    I reallllllyyy don't wanna download it through itunes. I have a 2G iphone and I'm gonna jailbreak it with Redsnow 7.1 on Windows Vista. Can I update it through itunes by using clicking SHIFT+restore and use the firmware I downloaded or do I absolutely have to download it from itunes and update it first. Right now I'm on 2.2.

    Need an answer asap, thanks!
    Simplicity is an amazing thing.

    download and update on itunes then jailbreak with redsn0w.

    i dont think there is any other way, because no one has worked out how itunes unpacks the firmware on to the phone.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    Otherwise, look on the net for a custom firmware that was built using pwnage tool. This is what I did for my 2G. All you have to do once you have the firmware is to click Shift+restore and find the custom firmware. If you need the site for the file, write to me @ [email protected]
