    When it gets stuck at the waiting for reboot screen, unplug the cord from the computer and plug it right back in.

    Thanks Angiepangie.

    The restore as new worked. My battery has lasted almost 24 hours without need for a charge. I also turned Push off.

    I did loose all my settings for various WiFi passwords, notes, and text messages by setting up as new. Is there a way to get this back on the phone?

    DO NOT UNZIP!
    Change the .zip extension to .ipsw.

    New phone.

    When you synch with iTunes anything synched to iTunes will be restored.

    And one more question. When I synced first after redsn0wing was a question about where to take calendar data to restore. I marked none, but now I think can be good to restore those datas from outlook express. May be is possible to remark and synch with calendar datas???? thanks

    In your iPhone page in iTunes click on the info tab and scroll down to Calendars.

    You can synch you calendar with OE if you like - but don't you have proper Outlook?

    Yes I have Outlook Express and hope all the calendar data is in it because I'd syncing when was on 1.x.x. But after upgrade I noted "none" to synch my calendar and now I have it empty. And photos looks is lost... Don't know why, but before I upgrade I had near 1 GB photos but after 0.... All other things works greet. Really perfect solution!!!

    Calender data should be there - have you tried changing it?

    You can synch photos from your computer but the camera roll isn't synched - you have to copy them to your computer, but presumably you've done that anyway so you can synch them back.

    As I wrote before, in first synching after upgrading was schedule about from where to take data for it. And near calendar was written OE, but I marked to "none". So now I have written "no supported calendar app can be found". Is it possible to change this profile back to OE???
    About photos was in 1.x.x . I think it is lost, because I haven't copied it to PC, just synched...

    Did you follow the instructions in the first post exactly? If so your phone (2G) will be unlocked.
