    As it says in the title I'm still running the 1.1.4 firmware (Ziphone) on my phone...

    Has anybody gone directly to the 2.1 firmware from 1.1.4 (Ziphone) ?

    Did you encounter problems ?

    Is it better to first pwn the phone ?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated !

    Went from 1.1.4 unlocked with ziphone and upgraded using pwnage tool to 2.0, then from 2.0 to 2.0.1 then 2.0.2 and now with 2.1. Everything went great. Here is the tutorial I did for your case.

    OK, here is what you need to do if you have an iphone 2G with 3.9 bootloader and unlocked using ziphone. Therefore, never been pwned.
    -First, connect your current iphone to itunes. Back up everything. (Sync your accounts).
    -Next, go into user/library/itunes and create a folder named "device support". If its already there, then delete everything in it.
    -Now download the proper 2.0 ipsw file from this forum.
    -Donwload the 3.9 and 4.6 bin files from this forum.
    -Place everything on your desktop.
    -Download Pwnge 2.0
    -Open up pwnge 2.0
    -Select the first option (iphone) but in expert mode
    -browse your computer to locate the 2.0 ipsw file.
    -Next in general tab, use enable baseband update
    -In bootloader, checkmark the box for update the bootloader and checkmark upgrade to 4.6.
    -Finally, pick build and hit the next button.
    -Pwnage will ask you to locate both the 3.9 and 4.6 bin files. Locate them manually (Make sure they were unzipped first)
    -Then it will ask you to find a location to save the new custom ipsw file.
    -Hit save and Pwnage will build the custom firmware in the selected saved location.
    -Pwnage will ask you for your administrative password to finalize the process.
    -Once the process is done, you will get a prompt telling you to plus in your iphone using your usb.
    -Follow the steps on screen to put your phone into DFU mode.
    -Pwnage will tell you it successfully found your phone in DFU mode
    -Next, close Pwnage and open up Itunes.
    -Option click the restore button and locate your new custom firmware.
    -Let itunes do its thing.
    -Once the process is done, your iphone will boot into 2.0 software but don't touch it yet.
    -Bootloader will do its thing by flashing your iphone to the proper baseband (4.6)
    -Do not touch your computer while this is happening even if Itunes is asking you to set up a new iphone.
    -Once the flashing has been done, your phone will be unlocked, activated and jailbroken.
    -If you have two macs like I do, I did the pwnage on one and had my back up on another.
    -Plug in your iphone and itunes should tell you to restore your phone with previous settings (contacts, pictures etc.)
    -Choose, restore and let the iphone get all of your data back.
    -You will notice a new tab for application.
    -Checkmark "sync all applications".
    -Get your apps from the itunes store.

    Enjoy, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me @ [email protected]

    Using Rogers in Canada and the pwnage 2.1 worked flawlessly.

    Thanks, that what helpful.

    Moved 2G 1.1.4 pre-ZiPhoned phone to 2.2 with iTunes 8 on Mac using Pwnage tool with no big problems other than losing pictures, recent calls and emails. Just did a second restore and everything appeared as normal.
