  • 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.

      i see alot of bricked iphones in the near future.

      everyone askin how to download 2.0,
      when you brick your phone,
      sell it to me!!!! lmao

      eventually there will be a method to unbrick it!

      but you guys wont wait, will you?

      just sell it and brick another one.

      learn to search guys, damn!
      or at least learn to read.

      and damnit, jailbreak is not the same as unlock!!!!!!!!!
      jailbreak is so u can change files on the iphone!
      geeeeeez!
      u must have jailbreak.
      it already has been done!
      unlock is all we need for the sim to work.

      Yes a reason to jailbreak will be to change icons, carrier name, basically everything that summerboard, customize or intelliscreen does.

      Just did the upgrade to 2.0

      -Standard AT&T customer
      -Jailbroken 1.1.4 as the starting point
      -Restore process to 2.0
      -Said it failed,
      -Restarted and connected to iTunes
      -iTunes requested to Restore it
      -Restarted and it's fine and running 2.0

      Interesting things:
      -I had use Make It Mine to change the service name - that setting seems to have stuck, so maybe the failure didn't completely wipe - or the Restore that I had to do at the end put those settings back in place
      -Also, not sure if it's new to 2.0, but had run the App from Installer to show Contacts in Springboard - they still show now. Again, not sure if it's a mistake from my Restore process, or if it's supposed to be there
      -Set up Exchange - worked perfectly - only concern is that if I choose to Sync calendars it says it has to wipe all calendars - does this mean I can only have Exchange or iCal, but not both? Going to try setting up Exchange and then Sync again to see if it will add mine back in....

      Thanks for the info!

      Heres an idea, since you cant stand all of these questions, why don't you just stop viewing this topic???? you arent helping anybody by telling everybody how little they know, if you know so much shed some light on some of the questions people are asking.

      LOL - I got thanked for my blunt and sarcastic answer.

      Things that have been covered so far in this thread.

      1.) Firmware 2.0 is released by manual update
      2.) No public broadcast of how to jailbreak/unlock, although there are photos here
      3.) Downgrading back to 1.1.X is a whore, so don't attempt to upgrade to 2.0 if you are not an AT&T customer.
      4.) Upgrading will DELETE everything on your phone. Sync before you upgrade.

      with the app store up now, are the mods going to make new forums for app store apps? macrumors already has... it would be handy to keep them separated before people start posting too much about these new apps.

      So is this an official release or something that was found by snooping around? If the latter, how do we know it's the same thing that will be released later today/tomorrow?

      Someone found it snooping around on the Apple site. It's not official til it's available through iTunes. There's still time for Apple to make changes.
