    I have 1.1.1 OOB jailbroken with the old jailbreakme.com and unlocked with AnySIM. I want to update it to 2.1 using Pwnage Tool.

    How do I go about it? Virginize to 1.1.1, upgrade to 1.1.4 and then run pwnage tool? Is the upgrade to 1.1.4 going to bring the BL to 4.6? Will it then behave like 1.1.4 OOB?

    Thanks.
    You can straight go ahead to 2.1 with PwnageTool 2.1. Virginizing is only for those having used AnySIM 1.0.2 at firmware 1.0.2. Your iPhone got unlocked with the "brave2 version of AnySIM.

    ^ it's been literally 7-8 months since i looked at this site and now i'm trying to catch up.

    i unlocked/jailbroke my iphone using the "ziphone" command line method a week before he made it into ziphone GUI. anyhow, just want to know what stage i'm at in terms of going to the latest iphone firmware while still maintaining the jailbreak/unlock.

    My iphone specs
    Version: 1.1.2 (3B48b)
    Model: MA712LL
    Modem Firmware: 04.02.13_G

    any help would be appreciated!!

    Welcome back, you have been choosing the perfect timing!

    Make sure to sync with iTunes (the version you have on your Mac/PC right now) first. Rhen update iTunes to version 8 if not done already. make sure aswell to use you favourite photo app to get photos you have been taken with the iPhone (sitting in camera roll now).

    Connect Mac/PC and the iPhone and restore to Apple Firmware 2.1. You will be at 2.1 locked. The choice of the unlock method is determined then by the PC you are using PwnageTool 2.1 (Macintosh) or QuickPwn 2.1 (Windows). There are lots of stickies in the forum on how-to.

    One tipp: Once you got your iPhone unlocked at fw 2.1 iTunes will - only on the first sync attempt - offer to restore data from a backup. Dont choose this option, choose "setup as a new iPhone" instead. If you dont you will get back old pref files that might cause trouble later. After setting up as a new iPhone, sync as usual to get your data back.

    ^ you make it sound so simple! I hope it goes as smooth as you state. Is there any particular tutorial you would recommend following? I can do this either through Windows or Mac as I have access to both. I am synching, however, via Mac ITunes.

    Hi volkspost (really like your handle btw), I have an OTB 1.1.1. I had downgraded the firmware to 1.0.2 in order to jailbreak and I am sure that I ran anySIM 1.1 (I still have the zip in my downloads folder on my PC.) When I go to Settings > General > About now, I see Version = 1.0.2 (1C28), Serial Number week is 39, and Modem Firmware is 04.01.13_G. Based on what you said, I am pretty confident that I don't have to virginize. Can I go ahead and use Pwnage 2.1 to upgrade and unlock? Thanks in advance.

    If you are sure you did not use AnySIM 1.0.2 but version 1.1 you are safe and can just go ahead and restore to 2.1 then pwn the iPhone.

    I got my iphone unlocked for 2.1 on Friday but the person who unlocked it did not tell me I should not "restore data from a backup". Now I can not use my data plan I just started to use to browse the internet. Is there anything I can do so I can surf the web?

    Thanks!

    hi .. I haven't been using my iphone for almost 5 months, now I decided to upgrade it to the latest firmware but i'm not really updated in this area.

    as I faced problems last time upgrading from 1.0.2 to 1.1.4,(you can check the problem from here http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f137...htm#post306859) I wanted to make sure of what i'm doing by seeking your advise.

    now, do I have to virginize it first as I did last time?
    which of these shall I use: PwnageTool or Quickpwn? (i'm using Windows)
    is there a link or tutorials how to backup my data .. SMS, contactlist, photos ...

    You don't need to virginize from 1.1.4 to 2.2.1

    which of these shall I use: PwnageTool or Quickpwn? (i'm using Windows)
    I'd say use Quickpwn it easier (Guide below)
    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 2G iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

    is there a link or tutorials how to backup my data .. SMS, contact list, photos ...
    If you upgrade (not restore) to 2.2.1 you shouldn't lose any data
    But if do some searching on Google & you will find lots of information on backing up
