  1. #1
    Default 2G iphone upgrade advice need!
    I have 2G Iphone running 2.1 OS, want to upgrade to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 OS.

    It previously jailbreak and unlock using PwnageTool on mac.

    Now i want to know if i want to upgrade my iphone 2G OS. what is the Best Tool?

    There are so many tools out there, redsnow, snowbreeze, PwnageTool...etc.

    (i can access both mac and pc, so any tool is ok as long as it easy and safe).

    Also, when i upgrade, do i need to go from 2.1 > 3.1.2 first then from 3.1.2 > 3.1.3? or it can go straight from 2.1 > 3.1.3?


    Thanks

    Since you were previously pwned then you should be able upgrade using a custom firmware. Especially since you have access to a MAC.

    I have always had trouble with that, but a lot of other people have had success. I'm clearly in the minority on this.

    On the other hand if that does not work for you, since you have access to Mac

    Upgrade using iTunes to 3.1.2 and then create a custom firmware with Pwnage to you specifications and then restore using that custom build.

    I know it is a hassle doing the restore 2x but that is the way I get it to work for me.

    I would definitely try the custom build direct restore first as to cut out the extra step of restoring twice.

    these directions are just for 2G iPhone.

    if you upgrade as qnc said to official 3.1.2 there is no need to create a custom ipsw and restore again to that...just use redsn0w 0.9.2 to jailbreak and unlock after the restore....

    thanks for the info

    so do i need to worry about bootrom or baseband that kinda of issue?

    and should i upgrade to 3.1.2 first and then upgrade to 3.1.3?

    thanks again!

    also does it matter what version of itune software i use for restore?

    no need to worry about baseband or bootrom with the 2g...I think everything but the newest iTunes will be fine
