    I've update my orginal iPhone to firmware 2.2 and now it's re-locked... It's a AT&T phone and I am using a Rogers SIM in Canada.

    When I try restoring my phone using the pwnage tool for 2.2, I keep getting an "error 21" and the restore quits.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix? Downgrade? Use older version of iTunes?

    Please help!

    I could be wrong but I thought all updates will re-lock your phone. Above poster is correct, just use yellowsn0w to unlock 2.2.

    I tried restoring using the pwnage tool (2.2.1) and I keep getting "error 21".

    Am I missing something? Yellowsnow vs pwnage?

    Yellowsn0w is for the iPhone 3G

    Bootneuter is for the EDGE iPhone

    1. Upgrade iTunes to latest version.
    2. Upgrade iPhone to 2.2
    3. Use Quickpwn to jailbreak and unlock

    If you have a Mac and are running 10.5.6 then you'll need to do something else. Are you using a Mac?

    Right. The fix is simple:

    1) Do a DFU restore to stock 2.2 firmware.

    2) Build a custom firmware using PwnageTool. Enable hacktivation. I'd recommend BL 3.9. Enable unlocking as part of the neutering process.

    3) Do a DFU restore of the custom firmware.

    That should take care of it.

    Success.

    Ok, so I used quickpwn for windows and this work no problem.

    So... I had tried the full pwnage tool and this wouldn't work. Is quickpwn better or something? Also, windows vs mac could be the difference??

    This is the method that I described in my OP. While doing the restore of the custome firmware, I kept getting error 21. I wonder why?

    what's hacktivation?
