I am not a Macintosh/Apple fan, I use Windows/Linux/Android. However, I bought an iPhone 3G 16GB for $50 from a friend. I've Jailbroken it but now I face two problems. Cydia tells me that there are some Essential Updates to download and install but when I confirm the installation none of the files download successfully. I get an error for each one then I'm taken back to the Cydia main page. Secondly, now that I'm Jailbroken, when I plug in my iPhone and open iTunes it asks me to Setup as New iPhone or Restore from Previous Backup, until I choose one of these options I can't sync my iPhone to my PC and/or copy music over etc. Why? How can I get by this? After these problems are resolved I need to unlock the iPhone but I can't move forward until the Cydia issues are fixed... Help!!! PAinguIN
