Iphone 2g 3.1.3 - Restore, reinstall questions
Dear Forum members;
I am pretty much at a beginner level when it comes to Jailbreaking / unlocking, I have purchased my 2g Iphone 8gb 1.5 years ago via ebay, sent to some guy to jailbreak, had problems with it, never really used additional software. Now I want to take control and make use of it;
Its installed 3.1.3 (7E18)
can use it with different sims (never had to use AT&T)
but everytime these few people tried to connect ITunes, it locked itself in the past, so was never be able to use any jailbroken software with it, and also kept losing "Available HD Space on it" everytime I sent a guy to reinstall it.
so now I don't have the original AT&T simcard, whoever bought with it when they first activated it.
1-Can I still somehow delete everything, Restore completely to factory settings, and then take matters in my own hands and restart a successful jailbreak / unlock process myself?
2-I have been reading posts, and one thing got my attention in one post that some people can't activate the phone anymore after they restore because they don't have the original AT&T simcard. I don't wanna get trapped in that.
3-If that's the case, can I just borrow a friends AT&T simcard and put that in and activate my 2g again and then jailbreak / unlock again?
my main concern is to get this process right so that I can at last start my jailbroken / unlocked iphone 2g close to its full potential. I know its a bit late, but better late than never?
thanks for your time in advance
