    Hi, so i want to put some apps on my iphone 2g but it won't let me. i think its because im running software version 1.1.3? shall i update it 2.2.1 or something like that? but if i do that will it still be jailbroken and unlocked?

    Cheers

    U need to update it via itunes and then jailbreak and unlock again (at least that's what i did!)

    2.2.1 won't let you sim unlock depending on baseband and rom version so best to steer clear if you don't know what you're doing (that said I'm guessing it having 1.1.3 means it's second hand?)

    EDIT:
    In which case yes 2.2.1 will be fine, jailbreak and install fuzzy from Cydia, that will downgrade your baseband, then install yellowsn0w from cydia, that will sim unlock you, but be warned when 3.0 comes out in july it wil again render your sim unlock useless until BigBoss team work out another work around.

    Not sure if it's iphone or itouch but onoe of them the 2.0+Fw costs £10 from itunes

    best to find a 2.2 IPSW from online and manual update in itunes by hitting shitft + update and selecting the IPSW you downloaded

    You will then need qwkpwn to jailbreak again

    Yeah its 2nd hand, i bought it off the for sale/trade bit.

    so if i do update it then i would have to jail break it and unlock it? is this hard to do or just simply install numerous programs?

    Cheers guys

    Yup update in itunes, then run qwkpwn (use google) and follow the onscreen instructions, basically it involves pressing a sequence of the home and power buttons.

    Once done, Cydia wil be installed and you can use that like the app store to find in this order):

    A) Fuzzy (baseband downgrade) Run (can uninstall after)
    B) Yellowsn0w ( sim unlock) (can uninstall after)
    c) Mobile installation file - will allow you install IPA files from Appulo.

    It's the ipod touch...apple wanted me to pay to upgrade...not sure if it's the same with the iphone. If it is, use this:
