This thread is irrelevant for that issue, please post in correct thread, READ the first post THIS DOES NOT UNLOCK 3G.

This might sound like a noon question but musclenerd said if you have a useless 3g with an official sim then use red snow to at least JB. Does this mean I need an AT&T sim card ?? Or I can JB without the sim ??

Successful unlock of 2G iPhone

Hey guys, I don't have a specific answer to any questions, just thought I would post how I got my iPhone 2G jailbroken and unlocked. I did this on the Windows 7 RC1.
First, I updated Itunes to 8.2. Then I got the 3.0 firmware directly from Itunes (it gives you two options, download or download and install. I just clicked download).
I located the firmware on my HD, (C: > Users > Username > AppData > Roaming > Apple > Itunes > Iphone Update Software)
I made sure my AT&T sim was put back in my iPhone (It was already unlocked and had a T-Mobile sim inside). I did this just for the restore.
I shift-clicked on restore in Itunes and selected the firmware. My iPhone went into restore mode (screen had itunes logo and plug) I got an error message 1602 after a long hang. I solved this problem by just changing the USB port I was using. Restore went fine afterwards.
Then I put my T-Mobile sim card back in my iPhone.
Then I got Redsn0w and followed the directions. The jailbreak and unlock went smoothly.
Cydia is really buggy (crashed about 10 times in 5 minutes), but I was able to use it long enough to add the ripdev source and install Icy.
I hope this helps someone.

Many people are having similar issues, and is causing many threads to be opened, I myself am having the issues aswell, and would like some help please.
Issue (This may be added to the main page)
redsn0w 0.7.1, iPhone 2G (may also be for 3g) hangs on a black empty screen when the jailbreak is running (after the ipod had been put in dfu mode)
it either displays "waiting for reboot" Or "Done!", but the iphone remaines on the black empty screen.
Thanks in advance.

Acually, as always, I'm going to wait a week or so and enjoy my functioning-perfectly, heavily-modded (and thus indispensible) 2.2 2g phone.
