Confirmed, if you have iPhone 2.0.2 pwned and working, this 2.1 update will work, I have done this on my iPhone and its working unlocked and activated, just choose check for update and let iTune update the firmware and you are ready to rock again.

You forgot to mention that you lose the jailbreak, cydia, installer and all 3rd party apps.

Thanks for the update, even though I have updated my iPhone to 2.1 and its working, I am currently downloading QuickPwn tool, and will be jailbreaking in an hour so so to get the Cydia and cycorder, this application and SSH access make me go the Jailbreaking way.

Have the 3rd party apps been ported yet? I read somewhere that 2.1 was a bit different so the Snapture team had to re-code stuff. Just wondering...

Those who have Windows OS can get their Iphone upgraded to 2.1 without the use of Pwnage or QuickPwn(as it is still not out).On some torrent sites the customized firmware is put up,download it and restore your Iphone using either Itunes 7.7 or 8 thats it.Got my phone upgraded last night using this method and it is working fine.

I thought you needed iTunes 8 to install and sync the new firmware.

I would have upgraded to 2.1 firmware, but some of the apps are not yet ported According to a friend, he felt a massive difference while running his phone on the new firmware. Hope the apps get ported soon. cheers:
