    Thankyou for the post above. Ironically I eventually worked it out last night, after several hours of attempts. I didn't check here for a reply as I'd had no emails to say a reply had been made!

    Being that there seems to be so many people on this thread with exactly the same problem, and it seems all over the net with the issue, I'm wondering why the op hasn't been updated?

    But anyway, thanks to the original poster for the walk thru, and to the post above from Melech518.

    Right, didn't spot that, thanks for the heads up. Done.

    :-)

    Hi again, one small (hopefully) problem appeared today. No data service. Calls & texts are fine. Wifi internet/email is fine, but no email/internet when using my data service, that is, no edge.

    Anyone any ideas how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    Check your APN in network setting - sounds like you need to change it.

    You need to hacktivate the phone. Restore your phone to 3.0.1 and jailbreak using redsn0w and the 3.0 ipsw, or check the version of PWNage tool you are using. Make sure it is the most current build.
    Hi:
    I appreciate the replies.

    I am downloading a newer version of pwnage 3.1.3. Before I try it, I have some questions.
    -Which is better, Restore and use Redsn0w or use Pwnage? ( I saw a caution on one Pwnage guide saying for the 3G phone you only get one chance - does that apply to 2G as well?
    -For the Redsn0w route, since the iphone (2g) is not activated, how can I restore to 3.0.1 ? I cannot do anything in itunes without it activated. I tried the instructions for checking phone version by dialing *3001#12345#* and pressing call but nothing happens.
    -Is it OK to use pwnage without knowing your phone version or being able to back up anything in itunes?

    Please let me know. Thank you for your help.

    RedSn0w only works up to 3.01 (which you can download and restore using shift (Win) or Option key (Mac) but Pwnage 3.14 (not 3.13)works with FW 3.12.
    If you have a Mac use Pwnage 3.14

    Redsn0w can only be used on 3.0 and 3.0.1 firmwares. If you wish to upgrade to the latest 3.1.2 firmware you will need to create a custom firmware with PWnage. The rumors you have heard are false FYI
    -For the Redsn0w route, since the iphone (2g) is not activated, how can I restore to 3.0.1 ? I cannot do anything in itunes without it activated. I tried the instructions for checking phone version by dialing *3001#12345#* and pressing call but nothing happens.Put the phone into DFU mode by powering the phone off while plugged into the computer, then press and hold the home and power buttons for 10 seconds. Release the power button and continue to hold the home button until the phone is recognized by itunes in recovery mode. Then you can restore.
    -Is it OK to use pwnage without knowing your phone version or being able to back up anything in itunes?
    Not sure I understand the question but yes you can use PWNage

    Hi everyone:
    Thank you for the replies. I believe I am getting closer. I have downloaded the latest Pwnage tool 3.1.4 and built the ipsw however Itunes gave me error 1604? The Iphone is an original 2G and I have Itunes 9.0.
    Is there a different ipsw I should be using for the 2G? (iphone1,1_3.1.27d11) Note, I did the restore again in Itunes back to what ever it normally downloads but I still cannot go back and verify the firmware version since the #3001 etc instructions do not work on my phone and the phone has not been activated. Please advise. Thanks you

    1604 means you are in DFU mode on a device that has been pwned before. Just do a normal restore, don't enter DFU mode.

    Hi:
    I did the restore but I am back at my original problem. The 2G phone is not activated and Itunes wants me to sign up for a 2 year ATT contract. Should I run pwnage again and select Yes for a phone that has been pwnaed before? Or is there something else I should be trying?
    Please advise.
    Thank you

    Hi Everyone:
    I just tried it again and it worked! I had to disable Itunes first. Then everything went through OK. I sincerely appreciate Apple Development team and the replies from Confucious and Melech518 - I did press the thank you on posts. Now all I have to do is learn how to use the iphone.

    Thanks again

    Glad you got there in the end, but the Dev Team are nothing to do with Apple!

    Have fun with your iPhone

    Not sure why he has a problem as the PPC incompatibility was fixed in Pwnage 3.01 and 3.14 has no such issues.

    well, i'm an idiot. the last time i attempted to do this was when 3.0 was first released and was incompatible. i didn't realize the issue was fixed and i could do this myself.

    ul/jb done...thanks given to those that were helpful

    if i have version 3.1.2, then i assume instead of using the 3.0 firmware, i'll just use 3.1.2. and the same method outlined above and things will work?
