Jailbreak iPhone v2.1 (the Hard way)

Posted on Saturday September 13th, 2008 / 16:01

Η Dev Team δεν έχει δώσει ακόμη κάποιο update του QuickPwn μέσω του οποίου να επιτυγχάνεται το Jailbreak της iPhone v2.1, ωστόσο ο τρόπος υπάρχει – αν και απαιτεί αρκετά βήματα. Εν αναμονή λοιπόν της απάντησης της Dev Team και για όσους βιάζονται να κάνουν Jailbreak την iPhone v2.1 σας παρουσιάζουμε το παρακάτω Tutorial:

This is not the easiest guide, but it is for expert users and early adopters that have a 3g and Windows. The guide is courtesy of Geeb. This guide is for contract carrier subscribers only. If you are unlocking your 2g, wait for another method.

Update: I wrote a quick app and added it to Cydia to solve the icons not showing up after Cydia issue.

Update 2: Cydia is fixed. If you installed CacheDel, uninstall it and upgrade Cydia. I am removing step 17 from this guide.

Step 1) Download the 2.1  iPhone 3G firmware or 1st gen iPhone firmware (link)

Step 2) Install iTunes 8.

Step 3) Update the iPhone with iTunes and make sure it is activated!

Step 4) Uninstall iTunes v8

Step 5) Uninstall Apple Mobile Device Support (From Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel)

Step 6) Install iTunes v7.7.

Step 7) Download QuickPwn with the correct 2.1 bundle inside it (link)

Step 8 Run QuickPwn, select your iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw or iPhone1,1_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw from step 1.

Step 9) You can select Cydia and Installer and logos if you wish (make sure you select Cydia).

Step 10) When it is finished the iPhone will Reboot…Cydia and Installer will NOT be visible

Step 11) Download TotalCommander and t-pot addon

Step 12) Install TotalCommander and in the left pane navigate to T-PoT.1.1.zip and click on it. It will install t-pot automatically.

Step 13) Download the mobileinstallation patch

Step 14) Use Totalcommander to install patched mobileinstallation to /System/Library/PrivateFrameWorks/MobileInstallation.framework. Click on the dropdown box [-\-] top left and select network neighborhood then t-pot. Remember to back up your original mobileinstallation first!

Step 15) Still in TotalCommander delete /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist

Step 16) Reboot the phone and all is good!

Thanks to Geeb and the #xpwn crew…
