    First of all hello.

    I am a new iphone user, got it 2 weeks ago.
    I bought it from a second hand phone shop unlocked and in settings/general/about it says it is version 1.1.3(4A93). I asked if it was 2nd gen and was told it was,but after asking on a IRC channel someone said if it was silver on the back its a 1st gen iphone. Cydia is installed,but i have a basic version as it says "you are using iphone os 1,x ect ect you are strongly advised to upgrade to iphoneos 2.x using pwnage tool".

    So my questions are
    1.how can i find out if i have 1g or 2g ?
    2. Can i upgrade ?
    3. How (in very basic instructions) do i do it

    If anyone can help me and they are very patient i would be grateful

    1g iphone is silver on the back. 2g iphone is white or black on the back. If the back of ur iphone is silver u have 1g and will need to buy a new iphone that the back of is white or black if u want an upgrade.

    Edit:By upgrade did u mean the software or hardware? You can upgrade ur 1.1.3 to a more up to date version if that's whatyou mean
