[All Firmwares] Generate legit activation tokens! Genuine activation!
This will probably be patched at some point. This works because at the moment, the activation server gets confused with 2G and 3G iPhones and as a result... Activates 2G ones for us without a contract ;)
To take advantage of this: Simply update to 2.0 and try and go through the reg process. It will not ask for anything to do with tariffs. It will ask you to accept so T&C's and for your Apple ID. Your phone will also say activating twice and then stop.
When updating, make sure you have a SIM card from your official carrier in it.
Tell me what you think! Tested on about 4 iPhones. My iPhone now restores to any firmware and does not ask for ANY activation :) It does it by itself officially.
Dan2552 from IRC has tested it.
I have tested it multiple times

Use this method at your own risk! Apple will probably patch it soon though. I am James M from MMi and James_ from IRC.
THIS WILL SIM LOCK YOUR PHONE ALTHOUGH YOU CAN DOWNGRADE TO 1.1.4 AND UNLOCK!
This will keep us activated no matter what firmware we upgrade/downgrade to!
