iPhone 2g, lost Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, help?
OK here is my story, I have had the iphone 2g since launch in the UK, I have never unlocked it until recently, I attempted using bootneuter after using blackra1n to jailbreak, it froze at determining settings after what it said was a successful flash.

I read up on this and gave it a try.
During the process I got various 10xx errors while restoring (as it said I would), then as instructed on the third restore using itunes 7.5 to got the phone to 1.1.4, still greyed out wi-fi!?
So at this point I'm thinking, its screwed, so I start to look around and see Zibri's famous wi-fi fix,
I thought hey give it a try, so I did, it seemed to hang and not work, so I updated to 3.1.2 and my wi-fi was back, with Zibris MAC address and still no bluetooth available.
So my main question is can anyone help me restore my initial mac address and regain bluetooth functionality? or am I now stuck with this MAC?
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
You should have stayed with kiPhone (which is a modified version of ziphone to fix some of the worst bits) Never use ziphone, it is a dangerous tool made by someone who lacked the full understanding of the code and tools he managed to keep a copy of before the dev team kicked him out.

Note with iLiberty plus the default repository for payloads is wrong in the downloaded version.

Thanks for your speedy reply.
What steps should I take to recover? I have working wi fi just this MAC address is annoying me now, and my bluetooth is gone,
I understand the bluetooth address is one digit away from the original mac address for wifi?
If this is the case how can I get my orginal mac address with no bluetooth address to compare it with?
