Jailbreaking an iphone 2G


Recommended Posts

I just bought a iphone 4 :jig: This thing rocks! My daughter wants to use my old 2G iphone. She doesn't have a data plan on her line and I'm not going to add it. I read that the iphone could work with the data turned off as just a phone and text. I tried jailbreaking it and unlocking it but still when I put her sim card in it it doesn't do anything but tell me to plug it into itunes. From what I read unlocking it should work but it just ain't working.

Anyone do this or know of a web page that explains it so that someone that doesn't know crap about it can do it? I've been trying all day and no luck.

everytime i try even readign how to jailbreak my phone i go crosseyed and feel dumber... why i havent tried it yet

I agree, I'm feeling extremely dumb right now. I feel like a janitor trying to do brain surgery! :crossedwires:


Morningwould, I cant view the link you gave without being a member. So far I jail broke it with jailbreakme.com then I tried to install ultrsn0w to unlock it. When it finishes the install there is a button that says reload the springboard. I press it and the phone restarts but is not unlocked. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm running firmware 3.1.3




I got it. It kept telling me I needed to download a ipsw file to restore the firmeware. When I downloaded that file it came down with a zip extension. I finally figured out that I needed to change the extension from zip to ipsw. Then everything worked like the tutorial said. The just forgot to add in the part about changing the file extension. Anyway Daughter is ecstatic and off my but about the phone.
