    Now, I know this QuickPwn program doesn't support direct upgrading from inside the program (or ipsw creation, rather). But does anyone know if the upcoming PwnageTool is going to support upgrading without restoring? I think I remember reading that it would somewhere, my main reason in asking is because I don't want to have to reinstall my Jailbreak apps again and setup all my Customize stuff from scratch.

    And another question, if I do wait until the new PwnageTool is released and decide to make a custom ipsw with NO baseband update, are the supposed "reception fixes" going to take any effect on my iPhone 3G? Or would the baseband have to be updated to get those so called fixes?

    Thanks,

    3G user here and quickpwn works fine.
    I used the 2.0.1 trick and now this new version.
    Both work totally safe.

    Same here, but what i noticed is both FW's 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 ran fast and smooth like there supposed to. But as soon as i jailbroke and added apps thats when my phone slowed down and texting got slower and apps open slower. So a fresh iphone runs fast and smooth and an iphone with lots of apps whether jailbroke or not runs like a 20g dell laptop, like the one im typing on now. So what i'm saying is, It's going to happen no matter what apple does.

    This wont brick your 3G.
    But if you want to unlock your 3G phone in the future then don't update because the 2.0.2 update includes a baseband update for the 3G iPhone.
    QuickPWN works fine with 3G.

    Yeah I had the same issue, so I put my phone in DFU and shift + restore to the 2.0.2 (OEM) I downloaded from BigBoss. its just finishing the software restore now.

    edit: verifying, and now finishing....
    Quickpwn Edit: I am running on 2.0.2 jailbroken, and unlocked. Great job Dev Team that was quick and painless. Now for a backup restore in itunes.

    Vista Home, QuickPwn GUI, (2) 8GB 1st Gen. iPhones, Downloaded OEM 2.0.1 and 2.0.2
    Used 2.0.1 to set up quickpwn to pwn 2.0.2 everything is great, I am seeing a big big change in how smooth the phone operates now. Full bars as usual. EDGE seems a bit faster.(TMobile)

    Note: What I posted above regarding how the phone runs is after getting it all set up with all 3rd party apps. etc everything back to normal.

    If you can't find it just do a search for 2.0.2 and it will find it.

    1.1.4 was never slow no matter what was installed on it. apple just doesn't care if there customers aren't happy anymore. Not that they ever did.

    I think if they do something with that option it would be really good because after you personalize your iPhone with your stuff and the Poof desapearing you got to download it again!

    I successfully upgraded to 2.0.2, but I can't seem to find this firmware file in order to jailbreak with quickwn. When I open quickpwn I select iphone & the next page asks me to "browse for firware." I tried downloading the 2.0.2 from the download section but it won't work.

    Any help is appreciated.

    If you guys are having trouble restoring to the factory 2.0.2 Try downloading it from BigBoss, and put your phone into DFU then shift + restore. works like a charm. It appears to hang on preparing software but no fear, it takes about 10 minutes to restore.

    As for the folks who arent sure when to release the home key while using quickpwn, i waited till the pc chimed; seemed longer than 30 seconds, but i waited till then. The process completed 100% but sat for a while, I still held way past that. Its working on both phones flawlessly now.


    Edit: Remember, even though you are going up to 2.0.2 you still have to load the 2.0.1 factory firmware in quickpwn to do it.

    So upgrade via itunes to 2.0.2. Then download 2.0.1 in quickpwn. Will all be OK going from 1.1.4 to 2.0.2 in itunes? Will the phone remain unlocked. Using 2G iphone.

    i dont know what you mean by that edit, i loaded 2.0.2 into quickpwn and it worked just fine, my itouch is on 2.0.2, jailbroken and cydia and installer. im now syncing all my apps/music back onto it, and everythings fine

    Yes the phone will remain unlocked, youll just need to jailbreak it with the quickpwn gui process.

    Like i said above if you get an error trying the standard way of updating to 2.0.2 try what I posted..
