ok I have a slight issue. I browsed around a bit and haven't seen this. Everything worked fine I'm on my jailbroken 2.0.1 iPhone I used vista. Now when I plug my iPhone in all it has for my phone is asking me to restore from my back up I already did this. And everything is on my phone. So I'm sooo lost. What is going on?

Edit: Didn't work. OK... But I did move it over to my laptop. Installed Winpwn, itunes (updated it) and started ALL over. I didn't check no wipe. First I got a 1601 (I think?) and then I pwnd itunes, and then tried it again, and it worked. It's strange, I know... But it worked. First try... while on my PC I did about 15 tries, and I know how to put my phone in DFU mode, I did it correctly every time, and still no luck. Ohh! I also set it to 512 like you said
Moved it to my lappy, and it worked, same OS (windows vista).

screw jailbreaking 2.0.1 my phone always ends up with no service. How can go back to 2.0?

I do not if this has been answered, but when I go to the downloads section of the MMi forums, which firmware should I download if I have a 2.0.1 iPod Touch. Would I download the 2.0.1 firmware for the 2G iPhone or what?

Same problem for me too.

How do you set it up as a new phone? I just syncd it with my itunes again (i installed the wnpwn 184.108.40.206 on a separate user account with a blank itunes first) and that took forever and none of my settings are saved as are none of the 3rd party apps, themes, or other additions. Is there a way to get these to transfer or do i have to do all this manualy every time?

if you restore the backup it wont undo the jailbreak but you may be stuck not able to change your wallpaper

Everything went fine, bumped up the partition to 750. Is everyone else getting only 6.8 GB left on an 8 GB phone? With no other apps installed?

Not sure if I'm allowed to post the link though, If I'm not, someone please remove it.

With itunes open and your phone at the locked/unlocked home screen.
Use the "ipwner" feature in winpwn to kill itunes. (select your custom ispw you created)
Reopen itunes then:
Hold Home+Power for 2 seconds after the screen goes black.
Release power still holding home
Release home once your pc and/or itunes picks up a phone "in recovery mode" or (ding dong) Screen should still be black at this point.
Now shift + restore with the custom ispw you created and pwned itunes with.
And btw Ziphone does put it into a "Soft DFU" Youll notice this when your screen with the itunes logo is actually a blue color not black. But never the less, it will not work for this process.

When you get that error leave the phone as it is, and reopen itunes and shift restore again. You might also try when it seems to hang unplug and replug into a diff usb

First time jailbreaking an iPhone.. not hard at all!
One weird thing I ran into was when selecting the custom logos, the one actually had a size issue (over 100kb) but it still showed up after the phone was pwned. Weird, but whatev
For those who are still confused about DFU, what made it easy for me was listening to the chime you hear when a USB is disconnected (WinXP). After I heard that I let go of the power button. Went into DFU first time.
Trying to sync up with my previous backups is not possible because of the software being "too old". I assume this is what is meant by activating your phone again, correct? I made sure my contacts and such were backed up.
I just had Cydia checked, still get my regular reception. Not bad!
