    Has anyone been successful in upgrading to 2.2 from a jailbroken 3G?

    If so, is there any special way you have to do it (i.e. restore first, etc.)

    How are there no comments on this yet?

    Probably because most hackers are too busy using their phones to waste time on macrumors.

    I just upgraded my inactive jailbroken 2G iPhone through iTunes.

    Upgrade went smooth, but my jailbreak is gone. Last update did not do this. 2.1 upgraded AROUND my hack last time.

    NOTE: THIS IS 1ST GEN, NON ACTIVE (meaning no service) IPhone. Its basically a 4 gig ipod touch. With 2.2 :D

    the podcast download and sync is almost enough for me to go back to a regular phone, but the download anything and video recorder is enough to keep me to stay, I'm sure everything will be figured out soon enough, just sucks waiting, lol

    I wonder how fast the jailbreak turn around will be.

    I've been wanting direct podcast downloads ever since I heard of Podcaster. Now I'm hoping the dev team gets that new tool out quickly. I wish I was a beta tester, I hate waiting.

    Agreed. This firmware doesn't add enough to warrant a upgrade and reconfigure all my JB setings and apps.

    I'm pretty excited for JB2.2! I've grown so used to the JB apps and I don't think I could ever go back. I JB'd my phone right after I got it, so I had barely any experience with it stock.

    Anyone know much about the baseband update for this? Did people get less dropped calls or whatever? I get a lot and I am planning on staying with AT&T so I'm thinking I might do the baseband upgrade.

    Now this only indicates that if you upgrade now you may not be able to soft unlock in the future.

    For those of us that just want to JB, it should be ok to do the 2.2 update. Sure we will lose our JB settings, but dont you do anyways if we re-jailbreak? I have always restored, updated then jailbroke.

    maybe I haven't kept up with the JB scene but I thought the 3g phones couldn't be unlocked anyway correct? I thought the 3g could only be JB and that's it. So what the iPhone dev site is talking about are mainly the 2g phones can't be soft unlocked in the future if people restore in iTunes?

    You're correct, I think the DEV team is just making sure you know that when they do unlock the 3G you could have issues if you upgrade too early.

    gotcha thanks :) I'm debating upgrading or not. The reason is because I just like having the latest and greatest. It's true you do restore it back to default settings before you JB but I recall you want to do it with a clean firmware with no apps installed. When I JBd mine that had a Ton of apps, songs etc. It caused the phone to freeze (or something like that). I could have been doing it wrong though since it was my first time using quickpwn. :p

    I'm thinking about going to 2.2 now, as well. I'm unconcerned about unlocking (I'm in a three year with my providern anyway), and really want to have email working properly, again... I even think I can do without jailbreaking, for a while (as long I can eventually JB). Depending on how quick the DEV team is, I may go this route over the weekend (to have email working before the next work week).

    Anyone go from JB 2.1 > stock 2.2, yet? Did it go smoothly?

    Yes, downloaded update, put it in the iTunes folder. Synced my iPhone and then performed a backup (redundant but I'm anal, k). Ctrl click (or is it option click) the restore button, picked the new 2.2 firmware and off it went. Took about 20 min and then a couple to restore from backup. the full sync took another hour or so. No muss, no fuss.

    I have to say it.... it really IS snappier... sorry. :D

    does it matter if we use the newest itunes or not? i thought i remember reading an article about how the new macbooks have the latest itunes which tries to stop JB'ing but not detecting DFU?

    Sorry for the double post but does this mean that I can update my 1st Generation unlocked iPhone to 2.2?

    Thanks!

    do you want it to stay unlocked? cuz if you do sounds like you'll need to wait.

    If you have 2.0 or 2.1, you should be o.k for the unlock but you will lose the JB.
