Ok, I got both iPhones upgraded to the 2.0 version of the iPhone OS.
Initially, I had some trepidation about upgrading a day early … and my feeling seemed to be valid when a co-worker tried to upgrade his phone and had a bunch of problems. He kept getting an “Unknown error (6)” message. I don’t know if he actually got his upgraded.
Regardless, I decided to throw caution to the wind and upgrade my phone anyways. Luckily, it worked without a single hitch.
When I got home from work, I proceeded to upgrade Ginny’s phone. This, of course, is where I ran into problems.
I started the upgrade process by first upgrading her iTunes to 7.7. That worked without any problems. Then I proceeded to upgrade her phone.
Initially it was going OK … then I got an “Unknown error (10)” message. Figuring that I would just restore the phone to it’s previous OS version, I tried the restore option … but when I did this I got an “Unknow error (20)” message. Tried a few more times and got the same message. This is not good.
I Googled around a bit and found a thread in the Apple support forum that said that, if I pressed Option (shift in Windows context) and clicked the restore button, I could ‘Recover’ to the 2.0 firmware. Luckily this worked.
About 20 minutes later I had Ginny’s iPhone working fine.
Five minutes after that, I we were both playing with the “Phone Saber” application.
