    The thing is I use the iphone for basic ****. Safari, Mail, SMS, and mostly Facebook! Also I use mostly the app store to get apps. Im not into the SSH and everything.

    Another question(s) is this. I uploaded from 2.2.1 to 2.2 a whillllle back. But when I did the process, it got rid of my jailbreak but not the unlock..? My iphone was a little slower with the jailbreak and after I got 2.2 i reallt didnt want the jailbreak again.
    So guys, a little help for the semi-noob. hehe
    Hey, that's more than 1 question.
    What kind of phone2g/3g

    as far as what's in Cydia there are a ton, look around.
    Hard to believe you upgraded but didn't lose the unlock.
    Jailbreak should not slow the phone it is the processes.

    okay so I thought I had 3.0 working great, using redsnOw to unlock my phone... but come to find out my phone was no longer receiving calls. It would alert me to voice mail messages but would not ring.... I have tried restoring to 2.2.1 but iTunes never successfully restores, I always get "error 20"...

    Any ideas???

    Yup, but your not gonna like it.
    Your going to have to start all over, sounds like a file got screwed up.
    Put phone in DFU mode, restore to a fresh copy of 3.0 and begin the process again. Sorry

    It does not recover from this condition even after 15mins - strange - only way to get it back is to switch the phone off after which i get the activate emergency screen. Prior to this the phone was unlocked and jailbroken using QPwn 2.2

    Any help is appreciated.



    sry for quoting myself here, but i just wanted to show u the problem i had...

    anyways, i used another computer and it worked perfectly... dunno why, just try another pc with a fresh install of itunes 8.2... might work for u 2 hopefully...

    took your advise... i was first using vista to try to unlock/jailbreak 2g... many many tries.. it didn't work.. went to my other computer which is XP, download everything (iTunes 8.2, redsn0w, etc)

    restore with itunes, then ran redsn0w. work fine now.

    It shouldn't take to long, you may have to start over fresh.

    I just watched the vid, and yup he's doing it correctly, obviously it worked for him.
    Not sure what you missing. The most important thing is to have a fresh 3.0. If you fail, you have to DFU /re-install 3.0 form iTunes and begin the process.

    Before I do anything, does the iphone have to be in 3.0? or can it be 2.2 and still do jailbreak/unlock?

    So I put redid everything... I went back into DFU mode, used redsnOw, and every thing appeared to load fine. I even redownloaded all of the files just to be sure everything was okay with the files, but still I cannot receive calls, they go straight to voicemail. I can make calls... I would love to just go back 2.2.1 but when I try to restore iTunes gives me an error. I even uninstalled iTunes 8.2 just in case that was the problem with the "downgrade" but iTunes won't do anything with a3.0 phone if you don't have 8.2.

    How can I get my iPhone working again???

    ok I admit that I am feeling seriously rediculous right now. I downloaded the iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw.zip and there is no ipsw file in it.

    Inside the unzipped folder is the following:

    .fsecentsd (folder)
    Firmware (folder)
    3 dmg files and 2 plist files

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    im pretty sure smothered that you change the file extension to ipsw by removing the .zip and putting ipsw. Either that or dl using a different browser. That should do it.
