    Anyone tried updating a 2G iPhone running the official 2.2.1 software that has been previously jailbroken?

    Does it update OK? It doesnt matter if it re-locks it, as long as it updates.

    Yes, updates just fine. Everything will be the same, except you won't have your jb apps.

    Will post my experience when it finishes as it sounds like we did a similar update path: I bought it and did a jailbreak/unlock 1.1.4, then official 2.0 and have been updating from itunes ever since.

    edit: works great.

    I've updated mine and it is still unlocked. UK phone running on Orange.

    ha ha with some weird technique I managed to downgrade to 2.2.1 hack it, and now upgrade to 3.0 and it worked :)
