    Why not simply plug your iPhone into the iMac's aluminium (wired) keyboard? It is powered and will do the job with no issue related to DFU/10.5.6.
    Or don't you have one of those?

    ^Thanks you just saved me $11 :D
    That's why I've seen almost no desktop users complain about DFU

    The Dev Team has the solution for 10.5.6 users on their home page, it worked just great for me

    that did not work for me, any clues on how to do it with a MacBook?

    I did not know about the DFU issue with 10.5.6 and tryied to upgrade to 2.2.1 and now my iPhone is locked:mad::mad::mad:

    Any suggestions on how to do it?
    Do you guys think that trying it with my iBook that runs Tiger I´ll be able to unlock and jailbrake my iPhone again? I don´t care about the version that is running as long as I can use the Phone!

    Your phone will remain locked until the dev team releases an update to yellowsn0w sadly.


    I'm on a macbook and these intructions from their home page worked fine:


    Fixing DFU mode on 10.5.6

    As noted previously OS X 10.5.6 introduced a bug that affected the use of DFU mode. with some Macs. There have been previously published hacks and techniques to fix this, but here is another method that can be used to temporarily restore DFU functionality in order to use QuickPwn or PwnageTool.

    You will need an account with ADC (Apple Developer Connection) this is free and takes a few minutes to sign up, you should read the terms and conditions carefully and you should only sign up if you are thinking of developing applications in the future - http://developer.apple.com/mac/
    Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-315.4-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33” (yes, that is a “5” in 10.5.5 - this is a developer debug package of the USB kernel extension).
    Unplug non-vital USB equipment, such as external DVD writers, USB scanners, USB mass storage devices, at the most leave a Keyboard and Mouse connected.
    Install IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg from within the disk image
    Reboot your system!
    Perform necessary DFU activity with QuickPwn or PwnageTool.
    Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-327.4.0-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.6 Build 9G55”
    Intall IOUSBFamily-327.4.0.pkg from within the disk image
    Reboot your system!
    Reattach your USB peripherals.

    Well I tried that and it didn't work at all, same error 21.
    Though as mentioned in other post,

    I DID IT!!!!
    FIX IT FIX IT

    I used my iBook with
    - iTunes 8
    - Pwnage 2.2
    - iPhone original 2.2 ipsw
    - Restore iPhone to original 2.2
    - Built a custom 2.2
    - UL/JB with custom 2.2
    VOILA!

    Now is syncing again with my previous configuration!!!

    Thanks for the help everyone... I guess my mistake was that I was trying to UL/JB after restoring to 2.2.1

    BTW what´s new on 2.2.1, is it really worth it???
    POST...

    I'm on a WhiteBook guys and Dev team's process for 10.5.6 (^)worked perfect on my first attempt to jailbreak... It should just go smoothly without a hitch. Good luck.

    +1, I was so happy, I'd already restored my phone about 9 times until I finally stumbled upon the work around and it worked perfectly, such a happy occasion!!

    Fixing DFU mode on 10.5.6...

    Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-327.4.0-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.6 Build 9G55”

    Install IOUSBFamily-327.4.0.pkg from within the disk image

    Reboot your system!

    Reattach your USB peripherals.


    Why is it necessary to install the second .dmg file (“IOUSBFamily-327.4.0-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.6 Build 9G55”)?

    :cool:

    Because when you download the first file you're downgrading some software on your mac?

    When I didn't re-upgrade after jailbreaking my phone nothing that connected USB could be read, my macbook would just crash, once I re-upgraded everything worked fine


    Whats awesome is that I can downgrade and re-upgrade as many times as I want so I can JB all my friends phones :D

    Rusalka has got it right. The first .dmg is the 10.5.5 version of the USB recognition (or whatever it exactly alters) file and the second should be done after the jailbreak and replaces the 10.5.5 file with the previous 10.5.6 file so that your all back up to date... Again.

    ahhhhhhhhhhh danke ;)

    My mbp (2.4 Ghz) is not one of the new unibody models it is one cycle back in the mbp line.

    I will check if I even need the dfu fix with 10.5.6.
