    Default Which is better for 2g - Pwnage 3.0 or redsnow?
    I've been doing some searching and located on two tutorials to upgrade the original 2g iPhone to 3.0 and unlock/jailbreak for MAC

    Both use the same Boot loader files 3.9 and 4.6, but the instructions for Pwnage 3.0 seem a lot more involved (complicated) than the Redsn0w tutorial.

    My 2G is presently at 2.1 and was jailbroken/unlocked with Quikpwn. Does anyone have a preference for either methods and why?

    In previous posts on MMI, I had come across some discussions on backing up files using SSH and restoring those files to make the iPhone perform (1) faster and (2) allow you to keep Apps that you would have downloaded from Cydia and Installer (that typically an Apple upgrade would throw out) when you do an upgrade (eg 2.0 to 2.2)

    ANy opinions on doing this before moving up to the 3.0 ?

    Which side does the consensus stand as of now?

    Pwnage or Redsnow?

    PS: I am going from 8GB iPhone 2G 2.2 to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3.

    Doesn't matter. You're probably going to have to restore anyways because of the update to 3.1.3 from 2.0, so if I were you, I'd bake up an IPSW in pwnage tool and custom restore to it. Seriously it doesn't matter with the 2G, if you don't have access to a mac machine, just update to 3.1.3 vanilla and run redsn0w and it'll have the same affect.
    Pwnage tool is a bit more noob friendly, but they are both simple to use.
