    the iPhone probably was already unlocked at firmware 2.x so the unlock stayed when you upgraded. Do a DFU restore to Apple stock firmware 2.2.1 then use Quickpwn (you're on Windows, right?) again. Have your simcard in the iPhone while doing so.

    The Orange logo is there cause the iPhone is unlocked - the baseband is. iTunes does fail cause the iPhone is not activated.

    So you did DFU restore (black screen) to Apple stock firmware 2.2.1 and then use Quickpwn 2.2.5? This should do the job.

    You said you got an iPhone 2G, Yellowsn0w is iPhone 3G only.

    Once an iPhone 2G is at stock Apple firmware 2.2.1 you need Quickpwn 2.2.5_2 (Windows) to jailbreak, activate, unlock.
    See the tutorial here:
    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 2G iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

    For mac use the tutorial here:

    Try restoring the phone and running the jailbreak/unlock WITHOUT the sim card in. This just recently worked for me.
    After everything runs and the iphone reboots it shoudl say no sim etc or something, then just put your sim in and you should be good.

    The latest version of itunes is to blame.
    It has a new authentication scheme.
    And for some reason nobody wants to talk about this or how to fix it.

    I made a post about this some time ago it got shunted into the tools forum where nobody bothers respond.

    This is a serious issue and for some reason people on hackintosh are ignoring it.

    Im on the look out for a more active community if you know of one please pM me.
    The latest Itunes will only work with the offical sim card.
    So on my 3G i put in the O2 Pay&Go sim and got itunes to work.
    But on my 2G which was from the USA for which I dont have the orignal AT&T sim Im basiclly shafted.
    TIll I figure out a way arround this new itunes crap.
    God I hate apple.
