  • 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

    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.

      Has anybody come up with a solution to Mail.app crashing without setting the phone up as a new phone? My understanding is that this is a know issue with permissions. I'd like to keep my SMS history on the phone. I think everything else except maybe notes is backed up in various apps during syncing. It wouldn't be tragic to have to restore to new but I'd rather not if there is another solution.

      When you update/install the 2.0 firmware, your phone will be wiped... was I the only one that read that???

      Ignorance is bliss.

      Probably around 8 am (ish..... maybe time zone dependent...... PST Maybe?) to go along with the new phone........ or later to make us with a 1ft gen suffer!

      I have read through and no one has mentioned this. For the few people who have upgraded to 2.0....

      Do you have a contacts app now....like from the touch?

      I didnt hear anything about it befor its release. But mine does have the contacts app allong with the phone app.

      Yes, yes we have. It's funny because I always thought it would be handy but now that I have it I find it quite pointless considering it's part of the phone.app

      I did the download from iTunes and now it's trying to access iPhone iTunes store and it's not connecting to the store. So now i cannot use my phone!!!! It won't even let me go to the iPhone main screen on iTunes. Any suggestions?

      Now i have a nice little error that says "We could not complete your iTunes store request. An unknown error occurred (-9838)"

      So i've read these posts and just want to get something cleared up. If Im an At&t customer and i have a 1.1.4 jailbroken iphone, can i simply plug it into my computer and update through itunes without having any serious problems?

      And for that matter, is it updated through itunes or is it a manual process through Ziphone or programs like that?

      Is there any difference between the software/firmware I downloaded from this forum yesterday and what apple is releasing today? If so how do I acquire the newer version? My Itunes tells me I have the latest version 2.0 when I look for an update.
