the phone. I read the posts, but am not sure how to create a custom baseband, is it neccessary for unlock? Or can I run the quickpwn just as is?

Drk (required)
February 1, 2009 at 10:16 AM

I think alot of people here has updated to firmware 2.2.1 thru itunes already, can you post a solution in order to unlock the phone and jailbreak if you have already updated the baseband to the latest one thru itunes? I am not even able to navigate my phone because it prompts me for activation and to insert a sim card, I dont have a att sim card!

February 1, 2009 at 10:27 AM

I've downloaded the windows QuickPWN 2.2.5 and the SHA-1 sum doesn't match with the official sum released by the dev-team.

How's that?

I had the problem with the "IOUSBFamily Log release for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33" too. So I went back to the ADC site and then downloaded the one for 10.5.6, everything seems to work fine now.

February 1, 2009 at 11:06 AM

Thank you so much, you guys are the best. From now on, I'll be more careful to not just update my iTunes without thinking how it will affect my quickPwness. Thanks so much for your time and considerations for your fans. ^_^

February 1, 2009 at 11:25 AM

Official 2.2.1 Jailbreak for Windows is out now, it works, great. Thanks a lot to Development Team. You've done a great job. Appreciated.

February 1, 2009 at 11:34 AM

Well, really what it's happening is that it doesn't get fully downloaded from this link.

I've tried to download it from the links probided in the dev-team page and they seem to be ok, including the SHA1.

February 1, 2009 at 1:37 PM

i was trying the unnoficial windows quickpwn and my itouch gets into a sudden coma how can i fix it¿?

February 1, 2009 at 3:13 PM

I have the 2g iphone updated 2.2.1 on itunes then ran quickpwn.. now it says I have to activate!?!

February 1, 2009 at 3:26 PM

will there ever be a way to hack 2.2.1??

February 1, 2009 at 3:45 PM

I had the same problem running Mac 10.4 and iphone 2g. I turned off the lock out timer and restored my phone without the applications (so it was just a phone with contacts and calendar) then I ran the quickpwn and it worked and booted right up. I can't put a finger on which component is causing the freeze when the device boots the final time. All I know is doing these things made it work for me so it should be worth a shot.

February 1, 2009 at 3:50 PM

I downloaded both and the pwnagetool seemed a little more complicated than quickpwn and also offered an "expert" mode which I have no idea what it does. All I know is it failed at jailbreaking my phone so I had to use quickpwn 3 times before I got it to work. Kind of a pain in the ass.

February 1, 2009 at 3:57 PM

I stuck with the last step.quickpwn say'please wait for your device to reboot in its newly modified state'.I've been waiting for an hour but it seems nothing is happening.My 3 G shows the quickpwn logo & its vibrates every 3-5 minutes.I am using Windows.Can any one please help me.pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee

at the end of the process, the following error is showed "your device has connected in the wrong mode. this can be caused by incorrect following of the instructions , or a faulty USB connection. Please try again.
The iphone was perfect connected to the USB and i follow the instructions.

February 2, 2009 at 4:39 AM

So wait, everytime apple releases a firmware update, I need to update through itunes then jailbreak again? Is there anyway to update the firmware on PC without having to jailbreak a second time. I dont want to have to do this because I have many applications already installed from Cydia... I dont wanna have to reinstall them again...

February 2, 2009 at 6:37 AM

I JUST updated with iTunes from 2.1 to 2.2.1 and unlocked and jailbroke, but my iPhone 2G is STUCK on the BOOT LOGO. Is this common? What am i doing wrong?

mfdk (required)
February 2, 2009 at 8:12 AM

Well, there is no way to unlock the iPhone 3g using the firmware 2.2.1 through itunes. But if you have Mac OS X, then you can install Pwnage Tool and use a customized firmware to update your iPhone 3g and then jailbreak it.

Please post all 10 Points of the DFU Fix. If you don't reinstall the newest version again, you cannot plug in any UBS-Peripheral without crashing the OS.

Here is the COMPLETE Description:

1. You will need an account with ADC (Apple Developer Connection) this is free and takes a few minutes to sign up, you should read the terms and conditions carefully and you should only sign up if you are thinking of developing applications in the future - http://developer.apple.com/mac/
2. Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-315.4-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33” (yes, that is a “5” in 10.5.5 - this is a developer debug package of the USB kernel extension).
3. Unplug non-vital USB equipment, such as external DVD writers, USB scanners, USB mass storage devices, at the most leave a Keyboard and Mouse connected.
4. Install IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg from within the disk image
5. Reboot your system!
6. Perform necessary DFU activity with QuickPwn or PwnageTool.
7. Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-327.4.0-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.6 Build 9G55”
8. Intall IOUSBFamily-327.4.0.pkg from within the disk image
9. Reboot your system!
10. Reattach your USB peripherals.

To all iPhone 3G owners,who downloaded 2.2.1 thru iTunes with a Mac.You can only use Quickpwn 2.2.5 to jailbreak only,it will not unlock your phone,you baseband will still be locked by Apple.Cydia,Installer and other tools will not run smoothly like before.Do not try to attempt to download Pwnage tool 2.2.5 on your Mac to downgrade to baseband 02.28 as it will messup your Mac systems,that's why you all keep hearing that people have trouble with their USB connections n other errors popping up....so DO NOT TRY to use the Pwnage tool just yet.Think we will have to bare with the Original 2.2.1 for the time being.Until a fine tuned Quickpwn tool comes along.Hope the guys at Quickpwn,Dev Team,Poorlad can come up with a upgraded version soon....We support YOU guys!

February 5, 2009 at 6:38 AM

So, I updated my firmware to 2.2.1 via iTunes, and then jailbroke my phone via the newest QuickPwn. That worked as expected.

However, neither Cydia nor Installer can connect to remote hosts to download software. This is kinda the point of jailbreaking, no?

Also, Installer shows that I have installed all the packages I had installed previously on 2.2 (before iTunes update and latest jailbreak) but none of those icons are present on my phone.

February 5, 2009 at 8:58 AM

Use QickPWN to do the jailbreak process again, but this time make sure you leave iTunes open throughout the entire process. This worked on my 2G iPhone when it encountered the endless reboot problem. Works perfectly now!

February 5, 2009 at 11:27 AM

People, if your iPod or you iPhone or whatever keeps rebooting and is just staying at the boot logo, just wait at LEAST 3 hours, it will work, I had to wait about an hour and a half for mine.

February 5, 2009 at 12:27 PM

just updated my ipod touch to the new 2.2.1 uppgrade and my cydia application got removed. now im trying to reinstall it using the 2.2.5 quickpwn for mac but just as its about to install (after the process of turning off and rebooting) the ipod just stays off and doesnt allow the program to install. what do i do?

February 7, 2009 at 5:45 AM

Xiy -
You need to chill out.
You realize these people are working for FREE working their asses off developing a FREE program for your benefit and you're complaining about how long it's taking them.
If you're on such a tight schedule, why don't you get off your ass and program it yourself? Or better yet, send the developers a nice fat check to reward them for their efforts. I'm sure then they would be more than willing to bend over backwards just for you.

February 7, 2009 at 5:52 AM

If you've upgraded to 2.2.1 and tried jailbreaking with the latest QP only to have the continuously rebooting apple logo display:
I had this problem 3 times in a row before I got it to work on my 3g.

The fix for me was to do a full system restore to 2.2.1 via iTunes and then run QuickPwn BEFORE restoring from my backup. For some reason, performing the backup restore after the system restore and then trying to jailbreak causes the endless reboot every time, but doing it the other way worked the first time.

Hope this helps someone.

February 7, 2009 at 6:03 AM

Do you really have wait for hours after you jailbreak iPhone with QuickPWN for Windows on firmware 2.2.1?

I tried QuickPWN 2.2.5 for Windows on my 3G after I updated to 2.2.1 firmware and it kept on getting stuck on boot logo with accasional buzzing...

February 7, 2009 at 7:28 AM

So when I connected my jailbroken iPhone today, iTunes asked me if i wanted to upgrade to 2.2.1 - I originally said yes and the download started, after finding this site while the download was going on, I immediatly disconnected my phone - everything still works. My Question is - how do I prevent iTunes from installing the update next time I sync? I went into downloads & deleted the update file, but is this enough? I would still like to be able to sync my music. Also - does anyone have links to a tutorial that will explain how I can re-virginize the phone but keep my data?

February 7, 2009 at 8:42 AM

Don't understand how to jailbreak your itouch second generation ?

Lewis Davies
February 9, 2009 at 12:34 PM

Lewis here.
I updated my iphone 3g to 2.2.1. Then I jailbroke it using QUICKPWN 2.2.5. It went through the motions till the end.
But when it goes to reboot itself, It just stays stuck on the "APPLE" logo.
Also right in the beginning when it tells you to turn your phone off then hold the home and power button , etc. Itunes opens up saying its detected an iphone in recovery mode, and I should restore and update. I've tried it, but comes up with an error. And i've ignored it too. I still come to the same conclusion.

February 9, 2009 at 12:49 PM

I wasn't able to get into DFU mode properly on my mac but I followed this videos instructions rather than QuickPwns and it worked everytime I did it.


Enjoy ;-)

I downloaded the quickpwn and went through the whole process and when it says to wait until it boots up after it restarts, it doesn't do it. It just sits there with the apple logo. It doesn't pick up in itunes either. So I can't restore it or anything. How do I fix this?

February 11, 2009 at 4:43 PM

ok downloaded it and worked perfect for my iphone 3G. HOWEVER i cant no longer use my phone tab.

February 11, 2009 at 10:57 PM

Ursula or Samuelson, hear back on the problem? I had the same issue. How do you get past the logo on startup? Do you keep open the QuickPwn program while your waiting for it? How long's the wait?

I've got me an itouch 1st gen running the 2.2(5G77) firmware and I've been trying to jailbreak it for weeks now. All goes well with Quickpwn until I get to the very end of the process where it is supposed to reboot in it's new state. Thing is... it never does that. I get stuck with an apple logo with a black background on the screen and the device never reboots to the jailbroken state. I've checked all sorts of online forums about this and it appears to be a common problem. I was hoping that you would have the concrete solution since you guys are the developers and propagators of this jailbreaking software. Thanks in advance!

PS: I'm running all this from a Windows XP os.

If you are running into the problem with entering DFU mode in 10.5.6, here is a much easier fix. Simply use an external usb hub, and your iPhone will enter DFU mode on the first try! Enjoy.
