iPhone upgraded to firmware 2.0.2

My iPhone remains unlocked after updating it with iTunes to firmware 2.0.2. Naturally, it was no longer jailbroken but i found a way to jailbreak it using a new tool called QuickPwn by the iPhone Dev Team. This is what i did:

  1. Updated my 2.0.1 iPhone to 2.0.2 using iTunes.
  2. Installed iTunes 7.7.1 and QuickPwn on a VMware virtual environment running Windows XP on my Mac Pro.
  3. Transferred firmware 2.0.1 image to the Windows XP VM.
  4. Followed the steps as detailed in a post on iClarified.com. The post describes jailbreaking firmware 2.0.1 but this is exactly what i had to do to jailbreak 2.0.2 iPhone.

One of the first few things i did after jailbreaking my iPhone was to get a customized theme. My current favorite is fabiano1987‘s iWood Realize theme:

The icons for the App Store and Cydia look out of place because this theme currently do not have icons for those apps yet.

The 2.0.2 firmware “update” offers absolutely no improvement when launching apps.
