Thread: Problem unlocking Iphone 2g.
02-21-2012, 10:27 PM #1Problem unlocking Iphone 2g.
I've gone through numerous generations of iphones, and recently a friend asked me if I could give him my 1st gen iphone. It's been collecting dust in my closet for quite a while so I decided to give it away. /end of backstory
So basically, I had it jailbroken but it wasn't unlocked and it was running the most recent 3.13, the most recent firmware for the 2g. I restored it with the current version of itunes, downloaded the latest redsn0w. The latest one doesn't support both 3.1.3 and 3.1.2, so I downloaded redsn0w 0.9.4.
It doesn't identify 3.1.3, but i figured out that you had to use the 3.1.2 firmware instead and that worked fine. The only problem being is that after I jailbroke it, the SIM was still invalid. I tried multiple times, and no luck unlocking it. I also tried sn0wbreeze which also didn't work.
After many failed attempts, trying everything from jailbreaking with no SIM inside the phone, to restoring through DFU mode and without, I have no idea why I can't unlock the phone.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
