    Default Need some guidance on updating my Iphone to 3.1.3

    Hello. it's been a REALLY long time since I last upgraded my iphone and not sure what to do now.

    My Iphone 2G is running on version 2.2.1 (5H11). I'd like to finally upgrade it to 3.1.3 but not sure exactly how to go about it. Last that I remember it had to be upgraded in a particular way, otherwise you risked being locked out of the phone's baseband. I believe I used pwnagetool to upgrade to 2.2.1 last time i did this. (It boots up showing a pineapple rather than Apple's actual logo if that helps any).

    I looked over the forums today but some of the stuff just confused me. I wanna understand EVERYTHING FIRST before doing this so i don't risk locking myself out. If I'm understanding it so far, I use either something called Redsn0w or pwnage tool?

    If someone can clarify to me on what exactly I need to do or simply point out a tutorial I missed. It would be greatly appreciate.

    I donated last time you guys helped me and am more than willing to donate again.

    thanks in advance

    You shouldn't have the same problems this time around. The unlock that you installed when going to iOS 2.2.1 won't be removed by the update.

    There are some new problems (poor battery life due to hacktivation). How you fix this depends on whether you want to use push notifications or not.

    First you need to download 3.1.2 and 3.1.2 IPSW from here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm (the guide says you only need 3.1.3 IPSW - which is not correct)

    In step 5, follow the pictures and broswe to the 3.1.2 IPSW in redsn0w.

    In step 7 You don't need to select "unlock" - that is not necessary. You can skip step 8 also.

    -- Pwnagetool can also be used...

    In both cases, you will lose any data (SMS messages, call history, app settings) that you had under 2.2.1 - This is the safest way (and reduces the chance of having weird battery life or stability issues.

    This doesn't include music, video and apps which iTunes syncs back from your computer. Also if you sync your contacts from the phone to your computer before the update - you can resync them back again.

    If there are specific settings you want to keep - (like for example SMS messages) it is possible to do this - but it is more complicated.

    Thanks for the quick reply this clarifies a lot. I just found out that it wasn't PwnageTool that I used to upgrade from FW 1.0.2 to 2.2.1 but that it was actually something called QuickPwn. Does this still mean that my phone is permanently unlocked?

    Going from version 1.x to 2.x, there were changes in baseband version which will remove the unlock.
    However, starting from firmware 2.0 to 3.1.3 on the iphone 2G, the baseband remains the same and therefore you unlock will not be removed.
    Just follow the steps that Olethros pointed out to you

    Yes your unlock is permanant... QuickPwn included bootneuter (2G unlock)
