I bought on ebay an iPhone 3g with firmware 2.2 (not the last)


i looked for informations in this forum and i think i understood the way i have to follow to unjailbreak/unlock my iPhone.

1) i have to jailbraek it before with the QuickPawn 2.2
2) Then unlock it whit Yellowst0ne

My questions are:

A) do i need an AT&T sim card to start to jailbraek the iPhone and then unlock it? because i don't have it and i want to use a t-mobile sim on it?
B) can i upgrade to 2.2.1 after or it's better i don't do it? I in the future i will do it, what do i have to do?

sorry for my repetitive questions but i'm not american and i don't understand everythings on the forum and it's the first time i hold an iPhone

sorry i missed this thread earlier when scanning, i'm usually on these like white on rice.

anyways, you will have to download quickpwn 2.2 and jailbreak your iPhone, then install yellowsn0w (not yellowst0ne :)).

1. you do not need an AT&T sim card to jailbreak, i have done several with no sim at all.
2. DO NOT upgrade to 2.2.1, this will upgrade your baseband and not allow you to software unlock your iPhone (which is what you want to do).

post up any questions you have, i'll help you out along the way.


i think this tutorial will help you the best for your unlocking process.
1. Download Quickpwn 2.2, link here:

mac:

mirrors:

2. If you did not update your iPhone to 2.2 on the computer you are going to be jailbreaking with, you have to download a copy of the 2.2 firmware to the computer.

links:

original iPhone 2.2 firmware:
http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite...0081120.Pt5yH/iPhone1,1_2.2_5G77_Restore.ipsw

iPhone 3g firmware:
http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite...0081120.Aqw4R/iPhone1,2_2.2_5G77_Restore.ipsw

3. Plug in your iPhone
4. sync your iPhone if you have not synced in awhile in order to back up any new contacts, pictures, or other data you won't want to lose in case you have to do a restore.

5. Quit iTunes
6. Open and run quickpwn 2.2
7. Follow steps and you will be jailbroken
8. Open Cydia, when it asks what type of user you are, select developer (no filters) *this is not critical but i have found it works the best for me*
9. Go to the manage tab on the bottom of the cydia window
10. click on sources and then edit in the upper right hand corner, then add in the upper left hand corner.
11. add this source exactly as it appears here: http://apt9.yellowsn0w.com/
*note, the 0 in sn0w is a ZERO and not a capital O*
12. once that source is added select sections in cydia, then all packages, then download yellowsn0w.
13. if you do not have bossprefs installed you will need to download that as well.
14. Disable everything in BossPrefs
15. Reboot your iPhone using BossPrefs
16. Wait 1 min, 30 seconds when you see the lockscreen
17. Take your sim out and reinsert it
18. Wait a second
19. In settings turn on Airplane Mode
20. Turn off Airplane Mode
21. Your iPhone 3G should unlocked and working now!
22. Call me Helen Keller :)
