Unlocking Orginal iPhone

If you want to unlock your ORIGINAL iPhone, “iPhone 1,1”, what is colloquially called “2g” by many, an effective process seems to be:
(I don’t care about iPhone 3G,3GS,4,etc, since I will never have one).

Google for 3.1.2 firmware and download
Google for 3.9 and 4.6 boot loaders and download
Google for redsn0w 0.9.4 (not newer) and download
Put phone in DFU mode
Start iTunes, accept fact that phone is in “restore” mode
left-shift (apple computer alt) and click restore and select 3.1.2 load you downloaded
wait really long time for everthing to finish (let’s say 20 minutes)
run redsn0w and apply to 3.1.2 file
follow instructions, including waiting a really long time for stuff
upon reboot open Cydia, let it update, wait really long time
install SSH (just in case things go awry
install bootneuter choose 4.6, neuter, unlock
power off, install alternative SIM (if you hadn’t already)

There are more complete published procedures search the web

Ignore blackra1n, sn0wbreeze, etc redsn0w works and is easiest
