      LMFAO!!!! This is hilarious! And possibly true! One of my local radio stations always talks ish about the ipod/iphone because they are losing listeners and one of the things they say is "We heard your iPod has a tiny little camera in it that allows the government to watch and hear everything you do! KRAB radio doesn't care what you do. Take that iPod!" LOL

      hmm... i have the day off due to a snow emergency and am tempted to just update to pwned 2.2 since 2.2.1 doesn't really seem to do much. (i'm still on 2.1 and my iphone is running like crap)

      is there a reason to wait for pwned 2.2.1?

      Pusher doesn't jailbreak the phone, to my knowledge it only adds Installer, not Cydia.It's also only available for those using a Mac

      2.2.1 can not be downgraded, jailbroken/unlocked etc etc due to the baseband update.Just have to wait it out like the rest of us

      Anyone notice a difference in cell signal? For some reason I'm not getting 3G in areas where I normall get them. I work in Glendale, CA.

      Also does the new update help or hurt the signal?

      -sigh- so i just bought my iPhone 3G from a 3rd party seller. I wasn't aware you can't use yellowsn0w with 2.2.1 so i upgraded and now i'm stuck on modem firmware 02.30.03. correct??

      I just tried downgrading to 2.2 and my modem firmware is still 02.30.03.

      when is the estimated date for the release of the updated quikpwn??

      how long does it usually take for the update??

      thanks,

      Niko

      could take a day could take a month for quikpwn to come out with new software to unlock the new firmware.Its just a waiting game really.

      at least we can still downgrade if you upgrade accidentally

      I know this isn't the "right" way to jailbrake your 1st gen iphone, but it works.

      Before you update do the following:
      1. open quickpwn and click next and select the 2.2 firmware and wait for it to find it
      2. open itunes and update to 2.2.1
      3. after it restarts close itunes and go back to quickpwn and hit next
      4. select the packages you wish to install, and follow the prompts

      If you follow these steps you will have cydia on your 2.2.1 firmware. All cydia packages are working so far.

      Even if you can jailbreak your iPhone you will NOT be able to YellowSn0w if you update your baseband to 2.30.03 - it only works with 2.28.00 - so wait until a custom ipsw can be made with FW2.21 and BB 2.28.00
