    I used Pwnage Tool about 6 months ago and have since been able to use my 1st Gen iPhone with a T-Mobile sim card and that's the most important part. I'm still on 2.0 because I'm sort of afraid to update and loose my settings and files. Do I need to worry?

    Well you should back up your files, settings etc... It'll take some time, but I can't imagine staying at 2.0. That version was crap. 2.1 and 2.2 were well worth the upgrage. With 2.2, I restored using a back up (unlike the 2.0) and now all my settings from 2.1 were preserved. Only my app order on the homescreen were not preserved, but I could have solved that by taking screen shots of the screen prior to upgrading in order. No big deal though.

    dl the 2.2 pwnage tool
    dl vers 2.2 on itunes (apple firmware)

    then sync your iphone, make a backup. Upload all photos. Take screen shots of icon placement if you want.

    run the pwnage tool to create the custom firmware

    start looking at the prompt on the pwnage program and it should show you what you should be doing.

    1. Connect to iTunes
    2. Sync twice with iTunes (this will create a backup file)
    3. Create a custom 2.2.0 .ipsw using Pwnage.
    4. Use iTunes to install the 2.2.0 custom .ipsw you created
    5. iTunes does it.
    6. iPhone updated successfully
    7. ????
