How do you do a hard restore? I used the new 2.0 link from macrumors and still my mail keeps crashing.

I order for the new firmware to show up in iTunes, you need to change the store to USA. It will show up after you change the location.

Restore complete..phone restarting..
- Phone is working..service..activated..a
- Phone is sync'ing..
Everything is good, but my mail crashes...
I think a hard restore, entales loading a new firmware, and then NOT loading the backup data, and making a new phone, but then you will lose all your information and crap... sooo im not sure the work around until PWN releases the jailbreak app and we can access the file system and delete the mail settings.
Deleting the mail folder and then re-adding it in the file system should work. It's most liekly the same thing that happen in earlier firmwares, where you have to delete the 'settings' that it imported over, because that is what is making it crash... that is what i presume...
and i can't access the file system until its jailbroken.. iBrowser wont let me see anything but my pics and iTunes crap, and that is because its not jailbroken..
Does anyone know where the backup data file is, and if u can edit that??

Can anyone restore their phone? I keep getting:
The required file could not be found
Nevermind, you have to click restore in iTunes and when it ask you to restore you cannot cancel it.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I downloaded and installed 2.0 successfully last night. installed a few apps from the app store (aim, remote, google, etc...) I restarted my phone this morning, and when I try to open the apps I downloaded they open for about 2 sec, try to load, then fail and revert back to the home screen. Its only the downloaded apps, everything else seems to work just fine. Not sure what is going on or what I should try to do...

idk it sounds tempting to upgrade... But I'm going to wait until 2.0 is jailbroken. Then I'll upgrade ( hopefully I can still have my phone on tmobile )

Has there been a solution to the Mail App crashing yet after upgrading to the 2.0 software?
ive tried restoring 4 times already

07-12-2008, 02:57 PM #73So...
I upgraded using the leak from the other day. I was wondering... that one wiped my phone. Will shift-clicking to update to the new, OFFICIAL firmware also wipe it?
thanks in advance!
07-12-2008, 03:02 PM #74
mine didnt wipe on either the leak or the official..
07-12-2008, 03:10 PM #75
Hmm. Yeah it sucked! I had to go and reenter all my numbers, resync all my music. Lost all my photos, and contact images. Ah well. All's good now. I'll just keep my fingers crossed.
Yep. Wiped it again. Sigh.

07-12-2008, 04:22 PM #76mine works hmmm
this is interesting since i downloaded the leaked version then it took forever for everything to download and load up definitely longer than usual but it is probably due to the file size. however after hearing the reports that the one i downloaded was intended for the iphone 3g i still dont feel the need to use the other firmware. mine currently works fine and the only difference that i believe could b seen with the firmwares is that when i use my "fake" gps on my 1st gen phone it almost does the gps of the 3g with the bounce and then zoom. also i get this different icon for when it connects to gms for internet. a blue square with a white circle. but whatever everything works correctly including mail.app. is it that important to change to the other "real" firmware???

im gpnna switch to the larger firmware and see what happens
07-12-2008, 11:10 PM #78
Well, when I installed the leaked (larger filesize) firmware I was getting a lot of interface lag. Text messaging was very annoying, as it took a long time for letters to be entered.
I read about it on a few web sites, and they had similar issues, and they went away when they used the officially-released-through-iTunes 2.0 firmware.
So, I figured I'd go ahead and use it, too. And it erased everything. Neither 2.0 firmwares gave me the chance to make a backup, but oh well. It's all fine now.

well for those of bricks who may worry, don't. Apple is aware that they are at fault for this and will replace the iPhone at the store ( just went today with no appointment and got taken care of, they even tried to update the iPhone and it wouldn't work so they replaced the unit) reason has Been stated, 30 + countries trying to activate at once isn't the brightest idea, bit that's apple LOL
