    Hi folks, i'd just like to let you all know i followed this step by step info by the book and it worked perfectly first time with no hithces, i restored from backup and everything is as normal but now runs on 2.0 software. I did take my time to go through it all propperly but i am a complete novice so it can't be too hard for others. I'm running a basic windows XP laptop and my iphone first gen was unlocked/jailbroken with ziphone before hand. Thanks to whoever set this up or discovered, good work chappies =)

    Need to be sure with one thing! does this custom firmware available here modify the boot logo to the pineapple?

    Id rather have the default boot logo. Can that be possible? I did the same thing for a freind on his 2G Iphone with windows with another custom firmware out there.. it worked like a charm, but as I was about to do it with my... I saw his boot logo was a pineapple.

    At no point did i see any pineapple logo apart from the desktop icon on my pc. Mike if you use winpwn 1.0 to unlock your iphone and install the 1.4 custom firmware first then i think it will work. have you tried the details all the way? hope that helps you guys!

    The steps are great. I just did the process in 10-15 minutes with no hiccups. From all windows users, thank you for the steps.

    I followed the above an bootneuter didn't 'automatically come up'. I now have a restored 1.1.4, all custom apps gone.

    When I ran bootneuter I set it to 3.9, neuter on, and flashed it. Anyone know what I might have missed? Should it have been 4.6?

    I am not the best on this sub, but doesn't we all get the same IMEI?

    everything works fine and i have installed 2.0
    but the thing is, i think 2.0 is NOT designed to work with the original iPhone because the applications takes longer time to open and to close and the phone hangs and sometimes halts.
    any idea to speed things up??

    i think i'm downgrading back to 1.1.4

    Do I need to get it from some place ?

    It is working GREAT ! Just updated to v2.0
    I would like to clarify a thing that was a little confusing for me.

    Step 7: Run ZiPhone & jump your iPhone into NORMAL Recovery mode (available via advanced settings area in ZiPhone) -- This is the most straightforward way to get it into the proper restore mode.

    NORMAL recovery mode is simple "Recovery mode" in Ziphone (the middle button).

    The first is DFU mode, then Recovery mode, then Normal mode.

    In step 7 use Recovery mode.

    I have a doubt,

    I used ziphone to unlock my 1.1.4 iphone.

    Hence do i still need to flash the custom IPSW on 1.1.4 on my iphone?

    and do i still need to run boot neuter?

    or could i simply flash this custom file with iTunes 7.7?

    It is wonderfull and great. Well done iPhone Dev Team. I have MAC and Windows both. ipsw file was created quite easily but i was having trouble restoring using i tunes. tranferred my file to PC and it was restored wihtout a problem.

    I have found a link to download applications for iphone. (paid). although there is a method to install them but those wont install. Any one knows how to do it... please share.

    here is link to download applications (the method specified does not work)

    Great! you are heros!
    I've already tried loads of procedures to upgrade my 1.1.4 to 2.0, without succes, and with loads of **** ups on my iphone.

    At last a method that works.

    I really appreciate it! Thanks!

    What does "An unknown error occurred (1604)" mean? The restore failed.

    I thought i was screwed! but this hack sorted it all out!! THANKS!
    if you already have 1.1.4 installed do you only need to neut the bootloader and upload the custom firmware?

    i have created my own custom ipsw’s on winpwn, i think that i have also got back to 1.1.4 from 2.0 everytime the iphone turns on i get the itunes logo with the cable, and when i restored in itunes i got a 150x error message, from this point, you’ve said to use win pwn to pwn my iphone, however when it gets to the point of pwning it says starting pwnage and doesnt do anything else, the popup comes up i click okay, and thats it, then when i try to do a custom restore, i get error message im running 7.5, is my iphone as good as a brick? please help i’ve been trying for two days, having only just bought unlocked and stupidly updating, and i go away tomorrow would realy like to have it working! thanks in advance!!!

    if i upgrade to 2.0 using this method. then happen to restore again by just shift-click and selecting the custom firmware. will it remain unlocked?
