Update!

They've just released this photo on their blog:

I pretty sure this indicates DFU (device firmware update) mode which is the mode you can currently use on 2.5G iPhones to downgrade to any firmware, still have no idea what they're on about though..

Over at the iPhone Dev Team blog, the are releasing very cryptic messages over the last couple of days that seem to indicate they are getting ready for the launch of an unlocking tool very soon!  It may be even released on the day of the iPhone 3G launch

DO NOT UPGRADE TO THE 2.0 FIRMWARE!!!

I was foolish enough to upgrade to the latest 2.0 firmware last night and it totally locks your device.  iTunes took a long time to put the new firmware on my iPhone as the firmware file was over 200MB!

I have just spent the last 5 hours getting my firmware back to 1.1.4.

If you install the 2.0 firmware it will lock your device and tell you to connect to iTunes where it says it must be activated on a plan.

If you have done the same and can't get your iPhone back to 1.1.4, I'll be posting a tutorial in the tutorials section soon
