1. Download and decompress the PwnageTool application from the iPhone Dev-Team blog.

Check these links for more information about where to locate firmware files on your computer or where you can download firmware for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or the iPhone 3G.

5. Follow the remaining prompts and PwnageTool will create your custom jailbroken firmware file.

6. PwnageTool will now help you put your iPhone into DFU mode manually. Follow the instructions carefully.

7. Once the iPhone is in DFU mode open iTunes. Hold down ALT + OPTION and click the Restore button in iTunes. Choose the custom firmware created by PwnageTool and iTunes will restore to the jailbroken firmware.
