    Hi, i am an owner of an ipod touch 2G but one question has annoyed me for a while. Is the iPhone 2G hardware unlocked so apple cant fix it in updates or is it software and apple just gave up cause the iPhone 3G came?

    I believe the vulnerability was found in the hardware so the baseband unlock exploit cannot be closed.

    even thoguh the unlock is hardware level, apple have not updated the baseband for iphone 2g in a very long time.
