MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR PHONE
1. You need to download two files:
x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw and iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw. You can get both of them over here:
http://users.on.net/thevillage/pwnage/win/
2. Make sure you have iTunes 7.7 installed.
for vista: Click start then copy this into the search box and press enter after:
for XP: click start then run, then copy this into the run box:
Code:
%appdata%\Apple Computer\iTunes
3. Make a directory callled: Device Support
If it already exists, clear it.
4. copy x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw into the Device Support folder you just created.
5. ok, you need to get your device into DFU mode. watch this video to see how:
6. Once your phone is in DFU mode and detected by iTunes (should be black screen on phone NOT iTunes logo with usb cable), click on iPhone in iTunes, then hold the SHIFT key and click on restore.
7. Browse to the folder where you downloaded iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw and select it. iTunes will then extract the file and you will see the ipod dev team’s pinApple logo pop up after a few seonds, like this:

8. when restoring has completed, it will ask you to connect to iTunes, then re-do the activation process (download carrier settings)
9. Restore your backup! this should automatically be made. it should pop up right after downloading carrier settings, but you may also do it by right clicking your iPhone on the left, and selecting “restore iPhone”
10. That’s it, you’re done!




Works very well, finally an alternative for all 3g/windows owners.

now we probably don't want to restore from backup if the backup is a JB 1.1.4 right?

where do I make the "device support" directory? On the desktop of my computer?
2. Make sure you have iTunes 7.7 installed.

For vista: Click start then copy the directory into the search box and press enter.

For XP: Click start and click run, then copy the directory into the run box and press enter.

Directory:
%appdata%\Apple Computer\iTunes

yes there is. And Yes after you do this to your iPhone 3G you will officialy be "pwned" and should seee the Cydia icon on the springboard/desktop/etc.. Apps/themes/mods/tweaks/etc will be coming soon as soon as they are ported over from 1.x to 2.x.
