SIMple Way to UPGRADE to Firmware 2.1 (Win or MAC + iTunes8)


Oct 18, 2007
I already did this and tested from 4 iPhone classic. For 3G this will work also, just download a custom 2.1 Firmware for 3G and follow the instructions. (for 3G--=> )

1. DOWNLOAD a customize 2.1 Firmware for iPhone classic here MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

iPhone1_1_2.1_5F136_Custom_Restore.ipsw -- - free file hosting --

#From Aws3ya of team Applei
+ Will Activate / Jailbreak / and Unlock your iPhone
If WinterBoard and MIM didn't show up after the restore just reinstall WinterBoard and it will come out with the pre loaded themes and MIM too. Cfw comes with Openssh,openssl,Cydia sources Talking Alerts, five icon docks as well." - Aws3ya

2. USE iTunes 8 and let your iPhone be detected (even it is 1.1.2 or 1.1.1)

3.SHIFT + RESTORE (win) / option+restore (mac) then choose the customize FIRMWARE 2.1 you downloaded.

VIOLA & Dance (optional) ;-)

note: NO NEED to be on DFU mode or else there will be an error. I never had an error for the 4 iPhone i upgraded using this process.

Now if there will be an error use winpwn and follow the instruction, let winpwn make your iPhone to be on DFU mode then if it is now ready for restoring (with the logo of winpwn restore mode) instead of using the FW made by winpwn use the firmware 2.1 that i mentioned above (step1) through iTunes 8
