    Default iTunes allows wrong 2.0 install on 1st gen phone

    Hi all, I searched first but didn't find any mention of this. Maybe this will help out someone else who did what I did.

    I upgraded a couple of 1st gen phones (8gb and 4gb) from 1.1.4 to 2.0. They had been unlocked, so to be conservative, I restored them to 1.1.4 first and then upgraded to 2.0, and did not let them restore from backup (which seems to cause mail problems), and manually reentered info. The phones are now on ATT so don't need to be unlocked or jailbroken.

    However. I had gotten the 2.0 from a sneak preview link which did not warn that there are TWO versions of the 2.0 firmware, one for older phones and one for 3G phones. And when I did the option-restore (using a Mac) and chose the firmware file, iTunes didn't check to make sure it was the right firmware for the hardware.

    Firmware for old phone is named iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore
    Firmware for new phone is named iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Restore

    The 8gb phone was working, but having some issues with apps not opening and some crashes. The 4gb phone gave me more trouble with the update--the phone went into continuous-reboot mode, and I had to try the install several times before it took--and even two days later, it won't receive calls, which could be an ATT activation problem or could be a result of the wrong firmware, since the 4gb phone is several months older than the 8gb.

    I just downloaded the correct firmware and restored my 8gb phone and will do the 4gb one as soon as its owner comes back from a trip. Hopefully the re-restore will fix some or all of the problems.

    I made that mistake without realizing there were two different versions of the firmware. Which bricked the phone, for me at least. Trying to Pwn with it did not work so well.

    So when I went back to 1.1.4 after many board meetings (i.e. my head meeting the board of my desk) I was able to get my phone back to 1.1.4 with the proper baseband.

    Long story short. If you even question yourself being an expert in these kinds of things, follow a guide. Luckily, from this experience I have learned a lot and feel pretty comfortable with everything.
    1.1.4 iLiberty+ -> WinPwned -> BootNeuter -> Custom Pwned to 2.0 -> Upgrade to 2.1 -> QuickPwned
    -> Restored to 2.2.1 -> WinPwned -> Upgrade to 3.0 -> Redsnow'd

    A lot of the problems happen because we get sooo excited about getting the fix that we skip through without reading everything first....

    fixed in 2.1

    but this is actually nothing to really worry about. if you look in the ipsw, it has the iboot, illb, devicetree, and the rest of the gang for both the 2g and the 3g, in the 3g ipsw. now if you restore to an itouch ipw, that is when things get ugly...
