    Well, I upgraded alright. Now my phone is stuck in an infinite reboot / vibrate mode. It has rebooted 9 times now and just sits here vibrating in pulses over and over and over and over. The loading icon pops up on the apple screen but freezes, then it reboots, then it does it all again.

    As far as an update from a JB 2.0.1 3G device, straight to 2.1 upgrade from itunes 8, with back up works 100% it took about 45 min to completely back up my device but after that it took about 5-10 min to install 2.1 and everything is running 100% (not JBed)


    It Is What It Is...

    Download the 2.0.2 firmware for your phone (there are seperate firmwares for 2g & 3g) from the downloads sections @ the top of this site.

    Go into iTunes and sync your iphone, hold down the shift button and click Restore. It will allow you to browse your computer for the firmware instead of automatically downloading the latest.

    Hit the thanks button buddy

    Confirmed as well, No issue in losing Activation and Unlock. Phone is running infinitely better than before, and the battery life truly is improved greatly. This is on another phone from a friend, not mine. (cant live without a JB)

That wouldnt be something i'd want to advertise honestly.

    Most thieves could care less about your information on the phone especially when they can get 200 to 600 for the phone itself.
    word, now everyone with an iphone will be a bigger target. And I think AT&T will let you activate a wiped iphone. So its better to steal one and put the wrong password in it. LOL What a joke.

    Yeah, the correct access code to Field Test is *3001#12345#*
    Your signal strength will replace your carrier info. on the top status bar.
