      Hey Steel,

      It is not possible to downgrade baseband currently. We will let you know if it is possible. So stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks.

      Hey fugitiv3,

      You should not face any problems in case you used the first version QuickPwn 2.2.5.

    • iPhoneHacksiPhoneHacks Posts: 2,315

      Hey seanlcky13,

      The official version of QuickPwn for firmware 2.2.1 is QuickPwn 2.2.5-2.

      So you should use this version.

      I have 2.2 now so should I update to 2.2.1 and then run quickpwn to jail break or do I need to do something in quickpwn before I update to 2.2.1? thanks

      What's the difference between jailbreak and unlock? I accidentally upgraded to 2.2.1 and have 2.30.00 and my firmware. I jailbreak it but I can't find Cydia. Any comments?

      Hey Pat,

      The answer to your question depends on the type of your iPhone.

      Let me know so I can clarify.

      3G 8GB and i care nothing about unlocking it now or anytime for that matter

    • patpat Posts: 32
      via Wordpress

      Also it is jailborken now via QuickPwn22-1 but I'm going to do a restore with no backup so it will be running fresh as can be before I re-jailbreak with 2.2.1!

    • iPhoneHacksiPhoneHacks Posts: 2,315

      Hey Pat,

      As you don't care about unlocking, you can simply update your iPhone with firmware 2.2.1 and then use QuickPwn 2.2.5-2 to jailbreak your iPhone 3G.

      I have an iphone 3g 16gb I dont want to unlock
      I have jailbroken the 2.2 firmware before using winpwn. I am wondering now if I jailbreak the 2.2.1 using quickpwn for windows or watever...my app store apps will be backed up when I do so but what bout the cydia apps ? will i loose them ?

    • iPhoneHacksiPhoneHacks Posts: 2,315

      Hey Manju,

      Since you don't care about unlocking you can update to firmware 2.2.1 and then jailbreak your iPhone 3G with Quickpwn 2.2.5-2.

      However, your jailbreak apps installed via Cydia will get wiped out and you will have to reinstall them again.

      There us a jailbreak app called Aptbackup but it doesn't work too well so it's advicable to reinstall the apps via Cydia.

      thanks...

      yea i did hear there is some cydia app but wasnt sure and u answered...alright fine ...ill go ahead and update thn

      thanks again

      I have an iphone 3g 8gb factory unlock
      I have jailbroken the 2.2 firmware before using quickpwn. Can I upgrade to firmware 2.2.1 directly using itunes? or restore to firmware 2.2 and upgrade to 2.2.1?

    • iPhoneHacksiPhoneHacks Posts: 2,315

      Hey Valentino,

      As per the note mentioned in the post:

      Your phone is already unlocked so you do not need to worry about baseband updates, simply upgrade to 2.2.1 using iTunes and then use QuickPwn to Pwn and Jailbreak. This will add Cydia and Installer too.

    • valentinovalentino Posts: 3

      Thanks a lot...i will proceed upgrade my iphone to 2.2.1 directly from itunes.

      Hey Brush,

      You are right, since you have access to a Mac, you can create the custom iPhone firmware using PwnageTool and then restore it using iTunes on your computer. You won't need to jailbreak it.

      Here is a link to a good guide to use PwnageTool to jailbreak your iPhone 3G:
      http://www.simonblog.com/2008/11/25/complete-guide-jailbreak-iphone-22-2g3g-using-pwnagetool/

      It hasn't been updated for firmware 2.2.1 but should be similar, don't forget to use PwnageTool 2.2.5.

      But please proceed with caution. Its also a good idea to read the comments before proceeding to be aware of the risks and to get comfortable.

      We will try to publish a guide as well as soon we give it a shot but might take sometime.

      Hey,

      Unfortunately, updating your iPhone 3G with firmware 2.2.1 results in updating its baseband to 2.30.03 and it is currently not possible to either downgrade to 02.28.00 nor is it possible to unlock it.

      It might also take the Dev Team sometime to unlock it as the baseband update breaks the "injection hole" that they had used in their application yellowsn0w to modify the firmware which had helped to successfully unlock iPhone 3G.

      You need to install a **** Client such as BitTorrent (google it) and open the **** file within that program. Once you did that it will start downloading a ZIP file which includes the Jailbreak Tool...

      Quick question: I have the winpwn-2.5-BETA 2 and I'm trying to unlock my 2G. After initializing it with the current 2.2.1 restore file, and the bootloaders, it will go through all processes well, and reboot the phone with the pinnaple logo. The phone has the installer logo now, which I assume means its jailbroken. When I put my ATT Wireless card in (the phont is locked to ATT, which is seperate from ATT wireless), it says "needs to sync with itunes" to validate my new sim. When I plug it into my computer, iphones tells me my sim isnt supported. apparently, this program doesn't unlock the phone. what am I doing wrong? thank you!

      oops I made an error in my last post. i'm using "QuickPwn-225-2" winpwn-2.5. Winpwn freezes every single time I try to use it. SO please respond as if I had said "i have QuickPwn-225-2" as is shown in the bittorrent link found here.
