Jailbreaking and unlocking iPhone 3G


My friend VM successfully 'unbricked' his iPhone since the new unlock and OS3 versions are out. Heres a summary of what he did.

1. download iTunes version 8.2
2. update OS3
3. download redsn0w ver. 0.7.2 MAC [link] Windows [link]
follow the instructions on screen
4. if your phone is the older generation, redsn0w will jailbreak it and unlock it
if its a 3G iphone it will only jailbreak it
5. unlock using Cydia , add repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia or icy
6. search ultrasn0w in Cydia and install
7. reboot iPhone
