2.0 iPhones Upgraded to 2.0

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.
