    I tried this on a pwned iPhone 3G, option+restore resulted in a 2001 error. iTunes then recognizes the iPhone as being in DFU mode, then clicked option+restore, selected the custom firmware and it worked. pwnage tells you at the end of creating your firmware to put your iPhone in DFU mode.

    I also have 2.1 (via official update) and I'm downloading QuickPwn right now, i'll post updates and let you know how it turned out
    and pcuserforever: macs rule.

    UPDATE: It works likea charm, I had iPhone 3G 16GB with 2.1 official FW and i just quickPwned and it worked great, no problem, no app erasing no nothing, worked like a charm. Thanks a lot Dev Team.

    No, the last time us "poor" Windows users got it first.

    Makes you wonder if the Dev Team doesn't already have both sets and only release one at a time. Like Windows first one time, then Mac, then back to Windows, and again?

    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.

    Oops! Ya I think this was already brought up in the other 2.1 thread, not to mention when you install categories it gives you that warning as well. That can be a dangerous little app.

    Anyways, this was a nice surprise to wake to but waiting on Windows Vers.

    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.

    Hi
    What does the mobileinstallation file do?

    By the way I have a 2g phone with pwned 2.0 firmware. Do I just update to 2.1 in itunes 8 (so it is unlocked but not jailbroken) then use quickpwn to jailbreak again? Does this keep all my apps intact?
