    Why would you want to install Windows? Had it on 3 different phones and all had problems. The biggest problem I had with Windows was crashing and locking up for no reason. Apple mini OS X is much better.

    yo so what i dont get is cant apple, when 2.0 or 1.2 whatever you want to call it comes out, just make that little exploit in the lower levels of the bootloader fixed so that this doesnt work anymore? i mean apple will lock us out again? or is this one unstoppable?

    Not that I necessarily want Windows (Though the ability use WindowsMobile apps would be kinda cool)....but a different OS other than the one it's using...Just a general question. By the way I have always had Windows Phones and have never had one single issue with the software, just the hardware.

    Oh no, you're iPhone breaks or something happens. You can:

    1- Restore
    2- Jailbreak/Unlock
    3- Re-install apps

    or

    1- Restore using a custom firmware pre-unlock, pre-jailbroken, and with a selection of choice apps you want on your phone.

    Now choose.

    I'm curious if you will be able to save your phone modded in its current state (like right now my phone is on 1.1.4 fully macked out and loaded with apps, themes, fixes, etc...) or start from scratch with a new stock firmware and customize it to where you are now and then save that one. Sure would be nice to extract an already customized firmware from the phone. Or is that even possible?

    That's the significance of this feature It will make things a lot easier. Simply plug it w/ itunes .. shift click to the .ispw and you will upgrade to the latest version with your current jailbroken state.

    might we get to the stage where we wouldnt need itunes?
    The reason I ask is I wonder if itunes may stop us being able to shift click?

    Ok, question. If this is true, will you still have all your contacts/apps/etc and just the latest firmware will be added. I have a 1.1.2 jailbroken phone that I dont want to upgrade because i dont need the google map thingy and damn it, i just love my phone the way it is without having to relearn/redo any thing. So, will everything I have done to my phone stay the same except for the firmware ( and I assume the bootloader will also remain the same??). If this is true, damn I cant wait!!!

    Exactly. And judging by the response rate i'm anticipating there will be many of us in these forums who will post there own .ispw creations and have them available for the public. For example if you want to have a full 1.1.4 version with OpenSSH, BSD Subsystem, CameraPro & iSnake preinstalled without going on installer you can do so.

    There are always ways to get around shift clicking

    I hear ya on that. I hate having to reinstall programs and everything and the music takes forever!

    Zinjen, Its nice to think that there will be lots of people posting their own pre modded .ipsw files on modmyi.com but as its been stated earlier in this thread that its illegal for modmyi.com to host these files, wont it also be illegal for modmyi.com members to host these file in the forums as its still indirectly hosting within this site?

    Also I agree with Reeko on the argument that a pre modded .ipsw is not that much of a use at the moment because if you think about it, how long does it take to do a full hack on the iPhone with ZiPhone 2.5, it took me about the same time as to go and make a cup of tea and a couple of slices of toast one morning and it takes maybe 3 - 4 minutes to do a restore/upgrade through iTunes. Also the more applications/files you add to the modded .ipsw file the longer it will take to restore/upgrade.

    I still think this is an amazing breakthrough in development for the iPhone but at the moment its easier just to use ZiPhone although I feel that if the 1.2 software proves to be extremely hard to jailbreak, unlock & activate then the modded .ipsw route will be much easier and safer to do.
