    i want to jailbreak my buddy's iphone 2g running 3.0. my problem is that it is unlocked already and running t mobile but do not see cydia. im a bit of a noob here and don't wanna screw up her jailbreak. i was going to follow the guide in here for redsnow but was wondering if it will cause problems cause its already unlocked. i almost tried using the spirit jb but it does not support the firmware. what jb method do you guys recommend for my case? thanks in advance

    I would go with pwnage tool myself. Also upgrade that thing to 3.1.3. 2G phones can be unlocked at anytime.

    Upgrade to 3.1.3 from iTunes (don't worry, you won't lose the unlock). Download 3.1.2 (not 3.1.3) ipsw from the Downloads section here.
    Download redsn0w 0.9.4.

    After the upgrade is completed, run Redsn0w on it. Point at the 3.1.2 ipsw (not 3.1.3, again I repeat, this is important) and let it run.

    Select Unlock and Cydia (not already Pwned but anything else you want) and follow the directions.

    All done. This is the most efficient and effective way to do it.

    **Edit** To clarify:

    Firmware to expect to upgrade to: 3.1.3 (not 3.1.2)

    Firmware ipsw to use for Redsn0w: 3.1.2 (not 3.1.3)

    I just wanted to clear that up--some people get confused with the two being used for separate things.
