    Default jailbreak / hacktivate / unlock 2G iphone

    Hi there,
    I got the iPhone 1.1.4 and I tried to upgrade it by using iTunes yesterday. The iTunes asked me to restore the phone and I just klicked to ok and left the pc. When I came back the process was done BUT I just couldn't go in to my phone any more. I was just showing the usb cable and iTunes logo on the display. Right now I can't do anything with my phone! And Im scared that I might have lost all my pictures, phone book, notes... etc etc. I've talked to Apple today and they said that I might still have all that info on the pc stored. We have checked the iTunes-Edit-Preferences-Devices and see that my phones name was there so the Apple person told me that the info is still on the pc. I just have to unlock my phone or get a new phone he said. And not I NEED YOUR HELP. SOMEONE CAN HELP ME WITH THE UNLOCKING/JAILBRAKING process. I have checked the internet yesterday, but all the things I found didn't help me. I need step by step help. PLEASE.
    Thanks so much

    You were threadjacking (replying to a relatively un-related thread)

    First you need to make a backup copy of the backup on your local machine. iTunes is very good at overwriting this.

    I have explained how to do this in other threads. The location is different on windows/mac.

    On windows it is under %APPDATA%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    Find the folder that corresponds to the last date/time you synced the iPhone. Then copy or zip that folder as a backup.

    Secondly you need to jailbreak/hacktivate and unlock.

    Unless your home or power buttons are broken, use redsn0w for this.

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using RedSn0w (Windows)

    The guide above is not 100% right, you're going to need 3.1.2 IPSW (downloaded from here)

    I recommend you get your redsn0w from the original trusted source: redsn0w 0.9.2 [iPhone Dev Team] (iclarified links to a beta version mirrored on rapidshare)

    You also can skip step 2 (you have already done this)
