Thought id start a threadwhere I will post help for people upgrading their iphones, if you have any questions please feel free to ask!


Definitions:
JAILBREAKING: changing the phone so that it can accept and run 3rd party applications (applications not from the apple app store)

UNLOCKING: Being able to use any sim in your phone

INSTALLER: A 3rd part program that is installed on your phone and which you can use to upload other 3rd part software onto the phone, installed automatically when you jailbreak 2.0.1

CYDIA: An alternative to installer, used to be the only loader available for 2.0 jailbroken iPhones although from 2.0.1 Installer is making a comeback. Installed automatically when you jailbreak 2.0.1 and above

Current situation of unlocking/Jailbreaking (28th August 2008)

iPhone 2G can be unlocked and Jailbroken to firmware 2.0.2 (current highest firmware from apple) see guide below:
http://sleepers.net/news/2008/08/19/quick-pwn-gui-guide/

iPhone 3G can be Jailbroken with the same guide BUT THERE IS NO SOFTWARE UNLOCK AVAILABLE FOR THE 3G IPHONE!

There is a hardware unlock for the iphone that involves buying another card for £30 to put in with your sim card, theis has the advantage that it "should" always work, no matter how many times apple update the firmware, read about it here:

Ebay seems to be the best at the moment, tho probably best to wait a while...

O2 are releasing the pay as you go version of the iPhone 3G on the 16th September and although its still going to be locked to 02 itll come with 12 months unlimited data and wifi access for £349 (8GB) and £399 (16GB) so expect the ebay prices to tumble (if they havent already!)
