This is how i did my iPhone 2G
1) I upgraded the phone trough iTunes
2) After the upgrade the phone worked (still unlocked)
=> All the Cydia (Installer) apps were gone
=> All the Appolus apps were there but didn't work
3) Run QuickPwn 2.2
=> Cydia / Installer was back
=> All the Appolus apps worked again
4) Reinstalled the Cydia (Installer) apps
Have fun :hack:
From which version did you upgrade?
I'm currently running a jailbroken and unocked 2.02 iPhone 2G. Can I just upgrade to 2.2 as well?
I had iPhone OS 2.1 (Pwnage), but i guess you can upgrade this way
Main feature is i could keep all the apps and created data
And the procedure is very quick
P.S. if it doesn't work you can still start with Pwnage ;)
Could somebody confirm the 2.0.2->2.2 procedure?
I had a 2.0.2 done by Winpwn.
Updated to 2.2 with itunes, my phone was still unlocked but all apps missing...ran Quickpwn and re-installed apps via cydia.
Yes you can. Apple did not change the baseband for 2G iPhones, still the same. Thats the reason the unlock stays.

I have updated to 2.2 from 1.1.2 and then ran the quickpwn tool, it says I have suceeded but all that happens is the iphone goes back to the locked screen.
I'm worried I have totally messed up, any help would be appreciated (I have read through the guides)
Did the same, but ran "aptbackup" backup before update.

Don't know how would work if I perform a restore instead of an update in iTunes, though.
[P.S.]: The restore proccess in aptbackup took 10-15 minutes, then the phone reboots, everything working fine!
