    ok so im helping out a friend jqilbreak and unlock his 1st gen iphone. i updated it to 3.0.1 jailbroke it via redsnow 0.8 pointing it to 3.0 ipsw. jailbreak went swell. so i go ahead and input the repo on cydia for ultrasn0w. installed ultrasn0w. reboot the device and for like 15mins its still searching for a network. long story short. can we unlock the 1st gen iphones this way or is there another way? im also wondering if i just have low signal here at home. i cant say for sure as i have a 3gs.

    When I just jailbroke and unlocked my wifes yesterday using redsnow, after finding the ipsw file it asks about installing cydia, icy and unlocking it. So in short you should have had a box to check in redsnow that would have unlocked it.

    Yes like he said , Ultra Snow is for 3g iPhones. Redsn0w is for jailbreaking 2g-3g and unlocking 2g iphones. It should have a box next to Install Cydia or Icy but another box for Unlock. You will need to search google for the needed files to unlock your iphone!
