    So I am buying a iPhone 2g off ebay and I was wondering if I have to worry about baseband updates and all that if I am never going to get service on it. I just want to jailbreak it to get it out of emergency mode and use it like an iPod touch. And does the activation screen get bypassed when I jailbreak?

    The 2G's are unlockable regardless of their firmware and basebands. You can update it all you want and not lose the ability to perform the unlock.

    Blackra1n will not get you past the activation screen. You will either want an at+t SIM or Pwnage Tool to get it activated (or hactivated). Since you want it jailbroken as well I would use Pwnage Tool and go that route.
