    There are several active threads with all the information you need now.

    What you need to do is:
    • Sync (backup) your phone in iTunes
    • Restore your phone
    • Upgrade to 2.2.1 via iTunes
    • Jailbreak using QuickPwn (check the unlock box if you want to unlock your phone)
    • Backup your data from iTunes to the phone

    You don't want Yellowsnow, that is for 3G phones. You want QuickPwn to jailbreak and unlock your 2G. Read the guides on this forum area.
