PwnageTool and QuickPwn for 2.1 Firmware

I just upgraded my first generation iPhone yesterday from firmware version from 1.1.4 to 2.1 using Pwnage Tool! Thanks to the iPhone-Dev Team!
My first attempt was not successful because I missed out something but I got it running after my 3rd try. I will be posting some instructions on how to use the Pwnage Tool in my next blog.

iPhone-Dev Team Rocks!

Hi all
My brother gave me his standard UK iphone 2g with 2.1 software and I want to use my vodafone PAYG simm in UK.
I have read TONS and am building up nerve to do the pwning process, but have a query:
When the phone is pwned people seem to find the new simm is not recognised - solution is deleting some internal files using iphone browser, that seems to be a PC only app. What do you need on a Mac?
