florevil, it just means you need to click on the link where it says to fill out a request if you need a custom ipsw. You don't actually have to submit a request form, but there are more details on there.

I keep receiving an error6 in my Mac and My PC, I have Pwnaged my iPhone before and was in 2.02 and it worked fine but with all the errors, I finally sat my iPhone as a new phone and now I am on apple firmware 2.1. my question is: Since I pwnaged it before, is it still considered pwnaged by the Pwnage Tool?
Should I be restoring or using DFU?

Hey Willy im still not really sure what to do....im gettin a bit confused now...some say the CFW's are unlocked to work with any sim n some say they aernt... can u please help me clear these doubts
I am on 1.1.1 and want to upgrade to 2.1 ..so
1) Should i go directly from 1.1.1 to 2.1 CFW or do the 2.1 Stock firmware first n then restore to 2.1 CFW.
2) Are the CFW's "UNLOCKED" to work with any sim card(I am on Vodafone India).
3) Are the CFW's jailbroken to allow third party apps?
4) Are all the apps compatible on 2.1 specially snapture, iPhoneVideoRecorder, Cycorder, etc

Are you on a mac? If so, you can create a ringtone using garageband.
If not, you'll need to install openSSH and SSH or SFTP into your phone to transfer the ringtones and/or ipas. Check the Guides (top of the page) for more info.

what do i do if im on 1.1.4 stock (previously jailbroken) and when i try to upgrade to 2.1 stock (via itune 8) i get an error every time. can i go from 1.1.4 stock to 2.1 jailbroken?
10-14-2008, 01:24 PM #34
THANK YOU KIND SIR, worked beautifully using the first method, now my phone is at 2.1, all working (touch wood) and all good.
Thank you so much.
Upgraded from a jailbroken and unlocked 1.1.1 to 2.1.0 directly using the CFW and method 1 with a restore from itunes.
Just discovered a couple of problems. No matter what, unable to sync any movies from my itunes. All else synced beautifully including songs and videos but NO movies. Any solution to this? Thank You.
Also, apps d/l from app store; unable to sync, gives error, 'unable to sync as you are not authorised on this computer'
Thanks for any help.

PS: ive got other cracked apps/games running smoothly so i dont think this could be a problem with the mobileInstallation
10-21-2008, 02:34 PM #37
Hm, well it wouldn't hurt to patch your mobileinstallation file again just to be safe, but it almost sounds like a code signing problem. If repatching the mobileinstallation still isn't working, I would just try to download the programs again, and delete the old ones.
I think you can extract the crash logs from your phone using the SDK if you have a mac also.

Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap.....
All rise please...
Thanks David. Big time.
11-01-2008, 12:19 PM #39
Ok, I finally did it!!! Thank You so MUCH! God bless you.
P.S. I used Method 1; after selecting and downloading CFW from your serve files (so easy).

Just wanted to clear up some things, since there wasn't a clear answer to if these would work with unlocked iPhones..
I have a 2G 8GB iPhone running a 2.0.2 that has been pwnd, unlocked and jailbroken from WinPwn.
I needed 2.1 for some apps from the App Store, and I like to keep my iPhone stock (no need for flashy mods) so I downloaded
The first post (iPhone.greatness.tx.com
I backed up my iPhone, and did the Shift-Click restore method and chose the iPhone-2G-2.1-custom-activate-nobootlogos.ipsw file.
It restored, and BootNeutor showed up and it said it was already unlocked and didn't do anything to it.
My iPhone rebooted and went to the home screen, and had signal from T-Mobile (I'm in the US)
Just restored the backup and everything is in place.. My pics, WiFi settings, APN Settings, ect.. The only thing it didn't transfer was my apps from the App Store, Music and Ringtones..
Hopes this helps clear stuff up!
