HOW TO: Jailbreak iPhone 3G Running iOS 4.1 With Custom Unofficial PwnageTool Bundle [video]

A week ago we showed you how to jailbreak an iPhone 3G running iOS 4.1, and today it’s time to see how to jailbreak an iPhone 3G running iOS 4.1 using the same method – unofficial PwnageTool bundle.

NOTE: this is an unofficial method, and we cannot confirm if this will preserve your baseband. Use it at your own risk…

NOTE: this works 100%, but if you really really depend on your iPhone ( jailbreak and/or unlock ) you better wait for an official release…

  • iOS 4.1 bundle
  • stock iOS 4.1 firmware for iPhone 3G
  • iTunes 10

How To:

1. Download everything on your desktop and extract archives

2. Right click on and ‘Show Package Contents’
