  • Iphone Firmware 2.1 - Grab it While It's Hot


    The iPhone 2.1 software update contains many bug fixes and improvements. To get it, connect your iPhone to your computer using iTunes 8 and click Check for Update.


    Update includes:

    Decrease in call set-up failures and dropped calls
    Significantly better battery life for most users
    Dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
    Improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
    Faster installation of 3rd party applications
    Fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes for users with lots of third party applications
    Improved performance in text messaging
    Faster loading and searching of contacts
    Improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
    Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
    Option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
    Genius playlist creation


    You can find the update in itunes and we'll have it here shortly: (Thanks to Raxxal for the links)

    Here you can get the new updates:

    For 3G Iphone

    For 2G Iphone


    MMI Note: If you have a jailbroken phone or if your phone is unlocked.....DO NOT UPDATE....until we get word from the Devs
    *First generation users - if you upgrade in iTunes you will lose your jailbreak, but retain your unlock/activation due to the baseband not changing. If you restore, you will lose your jailbreak AND activation but remain unlocked.

    Note to 3G Users - If you upgrade in iTunes to 2.1 and have intelliscreen installed (or other programs that modify your com.apple.springboard.plist you WILL get the Spinning Wheel of Death after you upgrade and have to restore.


    Quickpwn/Winpwn/Pwnage DO NOT WORK on this new firmware yet.

    Thanks to Reeko for posting it in the Iphone Talk Section

      i don't own an Blackberry, so I wouldn't know. I'd prefer if there we some sort of OTA code AT&T could send to the phone that could unlock it and allow you to reset the password.

      the data wipe thing just sounds like something that can be easily abused.

      but hey...if it's the industry standard, perhaps it'll be a non-issue.

      it's a 4 digit passcode. if you don't think you'd remember it, definitely don't use it. no one's forcing you to unless it's for work. then your it policy may require it. plus, the data wipe is actually an option and not forced on you so. you do have a choice

      if you get stuck at the boot logo, then don't restore from backup. Setup as new iPhone then select sync contacts from this computer. It took me 4 tries to figure this out.

      That was the first though that crossed my mind. They just changed the way the bars were displayed to shut people up. Look ive got more bars now! he haw!
      My 3G usually displayed 1-3 bars but I could still download at 450kbs, so i wasnt to worried about it

      Successfully updated from 2.0.2 previously winpwned with 2.5 beta to new 2.1 on my 1st generation iPhone using iTunes 8 update procedure, end result is my iPhone is still unlocked and activated.

      Seems very stable, yes will have to wait to jailbreak, but will see what 2.1 offers.

      Thats a d** shame, And the fact that their were two diffrent uploads 1 for edge and another for 3g made it all the easier for em to do it. Apple & ATT are desperate to get out of a couple of lawsuits regard the 3G servies so it wouldnt suprise me that they'd do something underhandedly to save their on hide.

      I got it.. damn i had to do 5 restores before i figured just start a new phone instead of use existing back up.

      Iphone 3g / 16 gb white
      Jailbroken 2.0.2 firmware with winpwn 2.5
      iTunes 8.0

      Just wait... If your phone works than no harm in waiting... I did a test and then went back to 2.0.2 (2g iphone)

      I also tried to ssh but no luck...
