Earlier this morning I shared a step by step guid on how to Jailbreak and unlock iphone3GS using Pwnage tool 3.1.3 but that was for Mac only as Pwnage Tool doesn’t work on Windows and neither iPhone Dev team have released redsn0w which is a jailbreaking tool for Windows.
However, I would like to share a guide on how to jailbreak iphone 3Gs 3.1 firmware on Windows using Custom Firmware (iPhone2,1_3.1_7C144_Custom_Restore).
How to Jailbreak iPhone 3G Firmware 3.1
- First Download the following links of custom iPhone 3.1 Firmware
- Now join all the downloaded parts using HJSplit and you will get one archive, uncompress that archive and it contains IPSW file of firmware 3.1
