Then again, if you are using your iPhone with a carrier that officially supports the iPhone, then you do not really have a need to Pwn your iPhone.

I have an iPhone on 1.1.3 with 4.6BL OOTB that I jailbroke and unlocked with ZiPhone 2.4. Do I need to upgrade to 1.1.4 first? And do I need to re-virginize my iPhone first before doing the 2.0 upgrade? I'm also concerned that the instructions needs the 3.9BL files... which implies that my iPhone's BL will be downgraded from the factory-installed 4.6BL. Isn't that a problem? Thanks in advance.

I am trying to run Pwnage 2.0.1 to unlock my iPhone 1st Gen 1.1.4. I have a new 3G so I'm not worried what happens to the contents of this iPhone. I have not hacked it before.
I go through the Bootneuter/Cydia/Custom Logos steps and at the point where it says BUILD rather than get the Bootloader dialog windows up, it takes me to a dialog window asking me to save the custom .ispw file.
Should I just continue with the ispw save or should I expect to see the Bootloader boxes? If so, where might have I gone wrong along the way?

I'm having a real hard time here, hopefully someone can help.
I have a 1st gen 8gb Iphone. Was flashed to 2.0 firmware with no sim no unlock no nothing. Using the pwnage tool on mac, seemed to work well. Got it into DFU no problem and restored it (specifying for it to flash to baseband 4.6)
Whenever I have anything but a stock firmware file in there... it will not boot up. It gets to the apple loading icon and restarts, trys again for a few seconds and restarts. over and over. I have tried simple mode, expert mode. Everything I can think of and it doesn't work.
any advice on what to do. I have followed these instructions to the letter and no luck
Follow and check all steps and all will work.
=== Pre-upgrade Checks ===
1. Restore your iPhone with the Original & Official Apple iphone 2.0 software.
2. Phone will be "emergency" only status.
=== Device Support Folder === (2.0.1 should solve this but check it anyway )
1. Open Finder
2. Goto "Mac HD"
3. Goto "Library" and then to "Itunes"
4. If "Device Support" EXISTS - open folder and delete everything in there.
5. If "Device Support" folder doesn't exist - create a new folder called "Device Support"
=== Download Bootloaders ===
1. You need both 3.9 and 4.6 (available via 100s of links on this page - particularly at the top)
=== Upgrade Steps ===
1. Open up the pwned 2.0
2. Goto EXPERT MODE - if you use simple mode you will get errors 6, 20, 1600, 1601 etc and it will NOT work
3. Select the 2.0 firmware and also select relevant *.bins
4. When get to main menu screen, go into Bootnetuer and select "Update Bootloader" and select "4.6"
5. Go back to main menu and enter General Settings --> select Enable Baseband Update
6. Then build the firmware and save it to your desktop
7. Once the firmware is built, pwned will ask you to plug in your iphone via USB.
8. It will then step you through the process of enter DFU mode
9. Once this is complete it will ask you to boot up itunes (when you plugged you phone in it may have already loaded)
10. Hold down ALT (on MAC) and select the firmware on your desktop
11. iPhone will update - LEAVE IT for the entire process.
12. It should install and all will work
=== If DFU Fails ===
1. Plug iPhone into USB & then TURN OFF (connected obviously :P)
2. Hold the power and home buttons at the same time for 10 secs
3. Release power button and continue holding home button
4. iTunes will recognize the phone in "Restore Mode"
5. Hit "Option/ALT" key and click restore.
6. Select the firmware on your desktop
7. Await 2.0 love (feel free to drink a beer at this point)
Getting pretty frustrated, at least I can get it back to stock without too much pain

It worked :-) Thanks again for your advice.
Carried it all out step by step and the O2 sim I had in there from another phone is all up and running. I've not made a call yet but it looks promising.
I've clicked on Cydia and it's asked me to do essential upgrades which I have chosen to do and it's certainly taking a long time. I assume this is normal?
07-22-2008, 08:33 PM #71Apple symbol only (looping) on start up
Don't bother reading I found the answer above....
This question is for anyone that had used ziphone to unlock their 1G iphone, then used the update and pwnage 2.1 to load the 2.0 software.
I do everything that was asked but now, all I get is the phone restarting and then the apple symbol (I unticked the pineapple) then in flashes off then restarts and continues to do this.
I even tried redoing all the steps in Pwnage, but I can no longer point to the bootloaders it just jumps to the step of where do you want the custom file stored. I have downloaded another version of 3.9 and 4.6 and was hoping to try it again. I have tried deleting the program (Pwnage) and re downloading it but to no avail. I just keep getting told where do I want to store the custom Bin's. Does anyone have a clue where pwnage stores the bin files so it does not ask you for them ever again. I have a family of 1G iphones and I need to update the lot...

I also don't have safari, I should have mentioned it in my previous post. I just assumed it was an edge thing. Is anyone experiencing a problem with edge after upgrading to 2.0? Again, I have the Tzone data plan with Tmobile. All worked prior to upgrade???

I presume you received these Bootloader files were from the link in the guide here.
The possible explanation for your problem is that the original firmware (IPSW) file is not the version Pwnage Tool expects. Did you download that using the link from this guide here? Or did you receive it from Apple via iTunes? Have you confirm this IPSW is in the correct location on your Mac?

I remembered that the general request to have prefix allocation of space for the system. What would be recommended? I set only 500mb... Should I reinstall the 2.0 firmware with 1gb allocation?
