As we all know that Apple has released the latest iPhone OS 3.0 and is available to download via iTunes 8.2. Here comes some important news for all the iPhone 2G (Original iPhone) owners about upgrading their iPhone 2G to OS 3.0 without losing activation and Unlock.
This info is for iPhone 2G, the 1st Gen of iPhone, owners only.
If you connect your iPhone 2G to iTunes and hit update button, your iPhone 2G will be updated to iPhone OS 3.0 WITHOUT losing your Unlock.
However if you’re on an unofficial carrier you will:
- Lose your iPhone 2G Activation if you used QuickPwn to jailbreak you iPhone 2G. Which means your iPhone will be able to detect the network but you will NOT be able to use your iPhone.
- Not Lose iPhone 2G Activation if you used f you used PwnageTool to jailbreak you iPhone 2G.
So, now it’s up to you, if you’re much excited about iPhone OS 3.0 and want it to install immediately, just make sure you jailbroke your iPhone with Pwnage Tool or rejailbreak using PwnageTool and then do the update.
Otherwise wait for a little bit more and the iPhone Dev-Team will release new PwnageTool and QuickPwn utilities shortly and this is what we recommend.
