    Default How to upgrade to 2.1 without using QuickPwn

    I am on 2.0.1 unlocked with WinPwn but 2.0.1 is buggy and doesnt support all applications. Therefore, I decided to install 2.1 and to unlock it with QuickPwn following iClarifieds guide. The problem was that after restoring to 2.1, QuickPwn doesnt recognizes my phone in restore mode after it rebootes into restore mode which is done by QuickPwn. I tried it several times and waited for about 10 minutes but nothing happened. The screen on the phone looks like in restore mode but QuickPwn doesnt recognizes the phone.

    It seems that QuickPwn doesnt work for me. Going back to a unlocked 2.0.1 was a hassle for me because I had huge problems to get into dfu mode. Therefore, I dont really want to try QuickPwn again.

    I am wondering now, if there is another method to update to 2.1? For example if there would be a custom 2.1 firmware available somewhere and I could shift restore with that firmware. If this would be the case and I would still have problems to get into dfu mode, I would still have an unlocked 2.0.1 and not a locked 2.1 like I would have if I would use QuickPwn.

    hey
    try thepiratebay.org and search for custom 2.1 firmware there. You should get one. Read the description and download the custom firmware you need.
    When you finish and want to restore in iTunes, you don't need DFU. Just shift+restore.

    hm, cannot use bittorrent because i am in a university network which blocks bittorrent.

    I am wondering how these guys created the custome 2.1 FW since there is no WinPwn for 2.1?
