Also ive tired creating a custom 2.0.1 ispw, with winpwn, and right at like 75% winpwn shut off, i dont understand why or what im doing wrong, i think if i can get someone to make a custom ispw with boonuter and cydia i could get my iphone to work. If someone out there can make me one i would really apperiate it. Thank you or have any solutions.

if i already have a jailbroken 2.0, do i have to restore everything and start from scratch?
i mean, do i have to reinstall all my apps, fix my safari bookmarks, add my music back, put back my winterboard theme, etc..

OK i figured it out. It was the dfu mode part that was teh problem. I tired to get into dfu for an hour until it finally gave up and did it. Then i just pwn my itunes with the custom ispw and i did a restore of the new firmware and boom i m now good. Thanks for all the help guys.

anybody have an answer? can you upgrade the firmware without having to start from scratch?

I keep getting error 1 when I try to restore useing my custom fw. I'm pretty sure i'm getting in dfu mode. I'm holding the sleep and home button for about 10 seconds then letting go of the sleep button and holding the home button then itunes says that my phone is in recovery mode. My phone screen is staying black this whole time too and I know that it is supposed to do that. then i hit shift and select my custom fw but then it says that i'm getting the error 1 message. what am I doing wrong??? thanks in advance for any help.

do i need to update to itunes 7.7 before upgrading my 2g iphone to 2.0.1?
WHen i bought the phone (pre jailbroken 1.1.4) on ebay it had a note saying never update itunes version when prompted as it will brick the phone...?

Help please, I'm trying to upgrade from a succesfully pwned 2.0 firmware (done using pwnagetool on Mac) to 2.0.1 using winpwn. I created the custom firmware exactly as described in the guide, increasing the root partition size to 602 mb as winpwn would crash otherwise. I now have a custom firmware file.
I then tried to kick my iphone into DFU mode. I read several places that if the screen is blank, the phone is in DFU mode. iTunes says the phone is in recovery mode and I then shift+click on restore and select my custom firmware file. iTunes starts unpacking and then tells me its "preparing the iPhone for recovery"... While this is displayed, my iPhone suddenly displays the logo i chose for booting in winPwn?! after a while a progress wheel appears at the bottom of the screen, and then after a few minutes iTunes says "restoring iphone", BUT ONLY for a couple of seconds, then it says unknown error 6.
Everyone is saying error 6 happens when the phone is not in DFU mode but my screen was blank when I started so how could it not be in DFU mode? Unless it somehow kicked itself OUT of dfu mode since the boot screen is now on it... sigh... help please!

im kind of a newb to jailbreaking. my apologies in advance...
This is where i'm at:
I have a pwn'd 3G running 2.0 and a windows laptop. How can I upgrade to 2.1 while keeping my phone jailbroken? Is this possible? Do I have to virginize, then upgrade, then pwn? This guide is awesome but I'm still unclear if it will work with my current setup. If anyone can shed some light on what route to take I'd really (really) appreciate it. thanks. and again, awesome guide.
-also, if someone could link me a guide on how to keep/backup my apps i'd really appreciate it. i've been looking all day. thanks agian

I still have 1.1.4 on my old iphone and I was waiting on the new installer because I did not want to lose my pysl. Are the initial steps the same minus the restore firmware since I already have 1.1.4 on my phone or do I need to restore and upgrade to the 2.01 firmware first?
