Use this link for 2.0.1 firmware

First thing you want to do is get your 2.0.1 firmware direct from Apple. This can be done by going into iTunes and click restore. It will then download the 2.0.1 firmware. After it starts the download disconnect your iPhone. Once it is done downloading close iTunes.
Next, do this little trick to get it to work properly.
"Update 3: If you get Error 1600 from iTunes (or if you see in your log a failure to prepare x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw), try: mkdir ~/Library/iTunes/”Device Support” ; if that directory already exists, remove any files in it. Then re-run PwnageTool. "
All this means is to create the directory "Device Support" in the directory user name/Library/iTunes/"Device Support". That was the only issue I ran into and it did the trick. Got into DFO mode properly and it was a go. I suggest doing this before you even run the tool.
Now connect the iPhone and start the PWNAGE tool... Choose simple mode unless you know what you are doing.
Once it is done creating your custom firmware it will put it on your desktop.
Follow the directions it gives you and in iTunes click restore while holding down the option key and select the firmware that you created and saved to your desktop... let it do it's magic.
Questions? Ask... I will help you if I can.

Other than unlocking so someone can use the iphone on a different non-supported carrier....what are the benefits of unlocking and jailbreaking the iphone. In the past, it was so that one could install 3rd party apps, but so far most of my needs have been filled by the app store.
Can you all tell me why you are breaking it open and why I should? ie. what is the benefit to you and/or what 3rd party apps should I be seeking out for a jailbroken phone?
