Nicely done! 1.1.4 or 2.0 unlocked? I'll be putting my V1 up for sale shortly and I'm hoping 2.0 unlocked will help bring up the sale price...
well i had a HORRIBLE time downgrading to 1.1.4, but i was able to do it, message me and i can provide you a tutorial on how to do it. it probably took me about 7 hours to figure out but i finally got it. i then jailbroke and unlocked using ziPhone, removed the sim and shipped it out earlier today. as far as i know 2.0 isn't unlocked yet so 1.1.4 is a must if you want to sell it like that.

My phone is on 2.0 and its unlocked. Pwnage 2.0 also unlocks V1 iPhones

As Pepe said it was a pain in the butt to downgrade but thats what I did and unlocked (hopefully) and JB'd.

It may bring up the price a little to go 2.0 unlock when it comes out but im afraid that the iPhone v1 prices could go down at anytime.

Also, not everyone is getting over $400 for their V1. It depends on the condition of your phone and how well you can use ebay....Oh, and great pics don't hurt either.

I'm sorry to hear you had such a hard time downgrading! I have to say this is something I probably won't try. I did upgrade my V1 to 2.0 and used the Pwnage tool on Sunday night to unlock and jailbreak it (Pwnage can unlock the V1 iPhones, but not the 3G ones yet). I'm just hoping that 2.0 on a V1 phone will be more attractive (and get more bidders) than one with 1.1.4...

Then that was a great price for a V1 phone with 1.1.4! I hope 2.0 does bring up prices more, but I agree that the V1's will go down in value once the 3G's can be unlocked... :(

Yeah do it people, sold my 16 gig for $515, an it wasn't even unlocked or jailbroken at all. Had it been, would of been over 6 bills easily.

well if you decide for whatever reason to downgrade to 1.1.4 hit me up via pm and i can give you the guide that worked for me. i would think 2.0 would be much more marketable but who knows. best of luck to you.

Just sold mine as a buy it now on Ebay for 350. I'm wondering if I should have made it higher. Why are they selling for so much? Thee 3g is almost to the point that it will be unlockable like the 1 gen.
