    Default Unlocked/jailbroken Iphone 2g - general questions

    Hello, I'm a total newb, and I apologize in advance for the absurdity of some of the things I'm about to ask.

    I purchased a jb/ul 2g iphone on ebay, and I'm wondering what I can do with the thing. I would like to use it as a Go Phone, prepaid service with AT&T (I live in the US). Is that possible?

    Also, can I sync with the iTunes? It has to be in DFU mode, right? Can anyone explain that a little better to me? I read the iseminar, but I'm still a little unclear on the details.

    My phone is running 1.1.4, if that is of any help.

    Thanks much for any replies!

    Hi,
    Regarding to your questions:
    - Yes
    - Yes
    - There is no need for DFU for sync. About DFU: [FW 2.x](2G&3G) DFU and recovery mode (getting in and out of)

    Try the 2.2 FW. Good tutorial here: How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 2G iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

    Thanks for the reply, I know it looks like I didn't read or search, but honestly, I'm not sure what I'm looking at when I do.

    But...if I try to upgrade my firmware through iTunes, say from 1.1.4 to 2.2, it bricks the phone?

    You can't brick a phone updating from 1.1.4 to 2.2

    So i got my (jb/ul) phone in the mail, and most things seem to work. Connects on my home network for browsing, but
    1. can't connect to youtube.
    2. Most of the apps through Installer aren't downloadable, and
    3. I would like to add standard apps like Facebook and Urbanspoon, but I don't see the "apps" icon that iphones are supposed to have.

    Any suggestions? thanks again.
