I’m really hoping that the new firmware is released in just a few days at the WWDC event. Until then, I’m going to jailbreak my iPhone again. I’m currently on the newest firmware, 3.0 Beta 5. QuickPWN is able to jailbreak it so, here we go:
I always sync my iPhone before jailbreaking. That way, in case there is a problem, I can always go back to the way my iPhone was before.
Now that everything is ready, it’s time to run QuickPWN. QuickPWN only works on PCs. There is no Mac version at this time. Also, make sure to use only your USB cord. I’ve had problems jailbreaking when using a dock.
After connecting your iPhone, you will need to browse for the firmware. You are looking for this file: iPhone1,2_3.0_7A312g_Restore.ipsw
Select Operation Settings
Here you can select if you want to install
Icy Cydia (menu says Icy, but after you’re done, you’ll have Cydia) change your boot logo, and activate your iPhone. You definitely want Cydia. It lets you install apps, hacks and mods on your iPhone. You can change the boot logo if you’d like, but I think all it does is change the Apple logo to a pineapple logo. I’d rather not, so I unchecked this. I don’t think you can pick your own boot logo with this version like in others. Last, activation. If you are an A&T customer, you do not want to activate though QuickPWN. iTunes has already done this. If you aren’t, then choose activate. This let’s you use the iPhone without service like an iPod Touch.
The iPhone now needs to be put into recovery mode to run the jailbreak. Follow the onscreen instructions. You will have to hold down the home button, then also the lock/power button, then let go of just the lock/power button. See the onscreen instructions for exact info.
Now you just wait why the app does it’s work. Soon you will have a jailbroken iPhone with
Icy Cydia :)
Cydia, not Icy
After the jailbreak, you’ll notice we now have Cydia and a web link to QuickPWN’s blog. Former jailbreaks for 3.0 included Icy, but this one has Cydia. Be careful, some apps don’t work with 3.0 yet. We’ll let you know what does and doesn’t…
Note: My Cydia doesn’t have an icon, it’s just blank. How about yours? (after a respring, it’s just fine)
