Update: Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2 with blackra1n RC3 for 05.11.07 baseband also

Apple released the iPhone software update – OS 3.1.2 few days back and the latest firmware update contains a baseband firmware update 5.11.04 like firmware 3.1 and it’s is not compatible with Ultrasn0w. Unlock baseband 5.11.04 cannot be done with any utility as such. But thankfully, the iPhone Dev team has released the PwnageTool program that let’s you update your main firmware without touching your baseband firmware.

Here is a simple to follow guide which shows you how to upgrade and unlock your iPhone 3G from Firmware 3.0 to Firmware 3.1 without upgrading your baseband. All you have to do is download a custom firmware, this custom firmware is created with Dev team Pwnage Tool that strips out the baseband update from the upgrade.

Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 2G 3G 3GS on OS 3.1 Windows

1. Download the custom firmware and place to your desktop. These custom firmware are Jailbreaked and contains Cydia for using the full potential of jailbreaking.

2. Put your iPhone in Recovery mode by following instructions –
a) Turn the device completely off and disconnect it from cable/dock.
b) Hold down the home button.
c) While holding down the home button connect to a computer with a cable (easiest) or dock.
d) Keep holding down the home button until you see a connect-to-iTunes
screen You are now in recovery mode.

3. Launch iTunes, hold the shift key and then hit Restore button. For Mac hold Option key on your Mac and then hit the restore button. Once the upgrade is finished you haven’t need to jailbreak it again since it was already jailbroken.

Note: This is a tested procedure by many iPhone users all over the world but we are not responsible for any damage. Do this at your own risk. As a matter of fact, we at TechPP discourage the users from jailbreaking their phones.

  8. Hello guys……

    I believe that the WIFI problem>(it does not show/find any wireless networks around, it keeps Cyrcling telling me>choose a network….if i try to manually add a network when i press the Join button it says>cannot scan for networks…) IS caused by blacksn0w(blackra1n RC3)……I did everything that they say on the web and still no WIFI for me….The only thing left for me is to just buy a At&t sim card and see if the WIFI works without jailbreaking>(using blacksn0w>(blackra1n RC3))……..If anyone had this WIFI problem after jailbreaking using blacksn0w and tried it with a AT&T sim card after and now have WIFI let me know please…..My WIFI was working perfectly before upgrading to FW v3.1.2 and jailbreaking……My Iphone is a 2G and with firmware v3.1.2……pls if someone know something out of the ordinary to fix this WIFI problem let me know……

    My thanks go to Geohot because without blacksn0w I wasn’t able to use my iPhone 2G for anything…..now I can play music/videos view photos and even calling with another sim card that isn’t AT&T of course>(I do not know how that happened but my iPhone 2G is unlocked without using WIFI to unlock it the only problem is THE WIFI that is not working at all)I think it is because I have a 2G iPhone that it unlocked without using WIFI to unlock>(I do not know)……

    I repeat If someone know anything to fix this iPhone 2G WIFI problem….reply here please…THX

  10. First of all this is a great site. I recently got a iphone 3gs and have been having some issues jailbreaking it. The following is a list of equipment ive been using:
    1 Iphone 3gs
    1 Macbook pro w/ the correct ipsw, itunes, and pwnage tool
    Now I cant seem to jail break it. When ever i try i get the one of the following error codes: 6, 1604, 1600, 2000, 2004. To remedy the issues ive tried resetting my laptop and ive also tried the blackra1n jailbreaking tool. None have worked thus far. In addition i followed the steps outlined in the guide exactly to no avail. I was wondering if someone could give me a hand with this. Thanks.

    Same specs, same problem…

    Seems we aint the only ones.

  14. The Pwnage tool is really easy to use. I was able to successfully upgrade my 2G from 2.2.1 to 3.1.2 using Pwnage tool 3.1.4. I only used the simple mode interface. Some sites say one should enter DFU/recovery mode before restoring the iphone. Yet, when I tried doing that, I received a 1600 error. So I tried restoring again, this time, not in DFU mode, and it worked out fine. Maybe because my iphone was jailbroken before by the same tool. I don’t know if this will also work for first time jailbreakers.


  15. PLEASE NOTE ABOVE POST, has wrong email add,Please please will someone help me, I am at my wits end , I finally took the decision to jailbreak, even with a year still to run on my contract, just as i was about to use blackra1n I noticed that i would loose all installed software, I wish to keep this software,and am at a loss where to look as there is so many posts on google saying do this do that. Do i use pawnage ? will this let me keep my software ? How safe is this ? and a link to help me set it up would be so helpfull. also do i need to uninstall itunes, and replace with cydia. As you can see i am not the most tech savvy when it come to this. All help would be gratefully apreciated
