    Is it save to upgrade to 2.0 now and re-jailbreak later or does the jailbreak for 2.0 require to put something into the system prior to upgrade?

    let us realize that the hardware has not changed, so we can't discount that PWNage will do its work here. As far as the iPhone 3G, it is anyone's guess as to whether it will work or not.

    Now there are probably apps that will not work right away on '2.0'. But that is alright, as they will be fixed in time .

    What's funny is my iTunes says not only 7.6.2 is current, but so is the iPhone itself (1.1.4)
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Didn't the Dev Team post some time ago that they had already jailbroken 2.0? Just after it was announced?

    It was a very early beta, beta 2 I think. After that they hadn't found(or at least told anyone) a new jailbreak after that.

    I suspect they have upgraded pwnagetool to work with the new firmware. They are not trying YET to break into the iphone3G so it should not be too different than jailbreaking and unlocking the beta 2.0 as of a few weeks ago. Maybe I'm wrong but....... GREAT WORK dev-team!!

    Somehow I don't see doing a jailbreak preparation before upgrading to 2.0, because from what was said before, the 2.0 firmware erases every little data byte from the iPhone and completely re-does the whole thing. So, I would imagine that you would have to upgrade to 2.0 first, then jailbreak it afterward. But that's just my opinion, don't hold me to it lol

    The challenge is trying to bypass or downgrade the new bootloader that the 3G phones will come with. The last time they changed the bootloader on us with 1.1.2 OTB it took a couple months to crack it. (Ziphone)

    I take that back, its possible they could be using a firmware editing tool or something.
