    Lightbulb Sitting at 3.0 now...what are my options??

    I have 2G unlocked and jailbroken sitting at Firmware 3.0 currently. Can I update to the latest firmware at all? If so please provide details. From what I've read, it doesn't seem possible.....

    With pwnagetool you can create a custom firmware and restore (not upgrade) to 3.1 you will keep your unlock your phone will still be jailbroken.

    This is only true for 2G phones. Other models need to be careful to avoid upgrading baseband to a version that can't be unlocked.

    Thanks for that. One last question, does it matter if I use Itunes 9? I see the latest is 9.0.1, will this still work?

    Restore after creating the custom firmware. Follow instructions on iClarified.

    In my case (2G Unlocked 3.0.1 and Windows) this worked:

    Just upgrade your 2G to 3.1.2 in Itunes.

    Wait until process completes, the 2G will start with a Itunes connector

    Start blackweather

    Press "Make it ra1n"

    wait for 2 - 3 minutes.

    After reboot, the phone is unlocked again, you can now start blackra1n to uninstall or jailbrake.
