Jailbreak an old iPhone 3g with redsn0w

My old iPhone 3g has been sitting around with a broken screen for a few years now, recently found it and thought i’ll see if i can resuscitate it!

No SIM (don’t need one in it) so couldn’t do a lot, jailbreak it is… (i have never jailbroken a phone before)

Took some finding to get the right combination of IPSW file to go with a compatible version of redsn0w.

I ended up using:

redsn0w_mac_0.9.6rc18.zip

and

iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw

and now i have a jailbroken iPhone 3G that i can actually use again. Might be fun for a while before it ends up back in the draw!
