    You just need to put it in either Recovery or DFU mode then restore it to 2.0.

    It will be just like getting a new iPhone!

    Yay!

    You could do that.

    I don't know why you wouldn't just do 2.0 since it's free for the iPhone. :rolleyes:

    That's far from bricked. It's locked...either the person sold it without restoring it or it's stolen.

    Boot it into DFU mode by powering it off and then holding the lock and home buttons for 10 seconds and then releasing the lock button and still holding down home until it pops up in iTunes as in a recovery mode. Restore it from there. All this must be done while the iPhone is plugged in.
