Some bozo broke about fifty laws (by digging through Apple's XML code on their servers) and found the unreleased iPhone 2.0 system software. If you're industrious, you can download the update, then open iTunes, hold down option and select the downloaded file. (If the file downloads as a .zip, be sure to change to the letters ".zip" to ".ipsw" (ditch the quotation marks.)
Be sure to back your iPhone up and don't come crying to us if it screws up your iPhone. This is a do it at your own risk kinda thing. But if you can pull it off, you can be able have much of what the 3G iPhone has to offer 23 hours before anyone else.
