    Default 2.2.1 Breaks 3g Unlock, Does Not Break Jailbreak Method
    MuscleNerd of iphone-dev has been updating us via his twitter account with some info about firmware 2.2.1 which was released yesterday.
    • 2.2.1 does not break the dev team's methods of jailbreak.
    • 2.2.1 breaks the 3g software unlock
    • 2.2.1 does not break iPhone 2G unlock since the 2G baseband is not updated.
      (it hasn't been updated for 8 months)
      Don't Upgrade yet though . . .
    For anyone that wants/needs to unlock the iPhone 3g do not update to 2.2.1 until the dev team releases a method (i.e. PwnageTool) for a 2.2.1 jailbreak/upgrade. If you upgrade to 2.2.1 your baseband will be upgraded and it is unclear if/when you will be able to unlock.

    Also, check out MuscleNerd's video "2.2.1 and you"

    i think because it has to stay tethered to the computer while on to stay jail broken. in other words it is now non mobile...

    Well other than the fact that they only like releasing things that are complete and usable by anyone without errors/bad side effects etc . . .

    #1 Who absolutely needs it?
    #2 How would they determine and verify who absolutely needs it if there are actually ppl that absolutely need it?

    wait until the dev team releases a tool to jailbreak your phone.

    The update isn't anything special from what I can see, so people just need to use some patience. I could see if it added some features, but it doesn't.

    Default Downgrade a 2.2.1
    Confirmed Looks like you can downgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.2 and unlock for the 1st Generation iPhone.
    Going to update back to 2.2.1 with unlock for the hell of it will report if it stays unlocked.

    ^^^Since there is no baseband update for the 1st gen, it won't affect the unlock. Been mentioned many times (even in the first post)

    Is it safe to upgrade a 2G Unlocked iPhone? I figured it was since the baseband is not updated, but Cash said not to upgrade yet. Is that only for 3G iPhone users?



    Edit: Nevermind, this is why people should read every post before posting.

    dude, sure u can upgrade. but how are u going to activate the phone as the current jailbreaking tool are not compatble with the firmare. upgrading the firmware will remove the jailbreak and apps

    I guess it'll break the jailbreak anyway if I update from 2.1 to 2.2.1 ?

    2.2.1 is a worthless upgrade
    there is no reason to upgrade
    and for the people that still dont get it
    2.2.1 WILL BREAK YOUR JAILBREAKE AND FOR 3G USERS WILL BREAK YOUR UNLOCK AS IT CHANCES THE BASEBAND
    FOR 2G USERS IF WILL BREAK YOUR JAILBREAK BUT IT WONT BREAK YOUR UNLOCK AS IT DOESN'T MODIFY THE BASEBAND
    i dont see why ppl think they have to upgrade there phone every time apple brings out a upgrade just wait till the dev team spins there magic and comes out with the tools

    About the 2G ipod touch...
    Whats a 'tethered jailbreak'?

    And also, why has the 2g ipod touch been so hard to jailbreak? What's different software wise about it then the 1G iPodT, 2 and 3G iphones?
