    Same here, the poor 2G is being neglected! Are we able to update to 3.1 and re JB/UNLOCK on the 2G?

    Thanks

    I don't think anyone has unlocked 3.1 regardless of the model.

    Wait for the Dev Team to release their update for Pwnage Tool, which should hopefully come later this week.

    The 2G is not being neglected. Pwnage Tool will let you do everything you want.

    Haha, wow...

    But really... Now you have to downgrade to 3.0 if you want to use your phone. Since you have a 2G it shouldn't be too bad.

    I think you can just take a 3.0.1 IPSW created with Pwnage tool and just Alt+Click restore and restore it to 3.0.1. If not, then you may have to go to DFU mode first.

    Then hit your cousin really hard and gloat about how you were totally right. :D

    well, dont think there is anything that can be done in terms of unlocking it for other carriers...upgrade to 3.1 updates the baseband and you cant downgrade the baseband. Now, thats currently...you never know, down the road you might be able to. However, right now there is no way.

    Also, i dunno if this applies to the 2G....im 50/50 on this...so others will chime in for sure.

    if you dont need unlock (on ATT) then its just a matter of time before they have a JB for 3.1

    Correct me if im wrong guys...

    2G should be Unlocked on all basebands. So nothing to worry about there. Just downgrade I think.

    I'm assuming it ended up well and you're prancing through the fields with your newly jailbroken iPhone 1G wishing Apple had upgraded it with MMS so you could send pictures to your friends! At least when they send you videos you can save them! :p
