    So have a 2G unlocked n JB on 1.1.4, not sure how as it was second hand. Can I just go from 1.1.4 to 2.2 and still keep unlock?

    Is there anything I need to be careful with as tbh just want unlocked 2.2 rather than jb 2.2?

    cheers

    Use PwnageTool to create a custom 2.2 firmware and restore to that. That's how you unlock now.

    do this: restore your iphone in itunes and that should update it to a fresh 2.2. Then download and run quickpwn, and the unlock will be back. Only use quickpwn if your iPhone is a 1st gen.

    Great thanks. So I just update with iTunes then use quickpwn on my Ali MacBook.

    This won't effect my stock 3 g iPhone? Should I restore from back up or just star again have unlock? I assume unlock and jb are the same thing?

    Why do you say that? I have used it plenty of times on the 3G.:)

    Sorry I mean to specify, don't use quickpwn with the 3G if you are interested in unlocking your phone in the future. because quickpwn doesn't preserve the baseband.

    You probably can with a DFU + restore, but why would you want to? You would lose all the extra goodies from the 2.0 update :(:D

    I have a slightly different situation, to be really specific, I've jailbroken my 2G phone after 2.0 came out, but never upgraded since the jailbreak. I want to upgrade from a jailbroken 2.0 to 2.2. Do I upgrade the software to 2.2 on itunes thereby locking it again and then use quickpwn, or do I have to do a restore from my latest itunes backup, or something else? Thanks.

    Upgrading to 2.2 through iTunes won't get rid of the unlock on your 2G, because the upgrade doesn't change the baseband. Just upgrade and run quickpwn it is that easy.
