All the 2g phones ive unlocked, I used custom firmware that I downloaded, and as soon as the restore was done, they were jailbroken and unlocked. Shouldnt need to even run blacksn0w. And if your baseband is below 5.11.07, you would use ultrasn0w to unlock. I dont believe ive ever used blacksn0w on a 2g, but its been a while since ive had to unlock one.
so i was able to downgrade my os to 3.1.2 and re-jailbroke it (after bricking it twice using blackra1n) with redsn0w. then i noticed that my iPhone 2G has firmware 04.05.04_G while the blacksnow RC2 final requires 05.17.09.
what am i missing?
Mavrik, I tried that blackra1n/sn0w mod on top of my redsn0w jb/ul and bricked my phone...twice. the good news is that the ATT goPhone sim card started working after I re-jailbroke it. at this point, i'd consider another jailbreak (blacksnow, pwnage, etc.) if i could get my BT settings AND my prepaid sims to both work at the same time....but i am good for now because i have presentation on 5/1 and i am using the keynote remote app. don't want to chance a PERMANENT brick before then.
Sucks that Apple is going to d/c the original iPhone support, but I guess all good things come to an end. It's a shame, though, because there are a lot of them out there still in good condition, except for the battery. (I think the only way I would even CONSIDER getting an iPhone 4G/G4 is with a removable battery)
