Help please with update
I'm new at this and I want to update my 2g iphone to 2.2.1
The firmware is at 2.1 at the moment and was pwned using PwnageTool for mac
What i want to know and can't seem to find is will I lose the unlock when I upgrade and will I have to pwn again to unlock I dont mind not having cydia etc or a jailbreak iphone I just want it un locked
What do I do
Hope someone can help
Thanks in advance
If you update to 2.2.1 it will remain unlocked & stay activated but lose the jailbreak and all 3rd party apps.
If you restore it will still remain unlocked but you will need to activate again with Quickpwn or pwnagetool & this will also jailbreak & reinstall Cydia/Installer at the same time.
thanks for that I will let you know how i get on
Just updated no probs a painless experience
many many thanks

"update" in iTunes will retains all your settings/apps. Unlock remains as long as baseband does not change. You will loose the jailbreak. You will loose activation if not on official carrier.
"restore" pretty much wipe your phone. You will looseJailbreak and settings/apps. You will loose activation if not on official carrier. Unlock remains as long as baseband does not change.
