    I've been reading up on this for quite sometime, and there were VERY few threads (that I could find) on here about this.

    Generally the most used answer is to DFU and restore. My question is--assuming the impossible hasn't happened and there is no way to bypass this screen and get back to the password screen or better yet, the homescreen-- is there any software that allows you to at least browse/access the files from inside the phone? Being that the phone in question is locked and wifi is not activated, I don't see how SSH is possible. But are there any programs (be they windows OR mac) that allow file access while the phone is in this state?

    Or, worst yet...is a full (and file-erasing) restore the ONLY option?

    can't you connect to itunes and have it un-disabled? Or is this not your phone?
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    I don't see how. It's a jailbroken 1st gen, so there's no telling if the serial is even linked to the right person. Plus, since it's locked i can't even do an activation-screen bypass (that i know of) or a password attempt. She and I both have our own 3Gs's so I've got no need for it.

    And if i restore and delete all the info, THEN how could I even locate an owner?
