  • Firmware 2.0.1 is available.


    I just started a restore on my 3G and iTunes asked me to update my phone to 2.0.1!

    More info to come!

    Update: Also available for iPod touch owners.
    Update 2: So far, after upgrading, my iPhone 3G seems to be overall quicker. Apps load faster and keyboard lag is just about non-existant.-ajl917



    Edit Poseidon:
    If your phone is pwned and you hit upgrade in iTunes you will get error 6 and you will have to re-pwn your phone with the custom 2.0.0 software.


    The current versions of Pwnage and WinPwn will not work with 2.0.1 right now!! Stay posted for updates to these programs!!-ajl917

      this is sweet... my first gen boots a lot quicker with this 2.0.1 update (which was really needed if you ask me... 2.0 was way to slow). and it still says "Ruud" where once it said "t-mobile" YaY (LOL)

      who cares bout apps... my iPhone seems quick again 10 points for apple

      All and all, the firmware update does provide some reliability, and smooths things out. I'll try to tax it later on with running GPS and the ipod at the same time. In the past that's crashed the map program as the phone got really warm.

      Like some people, I'm probably going to downgrade unless 2.5 takes care of this small patch.

      What is the baseband thing I've been hearing about that might make it impossible to jailbreak in the future? I'm still new to the jailbreak/software end of things...

      I'm sorry to sound mean but are you serious? Really?
      First off, there will be nothing you can do until the Dev Team releases new ways to jailbreak/unlock the new 2.0.1 firmware. Secondly, you should've either waited or read before performing the upgrade because this is something many people have posted before. Your phone is not broken, you will just have to do without a jailbroken phone for awhile.
      Third, search the forums about downgrading to 1.1.4. I believe it's possible with 2.0 (not sure about 2.0.1), but I also believe it is not as easy as it was before.

      well u need to uninstall itunes 7.7.1
      uninstall apple device support
      all these are in add//remove programs
      download itunes 7.6
      install it
      then get the phone in dfu mode...
      then restore it to 1.1.4
      then install itunes 7.7
      then upgrade to 2.0 custom firmware...
      i think this should work....

      Anyone actually gotten their firmware to roll back to 2.0 jailbroken? I get error 6 when trying to restore using iTunes 7.7. With 7.5 and 7.6 iTunes launches when the DFU modem iPhone is connected but the iPhone doesn't show up in iTunes.

      i just went from 2.0.1 back to pwned 2.0 by just using the old 2.0 firmware and doing it the way ur supposed to with pwnage tools i had no errors or nothing only thing is you cant restore from backup because the firmware is too old so you will have to correct all your settings and such once pwned!!!!!!!!

      simple dimples! now just to wait for the updated pwnage tools then upgrade again!

      FYI: My Belkin car charger/fm transmitter no longer brings up the "This device not meant to work..." message when plugged into the 3G with 2.01....and it still works.

      cheers,

      i totally agree! simple things like customize are a godsend for the iphone. if there was no jailbreak i would have been completely bored of this phone long ago. i mean seriously thanks to the dev community we had games on our iphones before apple released any.
