    Default iActivator

    So long story short I am fixing an iPhone 2G (I think it is) and it was bought overseas probably US and I am in Australia. I am trying to jailbreak/activate so I can use it as a phone or at least an iPod but iActivator needs jailbreak firmware files in order to put a PEM file onto the order to activate so I don't get the error:

    Activation failed with code -402653183. from iActivator

    iTunes just says

    We're sorry, We are unable to continue with your activation at this time.
    Please try again later, or contact customer care.

    Where do I get these firmware files for iActivator?

    Google didn't help, neither did searching on here.

    Why do you need to use this program called iActivator? In all of the time I've been jailbreaking iPhones, I've never heard of this program being relevant. Is it because you want the iPhone to be on a particular software, or does your computer recognize redsn0w as a virus? Lol , maybe this program is a virus and that's why it's asking you to put a pem file on the phone. Unless you could go into more detail as to why this particular program is relevant to the activation of this phone, I strongly recommend to just use the Dev-Team created tool called redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak after you restore your iPhone 2G to 3.0.1, because this is really the simplest way to hacktivate the iPhone 2G.

    Let me know if this helps!!!!

    Oh, and make sure when you jailbreak your iPhone, you also install the saurik-created package called PDF patch, as that protects the iPhone from any viruses a PDF file may contain.
