    Default iPhone 2G stuck in activate (but remains unlock)

    Today I downloaded the iPhone 2G 3.0 GM from BitTorrent. I had the iPhone unlocked with 2.2.1 with no jailbreak. I made the mistake of Restore (Alt/Restore) instead of Update, so I'm stuck in a "Activate" state. When I connect the iPhone to iTunes I can't activate.

    How can I just activate the iPhone? I receive a SMS in the Activate state so it's unlock.

    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

    PS: I tried to downgrade to 2.2.1 and iTunes won't let me (Error 20).....any help please?

    You have to put your iphone 2g in DFU mode and then restore 2.2.1 firmware...
    I just did that yesterday, because i had the same problem...

    I tried both the "Restore" and "Check for update" but still the iPhone is stuck in "Activate" state. Grabbed the 2g 3.0 gm ipsw from a torrent link. Any idea why? or any solution on how to stay activated after upgrading from 2.2.1?

    Default Solved!

    Hi,
    I was able to make this works. What I did was:

    1.- Uninstall iTunes 8.2 https://twerbose.com/t8791
    2.- DFU Restore to 2.2.1
    3.- QuickPwn 2.2.1
    4.- Update iTunes to 8.2 again
    5.- Alt/Update to 3.0 GM

    Now works great

    Thanks!

    Well, I just shift+updated to 3.0 and it worked
    Now I have to wait for the jailbreak so I can fix Caller ID.
    Unless someone has a way to do that w/o jailbreak

    You meant quickpwn 2.2.5 right?
    You did it through windows or mac?
    Thanks

    Default unlock but no activate

    I have done that, but the phone isn't activated, only unlocked... Now I can't go back to 2.2.1 (with itunes 8.2 or 8.1) got "error 20" with any version

    ufff... I have solved the "error 20", I wasn't enter into DFU mode correctly. Now I'll try again
