    Default NEED HELP ASAP! Phone 2g stuck w/ cartoon picture and weird caption bubble.
    My aunt gave me her iPhone so that I could jail-break/unlock it. I previously had an iPhone a while back and I did unlocking/jail-breaking and didn't have any problems.

    I don't know what proper firmware I should use. I tried getting the 3.0 using redsnow.

    What should I do. It's 120am here and I need to get the phone back to her at 10am. She's leaving the island to go back home to florida!

    use the original 3.0 firmware for 2g... it should me called iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore

    on itunes restore with original firmware going into dfu mode then use redsnow to jailbreak and unlock

    when does the error come up... when you put the phone on dfu mode?

    if the error comes up on dfu mode try it in just normal recovery mode

    I'm not sure what firmware you had in the first place when you were trying to jailbreak.
    Anyway, if you're stuck, the best advice I can give right now is throw that b*tch in DFU mode, restore to original in iTunes (3.0). Then hit it with the redsn0w again.

    Your Aunt may not have any contacts etc if she didn't carry her computer with her, but she can sync up when she gets back to Florida (better than being stuck with the Jobs logo)

    the screen is always stuck in the steve jobs cartoon thing.

    1. enter in dfu mode?
    2. shift + restore > 3.0 firmware?

    i get error 36 when itunes tries to restore it. i'll try again.

    she doesn't care about contacts and what not. just needs it updated jail-broken/unlocked.

    try a firmware like 2.2.1 or 2.1 dont try anything lower but that also might not work you might need to install a lower version of itunes

    ok i guess itunes wont work... just installing itunes then reinstalling it ( the latest one... i know a few people had a similar issue and it took a while to fix it.. and figure it out!... so yea try that... and then try and install the firmware again... if not try installing 2.2.1 firmware first
    the upgrade it to 3.0 original firmware then jailbreak...
