      it's funny to me that the first post says will not unlock 3g for use with other carriers and people still ask it it will unlock 3g. Can these people not read and comprehend words? LOL

      Thanks dev team!!!!!

      Thanks a milliion for the step by step!!! This was the 1st time I've EVER used pwnage tool & everything worked out great.

      One question I do have. Can the boot logo be changed to the pineapple? I used the modmyi one & while it looks cool I prefer the standard pineapple one.

      Hey,

      I have the 4gb original iPhone. I had it previously unlocked with Ziphone. Last night I used the new Pwnage tool to unlock and use the new 2.0 software. It works perfectly. I also used the hack on Cydia by Bigboss again so I can still use the $5.00 T-zones internet. Thanks Dev Team!

      No you dont just follow the guides

      thanks
      just update itunes first
      then you CAN update your phone IF you want like normal just hit update. you dont have to do all that other stuff to just update THEN use pwnage tool and it should work fine

      Yes just recreate the custom fw and instead of changing the logo just use the one that is checked already (the pineapple)

      I'm having trouble getting service after jailbreaking my 2g iPhone. I've waited for quite awhile as well as rebooted the phone a few times. Maybe i'm just being impatient?

      When I'm running the Pwnage tool, in expert mode, it never asks me for the bootloader files, and then I get a variety of error messages trying to restore from the newly created ispw files. ????

      damn.. wish there was an easier way than having to go through all that again. Ah well.. I'll stick w/ the modmyi one. Thanks.

      I need help. Before Restore and using MIM to change my Carrier name to ATT to make the custom TMOBILE icon work. Now that I restored after updating to 2.0 my carrier is stuck on ATT... I don't have ATT.

      Any solution?

      hi
      im having dis problem thats been troubling me since the past 6 hours now.

      i get through all d steps. and after the restore of the custom firmware. wen the device boots up (and apple says to give it 15 seconds) my fone gets stuck on the pineapple logo and keeps rebooting. (the pineapple comes up for a few secs the fone switches off again starts and the same cycle keeps repeating) it never starts or reaches the spring board or the boot neuter.

      iv done and redone the steps bout 10 times now. but with the same results. iv restored the phone back to 1.1.4 and tried again a few times too. iv also tried rebuilding the firmware a couple of times. dfu etc everything works fine. no error messages. but the same problem everytime. and now im back on 1.1.4 waiting for help.

      cn someone please help me out. im using a mac with lepord. iv also tried on diff macs and also the pc.

      Delete Pwnage tool from your computer and reinstall it. Now when you run it, it should ask for your bootloader files. Worked for me.

      Thanks for the instructions, but when I just "jailbraked" my 1st Gen iPhone, several of the steps listed above were missing.

      I was able to sort through it, so thanks again!

      I get that too in simple mode. I have not tried expert yet. Is this a glitch or am I just not doing something right?

      Mine never asks for bootloaders 39 and 46 and goes straight to building the ipsw. Is that a problem?

      *edit* sorry just found the answer a few posts up!
