    i have a first gen 16gb iphone that i used ziphone on a yr ago to unlock...back when i was keeping up it said dont update iphone firmware past 1.1.4 and dont update itunes.,....i am cool with the way my phone is now and dont want to update iphone due to hassle and possible error...heres my issue --got a brand new 32gb touch that when i connect it says needs itunes 8.0 or higher.....so my question is can i update itunes to 8.0 and not mess up my iphone that is still running on 1.1.4...or will that itunes update jack up the old hacking ziphone software?


    thanks very much for any input.

    You should upgrade to 2.2.1 and use yellowsn0w to unlock it.
    Then you can use iTunes 8.x without any problems.

    Just update everything to the latest versions (iPhone and iTunes).

    Also, you can't use YellowSn0w on a 2G. You'll have to use QuickPwn (assuming you are on a PC).

    please correct me if im wrong....1st - go to ziphone software and put phone to dfu mode, then go to itunes and restore phone , then update to newest 2.2.1(?)...then use quickpwn(which i know nothing about) to re-unlock phone...then update itunes to 8.0.....does this sound right?

    thanks

    I would update iTunes.

    Then do a factory restore to the iPhone (not a bad idea to put it into DFU mode but you can do it without ZiPhone).

    Then use QuickPwn or Pwnage tool (depending on your computer) to jailbeak and unlock it.
