Word on the street is PC users can download a pwnd ipsw and do the upgrade through the previous version of winpwn if they 1) are still on 1.1.4 and 2) have pwnd before.

I'm on a mac, so yeh, I'm already on 2.0 jb :)

Is there any way you know of to keep abreast of 2.0JB recodes as they come out? I'm obviously looking for a few key players to make the jump before I dive into it.

Hmmmm...love the guide...easy enough....and great pics!

Now---question, when this comes out for PC is it going to be the same steps?

One more question-- Once I have that done, do I them load that summer thing so I can get themes?

For the most part, I was visiting the Dev Team's unofficial blog a few times a day over at http://blog.iphone-dev.org . For updates to their app, I just enabled Auto Update when prompted the first time I launched Pwnage.

As far as other builds are concerned, i.e. ZiPhone or something by GeoHotz, I just check the usual places, mmi, jaib, and ia.

Pwnage is pretty simple, and since its done through iTunes, its probably going to be my only means for a JB.

Theres no word yet on a WinPwn version, if you're on PC (I don't recall), but people have been finding ways around that with a precompiled custom firmware and the older version of winpwn.

On a side note, you're not missing anything. After having a go with this a few times, the only thing I have to say for it all is my NES back. That probably wont be much reason for most people to jump ship and JB just yet, but for me its one of my most frequented apps, so I found the risk worth it for now.

Thanks, 999, but I meant is anyone keeping track of which apps in installer/cydia are 2.0-compatible now?

can anyone post a custom 3g ipsw made from PwnageTool 2.0 with the activate box unchecked in expert options? Would be much appreciated since I cannot get this tool to run on my mac...Thanks again!

Summerboard isn't available on the 2.0 firmware, yet.

There is a guide posted by another member HERE that tells how to use pwnage on your PC. Use at your own risk. Good Luck!
