Hello,

I've recently decided that I am going to jailbreak my 3G iphone, mainly for Java use. However, the only guides I can find for jailbreaking 2.0.2 require a mac. I do not have a mac, i'm one of those happy Windows users.

Anyone got any solution to jailbreak the 2.0.2 OS with the use of a Windows PC?
If a can't do this, i'd be happy to jailbreak 2.0.1. But my other question is this: can I actually downgrade to 2.0.1 from 2.0.2? Or is this not possible?

Thanks

I successfully used quickpwn on windows a few days ago to jailbreak my v2.02 iphone 3g. Was a piece of cake

go for winpwn, quickpwn isn't as customisable and assumes a few things are already working/have happened to your phone - if they haven't then you run into problems.  winpwn is just like pwnagetool for mac so very good.

what advantages do you have from jailbreaking? I'm thinking of doing it but scared to brick the phone

if i jailbreak, will i keep all my apps that i currently have installed?
also as I understand it, once an update comes out, i have to reinstall the whole phone and apply a new jailbreak every time right?

hmmm could someone who has successfuly used winpwn for 2.0.2 please give a short guide (where to download from, what to watch out for etc). I just looked at this http://www.modmyifone.com/wiki/index.php/Jailbreak_and_Unlock_2.x_on_Windows

and I see one of the questions in the installation is "are you using an official carrier? I just dont want to mess up my UNLOCK since I am traveling to europe soon and I will be using another carrier..

btw i am on Vista X64 :-o
