    connect it to itunes, update it to the newest firmware 3.1.2, then run blackra1n on it which should jailbreak it. after that, go to cydia and add repo666.ultrasn0w.com to the sources, then install ultrasn0w which should do the unlock (I think ultrasn0w works on the 2G ... if not you will have to use BootNeuter)

    alternatively you can use pwnagetool (mac only) to create a custom 3.1 firmware

    alternatively you can update to 3.0 or 3.0.1 and run redsn0w on the device

    first, what firmware are you on? why cant you see it? ummm
    you dont need a SIM once you jailbreak and unlock. you`ll be able to use any.

    well, you have to hacktivate it then. In that case, the blackra1n method will not work. you will have to use either PwnageTool (preferrable but only possible if you have a mac) or redsn0w. In PwnageTool you have a checkbox if you want to activate the phone, which you have to check (or, if you use pwnagetool in simple mode, it will simply ask you if you have an original simcard).
    redsn0w will automatically activate your phone if you run it

    use the tutorial i send you. you just need a couple of files and that pwnage tool and thats it. make sure you follow it step by step.

    can you let us know exactly what you`r doing? the steps you taking. cuz there is no way that device is not let in you flash to a fresh restore in DFU mode. no way.

    lol yes blackra1n is not an unlock but a jailbreak. ok now you have a iPhone 3.1.2. ok that is now a start. now downgrade to 3.0 then quikpwn.

    just download the 3.0 firmware for the 2G (available here at MMi download section), then shift+click (win) or alt +click (mac) on the restore button of your phone in itunes and select the downloaded firmware.
    if your itunes only shows "the sim card in this iphone isn't valid" or something, you have to go to dfu mode. for that:
    1) connect the phone to itunes and make sure it's turned on
    2) make sure itunes is running
    3) hold power (on top of the device) and home (under the screen) together for 10 seconds, after 10 seconds release the power button but keep holding the home button until itunes says it has detected an iphone in recovery mode. the restore button will now be there

    0.7.x is outdated btw, but as long as it worked it shouldn't matter. but next time you should get the newest version right from the dev team's blog: Dev-Team Blog

    as for updating, you have to wait for a new version of redsn0w ...
