Yes! Took about an 45 minutes to an hour. It is all about timing with Pwng. Great work! I'm currently restoring my backup from my jailbroken 1.1.4 8GB iPhone 1st Gen. Very excited to see Installer and App Store running side by side. Thanks!

Having problems with the Caller ID working; matching the incoming calls to the entries in my Contacts on the phone.
Do we have to update the AppSupport file again?

i've spent over five hours, reran pwnage 2.0.1 five times, cant get into dfu, even with terminal, read and reread all the various threads... no success... had a ziphone unlocked 1st gen on 1.1.4 never had an issue, never a restore... this is depressing cant even go back to 1.1.4 at this moment
GREAT SUCCESS!!! (doing best Borat impression) don't know how, but it worked... here's to 3 hours sleep before work

Itunes is now asking me if I want to update the carrier settings for my phone. I guess the phone is pwned so should be good?
07-21-2008, 05:52 AM #46
The "Update Carrier Settings" is part of the iTunes 7.7 feature. If you allow it to download the latest Carrier Settings, you will find a new folder at ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Carrier Support/
This folder will contain the new carrier settings for the Apple's carrier partners in your country.
They contains default APN settings, MobileSafari bookmark entries, default weather cities and default stock entries in the Stock application.
I do not believe there are any information that will cause you newly pwned iPhone to be "carrier locked".
It appears from one of my readers of my blog, Apple is indeed using IMEI information to "carrier lock" iPhone 3G using iTunes.
Hopefully this information will help the iPhone Dev Team figure out a iPhone 3G unlock.

1st Step: Then i upgrade my itunes to 7.7.
2nd Step: I choose "download only" option during firmware update notification.
3rd Step: Then i used pwnage 2.0 to create custom firmware.
4th Step: put my phone in recovery mode & restore it with custom firmware. thats it.
Note: There is nothing to do with 1.1.4 firmware file to perform above steps.

for all those having problems getting in DFU mode just like me use ziphone..it worked for me then restore it using the custom FW

About to upgrade to 2.0 using this method, but before I do, what should I expect in terms of my phone after the upgrade? Will I still have all my photos/music/videos/contacts? Are there any backups I should make? Also, if I am not mistaken, Installer will NOT be on 2.0, as it's being replaced by Cydia?
07-21-2008, 01:46 PM #52Bootloader doesn't appear
I'm having a problem.
As I followed whatever the guide said, I was suppose to come across this thing where that Bootloader questions (the pink pop-ups) is suppose to appear after I click on the blue arrow after I click on the Build icon. But it doesn't appear and instead it brings me straight to the Building IPSW process. Need help ASAP. Thanks

Thank you Dev team. Awesome job. I t took some time but I got the 2.0 to work. YEAH : )
Is anyone having issue with YouTube?

What you should do is synchronize your iPhone in iTunes before you perform the Pwnage. As you are correct, you should not be restoring the setting from your iPhone with the previous firmware after the Pwnage.
Your muisc/photos/contacts will not be lost because they are all on your Mac.
PS: you should remember that the copies on your Mac is the Master copy and the ones on the iPhone are just copies you carry around. Not vice versa.
What you will loose are your SMS messages, Notes, Network settings and any preference for your 3rd party applications installed on your iPhone prior to Pwnage. This is because you are not restoring the settings after the Pwnage is done.
Having said that you should be choosing to set up a new iPhone rather than restoring a previous backup version of your iPhone.
Afterwards you can then synchronize all the desire content back from your Mac using iTunes.
07-21-2008, 09:22 PM #57Upgrade to 2.0 normally first?
Another guide, by Big Boss:
» Pwnage 2.0 Guide - iPhone News & Review
suggests to restore to 2.0 normally first via iTunes if you are at 1.1.4 or lower. Since many other people are reporting issues, I'm thinking of doing this first, especially since I used Ziphone to unlock my 1.1.4. Any reasons not to do it, if even I'm just doing it for grits and shins?
07-21-2008, 09:39 PM #58Question [Restore in iTunes Pwnage 2 Step]
I was not fast enough to hold the "option Key" in iTunes restore process.
A few months ago I had to do the same task, but I do not remember how.
Can someone please tell me how to restore the iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw.
I assume that even tough I will do the restore at a later time the results will be the same.

when is the windows version going to be out? any ideas..
07-21-2008, 10:12 PM #60
same "can't enter dfu mode bla bla" - in fact, I can't prevent itunes from taking over pwnage tool during the 10 seconds you have to hold the power button; while doing this, I presume that itunes detects the device and that pwnage "looses" it ... Does anyone have an idea of how to prevent itunes from launching automatically ?
