    Default [2G iPhone] Update to 3.0 (+JB) without power button

    Hi,

    I searched the forum but did not find an answer to that question: Is it possible to update my good ol' Iphone 2g (2.2, already Pwned with quickpwn), which has a broken power button, to the latest firmware release without loosing the jailbreak? The problem is that I neither can enter dfu mode nor restore mode (or is there a possibility without using the power button), but I've read that updating it via Itunes using a pwn build can work. But if it does not work, I am stuck with a bricked IPhone...

    So does anyone successfully updated his Iphone 2g to 3.0 without using the power button?

    Thanks in advance,
    tobin

    ya i did. create a custom restore ipsw with pwngetool. then click 'alt - restore' in itunes and select the custom ipsw file. it does all the powering, on and off, itself. worked on my 2g iphone from 2.2.1 to 3.0 today. i dunno if its unlocked tho since my sim contract is expired. (says no service - just like it did before the update.) gl

    Yeah, it worked .
    I used pwnage to create an image. Got into restore mode by pressing the Home button while connecting to usb. Then I just restored the custom image, works like a charme. The Iphone is activated and unlocked.

    got the same problem....but haven't worked with pwnage.
    really need an image for a 3GS phone running 3.0.1, don't need icy
    If somebody could post an auto-reboot package it would be greatly appreciated and I'll make it worth your while.
    -thx.
