    Default Messed up my iPhone 2G pretty bad while upgrading to 3.0

    So I was trying to upgrade from 2.2.1 to 3.0 and I used iTunes to upgrade to the 3.0 ispw as stated in the dev teams instructions for redsn0w. At first I couldn't proceed, but then I noticed I had iTunes 8, so I upgraded that to 9 and I could restore to the original 3.0 ispw. When I tried to start the device, it just shows me the cable + itunes picture and iTunes doesn't let me do anything since it's not the AT&T sim card. I can't restore to 2.2.1 either for some reason, and redsn0w stops working halfway through the procedure, every single time.

    So I'm stuck here, I think I've tried just about everything, but I still can't upgrade or downgrade and I can't use the phone either.

    I would be greatful for any help. Also, I'm banned from #iphone irc channel for some reason when I tried to ask there, is there a way to deal with that problem as well? Thanks in advance!

    Use PwnageTool 3.1 from Dev-Team Blog to upgrade your iPhone to firmware 3.1, no point in sticking with 3.0, and it'll unlock your iPhone. You'll need to download the firmware and the bootloaders, but they're fairly easy to find on google...

    Isn't the pwnagetool for Mac users only? I forgot to say that I'm using Windows and do not have access to a Mac for this. If not, then what program do you use to open the file with?

    Google around and you'll find custom 2G 3.1 IPSWs which are hacktivated and unlocked. All you'll need to do then is Shift + Restore in iTunes and you're good to go.

    Tried and it didn't work. "Unknown error (1600)" is what I get :/

    You'll need to put the phone in DFU mode.

    It's been in DFU mode everytime I've done that. Otherwise iTunes just tells me to insert the right sim card, and won't let me restore at all.

    Try restoring to 3.0.1 first. If it successfully goes through, then use the custom 3.1 IPSW.

    As I said in the first post, I've already tried to restore to 3.0.1 (DFU mode, since iTunes won't accept my phone's sim card otherwise). It doesn't let me, I only get the 1600 error.
