    Default iphone 2g 1.12(4.02.12_G) upgrade questions

    Hi,I apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge in this field.I am new here and found that this is the best forum for iphone support.I will receive a like new iphone 2g with 1.12 OS and 4.02.13_G FW in a week.I am doing research prior to avoid killing the phone.

    I will be utilizing the T-mobile network and would prefer that wifi be my main source of connection to the internet.

    1.How do I unlock/jailbreak my iphone 2g 1.12(4.02.13) when I receive it?

    1.I heard that OS 2.2.1 and 3.0 have issues with connecting to wifi on unlocked t-mobile iphone 2g.I would prefer to update to OS 1.14 or 2.2?But what OS do you recommend for a t-mobile iphone 2g?(keep in mind I need my wifi to work)?

    2.If you have an iphone 2g with tmobile,and your WiFi is working, what is your current OS and firmware?

    I'd appreciate any thoughts and opinions on this matter.

    Hi

    With the 2G device you should be fine to update to 3.1 & afterwards use redsn0w to A.J.U.

    Following a guide like THIS is fine

    thanks for replying back.Are you sure I won't have a wifi failure?.I'm afraid to upgrade because I purchased the iphone 2g off ebay.It has the original Nov2007 firmware on there with no warranty.I was just thinking about upgrading to 1.1.4 and do U/J for the time being but not sure.

    OS 3.1 is fairly new, and I believe there is no word of wifi issues on that version yet.

    Thanks for taking the time to help me.I would like my iphone 2g to be like to have 3.0.However,I am still cautious because I don't want my wifi to screw up. Here are a few links I found regarding the issue.

    Apple - Support - Discussions - No WiFi after 3.0 on 2G - does not ...

    no wifi after upgrade to 3.0 on iPhone 2g - The iPhone Blog Forums

    no Wi-Fi after 1.1.4 to 3.0 upgrade on an iPhone 2G

    Hi

    It seems a pretty random problem only a few 2G owners are having

    Nothing is 100% but I wouldn't be to worried about restoring to the latest 3.1 firmware

    But one thing I would say is don't take the update option to 3.1 instead make sure you fully (DFU) restore

    That way you can't bring any old problems from 1.x into the new 3.x firmware

    Restore to 3.01
    RedSn0w using 3.0 ipsw - follow the guide at iClarified.
