    I was saying earlier that it might not be that easy. For example, 2.0 has appstore. Apple may wish to add an ipsw check to see if it is pwned or not, say in iTunes 7. They then might say that in order to use 2.0, u must have the latest iTunes (eg iTunes 7) which includes support for 3rd party apps backups and transactions. This means you must update to iTunes 7 to use 2.0, but iTunes 7 does not allow pwned ipsw's. You then may not just be able to only upgrade iTunes for the update to 2.0 and downgrade it again because iTunes older versions might say "itunes does not support this version of iphone, please update to the latest version"

    Hmm

    iTunes patches might become a part of pwnage in the future, but that's not a big deal compared to patching bootloaders in NOR on the device from an unsigned RAM disk

    They wouldn't need to patch the ipsw files in order for pwnage to not work, they could do it like this:

    1. Update iTunes: remove option to option/shift click to load ipsw file.
    2. before updating iPhone firmware, the first check what version of iTunes you use and then if it's below version x.x.x then force the user to update itunes to version x.x.x in order to upgrade your phone to newest firmware.

    I like the way everyone is sidestepping the future of the iPhone - Apple already has the 'fix' waiting - I bet they are ready and willing to cast off the 5million users they have now and let the hackers carry on with the current software.

    Within a matter of weeks there will be a 3-G iPhone and I think we can all be sure that every hack and pwnage tool will be history

    A whole new ballgame starts and with that thousands more posts on Hackint0sh to wade through with all the "I ACCIDENTALLY tapped the wrong button - can you help me"

    Maybe 2.0 will get sorted out and released for current phones but 3-G will be a new chip set and different BL and Modem - It's a fun time ahead.

    aint the restriction about providers is to end this year.
    Also the SDK is just released and still Beta, i dnt think they are going to release the 3G version of iPhone that quick, it had only been less than a year here, and 3G phone would require more alot to produce from both the H/W and the S/W to support. as far as i know that Still at Egypt it would be released by august or jan 09, like Asia. Steve said in his keynote that we'd be talking about results after being one year in the full market (US, Canada, Europe, Asia)

    i guess it's a hoax that the 3G is about to be released, and also the Enterprise plan of apple, how would they release enterprise plans for now and they are releasing 3G later. Enterprise would simply need to get 3G for faster communication and abilities.

    After all this is my opinion

    If future updates of itunes block the Option/Shift key to load different IPSW files you can always place the costume IPSW in the folder were itunes keeps the IPSW files and just change your costume's IPSW name to the one that is in the folder.
