    Default Stuck w/ 2.1 Locked - What I do to unlock/activate?

    So I tried to upgrade my pwned 2.0 flat iphone 2G to 2.1. Needless to say I ran into lots of problems like error code 6, 1600, 2001 etc etc.

    So now I am stuck with a fully locked - normal restored 2.1 firmware - phone.
    As soon as I boot it up it gets the "Sim card invalid" bs.

    So now my question is, what do I need to do to get this 2.1 unlocked and activated again? Don't really care about the jailbreak - that's just a bonus and I never have really used any of the Cydia or Installer apps anyway.

    Is it just a matter of Quickpwn'ing it? If so can someone point me to instructions on how to do it on Windows? I have a Macbook but for some reason it doesn't like my USB port. I always get errors on it but I managed to get my phone to 2.1 normal restore on my Win machine.

    Thanks!

    Yes you just need to Activate/jailbreak/Unlock again

    Both guides are for Mac for windows there is an Dev team unsupported tool available

    But otherwise you will need to wait for new windows Quickpwn / Winpwn 3 to jailbreak 2.1

    No you do not, I did it last night. If you are on Windows with itunes 8.0 installed, you need to

    1. restore to 2.0.2 via itunes
    2. quickpwn (rc3) so you unlock/jailbreak/activate
    3. update to 2.1 via itunes

    this gave me unlocked/activated 2.1 but not jailbroken (need to wait for quickpwn for 2.1 for that).

    Good luck.

    How do you restore to an older firmware via itunes? Do I have to do it via the pwnage tool method? and the custom 2.0.2 ipsw?

    Everytime you go to the restore button in itunes it always is "restore & update to latest"
