I suggest you read through the following carefully before jailbreaking iPhone 3G on Windows for 2.2 firmware. By the time I wrote this post, QuickPwn is the only tool available on Windows to jailbreak iPhone 3G. But you must aware several notice as follow before you consider to use it to jailbreak.

The current version of QuickPwn and PwnageTool can jailbreak iPhone 3G but the jailbreak may potentially impact any future unlock of iPhone 3G. May be you should take look quote from my previous post about jailbreaking iPhone 3G.

The new version of QuickPwn or PwnageTool will NOT unlock your iPhone 3G. iPhone Dev Team is still in process to develop a solution for unlock. And, if you’re using a locked version iPhone 3G and want to unlock in future, please do NOT use QuickPwn and do not use the official IPSW or iTunes update process.

In other words, if you’re using iPhone 3G, the only way to have a Safe Jailbreak is to use PwnageTool (Mac only). By using QuickPwn to jailbreak iPhone 3G, you’ll not be able to unlock your iPhone 3G in future, even iPhone Dev Team develops the solution.

Here are the rules:

  • For those who are using an iPhone 3G which is locked to a particular carrier and you want to have it unlock in future. Please DO NOT USE QuickPwn to jailbreak. If you really have certain need to jailbreak, please use PwnageTool to jailbreak.
  • For those who have an unlocked iPhone 3G. You iPhone 3G is already unlocked, you are free to use QuickPwn to jailbreak your iPhone.
  • You own a locked version of iPhone 3G but you’re care about the unlock in future. You can go ahead and proceed to jailbreak.
  • And, for those who are using some SIM-card based solutions to unlock iPhone 3G (e.g. TurboSIM), please hold off the jailbreak. There are issues reported by other readers that the iPhone is locked again after upgrade.
