How to Upgrade Unofficial iPhone 2.0 Firmware to Official 2.0 Firmware

Illustration for article titled How to Upgrade Unofficial iPhone 2.0 Firmware to Official 2.0 Firmware

Macrumors has a useful post on how you can upgrade (downgrade, technically) from the leaked "iPhone1,2" firmware to the official "iPhone1,1" firmware issued early this morning. The leaked firmware was intended to only for use with iPhone 3G before it got out to the masses. In short, you need to download the correct firmware, and hold down the option key when you check for firmware updates in iTunes, allowing you to pick the file you want to install. [Macrumors]

DISCUSSION

more details...

I have the 1.2... made available as a direct dl from giz.

where, my friends, shall I find 1.1 so I can use it on my first gen?

Second:

I'm wondering, if 1.2 is for both, why am I not supposed to use it/doesn't it work?

Third:

wtf??? -> are we still actually talking about upgrading iUnits to 2.0 even though we've all been told to wait??? (thinking PwnageTool...)
