    I am trying to download the 2.2 firmware for my 2G iPhone. Last time i downloaded it i ended up with a folder that contains:

    '018-4378-1.dmg' (Doesn't work)
    '018-4380-1.dmg'
    'Firmware' folder
    'kernelcache.release.s5l8900x'
    'Restore.plist'

    The second dmg on the list opens up into lots of folders containing the firmware. But it isn't a ispw file...

    Can anyone tell me what to do or give me another location please??

    Thanks

    PS. Another time when i downloaded i got another dmg that required a password. It's called '018-3782-2.dmg'. If anyone knows the password please say.

    It was jailbroken and unlocked.
    2.2.1 screwed it up and now it doesn't recognize the Sim card. I want to downgrade to 2.2 and then jailbreak it again....

    What I would suggest, is restoring to 2.2.1, and then run quickpwn again. No need to go back to 2.2.

    Since you already went to 2.2.1 you can't fix what you broke. 2.2.1 updated your baseband to an unlockable baseband. Even if you go back to 2.2, you'll still have the 2.2.1 baseband. So you're stuck. You should have followed the directions on how to go to 2.2.1 but keep your unlocked 2.2 baseband.

    Are you sure you can't go back?
    I saw on another forum that you can option-click on the restore button in iTunes and then chose the ispw file. Then chose 2.2

    What you think? I'm downloading 2.2 again atm so will find out myself in about 30 mins :S

    I'm assuming you have a 2G iphone correct? Since you it was unlocked over a year ago with ziphone *since the iphone 3g unlock didn't get released till new years of this year*

    That is a good find. All that info in the video is correct. If you are using a mac, the proccess is simple. You can choose to unlock your 2G phone at the same time as jailbreaking. Pwnage tool makes this process really simple. Try it out. :D

    Sorry, missed the 2G part. My response was for a 3G.

    You are probably on a mac using safari correct?

    this is caused by safari automatically trying to extract the file for you. its a bitch.

    With the new firmware i can't do anything unless i have the real Sim, which i don't. I want to downgrade, and then unlock it again.

    Just download and run pwnage tool to unlock the phone once you are on 2.2.1 *
