    I'm just clarifying this. I have a jailbroken iPhone 3g on 2.0.2.

    To update to a newer firmware (jailbreak), I restore the phone and update it when its not jailbroken, then using pwnage I make an IPSW file and restore with that?

    With the new update on pwnage I can jailbreak with iTunes I've heard.


    Thanks in advance,

    You either:

    1. Make custom 2.1 firmware with Pwnage Tool/WinPwn
    2. Put your phone into DFU mode and restore using the custom firmware.


    Or:

    1. Upgrade with iTunes to 2.1 stock.
    2. Use QuickPwn to jailbreak from there.

    All I have is this IPSW file... I'm downloading it from http://www.iphone-hacks.com

    How come pwnage didn't create a 2.1 file? It did for 2.0.2 if I remember correctly.

    [EDIT]

    I'm going to use #2 of what you suggested. Sounds easier.

    I thought you lost some features with quickpwn.

    Quickpwn or pwnage? I'm downloading quickpwn now.


    Can anyone else comment on this?
