Iphone possibly brick.. someone verify?
So I have an Iphone 2g 8gb I bought from a friend. He had the phone unlocked. I wanted to update it and for the lack of knowing what I was doing I've caused a problem I don't know how to fix.
I began restoring my iphone figuring I could start from the beginning and Activate/jailbreak/unlock the phone myself since it seemed pretty simple. As my iphone finished restoring it came up with this screen
Now if I try to use anything like Iliberty or Ziphone it gets stuck not going into "recovery" mode.
Then I get stuck with something like this picture below not being able to get back to the picture above unless I restore my phone.
I've read several things that may suggest my iphone is bricked but I've yet to ask anyone who knows enough about unlocking and jailbreaking an Iphone to tell me that it's bricked.
I was under the assumption that if your iphone is bricked you can't activate it. But if I had an at&t sim card i would be able to activate it and still have a working phone.
is it still possible to jailbreak/unlock/activate my phone?
