The iPhone DevTeam has simply demonstrated that their newly launched jailbreaking device known as redsn0w 0.9.3 can be used to jailbreak and unlock iPhone 2G on firmware 3.1.3, provided that you have jailbroken it previously at least once.

NOTE: This guide is for iPhone 2G Only. Jailbroken and unlocked iPhone 3GS, 3G and iPod touch users should NOT upgrade until further instructions.

Follow the simply step by step instructions below to jailbreak and unlock iPhone 2G on 3.1.3 firmware.

Step 1: Update to original iPhone 3.1.3 firmware via iTunes. Downloading and installation instructions for iPhone 3.1.3 firmware can be found here.

Step 2: Start redsn0w 0.9.3 and point it to the original iPhone 3.1.2 firmware to proceed. This is required because redsn0w 0.9.3 can not read or validate iPhone 3.1.3 firmware.

Step 3: Now select both “Install Cydia” and “Unlock” options.

Step 4: Now make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer before you click “Next”.

At this stage you will be presented with a screen where you will have to quickly hold “Power” button and then while holding the “Power” button, you will now have to hold “Home” button too. Now after few seconds release “Power” button but keep holding “Home” button until installation begins.

Step 5: Sit back and enjoy while redsn0w will do all the rest for you. Once done, your iPhone 2G will restart automatically and you will find it jailbroken and unlocked with iPhone firmware version 3.1.3.

For iPhone 3G and 3GS Users: We strongly suggest that you stay away from this official upgrade until and unless the DevTeam or George Hotz releases new jailbreaking and unlocking tools for 3.1.3 firmware. We will let you know when it will happen. In the meantime you can follow our complete jailbreaking and unlocking guide for iPhone 3.1.2 firmware using blackra1nPwnageTool, redsn0w, sn0wbreeze, ultrasn0w and blacksn0w.
