    Default What long lasting effect does Pwnage have ?

    When Apple launched Firmware 2.01, Jailbroken 2.0 users were recommended to not upgrade to Firmware 2.01 through a non-jailbroken/Pwned firmware in iTunes if we wanted to still be able to unlock in the future.

    I waited for Pwnage 2.02 then and am currently jailbroken with Firmware 2.01. Is the situation the same with Firmware 2.02 ? Should I hold off upgrading to Firmware 2.02 through iTunes (I understand my iPhone wouldn't jailbreak until a new version of Pwnage comes out.

    I'd like to get the stability of Firmware 2.02 and can do without a jailbroken iPhone for a few weeks but I don't want to compromise being able to unlock in the future (I am happy on AT&T for now but who knows how I'll feel in 2 years).

    Thanks in advance

    (This is for an iPhone 3G on AT&T)

    If you don't need the jailbreak, then upgrade to 2.0.2. Don't worry about the unlock, we still don't know if or when it will happen.

    (You can use also use Quickpwn to jailbreak 2.0.2 if you have Windows)

    I don't believe Pwnage does anything that a complete restore of your iPhone can't fix (although you might have to work towards doing a restore that also restores your baseband, i.e. downgrading your baseband and then restoring to a newer version).

    However, if you hope to unlock your 3G phone I might not upgrade to 2.02 yet, since doing this through iTunes (even if you choose to Quickpwn later) will upgrade your baseband (i.e. your modem firmware) in a way that might adversely affect your ability to unlock in the future.

    Note that doing a full Pwnage to get your 3G phone to 2.01 does NOT change or upgrade the baseband, but leaves it at 01.45.00, thus hopefully preserving a decent chance of it being unlocked sometime in the future.

    hi!
    i got an pre-paid iphone from italy, that means it is totally unlocked for all carriers..

    im pretty satisified with all the stuff you can do on it, but i would like to have the installer and/or cydia on the iphone too...

    is there a possibility to get that on it, without "throwin the total unlockedness" of the iphone away??

    thx

    I would wait before a more knowledgeable senior member can pipe in, but I believe in Pwnage you can avoid having your custom IPSW activate the phone, thus leaving you to activate as you would normally through iTunes, which is how my US 3G phone is.

    Since the the activation records are not changed in my phone, I would assume that you could use Pwnage to simply jailbreak and install Cydia/Installer and not otherwise mess with your baseband.

    ulle, you use pwnage tool to get the 2.0.1 firmware on your phone. The only additional step to take is to do it through expert mode and uncheck the "activate iphone" box. There you will have a jailbroken iphone 3g with no reminiscence of tampering with the baseband. Fully reversible with a simple restore in itunes.

    I fell the same way. I'm with ATT now, and my iPhone is jailbroken, but someday when I move to Japan I want to be able to unlock my iPhone for service there (with out those expensive international plans!)


    Edit: I'm not used to this reply button, so I thought the first post was the last!

    Anyway, you might want to keep a copy of the 2.0 firmware, and restore to that if you need to take it to an Apple store. That way the unlocking would be preserved by not updating your baseband, and you could update to the jailbroken 2.0.2 later on after visiting the store/sending it to service.

    Yes; simply pressing restore will automatically download the most current firmware from apple, where option+restore will open a box to choose your own.

    I'm on a mac, but I don't get that option. When I option+click the button like I've done before it forces me to do the 2.0.2 update (but I've not) Heh, I've even reinstalled OSX and it still won't let me.
