    I unlocked my 1st gen iPhone twice with ZiPhone, though it's said to be less stable than Pwnage tool, for example.

    Do not use ziphone it does not have 2.0.1 firmware. go to planet-iphone.com and sleepers.net.

    After jailbreaking everything should work. do not forget t-zones hack in cydia and total internet. No problem with photo's though itunes.

    follow the instuctions closely, may take a couple try's to pwnage with winpwn the biggest thing is getting iphone in DFU and getting the right firmware should be 2.0.1__5B108.

    I unlocked my iPhone a few days ago. (I am also on a Mac and used Pwnage.) All you have to do is to get the original firmware 2.0.1 and boot neuter 3.9 and 4.6 and you're good to go. Safe all three files on your desktop.
    Connect your iPhone to your Mac. Then start Pwnage and choose simple mode. The program will find the firmware by itself. You only have to tell it where to find the two boot neuter files. After that Pwnage will build a custom firmware bundle with Cyndia and Installer included. As a last step, Pwnage will guide you how to put your iPhone into DFU mode.
    Once your iPhone is in DFU mode switch to iTunes. Hold down the option key and press "restore iphone". Then select the custom firmware (It'll be on your desktop.) and let iTunes do the rest. After the restore is completed, tell iTunes to set up your iPhone as a new phone and you're good to go. :)
