    Hi, I followed these steps and it worked apart 4rm the fact I get No Service. I have been searching and trying loads of methods but nothing seems to work. I'm trying to use my Orange contract on it but why don't it work? iTunes recognises the number as it does on the phone and recognises the carrier (02 at the moment) but I still get No Service. Can you help please?

    I was getting the "Unknown error (6)" message while trying to restore,
    I found out that it was simply becasue I needed to restart my PC after updating Itunes

    Everything worked fine after that ;-)

    i downloaded the 2.0.1 firmware. pwnage didnt recognize the ipsw and told me that i had selected the wrong ipsw bundle.

    now quickpwn doesn't recognize when i plug in my itouch.

    probably stupid mistake,

    please help,

    Almost everything worked

    After doing everything you said I restored my phone to my old back up so I could have my contacts, photos etc.

    And then my phone restarted on itself and is stuck on the apple logo
    It's frozen on the boot-up image with the loading circle graphic

    Any suggestions on what I could do? Should I try the whole thing again? Damn, it takes so long lol

    Thank you for the post, I have a small question, I am on 2.1, do I have to go back to 2.01 for this method to work?

    I hope I can help people with that one here:

    I got sometimes several Error Messages, but I solved it that way:

    - upgrade official on iTunes to the newest version
    - use QuickPwn
    an afterwards upgrade with a custom firmware you did with Pwnage Tool
    and you won't get any error messages, everything is working fine!

    If questions, feel free to contact me!
    Good luck!

    I'm writing to you after getting stuck a hundred times with the (6) and (1600) errors. Finally I found this link in which you guys helped me get over the errors issue.
    After the process completes smoothly, I still cannot get a network. The iPhone is jailbroken. But how do I know if it is Unlocked. I tried with 2-3 different working SIMs, but to no avail.

    Which programm did you use for the jailbreak/unlock?
    What's working at the moment and what not?

    ...anyone knows why my QuickPwn crashes every time i plug my iphone in?? It gives me a message to reset my iPhone so i do that and then it crashes saying: Quickpwn has encountered a problem and needs to close!! Plz help

    Hello! I'm having an awful time trying to unlock my iPhone 2G. In fact I'm hopeless!
    I followed the procedure explained at the first post, problem is my phone would never turn white!
    I used QuickpwnGUI, firmware 2.01. I tried to install the custom firmware through iTunes anyway, but I received different error messages during my different attemps (21 ,1600, 1601).

    I then tried to do a restore with the original firmware through iTunes. Everything was fine, except that my iPhone is obviously locked. Anyway I tried to put the phone in DFU and then do a restore choosing my custom firmware, but I got the same annoying 1600 error. I don't know what to do!

    Any help would be sooooo appreciated, this is my only phone!

    never mind, I fixed it. If it may help, my problem was that the screen never turned white when using quickpwn. And if I tried to restore it through iTunes, I kept getting the 1600 error.
    What I did is I unplugged the usb cable and plugged it again. The screen immediately turned white and stayed white, I tried to restore my custom firmware through iTunes and it FINALLY worked

    This worked perfectly. A friend of mine screwed up his phone and had no clue what he did. I found this post and it worked first time out. You've been thanked.
