    blackra1n is for the 3g and 3gs if you need to unlock look for bootneuter.

    Yes. You will need two applications. You go to blackra1n.com and download tht program to jailbreak.

    Once you're jailbroken and your iPhone has restarted, open the "blackra1n" app on your iPhone. Install "Cydia".

    Once Cydia installs, go through the motions. Follow all of it's prompts. Let your phone reboot.

    Open Cydia again, and then do a search for "BootNeuter". That will be how you unlock your original (2G) iPhone.

    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    Have you tried some of the common fixes?

    1. Make sure iTunes and the background process is not running.
    2. Save blackra1n.exe to C: drive and run it from there.
    3. If on Vista or Win7, run as Administrator and XP Compatibility Mode.

    I had the same issue and what worked for me was changing the usb port from the front of the pc to the back.

    After jailbreaking - launch blackra1n and install Cydia.

    Once Cydia is installed - launch the icon and it acts just like the App Store except for jailbroken apps.

    Not sure what you mean by free apps - some are free and some charge for the app. Just go to Cydia and/or Apple app store and buy them there. If they're free, then you won't be charged.

    For instance, Categories is free but CategoriesSB is $0.99

    If you're looking for paid apps for free, that's not allowed here on the forums.

    Once you install Cydia, most of the apps will be available and the source you need is already set up. Are there specific apps you're looking for?

    In Cydia, check out the Featured Apps when Cydia first loads by clicking on Featured Packages. You can also click on Sections at the bottom and browse the apps by category.
