I've managed to get Exchange working on my iPhone 1st gen just now, seems to work well, contacts are syncing, as is the calendar.  That's about all I use exchange for so I'm happy to be able to use my work email on my iphone without being tethered to iTunes whenever I want to sync some updated contact info etc.  MobileMe works well too - pushes personal email straight to my pocket. 

I'm stoked with how well the 2.0 upgrade has gone.  Only hope that 2.0.1 goes as well once Apple decide they're going to iron out the operational issues with the current firmware.

shaneblyth:
mailmarshall: The interesting thing is that if you have an IPOD touch with jailbroken software and you check for updates in Itunes it will ask you to pay US$9 for the upgrade to 2.0.

The Iphone 2.0 firmware upgrade doesn't ask for this - wonder why?


because Apple charges for the ipod touch update but not the iphone one for some reason only known to them

The reason is (and this was from an Apple engineer at WWDC'08) is that under the new US accounting laws for public companies, companies are not allowed to give away free any product which also appears as an asset on their books. The iPhone firmware updates are OK because they are covered by a subscription model, whereas the iPod is an outright purchase. It seems if you are an iPod owner who resents paying for the update, you can curse Kenneth Lay and Enron for this one.

I'm trying to upgrade to 2.0, however when I go to build the custom .ipsw pwnagetool does not ask me to locate the bootloaders.
Should this prompt come up straight after I click the blue arrow button, or does it come up some time during the .ipsw is being built?

djpaubes: anyone gone to 2.0 using windoze yet?


Yeah, I've done quite a few (like 10 iPhones 1st Gen). Never encountered any problems at all. I didn't include Cydia, it slows down the iPhone sometimes. App Store has got some pretty good stuff, mostly FREE. :)

I used Winpwn, iTunes 7.7 and the firmware iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw

Good luck mate!

cheers dude

I might have a crack 2nite. I use ziphone to get to 1.1.3. So I presume I use winpwn to restore the phone first then back up?
Man I cant remember what version BL I had either haha.

I followed the instructions on http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1572

and I'm getting an 1600 error on itunes during the restore.. had these issues before?

Should the sim card be in the phone during restore?

Never had that problem in Windoze XP. I also read a lot of people had problems with Vista.

Cheers! Cool

You can remove the sim card during restore. The problem is that your phone has not been properly set into recovery mode.

It seems to go into DFU mode as Itunes recongnizes it.... failed after about 5mins.

I'm currently ziphone 1.1.3 so do I need to blow that away first?

No need for that. How did you setup your iPhone in DFU mode?

Sounds alright. What version of winpwn are you using? Take a look here http://tinyurl.com/5k4kkl to see if the solution here solves your problem.
