hi everyone, my friend gave me his old iPhone 2g and I wanted to get it unlock. so far I downloaded below. I started winpwn 2.5 and started with the installation. Why is it asking for me to start iTunes and choose to activate my iPhone? (choose rate plan and pick data plan). What am I doing wrong. Thanks for any input.


winpwn 2.5
iPhone 1,1 2.0.2_5C1_retore.ipsw

Okay, if you want to use Winpwn and stick with 2.0.1, follow this guide. Nowhere in those steps do you need to activate your iPhone within iTunes. Start over from scratch, or if you've already built your custom IPSW file, you should put the iPhone into DFU mode to be select the custom IPSW and install it.

Thank you so much. I got it unlocked.
