    Hi,
    I'm trying to Unlock an iPhone 2G, Jailbraking with Redsn0w goes well all the way and everything works as it should be.

    The problem is, even if Redsn0w process goes well, the phone gives No Service msg.

    Is there anything to fix this issue?

    Jailbreaking is NOT an unlock. For your iphone 2g, you should have the option to check the Box "unlock" during the redsn0w jailbreak process.

    here is a link to a good guide:
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/iphone...ak-unlock-iphone-2g-firmware-3-0-redsn0w.html

    make sure that both the checkbox "Cydia" (app for install jailbreak apps) and "Unlock" (SIM unlock for iphone 2g) are checked.

    you also need the .bin files for your Bootloader. Just follow the guide in the link.

    NOTE: before you do the redsn0w process again make sure you restore to original 3.0 FW again! do not jailbreak on top of your old JB!

    Sure I've checked both Cydia & Unlock.

    thought there might be bugs with redsn0w, so I tried on a Mac with PwnageTool, and as on the PC, everything goes as planed without any errors, but the phone still locked.

    ok, try this:

    go to cydia, and search for and downlaod bootneuter.

    choose your BL version, check neuter to ON, fakeblank to OFF, and Unlock to ON. then press flash. also read entire more info section before doing running the program.

    this should work as 3.0 BB for 2g phones is same as for 2.X FW

    you cant, redsn0w required you to have a fresh restore of 3.0
