      The Pwnage tool worked as expected without issue. It is very straight forward to create a new custom firmware. After restoring 5A240d custom firmware the image in iTunes for my phone was now an ipod and not a phone and it had been rename to untitled playlist (this was the same with the 1.0 tool). I was able to restore my data from the backup and there were no issues. All texts, contacts and photos were loaded.

      5A240d was more stable than 5A225c, but it did crash after prolonged use. I wasn't able to get the Exchange functions to work as i couldn't get my account to verify, though this may have been an issue with my account or my settings. I was able to connect to my network, O2Uk and Edge had no issues. SSH worked fine. YouTube worked fine. Contacts had search function. Safari had a save image function, which is very straight forward: press and hold on an image and the option to save photo appears on the screen, images saved to DCIM/100APPLE. Screen shots can be taken using Home and power button pressed in unison these images are saved to DCIM/999APPLE the same as 1.1.4. The number of available languages and keyboards are significantly increased from the few in 1.1.4 to large scrolling lists.

      I only wanted to try out 5A240d, the restore back to 1.1.4 was easy with no issues.

      For anyone going to try this I would recommend that you make a copy of the iPhone backup which can be found in /Users/[youruser]/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup just in case anything goes wrong with the restore.
      This is probably the best info so far, I have a two quick questions if I could get someone to kindly answer:

      I am on 1.1.4, but Windows. My friend has a Mac, if I were to build a firmware for the beta (recent one) and bring it home to my Vista PC, could i use the restore in iTunes? (I know all I need to do is select activate in the pwnage tool right?)

      Also, what does it take to go back to 1.1.4 if you have issues with the beta? I just need the exchange support...

      Try checking for any stray volumes either in Finder or Terminal at /Volumes. http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36525

      i just pwned my friends 16gb iphone with firmware 2.0 5A240D. I could not test the exchange because he doesnt have an exchange account, but i did test everything else. It does have the multiple delete for mail, parental controls, new maps (didnt work for me with edge, just wifi), new calculator (scientific on landscape only), search for contacts (by name only, not number). i did not have time to check youtube videos in safari. the only problem i think we had besides the maps not working on edge was that when he was restoring his information (calendar, contacts, ect.) it froze and crashed, but restored fine after a reboot. This is all i can think of off hand. im going to stick with my jailbroke 1.1.4 since i have iMapIdle to check my exchange until installer and more programs are supported for 2.0. One other thing, there is a new icon on the dashboard for contacts, and appstore and itunes store do not have icons still. Overall I would say it seams pretty stable for a beta (only crashed once while restoring personal information). I will try to test more features tomorrow and post my results. Hope this is helpful to all those with a lot of questions.

      As you say you would need to pwn your phone, I would unlock (needed for certain networks to get a signal, o2uk for example), activate and install bootneuter. Once this is done I can't see why you wouldn't be able to restore from a windows pc, however I haven't tested this.

      If you have an issue put your phone in recovery and restore 1.1.4, though you'll have to re-install any apps you had.

      probably not much help now but make sure you hold the option key [ ⌥ ] while clicking restore... that'll bring up the file chooser...

      I have heard of some people experiencing the missing iPhone because they used the iPod touch restore file... but don't really see how that would be the case for you. I would personally try starting from the beginning and pwning again from scratch, I ended up having to restart it a couple of times but it's all good now Pwnage tool should still be able to connect to it...

      Hope that helps!!

      I know this may sound stupid but i do use photoshop and i am having a hell of a time saving a PNG File with ALPHA Channels... i made the art board the exact measurements used Gray scale and or RGB and saved it under 100 kb but it says it isn't correct and won't upload my image... could someone post instructions for photoshop to get an image uploaded? I would it!

      make sure you put your phone back into recovery mode prior to restoring with custom firmware

      open a new document with the dimensions of an iphone wallpaper, make sure in the background settings it is transparent. then copy and paste your boot image into this document, it will come in on its own layer, make sure you can see some of the transperancy from the newly created image. now leaving it in layers (do not flatten images) choose save for web or device, make a png24 with transparency. this should fix your issue.

      I was looking at the contents of the Pwnage 1.1 tool, and it seems that the Apps are stored in Internal Packages in Bundles. I hadn't read anywhere how to add an app, so for my own interest I tried to add an app. I chose Flashlight as it is a simple app. I copied Installer.bundle and renamed it to Flashlight.bundle. I then deleted the Var folder and the installer.app from Applications. I then SSHed to my working 1.1.4 and copied the Flashlight.app which I placed in the Applications folder. I then edited the Info.plist to the following:





      Name
      Flashlight
      Identifier
      com.prometheus.flashlight
      Description
      Flashlight.
      SupportedFirmware

      iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102
      iPod1,1_1.1.4_4A102

      Commands


      Size
      19436



      I ran the edited Pwnage tool and created a custom firmware. Now in the custom Packages Flashlight appeared, I checked it and continued to create the firmware. I restored the new firmware onto my iPhone and sure enough the Flashlight app was present and fully functional. Only thing to note is that it doesn't appear in the installer if you wanted to uninstall, but I can live with that.

      Now I just need to tackle my other favorite apps.

      Just wonder below is what i have tried surf all over google and forums i know it asking alot but can some one could make a tutorial how to make boot logos in photoshop. every thing tried does not work very new to photoshop

      open a new document with the dimensions of an iphone wallpaper, make sure in the background settings it is transparent. then copy and paste your boot image into this document, it will come in on its own layer, make sure you can see some of the transperancy from the newly created image. now leaving it in layers (do not flatten images) choose save for web or device, make a png24 with transparency. this should fix your issue

      NOTE***: There are stringent requirements for these files. They must be 24bit PNGs, 100KB or less, have an alpha layer, RGB or Greyscale, and 320x480 or less in size.

      HINT***: If you want to use a solid image as your background. Create a new transparent image in photoshop just slightly bigger then your original image. Copy your original image onto the new transparent image you just created. Make sure you can see some of the transparency layer on the sides. Then select Save for Web from the File Menu. Make sure you save it as PNG24 with transparency enabled!

      Thanks

      Great, thanks again for your reply. So just to clarify, by pwn do you mean I just build the firmware on the mac for the beta, make sure I select activate, then bring it to my PC and restore in itunes using the firmware?

      I shouldn't have to unlock because I am AT&T right?
