Does anyone know yet whether iTunes 8.1 will affect a jb'ed unlocked iPhone (2G) or not? I'm cautious about installing it in case it messes up my syncing in some way or undoes any of the iPhone mods.
Many thanks for any advice.

I don't have any experience, but my guess would be no. I *think* the only thing that would affect a jb'ed iPhone would be a firmware upgrade....i.e 2.1 to 2.2

Can't say firsthand, but I've heard nothing through the normal channels yet, and we would have by now. I think you're good to go.

Only reason I asked is because my girlfriend's 3G is still on 2.1 (jailbreak only)...I'm confused on upgrading (jailbreak and unlock) it to 2.2.1

BTW, I'm doing this on her Windoze box...

I use Linux.

No probs i guess, does the making of ringtones changed?

Does it have support for Linux?

Wait you can only unlock 2.2.0 and below not 2.2.1


Anyways iTunes 8.1 is safe just don't upgrade to 2.2.1 yet.

Thanks folks. I really appreciate not being the guinea pig as I rely so much on my iPhone and due to constant travel cannot always have wifi connection that enables me to re-pwn and rebuild my setup on it.
Again... thank you.

On the 3g iPhone this is true 2.2.0 is the latest unlockable firmware but a 1st gen iPhone 2.2.1 is unlockable.

Is there a tutorial for updating the 3G to 2.2.0?
