I bought a unlocked phone from ebay.
It works with my t-mobile sim, and has installer and summerboard on.
Now when i try to install any of the apps on the installer i get error message during install script execution.
My friend suggested its locked for read/writing files, and use independence to jail break it, i downloaded and ran it.
Says phone is activated but not jailbreak'ed.
So i ran jailbreak and its asks me where the firmware files for 1.02 are.
this is were i am panicking and stopped..
am i write that this error is because its locked to read and write files, do i need to jailbreak it and will it brick my phone, ie no t-mobile
please help

you need to download the v1.02 firmware and change the file format to .zip and unzip the files into a folder, then point the jailbreak to them files ;)

The only way you could really "brick" your phone is though messing around with the baseband or firmware (aka removing or changing parts lol)
