how to go from 2.0.2 to 2.2.1 unlocked?
I want to jailbreak and unlock my iphone 3g but not sure what to do. I have fw 2.0.2/baseband 02.08.01. Can I just use the Preserving Baseband guide on the site or do I need to do something before that? Some sites say in order to use yellowsn0w, you have to be on baseband 02.28.00, is this true cuz mine is 02.08.01. I wish I could just update to 2.2 via itunes but 2.2.1 is out now. I'm not sure what steps I need to take in order to have the latest fw 2.2.1 installed and still be able to use yellowsn0w. Any help would be great, thanks.

Thanks for the tip. I checked out dev team blog and read that yellowsn0w only works on baseband 02.28.00. I think its kinda confusing since the guides on this site say you have to be on 2.2 or below. So now how do I update to 2.2? I need to do that before I jailbreak/unlock.

And to clarify what I just said here is a quote from the Dev Teams blog:
Yellowsn0w will NOT work with the baseband version (02.30.03) that is present in the recent 2.2.1 update. If you want to use Yellownsn0w you will need to create and restore using a custom .ipsw that will allow you to update safely to 2.2.1 without applying the 02.30.03 baseband update. You’ll then have a 3G iPhone running 2.2.1 with an older baseband version that is still vulnerable to yellowsn0w, following these steps ensures that yellowsn0w will still operate.

Hi, if you need a copy of the 2.2 firmware its available here www.marctew.co.uk/Archive.zip along with Quickpwn for Mac & Windows. Using this you can update through iTunes. When you click update, make sure you hold the Option key (if its mac) and i think its ALT for windows.
From what people have said, I think this will let you then unlock
Hope this helps.
The unlock works exclusively with baseband 02.28.00.
The unlock will silently quit on anything other than baseband 02.28.00. It detects the wrong version and just quits to avoid any damage.
And can someone confirm what appcritical said is true. Is that link safe?
Thanks for all the help so far.
