    So I updated this iPhone 3G and now it won't pass the activation screen, it's not blacklisted because it was always mine and it won't even show on iTunes?

    I could be wrong but I believe that's usually a hardware failure. I had something like that happen after I used Aptbackup in Cydia once on a 3GS. I took it to Apple and they replaced it under the warranty. Obviously you don't have a warranty though.

    Sounds like a hardware issue.

    That's a bummer! I have other newer iPhones so it won't be a big loss but it's always nice to have those working

    I think I'd be able to make more money out of the 2G iPhone than that one because the first iPhone at least have a like vintage value lol
