I like to confirm that Custom 2.2Firmware (which was created with pwnage2.2.1) is perfectly running on my iphone2G with fake imei. So all mails regarding to 2.1Custom FW would be upgrade their iphone to 2.2. I created a new 2.2firmware with Cydia and Installer in it, so you can able to restore your phones to this firmware. If you still in 1.1.4FW, you can again follow my tutorial and just you should use 2.2FW instead of 2.1FW. Anyone who already use 2.1FW with fake imei can safely restore your phone with 2.2 Custom Firmware.
Baseband is the same so you do not need any bootneuter operation to unlock. If you have chance to create your own 2.2FW, you shouldnt be select bootneuter and thats all. You can safely restore it.
By the way, due to the itunes, you should restore your iphone. You will have error when you try to upgrade. You can switch your iphone to recovery or DFU mode.
I decide to create a blog to help others. I'm getting hundreds of emails and you can know easily that it is too hard to reply all of them, but I did!. So, I will share my custom 2.2FW within my blog and to whom written in this threat and also mailed to me will have a new link to have 2.2 Custom FW.
For new people, I will also send them 2.1FW links to have practise :) to get ready to 2.2FW.
Greetings from Turkey,
P.S. 2.2FW is awesome.. I have also iphone3G..both of them are very stable and fast now. I really like it. Thanks apple to fix most of the major bugs.

Now, you have the blog..O:)
The name of the blog is "home of magic" and the domain is blogspot as usual. The name is starter part of the address and the domanin name is end part of the address. Now, you know the complete address, just find and write the hole address in the adress bar of your browser. Why I'm doing like is to obey the hackint0sh rules. May be it can be a treasure hunt.

Hello Magic, hello All
I failed to change IMEI yesterday. I have no clue what went wrong. Syntoms were that after the 1.1.4 downgrade itunes was issuing an error(like you said), but afterwards my phone was in "restore mode". None of the tools i am aware off could get it out(ibrickr,ziphone) and only option left was to reinstall the 2.2 Firmware. :woz:
Only thing i managed myself afterwards was to get it from restore to DFU mode, and then back again. But i could not start is and ziphone could not change the IMEI. It detected it, but went on for ages without changing anything.
You should use correct itunes versions, otherwise not possible to install correct firmware or use third-party tools such as ziphone. Be sure that while you are on 1.1.4, itunes version should be 7.x and while you are on 2.x, itunes version should be 8.0.2. Thats what you need to careful.
