Stay away from iPhone 2.2.1 Update : Updates Baseband to 2.30.03, Breaks yellowsn0w!

27 January 2009 10 Comments

UPDATE : Custom Firmware comes to the rescue.

Apple sneaked in a worthless firmware update (2.2.1) to thwart the attempts of Dev Team to unlock the iPhone 3G via software means. Please stay away from the update till a patched firmware without the baseband update is released. I repeat, baseband cannot be downgraded and since Apple patched the baseband exploit, 2.30.03 which comes as a surprise with 2.2.1 is not unlockable by any means at this time. Save yourself some headaches and enjoy your iPhone as you are till yesterday! Any prompt for updates should be ignored.

iPhone firmware update 2.2.1 improves the stability of MobileSafari. The firmware also fixes an issue where images saved from Mail.app sometimes display improperly in the camera roll. We can definitely live without these updates but yeah, a patched firmware is the key to all the yellowsn0w hopefuls!

    Never jailbroke my iPhone I always update. After 2.2.1 update I tested out Restore for first time and now it doesn't work. I looked up online and sounds like I've been F ed by Apple for the first time. My virgin iPhone. Damn you Apple I hate you I wish someone smarter comes along and saves us all from this F ed up business driven world!!!
