    Ok, so I need help. This iPhone 2G won't restore, it's stuck in Recovery, for some reason. I tried restoring in iTunes, but it fails as soon as the restore starts. So I'm downloading the 3.0.1 firmware to downgrade to, and I'll post back as soon as I see what happens. Anyone care to enlighten me on this error?

    EDIT: 3.0.1 FW doesn't help. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Use an older version of iTunes.

    I would suggest going to 3.1.3 and using Redsn0w to jailbreak and unlock.

    So if I were to use it on say, my old laptop (Windows Vista, using Snow Leopard now) then it would work maybe? I'll try tomorrow and report back. Cross your fingers

    I dont think you can downgrade to that? just get 3.1.2 you can restore to that from any firmware im pretty sure. then jailbreak with spirit

    Alright I just tried it with the Windows computer. Tried to restore to 3.0.1, and it gave me the Error 2002. Tried with 3.1.3 and it gave me Error 28 again. SO FRUSTRATING

    Already tried that, did not work. Anyone know what actually causes the Error 28?
