  • 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

      Anyone else having issue with their VisualVoicmail not sounding right when listening through iPhone. If I listen directly from the voicemail by pressing "1" it sounds fine. Even the voicemails I had before upgrading to 2.1 sound like they're talking through a tin can or something and I know they were ok before that. Any ideas? btw I've restored a second time just to see if there was a problem the first time. Thanks in advance.

      I noticed that after I used quickpwn to jailbreak my iphone on 2.1 the reception of 3G wasn't a good as it was before i jailbroke. Anyone else notice this?


      Nevermind, checked in my Boss Prefs and 3G was off, sorry, it works fine.

      I have not used my 3G yet because am waiting for unlock so am happy for now learning and useing the 2G but just noticed you mention "visual" voicemail? Is this a 3G feature or am I missing somthing that should work with the 2G? I'm familiar with voicemail but visual?

      Also, before I updated I had the Make it Mine app from Cydia, and I changed my Carrier thing, well I updated and it stayed the same. Pretty sweet I thought. Just a cool thing that happen.

      I ran into a similar problem after quickpwn is asking to activate again! But after I shut down iTunes and eestart it it does find the 3G so I don't know if is a problem yet because Im not on AT&T? I guess Ill find out Monday after new sim adapter arrives? Good luck, I hope you figure yours out.

      After useing quickpwn iTunes asked if I wanted to activate? I plan on trying a sim adapter so I chose to " activate later" but now am thinking this was wrong to do? Can anyone help me out? This is a 3g phone from eBay that was activated by the seller but sent to me with no sim card so when I see the message " waiting for activation this may take a while" is only when I have a sim card from a different ATT phone in the iPhone , when no sim is in the 3g I just get " no sim" and yes iTunes does find the phone when connected, Is this normal ?
