    Question Unlock/Jailbreak a validly-activated phone (for push)?

    Hey folks,

    I just inherited an ATT iPhone 2g from a family friend. Sweet. I don't live in the US, so obviously unlock/jb are a must for me.

    I've been reading through the forums trying to figure out how to enable push notifications for my phone. Here's the story so far:

    1. Received a validly-activated iphone w/ 2.x firmware
    2. I've successfully used pwnagetool to install/hacktivate/unlock/JB my iphone with fw v3.1.2.
    3. Installed a bunch of apps and generally had a stupid grin on my face for having an iPhone.
    4. Realized that the certs that I had on the iPhone before I overwrote it with hacktivated firmware would probably make push work.

    I'd like to get push notifications working. After reading the forums, this is my plan of action. Will what I have in mind work?

    1. Use pwnagetool to make a 3.1.2 ipsw WITHOUT "activate" checked. E.G. jailbroken and unlocked but not hacktivated.
    2. Use my friend's AT&T sim to activate via iTunes.
    3. Pop out the AT&T sim, pop in my non-AT&T sim.
    4. Download all my apps again... (?)

    If my plan doesn't work, how else would you go about the process? I have the original AT&T sim at my disposal.

    On a related note: I've purchased a bunch of apps via the app store. Will I need to repurchase those apps after reformatting my iPhone?

    Use iTunes to have the iPhone 2G at 3.1.2 with your friends AT&T simcard in, let iTunes do the activation. This will make sure you get proper activation record on the iPhone.
    Use PwnageTool to create a custom 3.1.2 without activation enabled - leave his AT&T card in. Do the complete jailbreak/unlock doodle. PwnageTool is clever, not touching the activation records.
    Get a free push app from Apples App Store like AIM lite or so. Setup push and give it a shot. Should be working
    Switch simcards now and you`re done.

    Without copying in a patched lockdownd first won't swapping in the non AT&T SIM card result in the phone requiring activation again? I thought this was how it worked on a 2G iPhone.

    There is a similar thread where I suggested using pushfix to solve the same problem. Jailbroken iphone - PUSH / ACTIVATION problem - Hackint0sh
