    Your phone is still unlocked from 2.0 to 2.0.1 because fw 2.0.1 did not include a baseband update.

    When there is a new fw, what you need to do is wait and find out if a new baseband version is also include. If so, you need to wait until the new bb can be unlocked.

    A fw update will not "brick" your phone. It simply removes the unlock. The word "brick" implies your phone is completely dead.

    I have no idea what you are referring to as "semi-unlock".
    In the iphone world, there are 3 terms:

    - jailbreak = root access to file system to you can install apps, back door and ect ...

    - activation = activate the phone (get pass that slide for emergency).

    - unlock = allow the usage of any vendors ' SIM

    In your case, it sounds like the phone is not activated. I suggest you recreate your custom firmware and restore it to the phone.

    If you are on ATT (I wish you say this in the beginning) then you don't have to click on activate when create custom firmware.

    When you connect phone via itumes, it should activate the phone because this is a legitimate subscription. Bootneuter is for unlock, if you want to unlock the phone then yes.

    I'm going to move your questions into a separate thread because it's off topic

    Oh.. sorry,
    what I meant is if you want to unlock your ATT phone then you select bootneuter when you create your custom image.

    If you phone baseband is already unlocked, then you don't have to run bootneuter again.

    I have no idea how you created your custom image the first time you restored it to your iphone therefore I cannot be very specific for you.

    put iphone in DFU mode if phone has never been pwned before.
    Put iphone in restore mode if phone has been pwned before.
