    I just want to verify a few things before attempting this JailBreak....

    iPhone 3G, 3.1(7C144), 8GB, Modem FW 05.11.07


    I have a AT&T account with a NON iPhone DATA Plan.
    Once I jailbreak it will it want me activate it via iTunes?
    or will it take my AT&T sim and let me enter the springboard and menus???

    I plan on using this file to Jailbreak: iPhone1,2_3.1_7C144_Custom_Restore_WO_ACT (251mb)

    Thanks.
    I do not know and i am sorry i cant answer for you that is the firmware i used and i have data package, but doing the jb it didnt need data to do anyhting just i-tunes

    im going to be posting a vid on teathering with 3.1 soon lilbush81 at you tube

    This is HOW TO JAILBREAK iPhone 3G 3.1 on windows! (XP,VISTA,7)

    **WARNING**WARNING**WARNING**
    Unless you aren't worried about potentially upgrading your baseband, I would advise you not to try this tutorial until there is an Unlock method available for the 3.1 Firmware. If you will never need your iphone unlocked then it is perfectly fine to use this jailbreak method.

    Before you start you need to have the following:
    1. a copy of itunes 8.2 if you don't already have it installed. (download it here Itunes 8.2 Link
    2. a copy of custom firmware 3.1 I cannot tell you how to acquire this.
    3. a copy of Redsnow 0.8 (download it here Redsnow 0.8 Link
    4. a copy of the OFFICIAL 3.0 firmware

    *If you currently have your iphone jailbroken at the 3.0 level, put your phone in RECOVERY Mode (not DFU) and use steps 1,2,3,14 & 15

    **If you currently have your iphone at an OFFICIAL 3.1 level, complete all of the steps.


    Step 01: If you have Itunes 9 installed then uninstall it.

    Step 02: Install Itunes 8.2

    Step 03: Run Itunes 8.2

    Step 04: if you get an "itunes library.itl" error then delete or move it from your itunes folder in "my music"

    Step 05: Once you have iTunes 8.2 running, put your phone into DFU mode

    Step 06: click "ok" when itunes tells you it detects your phone in recovery mode

    Step 07: once your phone is in DFU mode, hold your shift key and click restore in itunes

    Step 08: a window will open and you will now locate the official 3.0 firmware file and select it

    Step 09: itunes will now install the official 3.0 firmware onto the phone

    Step 10: at the end of this process you will likely get a error 1015 or something like that. ignore the error by clicking ok and your iphone should be showing the usb and itunes logo at this point.

    Step 11: Now open up Redsnow 0.8

    Step 12: Browse for the 3.0 official firmware and follow the directions that the software gives to jailbreak the iphone. during the jailbreak process for 3.0, you will notice that it seems to freeze at the "installing activation bundles" part. Don't worry, it is not frozen. Just give it a little while and it will finish.

    Step 13: At this point your phone might have the USB and Itunes image back on it. This is fine. Open iTunes back up and you will probably be greeted with the "itunes detects your phone in recovery mode". Click OK.
    DO NOT PUT THE IPHONE IN "DFU" MODE AT THIS POINT. Leave it in "Recovery Mode". Leave it as it is.

    Step 14: Once again, shift click the itunes restore button and select the 3.1 custom firmware.

    Step 15: THAT'S IT! Let it load the 3.1 custom firmware and you are set!

    I have done this on 3 3G iPhones and can confirm that this process absolutely works. I hope this helps all of you that have been waiting on a windows version of redsnow that jailbreaks 3.1. This process may take more time but it will work.

    Just to clarify a few steps in this process...

    If you are on official 3.1 firmware, you have to downgrade to a jailbroken 3.0 firmware and have iTunes 8.2 installed in order to restore the CUSTOM 3.1 firmware. If you are already on a 3.0 jailbroken firmware then just make sure you have iTunes 8.2 installed because itunes 9 will give you error 16xx messages when you do a restore for CUSTOM 3.1 firmware.

    I noticed that the majority of my steps look as though this is just to jailbreak to 3.0 SO i just wanted to make it clear that this is actually instructions to jailbreak 3.1
    you rock!!!! - Thanks Thanks Thanks - by the way if you are an AT&T user the iPhone1,2_3.1_7C144_Custom_Restore_WO_ACT (251mb) - is the one to use for step 14

    had the same issues for 2 days - problem is with iTunes 8.2.1 - and yes I knkow why you went with iTunes 8.2.1 - cause you are running a vista x64 ---- YOU GOTTA GO CAVEMAN TECH - get on another computer that will allow you to DOWNGRADE to iTunes 8.0 - use the custstom iPhone 3.1 firmware that has the "_Wo_ACT" in the file name (this is for AT&T users) and follow the instructions - Worked for me

    LilBush - Thanks for the encouragement via email tonight

    If someone could PM me the iPhone1,2_3.1_7C144_Custom_Restore_WO_ACT file, it would be most appreciated. I am having a terrible time DLing the correct file (many errors so far,which I think are due to the wrong file being used.)

    Thanks!

    I'll tell you what, I followed these directions twice before I realized I was still using redsn0w 0.7.2... kept getting errors on the 3.1 update, couldn't get out of recovery mode, was getting so angry - until I figured out I was running the older version. After I got that all straightened out, it worked perfectly.
    Might want to add that running redsn0w .8 gives you the little running pineapple - i was getting a hard drive icon saying "downloading latest jailbreak..." (or something along those lines).

    Thanks for the walkthrough!

    Creasy, thanks a ton.

    One last question, when I'm finished, I won't have any of my contacts, etc. on my phone. Is it ok to restore so that I get all this info back, or will that mess up the jailbreak or my AT&T service in any way?

    Thanks again, this thread has been extremely helpful!

    Yes its just fine to restore, the restore doesnt mess with the JB ar all. Be sure to re-install itunes 9.x as well so you recieve the carrier update that enable MMS...
