    Let me guess - you were previously unlocked, and not using the official SIM Card?

    And also, let me guess - you connected to iTunes and accidentally upgraded to the most current OS ("operating system"), which is 3.1.3, right?

    Ok. Here's what you do.

    Go here, and follow each direction in detail.

    Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3 with Redsn0w 0.9.4 | Redmond Pie

    If you are confused, LET ME KNOW. You will need to download te following:

    redsn0w 0.94 (from link in tutorial)
    iPhone 2G Firmware 3.1.2 (from link in tutorial)
    iPhone 2G Firmware 3.1.3 Install + Update (from iTunes)

    Follow all of those steps, and then get back to me.

    AT THR END, and this is important - when you get to the unlocking process for the 2G, do this:

    After installing Cydia, it will ask you questions, and to update. Select "Graphical User", and "Complete Upgrade". Let it restart and reboot. Once it does it's thing...*

    In Cydia, search for the app BootNeuter and install the app. Open BootNeuter and make sure the settings match are exactly as follows:

    Version: 4.6
    Neuter: On
    Faceblank: Off
    Baseband: Unlock

    Then tap "Flash" in the upper right corner to unlock.

    When you connect your iPhone to your computer in iTunes your phone will show up in the left hand side window, under the device section.

    If you click on thr device, a new window pops up in the main window. There, you can either update or restore to a new OS ("operating system").

    Thanks......But I guess I am just stupid.......Downloading redsn0w and all. Starting it, following the link and what they say, open redsn0w, browse, then it freezes at processing firmware.

    Nothing more. I have tried it now 3-4 times, stops at the same place.
