    Default My 1.1.4 Unlocked / JB iPhone Needs Restore
    Bear with me guys and gals, I'm pretty new to all this and bought this unlocked and jailbroken iphone on ebay a while again. It's 1.1.4 and my SP is T-Mobile. I was watching a vidoe today while getting ready to leave the Hospital (wife just had a new baby girl...YEAH!) and my iPhone shut down. Every time I try to boot it up (turn it on) I get the icon that asks me to connect iTunes. I connect and it tells me I must restore it. No other options?? I'm using iTunes 7.2.6.9.

    I figure if I have to restore I may as well upgrade to 2.0.2. I'm using Windows Vista. Will I loose everything when I restore?

    I tried searched the guides but I didn't see anything that mentioned what hapens when I restore.

    Sorry for the newbie questions...thanks for any and all help!

    I restored it...it only let's me get to Emergency Calls now. I guess I'll research how to go from here. It's 1.1.4 locked now I assume. Use QuickOwnRC3 now?

    Use quickpwn for mac or pc. This will jailbreak your iphone and activate it. blog.iphone-dev.org

    Ok, I'm confused. I want to upgrade to 2.0.2 but I have 1.1.4 firmware. Since I'm T-Mobile, do I need to unlock it first before using Quickpwn? The QuickpwnRC3 says only for 2.x versions of firmware. Since my iPhone is wiped clean and restored can I just dl the newer firmware from this site and use that?

    Sorry, total newbie...thanks for any help!

    Ok, I used Ziphone to activate and jailbreak, but I still can't unlock it. It's still 1.1.4. How do I upgrade it to 2.0.2 so I can unlock it with Winpwn? I DL the firmware...how do I get it on my phone? Do I use itunes? I'm currently using iTunes 7.6...

    Ok I followed to guide and everything seemed to work fine. Restored with custom firmware and upgraded iTunes to latest version. (Yes I'm windows user).

    Now what? I'm a T-Mobile user and my sim card won't work. Can't do anything yet...

    How do I unlock now? I guess I thought that's what I was doing with WinPwn 2.0?

    I appreciate the help and will gladly thank you if I can get past this hurdle.

    You can check out these links

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.0.x 2G iPhone (Windows) [WinPwn 2.5]

    Winpwn 2.5 Guide - iPhone News & Review

    Both talk about the jb/unlock. I am relatively new to this also but found these sites informative. I also used ziphone to jb/unlock 1.1.4 and it worked except for the youtube which required an additional fix.

    Congrats on the baby girl!
