Hi, I also unlocked using QuickPwn for windows. I'm running 2.2.1 and want to upgrade SO MUCH! But something with the dev team for QuickPwn means they've stopped developing QuickPwn so I was wondering whether I could upgrade to 3.0 and then unlock using redsn0w? would that work okay? has anyone else tried this? Thanks!

I upgraded my unlocked 2G iPhone. Works fine except no YouTube. Also, the battery seems to die extremely fast when I am outside. No data plan but I think the phone is trying to connect all the time or something. Maybe I need to hack the apn settings?

I upgraded my iphone 2g to 3.0 and everything went well, until my battery drain 1/4 almost in 2 hours, when usually last up to 48 hours with wifi on, so I decide to downgrade back to 2.2.1, it took a many tries to get itunes to not report 1600 error and use pwned again, but work, i am wondering if any one has had a short battery life after upgrading????

I also have the crazy battery drain - less than 4 hours down to nothing. I will need to go back soon if no fix is on the horizon soon.

Damnit mate, learn to spell it, it's "lose" not "loose". One O, not 2! LOSE!!!

BE CAREFUL!!! I have (more precisely, used to have) a jailbroken and unlocked 2G iphone (using Pwnage Tool, to 2.2.1). I use a Mac, followed Vinay's instructions exactly on ihackintosh.com, updated (not restored) to 3.0 AND NOW MY PHONE IS BRICKED. And I can't downgrade back because I can't download iTunes 8.1 anymore (even oldapps.com doesnt have it, only 8.2). SO IF YOU HAVE A MAC, PLEASE BE MORE PATIENT THAN ME AND WAIT FOR THE NEW RELEASE FROM THE DEV TEAM!!!!

Samething happened to me, Does that mean my iphone 2G is completely useless now? or do I have to wait for the new PwnageTool via dev team. This sucks.

hopefully we just have to wait for the next Pwnage, which should be coming out any moment. Otherwise, its back to the stone age. i just wish i waited and didn't trust what Vinay wrote. I was suspicious to just update on iTunes without anything else, and my suspicions were unfortunately confirmed. But its my mistake

How can I see if I unlocked my 2G iphone with quickpwn or Pwnage? It has been a long time since I did it, and last time I jailbroke it with quickpwn, but I can't remember if I also unlocked it since is was already unlocked. I didn't jailbroke it since last update (2.2.1 I think) via iTunes.

Gw ikutin saran diberita ini dengan baik dan benar. Sekarang, iPhone 2G gw dah pake 3.0. Lebih cepet dan rasanya lebih enak dengan huruf yang sedikit lebih besar jadi enak dilihat kalo liat menu2 di iPhone (terutama SMS), dan betul adanya kalau fitur2 yang membutuhkan spec hardware yang baru, gak bisa dipake di 2G ini. WARNING: Battery jadi cepet abis.Silakan dicoba sendiri, asal siap tanggung resiko sebab semua jailbroken apps hilang!!! Following the warning, I successfully upgraded my 2G to OS 3.0. Seems like the battery drops too fast...!!!
