iPhone Dev-Team Warns Against Installing 2.2 Firmware

Posted November 16, 2008 at 10:43am by iClarified · 16920 views
The iPhone Dev-Team warns that installing the iPhone 2.2 firmware might prevent a software unlock when it is available.

We’ve made some decent progress with the iPhone 3G, nothing worthy of a party as yet but we are moving along nicely, we’ll keep you updated on this.

Now for something a bit more serious, we’ve explained about Apple’s updates in the past and we’ve warned against the immediate installation of these updates without knowing what they do to your device.

This is indeed true of the iPhone 3G’s upcoming 2.2 release. Installing ‘2.2’ on the iPhone 3G could affect your chances of any software unlock in the near future (should one be found and released), so when you see an update in iTunes await our instructions first!

Please don’t blindly install the update and then complain about it later ;-)

We will post the safe upgrade path when it becomes available.

I currently have a 2G unlocked , if I update it to 2.2 would it affect my phone as it would to the 3G ? Thanks in the future .

first, anyone with a brain knows this... second, this new update too important to wait for. not to mention, once they have the jailbreak, new firmware updates will only take days to crack.

Why wait to unlock a 3G Iphone when you can by them legally unlocked by apple from vodafone in Italy (contract free, pay walk out of shop with unlocked phone) and suppliers in greece and a few other countries... I did it for 3of them and I update the firmware without any worries or hassles about unlocking
