How To Jailbreak The Iphone 3G with Redsn0w

Hey everyone, sorry for not posting in such a long time. I have a good one today for you Iphone users out there.

In today’s article I will explain how I jailbroke my iPhone 3G.

What is jailbreaking you ask?

The jailbreak is a term used to refer to devices that can freely install and run whatever application the user might want or need. Read more on that here

Please understand that JAILBREAKING is not UNLOCKING your device.  Unlocking is when you free the iPhone to run on other cellular carriers other than ATT. Jailbreaking is a risk free process where you will open the OS of the phone to install and run whatever applications you wish. Also, you can ALWAYS restore your device to the factory state using iTunes, which will vanish the jailbreak modifications.
Everything that was working before this process will continue to work, including all the default applications and pre-installed software’s like AppStore and it’s applications. Jailbreaking will simply just open another door for you to choose a path.

Recently I was visited my my brother-in-law and he had just jailbroken his iPhone. I had always thought I might try this one day but I was scared it would mess up a lot of things like my Itunes account, syncing, corrupt the phone OS, slow the phone down, etc. He showed his phone to me and it was totally fine. He was able to carry on just like before but now there were lots of new tweaks on his phone that I always wanted the iPhone to do, like video record, the ability to block calls like many of my older simpler Nokia cell phones uses to do, and also have a simple battery percentage meter(see below), which just came out on the new 3GS by default but not in the new 3.0 OS update from Apple for the current 3G iPhone. Why Apple Why? See the bottom of this post to see how to enable this nice little feature.
