    I found this entry on bigboss's site. It is ONLY for installing 2.1 jailbroken on the 2G and 3G iPhone. Note that it is recommended for advanced users with a WINDOWS PC. Also thanks to Geeb for finding this out originally. This guide is for contract carrier subscribers only. If you are unlocking your 2g, wait for another method.


    Update: I wrote a quick app and added it to Cydia to solve the icons not showing up after Cydia issue.- BigBoss

    This is not the easiest guide, but it is for expert users and early adopters that have a 3g and Windows. The guide is courtesy of Geeb.

    Step 1) Download the 2.1 3G firmware or 2G Firmware

    Step 2) Install itunes v8 - you can get all versions of iTunes here.

    Step 3) Update the iphone with iTunes and make sure it is activated!

    Step 4) Uninstall iTunes v8

    Step 5) Uninstall Apple Mobile Device Support (From Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel)

    Step 6) Install itunes v7.7.*

    Step 7) Download quickpwn with the correct 2.1 bundle inside it here.

    Step 8) Run quickpwn…select your iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw or iPhone1,1_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw from step 1.

    Step 9) You can select cydia and installer and logos if you wish

    Step 10) When it is finished the phone will reboot…Cydia and Installer will NOT be visible

    Step 11) Download TotalCommander and t-pot addon

    Step 12) Install TotalCommander and in the left pane navigate to T-PoT.1.1.zip and click on it. It will install t-pot automatically.

    Step 13) Download the mobileinstallation patch

    Step 14) Use Totalcommander to install patched mobileinstallation to /System/Library/PrivateFrameWorks/MobileInstallation.framework … clickon the dropdown box [--] top left and select network neighborhood then t-pot. Reme,ber to back up your original mobileinstallation first!

    Step 15) Install “CacheDel” from cydia. Run this after each Cydia update. Soon, Cydia, itself will be updated and this step will no longer be necessary.

    Thanks to Geeb and the #xpwn crew…

    Trying now.....iTunes 8 wants to do a ghey a$$ backup first so I've got to sit through that....will update as progresses. Someone posted comment over on bigboss' site saying he got Cydia to show up on Springboard but no apps installed through Cydia would appear on Springboard....that kinda concerns me....going forward anyway though.

    Yeah, it was just updated on BB site that 3rd party apps don't show up. But a fix is being looked into.

    UPDATE:
    One person made a comment that
    Turns out that after installing any apps through Cydia, you need to repeat steps 15 and 16 before they show up on the Springboard. Good times.

    I'm waiting to hear back from the guy if that's the case after EACH 3rd party app install through Cydia or if you only have to repeat those two steps just the once after the initial app install.....

    Works fine.

    AMAZING!

    Thanks to Geeb at Hackint0sh!

    ----
    May I add
    "Step 17) Install “CacheDel” from cydia. Run this after each Cydia update. Soon, Cydia, itself will be updated and this step will no longer be necessary."

    This solves the need for steps 15&16 each time, as it can be done from the phone itself until a fix is made.

    BigBoss has added the app "CacheDel" on Cydia which allows you to delete the cache files faster.

    @ ilove red, how do you install the 2.1 Bundles?

    Use the link, which has the correct 2.1 files. Open it with WinRar, then just open the QuickPwn inside the folder.
