I know this posting will bore a majority of my once a day blog readers. Bare with me since I’ve recently become obsessed with jailbreaking my iPhone.
So, my iTunes automatically (I think?!?) upgraded to iPhone firmware 2.2.1 from firmware 2.2. Great. It supposedly fixes some bugs – especially with Safari crashing. I’m all for that. But, it also ruins all the “work” you may have recently done jailbreaking your iPhone with QuickPwn.
The bad news: If you upgrade to iPhone software 2.2.1, there is supposedly no way to downgrade back to software 2.2 and your phone is restored to a pre-jailbreak state. Please correct me if I’m wrong in the comment section of my posting – I’ve done way too much searching tonight and haven’t found anything.
The good news: Your phone still works and will be restored to the pre-jailbroken state. The Dev-Team at QuickPwn – per their firmware 2.2.1 forum – expects to have a fix up and running within the next few days. After the upgrade from iPhone firmware 2.1 to 2.2 occurred, I guess it took them 3 days to get QuickPwn updated. We can obviously all wait a few days but where’s the donate button on their page?!?
Again, I’m new to jailbreaking but Apple must do this to simply fck around with hackers. If Apple wanted to help “Joe the iPhone User” out, they’d have a software upgrade that allows for copy/paste, landcape typing, a video recorder, etc. and then there would be no reason to jailbreak an iPhone. Ok, I take that back – there will always be a reason to hack something and make it better.
