  • Jailbroken? DON'T upgrade to 2.2 when it hits.


    The iPhone Dev Team (yup, they're still around) has been a bit quiet of late, noses to the grind stone and fingers typing speedily into their respective Terminals... seeking a 3G iPhone software unlock. While they have made progress (running unsigned code on the 3G baseband, among others), a software unlock for the 3G has yet remained elusive.

    With the 2.2 firmware being released soon, Apple again has set things in the update to nix the jailbreak-ability of it. The best thing, as always, for jailbreakers is to WAIT UNTIL ITS SAFE TO UPGRADE, then use the guide which we'll pop out to do so. This has typically been within days, sometimes hours, of the new firmware release.

    The dev team warns:

    Now for something a bit more serious, we’ve explained about the pros and cons of applying Apple’s updates in the past and we’ve warned against the immediate installation of these updates without knowing what they do to your device.

    This is indeed true of the iPhone 3G’s upcoming 2.2 release. Installing 2.2 straight away on the iPhone 3G using the iTunes auto-updater could affect your chances of any software unlock in the near future (should one be found and released), so when you see an update in iTunes await our instructions first!

    Please don’t blindly install the update and then complain about it later ;-)
    Thanks for the work, dev team, and to all you hundreds of thousand of jailbreakers - and those waiting for 3G software unlocks - keep on keepin on.

      Just a Tip. But you can Jailbreak 2.1 on Windows.
      You have to use QuickPwn.
      Its not that complicated.

      Just out of interest.

      So I don't mistakenly update my jailbroken 2.1 firmware. How do I disable itunes from auto updating, or will it always prompt me before downloading and installing any updates.

      it'll prompt you but won't automatically update until you tell it to.

      It will always prompt you to download and install it or to simply just download it.

      EDIT: Seems NoodleBoy beat me to it...

      Seriously, shouldn't this thread be renamed:

      "... 2.2 IF it hits."

      grr... i've been waiting FOREVER.
      I've jailbroken my 2.1 like 4 times and kept having problems and had to restore...

      (bootloop with endless loading spiral)

      i haven't done it for like a month because i've been waiting for THIS!! >=(

      im mad. just release the damn firmware already.

      I'm sorry, but i find it really funny to see you people say "OH NO NO, don't upgrade until teh great dev team has brought the jailbreak!!". You all seem to like to call a lot of people apple fanboys.. it looks to me like you're dev team fanboys. Yeah, I jailbreak. did I upgrade today? you bet. and guess what? all that lag and slowness that I experienced with my jailbreak? it's gone. just sayin'.

      I was reading Dev Teams blog and stumbled across Rip Devs blog Pusher: Your 2.2 jailbreak - RiP Dev they talk about a new kind of jailbreak for 2.2 firmware

      Just updated to 2.2 all paid apps working but cracked apps not working. Used PUSH to jailbreak and everything is working again but only installer no cydia.
