    Default 2.1 to 2.2 question

    i want to yellowsn0w my 3g handset.

    guides suggest a restore to 2.2. then cydia source for yellowsn0w then unlock.

    the handset is 2.1 otb on a O2 contract.

    what is the reasoning behind the restore (and not upgrade) from 2.1 to 2.2 in itunes?

    Hi

    There nothing to say you can't use the update option if you wanted to

    One reason people restore instead of updating is to make sure they get a completely clean phone before they run yellowsn0w.

    ahh, makes sense. i had read the guides literally and wondered if there was a difference in the two processes (apart from the obvious data / setting loss).

    thanks for the reply n350z

    Your welcome

    Remember when you update you will still lose third party apps you currently have like Cydia.

    So you will still need to use Quickpwn if you want cydia back again to apply yellowsn0w

    Default 2.0.1 > 2.2

    I have an unlocked/jailbroken 2G Iphone with FW2.0.1(04.05.04_G Modem FW) installed(done with quickpawn some time ago). I want to go to 2.2FW. I have looked at some tutorials and some suggest I first restore the Iphone to 2.2FW using Itunes and then use Quickpawn to Unlock/JB again. Other guides say not to use Itunes at all and to just use Quickpawn to do it all with no need to unlock again. I am a bit confused about the correct way to proceed. Would appericate a few pointers in the right direction.

    What you said first is correct

    You use itunes to restore/update to 2.2 then you run Quickpwn to jailbreak.

    Be careful you don't acidently update to 2.2.1 because there is no jailbreak available for that version at the moment.
