I find that you have to just keep trying the following sequences to get it to DFU mode
connect the iphone to your pc/mac
turn it off
press and hold the power button for 10 sec
get ready to press the home button while holding the power button
press the home button while holding the power for 10 sec's
let go the power button and hold the home button for 10 seconds.
if it still doesn't go to DFU keep repeating the above steps until it does.

How to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 all iDevices: iPhone 4/3GS/3G, iPod Touch, iPad &...


This will guide you on using greenpois0n RC6.1 to jailbreak your iDevice with iOS 4.2.1:
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPad
The jailbreak will be untethered, meaning you don't have to worry about rebooting your iDevice.
WARNING!: This is NOT recommended for iPhone 3G.

WARNING!: This will NOT guide you on unlocking the iPhone. If you're looking for unlock, CLICK HERE.

You will only need greenpois0n RC6.1 for this jailbreak. Download links below: Update iTunes to 10.2.1 for best results.

Procedure:
  1. Plug your iDevice to your computerkid_ant_10.png
  2. Open iTunes & prepare to put your iDevice to DFU modekid_ant_10.png
  3. DFU Mode: Press and hold both POWER and HOME buttons for EXACTLY 10 secondskid_ant_10.png
  4. DFU Mode: Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button for another 15 to 20 secondskid_ant_10.png
  5. You can release the HOME button once your computer beeps like a USB device has been connected OR once iTunes alerts you that it has detected an iDevice in recovery mode, which looks like this:kid_ant_10.pngkid_ant_76.jpgkid_ant_10.pngkid_ant_77.jpgkid_ant_10.pngClick on image to view larger.kid_ant_10.png

  9. Click Jailbreakkid_ant_10.pngkid_ant_74.jpgkid_ant_10.png Note that you don't have to follow the DFU directions anymore because you did it already in steps 3 to 5 (read again if necessary)kid_ant_10.pngkid_ant_12.png
The rest of the process will take place on your iDevice. All you need to do is wait and keep it plugged in your computer. DO NOT INTERRUPT!

How to unlock iPhone using PwnageTool or redsn0w + ultrasn0w combination


This will guide you on activating, jailbreaking and unlocking your iDevice & thus will be of 2 parts: Part 1 - Jailbreak with redsn0w; & Part 2 Unlocking with ultrasn0w.

Hardware compatibility:
  1. UNTETHERED JAILBREAK - iOS 4.2.1, 4.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.1 and 4.0
    • iPhone 3G
    • iPhone 3GS old bootrom
    • iPod touch 2G non-MC model kid_ant_5.png
  2. TETHERED JAILBREAK (?) - iOS 4.2.1 ONLY - you can use either greenpois0n or sn0wbreeze for untethered jailbreak, for these iDevices:
    • iPhone 3GS new bootrom
    • iPhone 4
    • iPod touch 2G MC model
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPad kid_ant_5.png
  3. UNLOCK - iOS 3.0 up to 4.2.1
    • iPhone 3G
    • iPhone 3GS old bootromkid_ant_5.png
  4. UNLOCK - iOS 3.0 up to 4.0.2 ONLY
    • iPhone 3GS new bootrom
    • iPhone 4
Not sure if your iPhone 3GS has old or new bootrom? CLICK HERE. Or if your iPod touch is MC or non-MC? CLICK HERE.

Compatible basebands (BB) for ultrasn0w 1.2.2:
  • 06.15.00 - iOS 3.2.2 from iPad (read further for details)
  • 05.13.04 / 01.59.00 - iOS 4.0.2, 4.0.1 & 4.0
  • 05.12.01 - iOS 3.1.3
  • 05.11.07 - iOS 3.1 & 3.1.2
  • 04.26.08 - iOS 3.0
Notice that BB 05.14.02 & 05.15.04 are NOT part of the list. You need to update these BB to 06.15.00 for ultrasn0w unlock to work. Read further for more info.

However, if your BB is 05.13.04 or lower, you can proceed with jailbreaking but make sure you DO NOT INSTALL THE IPAD BASEBAND.

WARNING: Read the following consequences of updating BB to 06.15.00:
  1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, & there's no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You'll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way. kid_ant_5.png
  2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won't be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn't update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway). kid_ant_5.png
  3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won't ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail). You'll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you're unlocker you should already be doing that).
DO NOT PROCEED if you don't agree.

What you need: NOTE: Download iPad's 3.2.2 IPSW ONLY if you'll use PwnageTool. Also, download ONLY the IPSW for your current iOS version. CLICK HERE if you have no idea what version is installed on your iDevice, especially if it's currently disabled.

For jailbreaking other iOS versions like 4.3.2, use other versions of redsn0w. CLICK HERE to see the list of all redsn0w versions.

Procedures:

PART 1 - JAILBREAKING with redsn0w (all iDevices):
  1. Connect your iDevice to the computer, run redsn0w & click Browse kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_57.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  2. Locate IPSW for your current iOS, select it & click Open kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_58.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  3. Wait until it say IPSW successfully identified. Click Next kid_ant_5.png
  4. If you plan to unlock your iPhone 3G / 3GS old bootrom, you need to check Install iPad baseband to update BB to 06.15.00 kid_ant_5.pngClick Yes if you're OK with these consequences:kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_60.jpgkid_ant_5.pngAgain, you only need this option if your BB is either 05.14.02 or 05.15.04. This will result to updating your BB to 06.15.00 which can be unlocked using ultrasn0w. kid_ant_5.pngAlso, if your BB is 05.13.04 or lower, this jailbreak will still work for your iPhone but make sure you DO NOT INSTALL THE IPAD BB! You don't need it! kid_ant_5.pngFor iPod touch users, the BB thing does not apply for you. so you have nothing to worry about.kid_ant_5.png
  5. Choose some more options before you click Next kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_61.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  6. Turn OFF your iDevice & prepare to put it to DFU mode then click Next kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_62.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  7. DFU mode: Press & hold the POWER button for 3 seconds kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_63.jpgkid_ant_5.png

  9. DFU mode: Release the POWER button but keep holding on the HOME button for another 15 seconds or until you see Jailbreaking... on redsn0w kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_65.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  10. Wait until it tells you that The rest of the process takes place on your iDevice. Click Finish kid_ant_5.pngThat will take around 8 to 9 minutes to complete

PART 2 - UNLOCKING with ultrasn0w (iPhone ONLY):kid_ant_5.png
  1. Open Cydiakid_ant_5.pngDon't worry if Cydia's icon is blank/all-white, it will still work. kid_ant_5.pngThe first time you open Cydia, this is what you'll see (image below), then it will close itself and take you back to the homescreenkid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_66.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  2. Open Cydia again. Before you proceed with the unlock, go to Changes first and do a Complete Upgrade kid_ant_5.png
  3. Tap Reboot Device after the upgrade kid_ant_5.png

What is dfu mode and how do you do it


You enter dfu mode so iTunes can detect an iPhone in recovery mode and then prompt you to restore. You will lose all your files when you do this but if you have a backup in iTunes then you're good to go. To enter dfu mode, just press both power and home buttons simultaneously for exactly 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the power but keep holding home then wait until iTunes detects your iphone and prompt you to restore.

Hi, my iPhone 3G is stuck at the apple logo and would reboot over and over again forever! The main problem is that it charges from the wall and charges from my laptops, yes i have two. also i can put it...


hold down the home and power button until you see the plug into itunes symbol. Once that is done start up itunes. then plug you're iphone into your computer via usb. but not until itunes is started. it should prompt you to do a restore.
