    Should work just fine.

    I will say, they definitely proved me wrong and got this out fast and we don't even need to patch iTunes to make it work.

    awesome :eek:

    ... just one more thing, does iTunes 8.0 need to be pwned cuz obviously i cant do that without a mac for now or can we just use shift + restore and then chose the custom firmware?

    You should be able to use the shift+restore trick. They said they didn't need to release a patch.

    I want to jailbreak as well (for the first time)...but am unsure...what's the shift+restore trick?

    Anyway, if anyone jailbreaks 2.1 w/ iTunes 8 tell me how it goes and if I have to do anything extra. Thanks :)

    Edit: Shoot...Mac OSX...any news for the Windows version....w/ iTunes 8?

    You hold down shift, or option on a Mac, and then click on the Restore button. It lets you select which firmware you want to use.

    I know there's a 2.1 jailbreak for 7.7...but I refuse to revert back...any news on an iTunes 8 patch/fix for a 2.1 jailbreak?

    I've downloaded and tried to run updating from 2.0 with no luck I just receive errors. Looks like a buggy release to me. Wish I hadn't updated iTunes on both my macs, maybe it's a problem with iTunes 8.0.

    Couple Questions:

    1. For those who are receiving errors...is it using Pwnage Tool or QuickPwn? It makes a difference, and I think we need to be specific in order to provide correct information for those getting ready to do this.

    2. For those who have successfully updated, are there any issues with the following apps

    a. Categories
    b. 5 icon Dock

    3. As stated above does the "Mobileframwork" patch still work?

    Thanks

    I can confirm that 5 icon dock works in 2.1 Never used Categories and have tried to stick away from the patch because I found too many issues with it.

    Bash, as in terminal app, sorry my brains not functioning very well today.

    That was supposed to be without activation, but actually i am having doubt now that it is the correct IPSW file, i will just check, torrent may stop if it isn't so i can create one with the correct activation setting.

    Apologies, will be back shortly.

    If someone can point me in the directions of the 2G 2.1 files i am also willing to create a 2G custom firmware for you guys.
