    imageWarning: iPhone firmware 2.2.1 Breaks Software Method to Unlock iPhone 3G

    Apple released iPhone firmware 2.2.1 yesterday which included minor bug fixes and improvements as per the release notes. However, it looks like there was another reason for releasing the latest firmware. The Dev Team who had warned against updating to the latest firmware has confirmed that iPhone firmware 2.2.1 breaks...

      Apple is starting to piss me off. Do they have nothing better to do then changing the baseband. Come on Apple eventually your going to have to unlock these phones anyway. Its our phone, we paid for them. FU for being such asses.

      Why don't you settle down ed. You had a choice to purchase the phone, they didn't force you into using their products. If you don't like it, go get yourself a blackberry. They do these kinds of things for reasons that your tiny little brain will never understand.

      is the official unlocked, jailbroken iphone 3g affected?

      There is no "official" unlock or jailbreak. Apple does not support it.

      So if we dumb a**es did do the update to 2.2.1..... we are stuck with it? We can not downgrade back to 2.2. If so how? Thanks for your help.

      how do i down grade my firmware back to 2.2 because i upgraded it to 2.2.1

      Just to make sure I have this straight. If we are just jailbroken on the iPhone 3G, but not unlocked (and don't care about unlocking), we are OK to upgrade to 2.2.1 and re-jailbreak? Gracias.

      soon there will be solutions to jailbreak the v. 2.2.1 it will probably take some days...

      Even if you are looking to only jailbreak iPhone 3G and not unlock it, it is advisable to wait for the Dev team to release the updated versions of their PwnageTool and QuickPwn tools to jailbreak iPhone firmware 2.2.1 as the current version of the tools cannot jailbreak iPhone running firmware 2.2.1.

      The Dev Team has mentioned that they will be releasing the updated version of the tools soon.

      I have a jailbroken iPhone 3G but don't care about unlocking it. I upgraded to the new firmware 2.2.1 and it seemed to break all of my jailbroken apps. I tried to downgrade my firmware to 2.2 but I get an error every time. So am I stuck with a non-jailbroken iPhone until winpwn or quickpwn is updated? Thanks for your help.

      Hey TheChameleon,

      Unfortunately, you will now have to wait for the Dev Team to release updated version of their PwnageTool and QuickPwn tools to jailbreak iPhone firmware 2.2.1.

      We will let you know if there is a way to downgrade to iPhone firmware 2.2 to jailbreak it in the meantime.

      ...I remember having problems downgrading before, and I had to go back to an older version of iTunes for it to work.

    • benben Posts: 235

      You can downgrade the firmware, but not the baseband (which is what you unlockers need to be concerned about.) Unfortunately for you, once the baseband has been updated there is no going back. And while I fully suspect that the dev team will have this jailbroken in no time, it will likely be months (or never) before you see an unlock available. It took them several months to figure it out the first time and Apple has just completely eliminated the loophole that allowed them to achieve it. You unlockers who prematurely updated may want to start shopping for a new phone.

      Hey guys i just found a way to downgrade the new 2.2.1 firmware. I just did. I had to restore my phone last night and by mistake the new firmware was installed in my jail broken 3g. and this is what I did.
      download an older version of the firmware (2.0.1) for example, you also need the last version of quickpwn. once you have this open itunes and open quickpwn, and on itunes while hitting "Shift" click restore and look for the older firmware you downloaded; and while itunes is getting the info to get stared go to Quickpwn and run it with the same firmware you downloaded, BOTH PROGRAMS HAVE TO BE RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME. after this quickpwn is going to procced to jailbrake.

      I have an Italian set, unlockd by default. I jailbroke the phone. Now whether will 2.2.1 update lock my phone or just un-jailbreak?

      but it won't downgrade the baseband... so you can't use the phone, right ?

    • iPhoneHacksiPhoneHacks Posts: 2,315
      via Wordpress

      Yeah, it won't downgrade the baseband, so you will not be able to unlock it. But you will be able to use it with AT&T if you have a valid iPhone contract.

      As per Alan it is possible to use the turbo SIM mentioned above, however we don't recommend using it.

    • JonJon Posts: 116

      what is the latest on this ... i accidentally upgraded the firmware to 2.2.1 and modem baseband is now 02.30.03. Is there a cure for this yet?

    • JammerzzJammerzz Posts: 2

      Hey Alan,
      So that turbo sim unlocks the 2.2.1? and can leave my iphone 3g okay to use with t mobile and cydia??

      Apple didn't sell the phones retail they sold them subsidized to use with the carrier they assigned it to..
      so NO. they don't owe you the right to unlock the phones. And you chose the phone knowing this fully..

      So don't blame them. It was a risk and you took it.
