Firmware 2.2 download links

Written By Unknown on Saturday, November 22, 2008 | 6:24 AM


For those who want to upgrade to Firmware 2.2 without jailbreaking their iPhone or iPod Touch, I've posted the download links here.

Remember to update to firmware 2.2 all you need to do is:
1. Launch iTunes
2. Click update and choose your firmware 2.2 IPSW file
3. iTunes will take care of the rest! :)

If you want to restore to firmware 2.2 or another firmware all you need to do is:
1. Launch iTunes
2. Shift-click Restore for Windows users and option-click restore for Mac users
3. Choose your .IPSW file that you want to restore to
4. iTunes will do the rest!

(Caution if you upgrade to iPhone 3G 2.2 you won't be able to unlock your iPhone 3G)

November 23, 2008 at 3:52 AM

I have the same problem, my CYDIA WONT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING!
What could I be doing wrong? I've tried QuickPwn and Pwnage and I get the same results.

try to check your network settings...

November 24, 2008 at 8:18 AM

This is not network related issue.
I had the same problem. couldn't download or install many apps like MxTube after upgraded to 2.2. I ended up downgraded to 2.1.

November 24, 2008 at 10:10 AM

November 24, 2008 at 4:51 PM

same here i downloaded and did everything as i did before and my phone crashed had to restore! whats going on?????????

November 24, 2008 at 7:52 PM

I have a iphone 3g 2.1 jailbroken with qwkpwn. Cydia has never worked for me (it just crashes when launching) and non of the installaer apps have really made me happy, So now with firmware 2.2 offering podcast downloads, and Vodafone in NZ arn't allwed to lock the phones, the only feature I want is to use as a data router, but not super critical to me at this time. Can I simply do a normal iTunes upgrade to the 2.2 firmware and jailbreak again later if I want to or do I have to recover to a default 2.1 firmware first before upgrading?

November 25, 2008 at 4:24 AM

Anyone updated the firmware without reading? I did, and I miss the part were 3G don't work. Ouch :(

Can we roll back to firmware 2.1 from 2.2? If so, can you help with a how-2 or a link?

thanks in advance.

November 25, 2008 at 1:18 PM

I unlocked the phone after upgrading to 2.2, but when I inserted a T-Mobile SIM card, it does not work.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

November 25, 2008 at 9:56 PM

I updated iphone 3g from i tunes to 2.2 (windows) and tried to jailbreak, now i can't restore, downgrade or anything... any suggestions?
ıf yes please mail

thanks in advance

November 26, 2008 at 4:30 AM

hey you kadir@dream-box.tv

to downgrade set to DFU mode,then restore with iTunes....before u update PLEASE read the limitations....my GOD its mention above...you know you guys if you fing out there's a new FW you just go through all the forums, browse and you know what you're looking JUST the download link of the latest FW!!! these guys who built and post some advice in this forums are helping you and giving some warnings but you don't know how to read...come on!!! it's mentioned how many times.

ps for those who downloaded .zip just change file extension to .ipsw OKAY!?!?!

November 26, 2008 at 6:52 PM


**in case you updated already dont even bother downgrading to 2.0 or 2.1 or EVEN 1.1.3 (if thts possible i dunno) but even if u downgrade the sim adapter will not work so no unlcoking capability REASON IS BECAUSE AS SOON U CLICK UPDATE 2.2 IT WILL install a MODEM FIRMWARE to check if you are fucked click SETTINGS> GENERAL> ABOUT, THEN navigate all the way down to "Modem Firmware"......

Jailbreaking will work but it wont unlock the phone what so ever

**Ziphone doesnt work to unlock or downgrade the baseband either so dont bother iven trying all possiblilites over 27 times still counting ( inlcudes downgrading jailbraking etc.)
there is a solution to the fix, which includes $$....theres this site saying you have to buy a sim adapter v3 it will be released this morning...i dont know what the fuck im doing up so late lol just updating my ipod touch 2nd gen lol anyway!

***mail me at dgmxviana@gmail.com to get the site
reason being cuz i dont want the siteto close down!!!!***

November 29, 2008 at 3:22 AM

I have a 1st gen unlocked / jailbroken iPhone running 1.x firmware with a T-Mobile SIM. I'd like to upgrade to 2.x firmware. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to do this? Do I first upgrade to 2.2 firmware, un-jailbreaking my phone, then re-break it? Or is there a way to upgrade the firmware without un-jailbreaking it?

November 29, 2008 at 6:43 PM

So...I have Iphone 3g and with ATT as my carrier...I can upgrade to 2.2 right and run quickpwn because I don't care about "unlocking" right because I'm already with ATT???

December 1, 2008 at 10:13 AM


i went from 2.0.2 to 2.2 and upgraded to the newest version of itunes.

my phone works fine on t-mobile but everytime i try to connect it to ITUNES the phone cycles itself off.

it did it with both itunes 7.7 and the new version?

what do i do


December 2, 2008 at 8:14 AM

when you select the .ipsw in quickpwn make sure you select the one you downloaded and not the one in the default folder and it should work fine

December 2, 2008 at 9:57 AM

if i update firmware 2.2 for ipod 2.2, anyway i can continue jailbreaking ?

December 2, 2008 at 3:16 PM

After downloading the firmware, I clicked on it and it only opens iTunes. My ipod is connected and all. And when I tried to open Quickpwn, it said I need to download the firmware which I did

December 2, 2008 at 6:42 PM

so many negative comments... so y in cydia some of the newest apps says it runs ONLY on 2.2...? quite contradicting...

December 3, 2008 at 8:32 AM

And these are the two file names:

Can somebody help me? When I try to open firmware 2.2 for an iphone 2g, Quickpwn says that I am trying to open firmware 2.0.2...

The Iphone was updated to 2.2 with itunes and the official firmware.

December 11, 2008 at 6:03 AM

If i have the 2.0 firmware when i restore with the 2.2 firmware does it delete all my apps ive downloaded?

December 11, 2008 at 6:40 AM

I updated my iphone 3G to the 2.2 firmware using Itunes and I'm looking to jailbreak my phone. Do I select the link that says the iPhone or the Iphone 3G?

Btw, This isn't my first attempt. The first time I tried this, I selected the 3G firmware and when I ran quickpwn, everything was fine until the end when i had to reboot the phone. My phone just kept on continuosly rebooting and rebooting and rebooting...until it died. Until, recently I thought jalibreaking wouldn't come to mind, but w/e I'll try it again

December 11, 2008 at 11:28 AM

ive been trying to find a solution. i upgraded to 2.2 firmware and when i load quickpwn it keeps stopping at the part where u put the phone in dfu mode. my phone is then stuck on restore mode where i have to restore it or else i cant do anything im going to try with out simcard but i cant go back to haveing regular phone hopefully someone can point me in the right direction

Anyone can help to solve this

December 13, 2008 at 3:48 AM

I have tried everything to get my iphone 1st generation too unlock. I downgraded to 2.1 and used pwng tool. I also tried ziphone. I have apparently jailbroken my iphone, because i have cydia and installer on my phone. The problem is that when my T-Mobile sim is in the phone I cannot sync up to my iTunes. So I can have aphone or an ipod. Can somebody help

December 15, 2008 at 1:33 AM

Hey Guys ...

I have finally done it. If you guys are facing any problems with unlocking, do let me know my email is omar.arif@yahoo.com. It took around 12 hours for me to unlock it but I will let you know the procedure. catch ya all soon.


December 15, 2008 at 7:53 PM

Quickpwn 2.2 DOES not work any better than 2.1; In both cases I get to the point where it says "waiting for iphone to connect in recovery mode". In both cases nothing else happens. I am surprised that the developers did NOT fix this problem when upgrading quickpwn to address the 2.2 software update. Apparently lots of people have this problem but nobody can provide a solution that WORKS. I tried almost every suggestion that there is but nothing works. "WILL THE PROGRAM DEVELOPERS ACTUALLY LOOK AT THIS ISSUE OR CONTINUE TO IGNORE IT"!!!!!!!!!!!!

December 15, 2008 at 8:57 PM

Hi I hav an I-Touch 8GB model no A1288 well I vud love to jail break it ...its of version 2.2. I tried using Quick pawn but ver to locate the firmware bundle?? pls somebody help me on this

I got my iPhone 3G and updated via iTunes to the 2.2 version. I didn´t knew that it was a problem.

Is still possible for me to jailbreak/unlock my iPhone? If yes, can someone tell me how?

I'm having a lot of troubles, including error on opening the quickpwn 2.2 =/

December 19, 2008 at 8:26 AM

HI, umm i have a i-touch second generation and is a 8gb, and i think it automatically updated the firmeware and now is 2.2 but i don't know how to jailbreak it, i already have the quickpwn program but it asked for the ispw file, and i dont have anyy idea wat they are talking about and i was wondereing if u can help, e-mail me ASAP at fiona808@hotmail.com

December 19, 2008 at 8:30 AM

ohhh ya my verson is 5g77a
e-mail me at fiona808@hotmail.com

December 21, 2008 at 8:34 AM

Hey guys, if anyone is still having problems JAILBREAKING or even UNLOCKING their iPod or iPhone on 2.2 give me an e-mail. mrwashboard@hotmail.com

As i have successfully unlocked the 3g 2.2 firmware with a Turbo Sim (it was 18 dollars free shipping on Ebay, and it took freaking 12 days for it to get to me...but it works!)

As for Jailbreaking, It works the EXACT same way as it did before, just make sure that you have the ipsw file in your itunes ipod or iphone update folder and it will automatically find your ipsw, or save it locally, like your desktop and browse for it. You download the ipsw's from here, OR if you have NOT upgraded to 2.2 through itunes then you can get a modified version of the ipsw from demonoid or your favorite torrent provider.

Other than that, if you have questions then e-mail me, as i will NOT be keeping an eye on this bulletin, so ANY comments to me MUST be e-mailed to me.

good luck, and happy hunting. (oh, and one more thing, with the new piggy back sims that are available, you can use the 3g option now!). peace!

December 21, 2008 at 10:47 AM

I have a i-touch second generation and I updated the firmware and now is 2.2
In quickpwn it ask me for the correct ipsw
which my folder gives me iPod2,1_2.2_5G77a_Restore.ipsw
but quickpwn is saying firmware error string.
Cam anyone help me, I really want to jail break my i-touch
PLZ email me at darkrose0101@gmail.com
Thank you <3

December 24, 2008 at 4:06 AM

whats up peeps...

I tried quick pawn. everything installed correctly, but it does not recognize my sim card. I have read many conflicting documents and am looking for a few straight answers. Possible firmware problems? Please advise, thank you

December 24, 2008 at 7:08 AM

i would love to jailbreak my 3g iphone but for some reason i cant get it work everybody else can play with thier iphone i want to tooo!

December 25, 2008 at 3:33 PM

Can you jailbreak a 8G iPod Touch 2nd generation?

December 25, 2008 at 4:33 PM

Not Yet This sucks chronic dev is just releasing the iphone 3g jailbreak and now they say that they will not work on ipod touch 2g for the next 4 weeks so don't wait around !

December 25, 2008 at 5:29 PM

That sucks, yeah I got my new iPod Touch for Christmas and I was looknig forward to getting some of those cools Apps, but I guess I will have to wait around. If I'm not mistaken, from what you said, by Feb. it should be possibl to jailbreak it?

December 25, 2008 at 6:28 PM

Going to fork out the epic 4$ to get the apps I want then.
Jailbreak is nice if you want 10 apps or more, but it's simpler to just buy your app if you just want 1-2. Especially if it involves waiting 2 months.

December 25, 2008 at 9:38 PM



December 25, 2008 at 11:08 PM

wäre es nicht möglich anstelle eines Jailbreak 2g einfach einen Apple Server zu emulieren, der dem Ipod vorspielt das die Software original ist ?!

December 26, 2008 at 11:53 AM

when is the 2nd gen ipod touch jail break going to be out????

December 26, 2008 at 6:06 PM

Please put your files on torrent, gnutella, eDonkey and etc and PLEASE put the CHECKSUM here.
I spent 2 day to download them from the websites, with no result.
I wanted to get them from the torrent network, but I was not sure if the files were the same.

December 30, 2008 at 2:28 PM

The program doesn't work with 2nd generation iPod touch yet. That's probably where the firmware error string problem is coming from. Just sit tight until a new solution is released I guess.

December 30, 2008 at 4:01 PM

wow that 7th grader needs to seriously get the crap kicked out of him, i mean seriously kid... grow a pair, get an education and then come out with a better program. Only then can you say that kind of stuff. Kids like you are need to learn to appreciate stuff

Anyone has the solution for "Firmware Error String" for the iPhone 3G using QuickPwn?

January 11, 2009 at 2:09 PM

I have a brand new IPhone 3g with firmware 2.2 already on it. How do I go about jailbreaking it? If anyone knows an answer please email me at MissingPhoenix5@aol.com or on here.

January 12, 2009 at 2:27 AM

hey! I downloaded the firmware 2.2 for my itouch 2G but when i click the link for downloading the firmware 2.2 for my 1G itouch the window says Error 403 Forbidden.

Also with the QuickPwn, when i browse the 2.2 firmware that i downloaded for the 2g at the second step of the process for installing Cydia, it says " Firmware Error String"

Can anyone help me???
Please answer me to: motocross902@hotmail.com

January 15, 2009 at 6:50 AM

QuickPwn doesn't support iPod Touch 2G firmware version 2.2. It supports 1G though.

January 18, 2009 at 9:09 AM

How do you get it to work with Vista home, have everything loaded, but when i browse for my IPSW it can't locate. Please Help

January 20, 2009 at 11:42 AM

Every time i click on the link for th itouch 2.2 1st gen software the window wont take me there if someone could download that file and send it to me that would be awsome. stickman715@hotmail.com

January 25, 2009 at 6:06 AM

okay, i heard ipod 2g can not be jail broken as of yet. if you have a ipod 2g go here: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ and they will have updates. i also heard ipod 2g CAN be jail broke but i am having no luck finding it!

January 25, 2009 at 6:12 AM

masterJr, you're right iPod Touch 2G can't be jailbroken yet! Only iPhone Dev Team blog is the official place to check for it. There are many places claiming to have it but they are fakes.

January 25, 2009 at 9:31 AM

how can u downgrade

January 27, 2009 at 7:47 AM

I know. I need it too, but it says that there is an error.

January 27, 2009 at 9:21 AM

i just updated today to 2.2.1 didnt think it would matter i have quick pwn 22-1 i get up to the 2nd part where it checks for firmware and i get firmware eror string i need help

January 27, 2009 at 9:40 AM

It matters, QuickPWN does not support the new 2.2.1 firmware yet. The iPhone Dev Team is working on a jailbreak for it and I'll post it up here once it's released.

January 27, 2009 at 5:34 PM

is there a sure way to downgrade from the 2.2.1 firmware back to 2.2 as I am completely without a phone now lol.

January 27, 2009 at 11:58 PM

I have the 2.2.1 update now, and none of my apps work, i lost sbsettings. Once I quickpwn it again (when it is available) will it all work again? or will I have to re-install everything?? Change settings again, etc...

January 28, 2009 at 12:05 AM

Once the iPhone Dev Team releases the new jailbreak software you will need to reinstall your jailbroken apps.

January 28, 2009 at 12:58 PM

ok.. I was able to update the 1G to the 2.2 FW... is there a way to jailbreak it ? or we cannot jailbreak the V2.2?

January 28, 2009 at 2:19 PM

Yea just happened to me today as well. Well My jailbreak was going great until "kate" took over and I could not place calls, the application just keep crashing. I tryed everything from ssh to restarting. SO... I restored the phone and then restored back to what I had on 2.2. I missing applications, but noticed that my firmware had changed.


January 28, 2009 at 11:32 PM

where is the 2.2 firmware for 1st gen itouch? the link is for 2.2.1.

January 29, 2009 at 4:43 PM

Hey.. I didnt know and i upgraded, now my iphone is lockedd.. i dont know what to do!!!

January 29, 2009 at 6:26 PM

This does not seem to work for the 3G 2.2.1 firmware. If you already have the iPhone 3G with 2.2.1 firmware, you will most likely not be able to downgrade it to any of the previous firmwares...
If someone has the 2.2.1 on their 3G and was successful in downgrading to 2.2 or any other version of firmware, please let us know by posting on this page!!!

January 30, 2009 at 4:58 AM

thanks my ipod touch 2.2 2en is jailbroken

February 18, 2009 at 4:35 AM

It means you didn't download the correct firmware or you are using iPod Touch 2G firmware which is unsupported.

February 18, 2009 at 4:43 AM

Hold down the square home button and the standby button until your iPod Touch turrns off. Then turn it back on by pressing the standby button.
