    Default iPhone is Locked (Please Help!)
    Hey there,

    So I'm new to the iPhones. Here's my iPhone's Story:

    My baby cousin was playing with my iPhone on the PIN screen, and guessed it wrong to many times. My iPhone is jailbroken, and I'm using an unofficial SIM Card. I got a new phone (Galaxy S Vibrant), which I got into a fight while having it on me, and the Digitizer and LCD Screen broke. When I got this phone I didn't care for my iPhone 2G, and put it away. Now I need a new phone.

    Picture:
    Problem(Lock Icon is at top, and can't slide to unlock):


    This is the name of the iOS (I think thats whats it's called, uber newb still :P) that I downgraded to:
    iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore

    My iPhone is a:
    2G

    I used redsn0w version 0.9.2 to do this jailbreak.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more information, just let me know.

    HAPPY EASTER!

    No, it doesn't. That is the only thing that I see that is abnormal. It doesn't allow me to slide the unlock button to access the phone. Thanks for the fast reply!

    No problem. Ok it might not be the lovkscreen itself but the digitizer. You can try a restore if you'd like.

    Are you suggesting the digitizer is broken? When I hold the power off button, and get to slide to turn off, I can slide and turn it off. Did you mean LCD Screen? Nothings wrong with that either.

    I should have included this in the post. I tried to be as descriptive as possible.

    Again, thanks for your speedy reply .

    No it is sometimes possible for only part of the digitizer to be non functional. You can try a restore to see if that is the problem only of you'd like.

    How do I restore it? I re-jailbroke it AFTER I restored it to the newest iPhone OS with iTunes.

    Maybe I could wipe the phone 100%, update it, then try again? How would I go about wiping the entire phone?

    Press the home button and power button for 10 seconds. After the 10 seconds let go of the power button. iTunes should detect a phone in recovery mode. Then click restore

    If your sure it's 3.1.2, it does not require shsh blobs to restore 3.1.2 again. Was the bottom of the digitizer faulty the last time you used it?
