iPhone 2.2.1 and iPod Touch 2.2.1 Firmware released!

Written By Unknown on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 | 5:37 AM


Today Apple has released updates for iPhone firmware 2.2.1, iPhone 3G firmware 2.2.1, iPod Touch firmware 2.2.1, and iPod touch 2G firmware 2.2.1.  Here are details of what this new firmware includes:
iPhone 2.2.1 Software Update

This update contains bug fixes and improvements, including the following:
- Improved general stability of Safari
- Fixed issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll

Products compatible with this software update:
- iPhone
- iPhone 3G

It is strongly recommended NOT to upgrade to this new firmware yet because the iPhone Dev Team is investigating the firmware and checking whether or not the firmware can be jailbroken.  As of right now it is not possible to jailbreak iPhone 2.2.1, jailbreak iPhone 3G 2.2.1, or jailbreak iPod Touch 2.2.1 .  If you want to try this firmware on a non-jailbroken iPhone here are the download links:

Firmware 2.2.1 Download Links

Download iPhone 2.2.1 firmware

Download iPhone 3G 2.2.1 firmware

the download "Download ipod Touch 2.2.1 firmware" is the ipod touch 2G no ipod touch 1G.

Para los que entienden español... el firmware tanto del 2G como del 1G según los link son los mismos es un error el firmware del ipod touch 1G pesa 254.089 y el de 2G pesa 270 aproximadamente CORRIGAN EL ERROR

nos vemos!!!!! DEV TEAM THE BEST!!!!!

January 27, 2009 at 6:27 AM

Oh Jeez-
I finally started the 2.2 upgrade today - and didn't realize about 2.2.1
So now I have a restored iPhone w/ 2.2.1 and am syncing basic music and apps.
Guess I will wait to re-jailbreak and restore from the backup...

January 27, 2009 at 6:35 AM

so what does it do for the iPod Touch??

January 27, 2009 at 7:23 AM

I just fixed the link. Thanks!

January 27, 2009 at 8:14 AM

I had a question if there was a way to get the apps to install in iphone through itunes without jail breaking iphone/itouch just like we buy the app and install it??
PLzzz take this into consideration cause most of us just need to install the app that we download from p2p/torrent sites or from friends.
Is there a way you think without jail breaking the iphone? And so on we can update firmware and everything without the hassle to restore. I think many of us will like that and almost every iphone-torrent user will use it. I would be happy to donate too.
It would be a major breakthrough for your softwares. And guess what someone will copy you and you will be on the top once more.

Hey Jeff, you can try using pusher from www.ripdev.com Pusher will put a program on your computer that will put only installer on your ipod touch/iphone. Then just install open ssh from installer and try sshing the 2.2 mobileinstallation patch into System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileInstallation.framework
replace the mobileinstallation file. I'm not sure if pusher will work with 2.2.1 but its worth a shot. You won't have to jailbreak either.

I forgot to mention plzz update or email if you you guys are interested in the idea cause I will wait for that. it would be the best thing probably that would happen to iphone since every user would use it.

January 27, 2009 at 9:47 AM

Hi Nick,

I have already checked - pusher doesn't wok wirh 2.2.1. First it checks the version of the firmware and then it displays a message that the firmware version cannot be verified.

January 27, 2009 at 10:13 AM

January 27, 2009 at 12:29 PM

January 27, 2009 at 12:40 PM

The jailbreak for firmware 2.2.1 hasn't been released yet so it won't work.

You can either downgrade back to firmware 2.2 or wait for the iPhone Dev Team to release the jailbreak.

January 27, 2009 at 1:20 PM

How long does it usually take for the iphone Dev team to release the jailbreak for 2,2.1 cause i didnt know about this till my friend told me like 10 min ago but i already had upgraded T_T

January 27, 2009 at 6:46 PM

he means by holding Shift + clicking on restore in itunes and then it'll give you the option to select the restore point to 2.2 but i recommend moving the 2.2 file to somewhere easier to find like your desktop lol, it took me a while to figure but atempting a restore now and hopefully back to normal..... fingers crossed and wish me luck if not please quickpwn get a new version ;)

January 28, 2009 at 6:22 AM

how do you downgrade?!?!

January 28, 2009 at 6:48 AM

I goofed too. Didn't research before upgrading....
Any word on how much longer? LOL
Keep up the excellent work.

January 28, 2009 at 7:04 AM

well go into itunes hold shift + press restore, select 2.2 restore point and it should restore back to that point.

although after accidentally upgrading, evertime i have tried to restore to a previous point it's given me an error. so i'm forced to restore to 2.2.1 the newest version.... so unfortunately i have to wait for the amazing dev team to upgrade their quickpwn to save me ;)

January 28, 2009 at 7:08 AM

if you're downgrading hold shift + press restore. select your restore point obviously 2.2 but everytime i try i seem to get 70% of the way to restoring to 2.2 and then i get an error lol, should work for everyone else, i reckon apple should let every network use the iphone lol if it's that popular and make a mint of profits
