  • 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

      miVtones - except its not even close to worth $20
      chromium iphone and keyboard
      gTxtEdit
      websearch
      zip

      but of course other those and the great stuff like intelliscreen and customize that your not interested in then there is nothing useful on cydia
      So.. you prefer to drive a broken car with pretty decals as opposed to a car that is reliable with just the standard package.

      What good does mxtube do you if it crashes repeatedly?

      For me at least.. the stability of the 2.0.1 update far outweighs the pleasure of being jailbroken on 2.0.

      I had safari crash over 7 times in 5 mins last night. I am a heavy safari user and constant and random crashes across the board ruin it for me.

      p.s. - the mxtube crashing comment was merely an example of the 2.0 instability and not a complaint against the program itself.

      Apple is trying to fix a bad release as fast as possible. I don't think they care about jailbreakers...

      how do i perform the upgrade and keep the unlock? Is there a special method that I have to use?

      Precisely my point. Hmmm... can't run openSSH on my phone but it no longer crashes, crawls to a halt or spontaneously reboots. Once a critical mass of app store apps are installed on 2.0 strange things happen. There is an app store sync process that continuously runs in the background hosing the CPU (take a look at top) which is why there are lag issues. Enough for me to abandon jailbreak and upgrade. Anyway, pwnagetool for 2.0.1 will be out soon enough. So I think I can survive a week or so without mxtube or terminal.

      yeah... just hit "Update" in iTunes

      Ummm no... they are trying to patch bugs. Stopping jailbrake is something that isn't even on their radar. Pwnagetool doesn't work with the new firmware because it's a new firmware... that's the only reason

      I can confirm that upgrading to 2.0.1 does not relock, but you will lose installer/cydia and any installer apps. I never used any anyway, phone is Much snappier now!

      Sure. What kind of iphone do you have? I'm assuming it was the hacked firmware that you downloaded? It is for 3g phones only. If it was the unmodded firmware it cannot be jailbroken yet with pwnage tool or winpwn. Have to use xpwn running on linux.

      Once uncompressed, it is 247.9 mb and it does work because I just tried it and now have a jailbroken 2.0.1 3G iphone.

      Edit: Installed NES and Winterboard. Work Perfectly.

      I downloaded the rapidshare files in this thread which contains the 2.0.1 J/B F/W, placed my iPhone into DFU mode and installed with iTunes. Synced my phone and ssh'ed all my files back. Easy Money. It is not unlocked, I'm with AT&T. It is just Jailbroken with all apps I use working.

      Edit: I forgot to add that I started out with a pwned 2.0

      I can't believe this has not hit the News page yet. I would have thought everyone would be downloading this. Anyways, works great and faster.

      That's a key point. The hacked firmware will fail to install if your phone has never been pwned.
