How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using PwnageTool (Mac)Posted by admin
This tutorial will show you how to jailbreak and unlock your 2G iPhone on the 3.1.3 iPhone firmware.
You can find the 3G version of this tutorial: here.
Alright, first make a folder on the desktop. In it, you will need a couple of things. The two bootloader files:
- BL 3.9
- BL 4.6
Pwnage 3.1.5, found here.
You will also need the 3.1.3 iPhone firmware.
3.1.3 (2G): iPhone1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw
When downloading the IPSW file, it is best to download it with Firefox!
You will be brought to the “Browse for IPSW” page. On my laptop, it automatically found the IPSW. If PwnageTool doesn’t automatically find the ipsw file you can click Browse for IPSW… button.
***If the Enable Baseband checkbox is not greyed out, checkmark it. This will allow the unlock to occur!***
***For the 3.0 firmware you may have to increase the size of your root partition slightly for the IPSW build to be successful. 590MB worked just fine for me***
In the Bootneuter settings, click Neuter bootloader, Unlock baseband, and Auto-Delete BootNeuter.app. It is not necessary to upgrade the bootloader unless you are really feeling the need to be on 4.6. Click the blue arrow button to continue.
Click to select the Download packages tab. Then click the Refresh button to display all the available packages. Double clicking the package you want will download it and make it available in the Select Packages tab.
Click the blue arrow button to continue.
Select the file in the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click the Open button.
***: After loading the 4.6 BL you may be asked if you’re a legit user. If you legally have ATT or an iPhone plan in a different country, clicking yes will not unlock the iPhone and activate it as your legal plan already activates it and there is no need for an unlock. However if you wish to keep the iPhone unlocked, when asked if you’re a legit iPhone user, click no
You will be asked to turn off the device. Make sure it is connected to the USB port.
Be ready to follow directions now. It will ask you to hold the home button and the power button for 10 seconds. Then, you will have to release the power button and hold the home button for 10 seconds to enter DFU.
Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop using the dialog window that appears. Select the custom IPSW that was created (iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw_Custom_Restore.ipsw) and click the Open button.
Once the restore has completed, it will restart your iPhone. The phone will then launch BootNeuter.app to unlock your device.
Please allow 5 minutes for this to complete. Your iPhone will restart once completed.
