    Default NEW how to jailbreak iphone (getting around the jailbreak detector)
    (this tutorial has been done with a mac, not sure if it will work for windows)

    if you have been getting "error 1600" or any other error code while jailbreaking iphone 2.0, 2.0.1, or 2.0.2, pleas read the following

    the new update with itunes 8 has made it difficult to jailbreak your iphone or ipod touch. it detects jailbroken firmware. i just recently found a way to jailbreak your iphone or ipod touch even with itunes 8. First you need pwnage tool (for mac) or winpwn (windows) ill link them at the bottom of this post. secondly you need to make your own jailbroken firmware using pwnage tool or winpwn. the way itunes detects jailbroken firmware is apparently done through the internet. you need to have an internet connection to access your iphone. put your phone into recovery mode and once itunes recognizes it, turn wifi off. then restore your iphone or ipod touch by holding the (option/alt key for mac, shift key for windows) and select your jailbroken firmware and your device should restore normally!

    i just now upgraded to a jailbroken 2.1 using pwnage tool, go to the address at the bottom of this post and on the right corner click on the "next" button and see the screenshots i took while i was upgrading from 2.0.2 to a 2.1 unlocked and jailbroken.
