    Alright, I bought a 1st Gen iPhone last February, March sometime and unlocked/jailbroke/activated via ZiPhone using I beleive 1.1.3. Everything has been working fine, no problems, whatsoever, to a while for T-mobile Edge to activate, but other than that, no problems.

    NOW, I want this app that is only available in the AppStore. I want to upgrade to 2.1 or whatever the newest firmware is on this 1st Gen.

    Here is my understanding of what to do...

    1. Restore using iTunes 8.0
    2. Then upgrade using iTunes 8.0
    3. Then re-jailbreak/unlock/activate

    Correct?

    I have been searching the web for a while and I dont know who to trust to do step 3 for the firmware 2.1.

    Anyone know of one that is non technical user friendly? I completely dont understand all the iPhone jargon. What you have seen in this thread as far as iPhone jargon, is what I know, beyond that, no clue. I would prefer to do basically a 1 click and your done thing like ZiPhone for step 3, and am willing to pay, I dont care. But I dont think ZiPhone can do that for me, I dont know...?

    Help?

    You got it. The ONLY method out right now is Quickpwn for WinPC. There's a huge thread about it on the Home page here. Read up.

    good question, the appstore is the only reason I want 2.1, if I am using Tmobile, will the appstore still work? And with all these cfws running around, do they have the appstore?

    I finally got 2.1 working, only took about 30 minutes from downloading the phantom cfw to shift+restore in iTunes to uploading the bootlader and baseband, all was well.

    As far as the appstore, it works just fine with Tmobile, it still goes through your iTunes account for purchases, not ATT
