OK guys,

UK Spec 1st Gen iPhone activated on O2 with V2.0.1 s/w, Windows Vista PC (Ultimate 32bit), usb direct connection (i.e. not through a hub), WinPwn V2.0.0.4, iPhone V2.0.1 original ipsw file (1.1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore) downloaded from Apple.

Using the instructions, printed out and followed to the letter so no custom logos, no Cydia, just Installer 2.0 and You Tube Fix. On Advanced tab, selected Activate, Enable Baseband Update, Neuter Bootloader and Unlock Baseband.

ipsw Builder completes and I pwn iTunes and get confirmation.

On putting the iPhone into DFU mode, iTunes asks to restore, I press SHIFT+Restore to select the custom ipsw and off we go but after about 5 mins I get a failure Unexpected Error (6). The notes indicate this is due to custom logos but I am not using any.

Restoring with the original 2.0.1 ipsw works fine.

What am I doing wrong or not doing?

Thanks,

No takers? I would have thought someone may have offered up some advice.... :-(

My son's replacement MacBook Pro has arrived this morning (typing this reply on it now!)

I will try via the Mac route to see if that cures the issues....

If anyone has any ideas, I'm still open to suggections, my wife's phone needs updating to V2.0.1 too but needs to remain unlocked and Jailbroken hence mine's the guinea pig!

Are you sure you're in DFU mode?
Error 6 means you're in recovery mode, not DFU.
(If you see the iTunes logo on the iPhone - you're in recovery)

Hope it helps

Thanks oren1,

It definitely started in DFU but part of the process then changes it and the Apple logo was appearing. I then assume I made the mistake of carrying on trying to restore with the iPhone in restore mode! :roll:

All sorted now but I will be aiming to do my wife's 1st gen device this weekend! Let the fun continue! :)

Yes all done but did it on my son's MacBook Pro. Then did a QuickPWN under Windows (Vista) when I went to V2.0.2 to jailbreak and activate.

Both my Vista PC and the MacBook Pro are using iTunes V7.7.1.11 and the Mac version happily accepted DFU mode to PWN it and the PC version also accepted it when I ran QuickPWN.

I just use winpwn 2.5. They made it newbie friendly and it was easy to understand and use.

If it's slow, then you screwed up somewhere. I had that problem when I first tried to JB my phone. I just restored it and then tried JB again, after the restore. Second time worked better, it was fast and now slow like the first time.

For one I don't think you need the partition size anything like 800MB - 512 should be ample.

I've not expeienced any slow downs on either my iPhone nor my wife's.

I have the original Edge iPhone. I've used the Pwnge tool before. I upgraded to the v2.1 software and then attempted to use the Pwnge tool. No matter what I do, it tells I don't have the correct Bootloader file. It is asking for "Bootloader v3.9". I've tried downloading from multiple mirrors, BL-39.bin and BL-46, and I haven't had any luck. The only firmware option I have is "iPhone1,1_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw. I'm assuming this is the correct firmware.

Am I am missing something?

You have the correct ipsw file. I used the latest pwnage tool as I already had the Bootloader files still on the MacBook from last time it didn't ask for them - it just used them. I'm all done (did mine and my wife's first gen devices).

My bootloader files are just in a Bootloader folder where my pwnage files are....
