Thread: Downgrading 2G iPhone FW 2.0.2 to FW 2.0.1

  1. #1
    Default Downgrading 2G iPhone FW 2.0.2 to FW 2.0.1
    Great, so I have a brand new unactivated iPhone 2G (from an apple warranty return) and wanted to unlock by upgrading to FW 2.0.1 and then using Pwnage 2.0.1. Unfortunately I didn't realize what I was doing and upgraded all the way to the new iPhone FW 2.0.2. I've tried to downgrade by putting the phone into recovery mode and restoring by finding the 2.0.1 update in the library/itunes. It crashes with an error almost instantly. Is it possible to downgrade to FW 2.0.1 from FW 2.02.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    It probably will be doable but not until someone figures out if you can do it with this version of itunes. My guess would be to use pwnage tool and put your phone in DFU mode and install the custom 2.0.1 firmware built with pwnage tool. This should bring you back down to 2.0.1. Try it out and let me know if it worked.

    try putting the phone in DFU mode first. Dont get mixed up your iphone will look like its turned of when in DFU mode with a black screen. You will se a cable and itunes message when in recovery mode.

    Theres a post on here telling you how to jailbrake FW2.0,2 check out new posts and you should find it.
