Thread: Jailbreak iPhone 2G massive problem! help please!

    Default Jailbreak iPhone 2G massive problem! help please!
    Hi I am really hoping someone can help me with this as ive been searching for answers for ages.

    Ive got an iPhone 2G running 1.4 firmware, I have had the phone for 2 years now and recently I have forgotten the passcode I set on it. After 10 failed attempts I have locked the phone, so the screen reads 'connect to itunes to restore' now i cant do this as i purchased the phone on ebay jailbroken, so i dont want to register the phone with apple.

    I have downloaded the 1.1.4.ipsw file and thought i could restore using that but an error always occurs...

    I understand jailbreaking will be easy enough, but how can i get around this problem where i need to set the factory settings on the phone without registering with apple...

    any help much appreciated!

    thanking you all so much!

    ps please help me! hehe

    Just restore it and then re-jailbreak it. No worries about Apple. I would suggest you move up to at least 3.0 firmware, you'd love all the new features.

    No, there are thousands of us that use the iPhone on other carriers.
    Update your iTunes to at least version 8.2 and then go here for everything you need including complete step by step instructions, links to files needed pics and more.

    Put your sim card in, then run redsn0w to jailbreak it.
