    Yes, you can. Any iPhone on 3.0-4.0.1 can be jailbroken using jailbreakme.com. I don't know where celticpride gets his info, but it's not good. You will need a SIM to activate it, though.

    Probably a better way of doing it would be to use redsn0w to both jailbreak and unlock. It can also hacktivate the phone, so you will not need a SIM. Probably the best solution.

    No you cannot. Because the iPhone 2G does not exist. Non existent devices can not be jailbroken.

    Hacktivating made my YouTube not work. I used my iPhone 4 sim on my iPhone and then used jailbreakme.

    Ok Captain Semantics. I'm pretty sure 1) you know what he means and 2) you aren't helping at all.

    Thankfully, others have answered his question for him.

    The device is called iPhone, not iPhone 2G. That's what he means. ;)
