    When you upgrade, just hit the restore button and it will wipe the phone, download and install the new software.

    2g = original iPhone
    3g = new iPhone

    You have to restore it to its original unlocked state to upgrade, then you can use whatever tool you want to unlock it after you upgrade.

    Read the pwnage FAQ below!

    You can NOT upgrade to 2.0.1 unlocked and jailbreaked yet.

    You can upgade to 2.0 unlocked and jailbreaked.

    You use pwnage - build a custom firmware and restore in iTunes.

    Read the FAQ.

    Pwnage is very safe so its unlikely you will brick your phone.

    No. Its the full apple release version.

    If you had spent about 10 mins reading this forum you would have found all this out.

    Oh and, I was in exactly your position a few weeks ago.

    Follow the Pwnage steps or Winpwn steps which can be found at winpwn.com and iClarified sites to upgrade to 2.0. Problem solved.

    Dude, post once. Nobody likes a spammer.

    There are no guides to 2.0.1 as pwnage hasn't been released for it. Again, all easily discoverable on the first page of "iPhone Hacks".

    Either wait till pwnage 2.0.2 or use the one posted at the top of the aforementioned page.

    You might as well wait until 2.0.2 as its going to be released sometime today anyway.

    Im in the exactly same boat as you as im on 1.1.4

    What I will be doing is restoring to the full apple 2.0.1 in iTunes then using the guide for 2.0 posted in this very forum i'll be going to 2.0.1.

    Will save me from buggering the phone by touching it :p
