When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the technical bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the software, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Technology and of Technology's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all iPhones are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Dev teams are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the served, — That whenever any Form of Terms of Service becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Software, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Terms of Service long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Terms of Service, and to provide new Software for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these early Adopters; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Software. The history of the present King of Cupertino is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these Devices. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Update 4: This tutorial works for OS 3.0.1 - First upgrade to 3.0.1 - then follow the tutorial below.  (8/2/09)

Update 3: Please Please Please listen to Episode 87 before emailing me questions.  Any questions emailed that I covered the answer on 87 will be read on a future episode where I will then make fun of you and call you all kinds of bad names - plus I will find those embarasing pictures of you from spring break and put them in as the album art.  But seriously - please listen to Episode 87 before emailing me.

Update 2: 7/9/09 - Added link to firmware for iPod Touch owners

Update 1: 7/7/09 - Redsn0w v 0.8.0 - iPhone 3GS now supported - links below updated.


There are some very good articles on how to jailbreak the iPhone but many miss a couple of steps up front that new jailbreakers need to know.  And then more importantly what to do when the jailbreak is complete - We will try to cover those two items here.

NOTE: Do not try to jailbreak if you don't like when things go to (expletive). If you need your phone for your business and being without it for any period of time will cause you to loose your job - stop now.  If you get mad at your significant other at how they fold towels or put the toilet paper on a roll - Jailbreaking is probably not for your personality.  Sometimes things break and your phone will likely crash more often then if it was not jailbroken.  Listen to Ep. 87 for more info.


1. First you need to download the software.  Make sure to download to your desktop.  Download Redsn0w per the links below:


Redsn0w - v. 0.7.2 (For iPhone 3G and Original iPhone)

Windows (here)

Mac OS X (here) 


Redsn0w - v. 0.8.0 (For iPhone 3G, 3GS, Original iPhone and iPod Touch 1G & 2G)

Windows (here)

Mac OS X (here)


Then Un-Zip the files once on your desktop.

2. You need to make sure your browser is set up such that it will not automatically open a file when downloaded.  In safari you need to go into preferences and unselect the check box next to "Open 'safe' files after downloading.."  See pic below - make sure that box is NOT selected.




3. Download the 3.0 firmware for the iPhone.  This will download as a zipped file make sure you do NOT unzip it.  If you unzip it nothing will work. To download the iPhone OS 3.0 firmware go to these links.

Original iPhone

iPhone 3G

iPhone 3GS

Link to site for iPod Touch Firmware - get the 3.0 version

4. Once you have downloaded the firmware to your desktop there will be a .zip extension at the end of the filename - you need to just delete that from the file name such that it ends in .ipsw (see pic below). Select "Use .ipsw"



5. Open up Redsn0w and then follow the on screen directions.  For a step by step on this part go to the following tutorial on iPhone-Hacks.com and look from step 3 on - when done come back here for more info.

VERY IMPORTANT - Do NOT select "Icy" - Just select "Cydia".  If you select Icy and Cydia to be installed - Cydia will not work. 


Ok you are back and your phone should be jailbroken now. So what do you do next?  Well first thing is to find the Cydia App on your iPhone.  It is brown with a white circle in it and says "Cydia" underneath.  See the image below.



Tap to open it.  The program will do some maintenance the first time you open it. 



Next you will be asked "Who Are You?"  If you are reading this article - then you are "User (Graphical Only)" - select that option. 



Then you will see a screen for "Essential Upgrade"  At this point select "Complete Upgrade"



If Cydia does not finish the update and you get an error message (see below) You may not have paid attention in step 5 above and installed Icy - check to see if Icy was installed as well.  If so then you need to restore the iPhone, using the standard factory fresh restore from iTunes, and start over.  Again listen to Ep. 87 and look for additional links in the show notes of that episode. 



This above is NOT what you want to see - if you do - then your choices are to jailbreak with the Pawnage Tool (Mac OS X users) or to try restoring from scratch and trying to jailbreak all over again with Redsn0w.  Here is the link to that tutorial - Mac OS X only

What you want to see is the following:



Please note sometimes tapping close Cydia Restart - will hang up and you will need to restart the iPhone.  Remember one of the down sides to jailbreaking is you will get more hangups and crashes.  Once you get back to the home screens - find Cydia and open it again.



Per the screen - Welcome to Cydia.  Tap on "Sections" in the bottom row.



Then scroll down to "Tweaks" and select it.



Scroll down to "Five Icon Dock" and select it.



In the upper right tap "Install"



Then tap "Confirm in the upper right.  When it is done you should be back to your home page.  If it hangs up after the install - remember to restart the phone by holding the Power and Home buttons together.'

Next select one of your apps and drag it into the bottom dock - you should now be able to place 5 items in the bottom dock and you have your first jailbreak app working.
