    That was me 2 months ago with my newly acquired first-gen. After much un-success at pwning, I did a regular "Apple-sanctioned" restore to stock 2.1 firmware in iTunes. (I think I had gotten the iPhone stuck in Restore mode, so I had to do something.)

    Then, pwning the 2.1 went like a breeze.

    Hey guys, Im sort of in the same spot. I have a week 32 8GB 2G iphone that im getting ready to sell. it's has 2.1 jailbroken and unlocked. I ran bootneuter from cydia and it said the BB was flashed succesfully with my legit ATT SIM card. When I put in another SIM it tell me the same as escodotcarter. How can I get pass that?

    Thanks for the help.

    I can make phone calls to a regular number from "emergency" screen. If I go back into Bootneuter it said that the setting are set to 3.6, "neuter" ON fakeblank "OFF" and"UNLOCK" ON.

    Sorry...I mis-spoke. I meant to say that I did a normal restore to Stock 2.0.2 (using that alt-click to hand select my stock 2.0.2 downloaded to my desktop). THEN, I got my custom 2.1 injected in there via iTunes 8.0. And my 2.1 is working perfect with T-mo. You better find out what your current version is before doing anything else. iLiberty will at least tell you if its "Stock" or not.

    I have a question. I am about to unlock a first gen iphone and the unlock says it will unlock EDGE. Will i still have to buy a data package for this to work with the internet? Or when it says it will unlock EDGE, the internet will work?

    I have T Mobile.
