Discuss Buying iphone at the General - Hackint0sh.org; ...
I had a 2g iphone and went over to having a g1 but are really thing about moving back to an iphone 3g and selling the g1. Now i have been offered by a friend of a friend a 3g one at £230 which is a ok price but sold as faulty as he tried to delete everything to sell and put back to standard but when he did this all he gets now is the picture of Steve jobs and the NPEBEA saying. Now i flashed the old 2g for t-mobile so know how to do this. Does this problem look like it can be fixed or is it a bit of a risk and a waste of like £230. which i don't have until i sell the g1.
Wow. its hard to get what you are trying to tell us.

This did not work out, he got stuck. I know, cause he is stuck in recovery mode (showing Steve). This always happens on jaibroken iPhones, you cant use the feature, you're stuck in almost all cases.
I dont know what you are trying to tell with the 2G firmware. Did you try to apply it on the 3G iPhone??? This never works.
if the iPhone is still showing Steve you might want to try to shift-restore to firmware 2.2 FOR 3G iPhones. If this works out, you're safe, cause the iPhone has 02.28 modem and can be unlocked afterwards.
Cant tell you more cause the history of the iPhone is missing: What firmware was it at before he tried to erase? was it unlocked? How?
