Is there anyone who can tell me how to downgrade a first generation iPhone to IOS 1.0? I know it won't be very usefull but it'll be fun for nostalgic reasons to see what it would look like. I have found some links online but I can't tell if they will work. Has anyone here tried?

And what are the risks? Is there a chance that I'll damage it permanently?

I followed this very video a while back and it's a loooooot of work. I don't remember which step stumped me but I remember stopping at one point and thinking "this is way more trouble than it's worth".

Keep us posted though. I'd like to see how it goes for you.

OK, I think I will try it. I got the 1.0 backupfile and was thinking that I'd just use that in iTunes downgrade but some say I won't be able to downgrade that far. I will try.

Did you have to use a special version of iTunes when you followed it. And what happened when you gave up? Did the phone still work?
