    If you didn't use the 2 BL files that may be the problem. I find it difficult to believe that you could complete it without those 2 files tho. Those are the files needed for unlocking the phone. You may have to start over with the J/B process.
    There is a point during the J/B that it asks for those 2 files, you need to select them to continue.

    Im new with this whole i phone thing now to unlock the 2.0 i phone i need to update to 3.0 firmwear now isnt that what im downloading like one of the links?

    This guide will teach you how to jailbreak AND unlock your iPhone 2G running 3.0 firmware using RedSn0w on Windows.

    I strongly recommend you backup and restore your iPhone 2G to 3.0 firmware via iTunes BEFORE you begin this guide. By strongly recommend I mean restore to 3.0 firmware.

    You will need RedSn0w 0.7.2 which you can download here along with the iPhone 2G 3.0 firmware file available for download here. You also need the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader files. Download 3.9 here and 4.6 here.

    Once you have downloaded everything, extract redsn0w-win_0.7.2.zip to a location on your computer. You should see redsn0w.exe. Run it.

    Click Browse.



    Find your iPhone 2G 3.0 firmware file you downloaded earlier. Select it and click Open.



    RedSn0w tells you that the ISPW is successfully identified. Click Next.



    There will be a quick pop up.



    Select your options to Install Cydia and Unlock. If you don't need to unlock your iPhone 2G you can de-secelct Unlock



    If you are unlocking you need to located the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader .bin files you downloaded earlier.









    Now that you have told RedSn0w where the bootloader files are click Next.



    At this point you should make sure your iPhone 2G is plugged into your computer AND turned off. Click Next.



    RedSn0w gives you instructions. We are entering DFU mode now. First hold the power button for 3 seconds.



    Keep holding the power button and start holding the home button for 10 seconds.



    Release the power button but continue holding the home button for 30 seconds.



    RedSn0w does its thing. Let it.













    Finally RedSn0w has finished loading everything onto your phone. You will see a pretty screen on your phone as it is being Jailbroken and Unlcoked. Don't mess with your phone while all this is going on. After your phone restarts you are done!

    Before you do any of that you need to do a restore in iTunes.
    You are downloading a copy of the FW in those instructions but that is the copy that will be used to JB - you need it on yout phone first.

    I have tried this countless times now, and ever attempt ends the same. My phone stops at the image of a HD and Downloading Jailbreak Data... I have used redsn0w 0.7.2 and 0.8 on a iphone 2g with tmobile. I have done a fresh restore through itunes and I am having the same problem. I am also only install cydia and that still doesnt help. Anyone have any suggestions for me? I need my phone!
    Still no luck. This sucks.
    What OS are you using? I had the same problem when I used Windows 7. I went to a buddy's house and did it on his computer (XP Sp2). Worked flawlessly.
    Samsung Galaxy SII (i777)
    iPhone 4 16GB

    Is there a slide for emergency call? Or just that page and nothing else?
    Your phone is either waiting to be activated or stuck in recovery mode.

    No slide for emergency, i guess it is struck on recovery mode.

    Ok problem solved, had to restore the 3.0 again and did the upgrade.

    Update to 3.0.1 with iTunes, then unlock/jailbreak using 3.0 firmware.

    ALL you have to do if stuck at reboot is to unplug the phone and plug it back in quickly. DO NOT do this at any other time.

    I just spent 5 restores trying to figure that out. Works perfectly.
