Iíve been using iPhone 2g running 1.1.4 unlocked and jailbreaked using Ziphone / iPlus. Buggy firmware 2.0 has been stopping me from upgrading. But finally after firmware 2.1 release, I’m convinced and upgraded. Its very simple process.
This process supports 2.1 firmware with the unlocking and jailbreaking of iPhone 1st generation (2G) device. Supports the jailbreaking of iPod Touch 1st generation device and iPhone 3G.
- - It does NOT support the unlocking of iPhone 3G
- - It does NOT support the jailbreaking of second generation iPod Touch introduced last week
Applications Required for Upgrading, Jailbreak, Unlocking iPhone 2g 3g
- iTunes 8.0 ( Direct Apple Link )
- Windows QuickPwn 2.1 ( Download technoh.net, fidunderground.com, torrent )
- Boot Loaders 3.9 and 4.6 ( Download )
The Simple Guide to Unlock, Jailbreak
