  • 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

      this is working awesome now
      i think apple realised that they needed a stable platform before they could add any more features like cut and paste etc

      True, now they will be able to build on what looks like the best update since 1.1.3...

      what was all this about intelliscreen and updating to 2.1?

      i have/had intelliscreen on 2.02 and currently updating.. but someone wrote i would see the circle of death if it was installed during update..

      someone fill me in please..

      also, do i HAVE to be JB to use intelliscreen?

      yes you have to be jailbroken to use intelliscreen and by upgrading to 2.1 intelliscreen would be erased from your phone, so not about what the other person was saying

      from previous posts, it seems like a problem caused by a restored backup. you will need to restore your phone and set it up as new

      I tried #3001#12345#, and I get an overlay with the progress spinner, then an error that says "Error performing request No Network Service" and a "Dismiss" button.

      3G 8gig on AT&T, and still on 2.0.2 & Quickpwn... not upgrading till Quickpwn for 2.1 is released.

      there is no version to jailbreak 2.1 yet, thus all of us waiting for one, you will have to wait like everyone else for a copy of the new quickpwn for 2.1

      I hope that was clear enough
