    Default iphone 2.2.1 camera doesn't work, want to upgrade to 3.0. help.
    Apologies in advance for my not knowing what the hell I'm doing.

    I just bought a 2g iphone that came unlocked and jailbroke running 2.2.1. After I got home I discovered the camera wasn't working and the guy said you have to use a different app. It will take a picture, but the pic shows up as just a blank screen. So I read somewhere that I should try restoring the iphone. If I restore, it do I have to unlock it again?

    And if I want to upgrade to 3.0, I know I'll need to jailbreak it again, but will I need to unlock it?

    with the 2g you will not have to re-unlock it. just restore and jailbreak it. however, issues with the camera seem like a hardware problem... but you never know. Give it a shot

    I got it to work. It seems that this was a common problem with the iphone 2g. Camera would seem like it was taking pics but then it would show up as a black box in the camera roll.

    I fixed it!

    It took a since yesterday, lol. I tried a bunch of different stuff. What ended up working was to restore/jailbreak/unlock again using pwnage tool and setting it up as a new iphone. Since it was a new-to-me iphone I didn't have any data to lose. Then I synced again with itunes to get all my music and photos and apps and the camera freakin' works!

    Now if t-mobile would just get my data plan that I requested a few hours ago activated, I'm good to go. woo hoo!
