    Moving to newer versions of firmware is less troublesome then it used to be.
    You just need to pay attention to use proper iTunes, and know how to put the phone to DFU mode[but u probably already know this).
    The pattern is as follows:
    1. Restore to desired NEW software version [your unlock from 2.1 will remain untouched].
    2. Jailbreak with Redsnow

    There is only one trick with 3.0.1 firmware - you restore to 3.0.1 in iTunes, but "feed" redsnow with 3.0 firmware. [Since the jailbreak process hasn't changed]

    If you are moving to 3.1 , newest[still unrealesed!] version of redsnow will be probably happy with 3.1 firmware, since the jailbreak process has changed.

    Don't hesitate asking if you have any doubts.

    Nice thanks a lot! Would u be so kind and tell me when the 3.1 solution is out and give me another discription of what to do then.. I think I'll wait for that now..
    Another thing is, if u know how to keep my text messeges, I would be very thankful if u told me how to do that.. I did it once already, but i don't remember exactly how i got into the file system, plus where the text file was saved..
    Thanks a lot,
    Dan

    I'm in a similar boat. I have the 2G iphone running FW 1.1.4. It is unlocked/Jailbroken. Looking to upgrade to 3.1. Hopefully a solution will be right around the corner.

    If you're on a Mac, you can use PwnageTool 3.1 to create a custom 3.1 IPSW. If you're on Windows, Google around and you can find a custom 3.1 IPSW. All you need to do is a Shift + Restore in iTunes and select the custom 3.1 IPSW and you're good to go! You'll need iTunes 9 installed for 3.1

    if you do this method, do you keep your modem FW or is it updated to the 3.0 modem FW?
