- You should install original 2.2.1 FW and then use Quickpwn to unlock it that should be in 3.9BL. You should use latest itunes version.
- Turn back to 1.1.4 FW and then use to ziphone to change your stuff (remember to stay in 3.9BL). You should use at least 7.6.2 itunes version.
- Lastly you can use my custom firmware and install it by basicly press shift+restore. You sure that for this step, you should use latest itunes version.
So you know that new 2.2.1 custom firmware are ready to install from my site.
is there a way yet to change the imei on a 3g 2.2.1?
Hi magic,I have been using a 2g 16gb iphone on a non iphone AT&T phone plan to save money!!. I have wireless everywhere i go in USA so i do not need expensive EDGE data plan. I disable edge 2g with a FakeAPN from [url =http ://unlockit.co.nz/]APN Changer[/url] and it has worked and for a while now AT&T don't know about my iphone. However, AT&T got smart and now recognize my imei as iphone and says i have to pay for expensive $$$$ iphone plan. My phone is jailbroken and unlocked with 2.2.1 as of now since i bought from ebay. Do you think i can use your method to change my iphone imei to my old phone imei, then update to your custom 2.2 FW --- and then Disable data with FakeAPN? I dont want to break my iphone or disable wirless! I just want to keep my cheap cellphone plan You're advice would be much appreciated! Thanks, David

Ok, So I have a iphone 2g with 2.2.1 jail broken & unlocked.
I am trying to spoof my IMEI.
I downloaded the "Custom" 2.2.1 FW from your website.
I downloaded itunes 7.5 for another computer along with ZiPhone.
When I plug in my 2.2.1 FW Iphone into itunes 7.5 it says "Iphone cannot be used because it requires Itunes version 7.7 or later."
Should I proceed to download 7.7 and use that to downgrade from 2.2.1 to 1.1.3?
Are these the correct steps?
1. Itunes 7.7
2. Restore Iphone FW to 1.1.3
3. ZiPhone unlock, Change IMEI
4. Itunes 8.X
5. Restore Iphone FW to 2.2.1 CUSTOM
You should install original 2.2.1 FW and then use Quickpwn to unlock it that should be in 3.9BL. You should use latest itunes version.
Turn back to 1.1.4 FW and then use to ziphone to change your stuff (remember to stay in 3.9BL). You should use at least 7.6.2 itunes version.
Lastly you can choice one of above custom firmware and install it by basicly press shift+restore. You sure that for this step, you should use latest itunes version.
got it to work than kyou!
it was because of ziphone GUI being stupid. I will help write a better more detailed tutorial when I have time
