FYI - If you are Jailbroken 2.0.2 and updating to 2.1:make sure that if have app store apps in categories folders, remove the apps in categories before updating, otherwise the apps will be installed and you will not be apble to see\access them on 2.1.
I'm restoring right now.

Lol its pretty straight forward guys... don't just hit restore button.. at the end of the pwnage tool it states close that app THEN ... PHYSICALLY enter restore mode (Press Home button and Power button together for 10 seconds, then it will fade and turn black - switch off... still holding the home and power button... then the apple logo will appear... the phone is powering up... at this stage imediently let go off the power button but yet STILL holding down on the home button...)
It then will say in iTunes that you need to restore the iPhone etc etc... at this stage... THIS IS WHEN YOU HIT > ALT + CLICK on RESTORE and find your custom .ipsw firmware..
It is as easy as A, B, C :mrgreen:
I have successfully created custom firmware for 2.1 for iPhone 3G and now restored my data
damm the signal for reception is SOLID!! however wifi doesn't want to show up for me.. stuck with 3G logo on the top... we shall see after a restore... hmm

I think I just F'd up. I did an update using the Firmware that was posted in the first post. Everything went fine, but when my phone restarted, it would freeze and just vibrate every few seconds.
