Thread: need help - my very complicated unlock situation

    Default need help - my very complicated unlock situation
    I have a 2G/old iphone, the original fw was 1.1.1.
    I activated the iPhone with iTunes as a good ATT customer.
    I didn't do anything for a long while.
    Then I got to know the Pwnage tool. I downloaded Panage Tool 2.0 and ran it on Mac. As stupid as I was, I didn't do it right, so the iPhone was upgraded through iTunes to fw 2.0 - no Cydia.
    Then I tried several times, the Pwnage tool just doesn't work on my MacBook.
    Then the QuickPwn (for windows) appeared and I downloaded and ran it on my PC.
    This time it worked, both Cydia and Installer showed up.
    But the SIM card is being locked - I used my friend's ATT SIM card, but only the emergency call page showed up. That means the iPhone is still not unlocked, right?
    What can I do now?
    Any input will be appreciated!

    I travel to Asia frequently. I want to use my iPhone...
    now whenever I am in Asia, I can only use it as an iTouch.

    Use QuickPwn to get it jailbroken on 2.0.1 firmware, then use WinPwn and create a custom firmware and restore it to that. Here is a link to the guide for unlocking and activating your 2.0.1 firmware using WinPwn after QuickPwn :

    If you have updated to 2.0.2 then it cannot be unlocked as of now. You need to downgrade to 2.0.0 and then restore with custom firmware or PWNed Firmware. Now your phone will be unlocked. Now you can shift+update to 2.0.1. and it will still remain unlocked.
