QuickPWN 2.2 and OS X 10.5.6

I had the hardest time using QuickPWN for my 2G iPhone with my 2008 Macbook Pro and OS X 10.5.6
Here is what happened and solution (hope it helps someone because it caused me a full day of searching the internet for solutions!)

FYI: My iPhone was originally jailbroken by ZiPhone and had version 1.1.4

THE PROBLEM:
1: I synced my iPhone in iTunes (version 7.7) for backup my calendar, contacts, photos, etc
2: Installed iTunes 8.0.2
3: Updated iPhone to 2.2
4: Downloaded QuickPWN 2.2
5: All went well until I got to the IPWS (QuickPWN is about to run on your iPhone) and it froze my iPhone and Mac (could not turn off Mac because QuickPWN blocked it...I had to hold down the power button on the Mac to turn it off!).
6: I thought...I BROKE IT!!

THE SOLUTION:
1: For me, the hub on the Mac did not work!...I had to dig out my old PC Windows laptop (running XP)
2: Downloaded iTunes 8.0.2
3: Downloaded QuickPWN 2.2 for Windows
4: Started QuickPWN and it asked for Firmware 2.2 of iPhone (download here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/0...ownload-links/
5: It asked if I wanted to unlock iPhone (yes!)
6: Then asked for Bootloader v3.9 (download here: http://rapidshare.com/files/175468958/bl-39.bin
7: Asked for Bootloader v4.6 (download here: http://rapidshare.com/files/175469406/bl-46.bin
8: Quickpwn will ask to hold down the home and power keys...just follow the on screen directions (please note: this QuickPWN Windows process is slightly different then the Mac).
9: QuickPWN worked its magic and the iPhone works GREAT!!
10: I went back to the Mac and restored all my old iPhone information through iTunes...perfect!! Contacts, text messages, etc is all there!

That's it! Good luck...the iPhone works great now!! Thanks Dev-Team

Or you could just follow this and continue to use your mac.

Also I saw that you posted the exact same thing in another thread. Please don't double post!
