This instruction is for flashing 2G phones with version 2.1 and jailbreak (Jailbreak) 3G phones with Installer and Cydia programs. Firmware and jailbreak is carried out by the QuickPwn program which can work with both previous phone models iPhone and 3G. The difference in actions is insignificant, QuickPwn itself recognizes the model and displays only the necessary windows for control. For 2G phones, this update can be done with firmware 1.1.4. If version 2.0.1 is installed, is it worth updating to 2.1? If everything works well for you, then probably not. In my case, this is due to the fact that after installing and removing a huge number of programs, the phone began to slow down terribly. Some applications, including safari, suddenly crashed. After updating the firmware to 2.1, everything works stably. There are no visual differences, programs under 2.1 usually have a version under 2.0.1. I only know a couple of such exceptions. After flashing, contacts and history are not deleted, in addition, programs installed from the app Store (ipa) are not deleted. Only programs installed from Cydia and Installer are erased.
