Thread: Upgrading to 3.0 on a 2g Iphone running 2.1

    Default Upgrading to 3.0 on a 2g Iphone running 2.1
    Hey guys, I have an unlocked/jailbroken 2g Iphone running firmware 2.1 and I want to update to 3.0 as soon as possible to get all the new features. I'm hesitant because I'm worried I may lose the unlock. Can I update my phone to 3.0 safely? Will it remain activated after the update? Thanks in advance!

    I've uploaded to 3.0 from 2.2.1 without any problems (2g). I've lost any jailbreaking obviously but my phone is still unlocked. Hopefully I'll be able to JB again tomorrow.......

    when you upgrade to 3.0 on a 2g running 2.1 does the unlock and activation remain I.e. Can you use your phone with any carrier or does your phone lock and you have to activate it using iTunes . Isn't there any software like qpwn to unlock , jailbreak and activate ??

    Any help is appreciated .

    Yep. All I did was hit upgrade in iTunes. I've noticed since that Youtube isn't working.

    can you send a link? i thought when you uprade you have to reactivate the phone otherwise you get that screen where you can only make emergency phone calls. i'd like to upgrade to 3.0 but don't have an iphone account to reactive the phone if it locks.

    i get that the sim unlock remains, which is cool.

    ok, it doesn't work! it keeps the sim unlock, which is great, but now my phone requires activation, which I can't do since i don't have an iphone account. SUX!
