Iphone 2.0 Firmware installed...Iphone locked

OK..I know working on my iphone while I'm half asleeo wasn't a great idea !
I inadvertadly clicked on upgrade to 2.0 in Itunes and my unlocked 8Gb iphone updated from 1.1.4. to the newest 2.0 version. Now I've got an Aple brick for a phone....
I've checked the net for unlocking programs for this version and I've found one Winpwg that according to all the chatter aledgedly unlocks the phone.
I've installed the program, ran it and all I can gert out of it to put my iphone into emergency calls only...
Any you guys either know a way I can put back my iphone on 1.1.4 or how to overcome this issue on 2.0.

2. hold "shift" key then click restore, a firmware will be ask so locate the firmware file you download then tick ok. it will automatically do the process so just wait until it's done.

Vibration problem

This might work.  It had worked for mine and 3 of my friend's iPhone but sad to say could not do it for my wife's iPhone.  I guessed because she dropped her and we did not drop our.  It is still make a little small rattling vibration one or two day and pretty much it had died on her now.  Anyway, back to a solution.  I called this 'kungfu chop cho' .  Just hold your iPhone like you are holding a chopping knife or like hold a hammer.  Just chop chop on to something soft with the 2 bottom corners of the iPhone.  That is it!  This should work and if it does not then hardware proble.  Send it in and get it rreplace.  
Good luck to all from Vietnam.
