    hey I need some quick help. I've got an iPhone 2g I bought from a friend. It was in restore mode so i went to jailbreak it (I JUST want to use it as an iPod Touch, without phone service.) but now it says I need a sim card in it to authorize it with itunes? Ive tried blackra1n and all with no luck. Its on 3.1.3 now.

    ANy help?

    Since it is on 3.1.3 you will need to restore it to a custom firmware made with Pwnage Tool. There may be an option to downgrade it to 3.1.2 and then you can run blackra1n with it but I am not certain.

    Hey, I was just in a situation similar to yours. I bought a 2g iphone and for the time being just using it as a regular ipod. Check out this vid and follow the instructions. It should work like a charm.
