error (23). Did i just brick my 2g (rev1) iphone?
i started out with an activated 2g iphone on 3.0 firmware. i wanted to jailbreak and unlock it for a trip to a foreign country i'm taking this friday. i was lost in a sea of options. maybe a flow chart would have been helpful. anyways, i decided to run the 3.0 version of PwnageTool. i checked "Enable baseband update", "Neuter bootloader", "Update bootloader", "Upgrade to 4.6", "Unlock baseband". i also accidentally left the "Activate the phone" option checked. i went into DFU mode, connected to itunes and after a while it hit:
The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (23)
i have osx 10.5.8 and itunes 9.0.2. i retried so many times with firmwares 2.0, 3.0, 3.1.2. with official IPSWs and with custom ones with various combination of options, with a different mac running osx 10.5.7 and itunes 8.2, made sure "~/Library/iTunes/Device Support" directory existed on each mac but i hit the same error 23 every time. now i have an deactivated iphone. does anybody know how i can recover?

You do have the iPhone in recovery mode? iTunes is not running.
