How To: iPhone Jailbreaking 3.1
Does anyone know when the How To's for Jailbreaking will be updated for 3.1?
I am trying to find out how to Jailbreak, my iPhone 3G using Windows. Even the Dev site doesn't talk about how to jailbreak 3.1 under windows. when I look at "QuickPwn Release Info" or "redsn0w.com", they are old information. They do not talk about jailbreaking 3.1.
From what I understand, those are the only 2 s/w I can use to Jailbreak under Windows.
Am I correct?

sucks if you just bought your iPhone and 3.1 came pre-installed. glad i got my 3GS when 3.0 was still on it. i was able to use redsn0w to JB running 3.0.1 and haven't looked back since.
there are a few threads here on TiPb (i believe) and on other websites that discuss how to downgrade from 3.1 to 3.0.1 OS for the sake of JB, but i have no links to give you. sry
I have still on 3.0 I won't upgrade to 3.1 until there IS a Jailbreak under Windows. That was y I enquired. Thought i missed something.
I guess I'll have to live with 3.0 until they have a Windows version.

If you wait a day or two, Geohot will e releasing a Windows tool that can jailbreak ANY version of the OS, including the newly released 3.1.2 in less than 10 seconds and 5 clicks.
No "putting your phone into restore or DFU mode", nothing. Just Clio a button, wait 10 seconds, and you're done.
All hail the king!

Damn that almost sounds too good to be true. I'm hoping beyond hope that it is true because man o man would I jump on that bandwagon so fast.
If someone on a Mac uses pwnage tool to create a custom ipsw, or however it's spelled, can't a windows user restore to that file in iTunes?

Yes, the Windows users can restore to the ipsw created by a Mac using Pwnage Tool.
Also - trust me, it's true about the 1-click jailbreak. That's EXACTLY what purplera1n, Geohot's other 3G[s] jailbreak tool was like. Connect it, click, wait 15 seconds, and voilą, there you go.

3.1 3GS Jailbreak Woes
Hi Everyone. Has anyone that has done the windows workaround (restoring to a customer 3.1 file generated with a mac) having trouble connecting to the internet on their device? I am getting "unable to activate cellular data network." I was originally getting this message when I updated to 3.0; however, I haven't had a problem since installing the custom APN settings from unlockit.co.nz. Even after doing the workaround to get 3.1 jailbroken on a 3GS with windows, I wasn't having this issue...at least not until about an hour ago. I upgraded to a customer 3.1 firmware about 4 days ago. I have revisted that site (Unlockit.co.nz) and reinstalled the file again but no luck. Any tips?
