    yeah, restore. That'll put you on 2.1, and then you can jailbreak & unlock with quickpwn.

    If your 1.1.4, you definetely have the 2g.

    Yes, you need to restore from DFU. And either upgrade the firmware cause 2.1 is way better (buts its personal preference, you can stay at 1.1.4) or restore to 1.1.4.

    Then, jailbreak again. Dont use ziphone if you upgrade though.

    ok so i should restore with 1.1.4 and then upgrade to 2.1?
    which way of jailbreaking do you suggest other than ziphone

    do i just hit restore in itunes or do the "shift" and then select 1.1.4 firmware

    Just upgrade straight to 2.1 -> "Upgrade"

    Then use either Pwnage or Quickpwn for the jailbreak (search em, there on here)

    it all depends man, if you're happy with 1.1.4, then just shift restore and unlock the way you did before. If you want to upgrade then you'd need quickpwn to jailbreak it. Google it.

    bah.. You never get tired of beating me, hunh?

    Leave it at Itunes8....if your going to firmware 2.1, older versions of itunes wont recognize that firmware....

    And even if your not....you can still use Itunes8

    ok im having some problems
    i just upgraded to itunes 8 and open quickpwn but i get a msg saying "this version of quickpwn can only jailbreak devices with versions >=2.0"
    did i get this msg because before i restored my phone with itunes 7 and it only restored my iphone to 1.1.4??
    do i have to restore my iphone again in itunes 8?

    Listen, to use quickpwn, your phone has to be on 2.x.

    Bro, let me make a suggestion.

    Read carefully and learn before you try this stuff or you could end up with a pretty paper-weight.

    Dont try it if you dont understand it.
