    alright so i already had my phone jailbroken and unlocked to tmobile but i wanted to upgrade to 2.2.1 and now i cant seem to jailbreak it. Quickpwn is stuck on the "quickpwn is about to run on your iphone" stage and it has been for a while. Please help! I need my phone back, I always seem to have problems jailbreaking and it's getting quite annoying I must admit. Please reply ASAP! thanks

    Is it a 2G or 3G phone? If it's the 3G then it's not going to unlock on the stock 2.2.1 firmware.

    the only problem is it never reaches step 13 and stays at " quickpwn is about to run on your iphone" i do not what is wrong this is like the 4th failed attempt.
    it never says "sending" or anything ugh

    OK, I had the same problem, it did not unlock the first time I tried. I found it was because the phone was already activated.

    What I had to do was DFU it back to an unactivated state on 2.2.1. Then I ran QuickPwn again and it unlocked it as well as jailbroke it.

    However, I use Windows. I think on a Mac you need to use pwnage tool, as in this tutorial:

    Hope that helps.

    If it's Windows, see my post 4 above yours.

    I'm confused by where exactly you have got to. Do you really need to be running three pretty much identical threads here on the same question?
