  • Firmware 2.0 is out
    The file is called: iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw and you can snag it from apple here http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....7_Restore.ipsw

    keep in mind this is only for the iphone. Ipod touch users will have to wait a little bit longer today. Also when you go to put it on your phone, for windows users hold the shift key when you click restore so you can tell it to use the file downloaded.



    Use it at your own risk, and keep in mind if you have an unlocked phone, this will lock it, so dont install it. Your phone wont be jailbroken either.

    If you do update your phone, you can install apps now. Super monkey ball rocks, and the ebay app is very nice


    EDIT
    The 2.0 firmware erases every bit of data and info on your iPhone and completely installs the iPhone 2.0 firmware. So as long as you are on AT&T, you can officially use all features available on the phone.

    Your phone obviously WONT be unlocked, NOT would it be jailbroken.

      Hmm...interesting thought.
      Did you had a jailbroken / unlocked 1.1.4 beforehand? And what's it's state now (unlocked/jailbroken).

      For those stuck in recovery mode, I just tried this and it seems to work. Good luck.

      I went from a jailbroken 1.1.1 to 1.1.4 and got stuck in recovery mode. Did the instructions below and then updated to 2.0 and it worked. IMPORTANT: Leave the phone attached and iTunes open until it comes back up. I think that is why I had the problems in the first place.

      Save your iPhone with recovery mode - iPhone Alley

      Anybody having problems that make the iPhone restart after updating? I've had mine crash and restart three times already when starting up one of the apps downloaded from the app store.

      After dozens of failed attempts and following a bunch of tutorials, I finally had the inspiration to try on windows. Itunes was already installed on (7.6) and right after I restored in DFU mode (and got some error), I could restore in normal recovery mode.

      ALL the mac attempts failed for some reason and I tested with both 7.5 and 7.6 downgraded Itunes.

      BTW - I recovered using a 1.1.4 firmware found in this forum's wiki (firmware download links).
      I don't know if you had the same problem I did, but when I first tried to update I had an error, so I was forced to restore, the 2nd attempt was a success. I think the reason why it worked was the extension of the file. Instead of ending with .ipsw.zip, delete ".zip" and it should work, it did for me anyways.

      Okay nm my contacts problem is gone. I restored to an older save and then synced with outlook. Then i restored as a new phone and synced with outlook merging the account in the process.

      So i have a fully working 2.0 with monkey ball, remote, facebook, and jolt so far.

      Apple has not released the 2.0 firmware in itunes yet. If you want it you have to use the link provided on the first post.

      That's just what I was going to say, there's no reason to not say it right here if you're going to be typing it up (maybe multiple times) anyway.

      Assuming you read the very first sentence of the first post which has the link for the download, I suggest you try to read the next two sentences as they tell you how to install it.

      (On windows, hold shift and click restore, then point to the file you just downloaded. On mac, press whatever button it is mac presses and do the same thing)
