    I'm having difficulty. I upgraded to 2.0.1 and ran Pwnage 2.0.2. I loaded up a few apps and kept getting frozen at the "return to cydia" button after the load was complete. At some point I couldn't unfreeze it. (Pineapple log 24/7).
    I restored, re-pwned, and all looked fine till I updated two official apps. Locked up again.

    The only way I see how to get out of being frozen is to hold down both buttons for a while then release. This gives me a Pineapple that sits there. My phone is toast again.

    I don't hear of any reports like this so I can't imagine what I'm doing wrong. I guess I'll blow out my phone again and keep trying.

    The only thing that makes sense is a corrupt .ipsw I would try to re-install pwnage and / or re-download the origial 2.0.1 ipsw Might be worth going about things in expert mode and disabling the custom logo just in case. Is it an AT&T sim / contract. If so disable the activation.

    Yea, I did everything a few times over again. It seems to be working now. I "think". It feels very precarious to me.
    Tethering is a complete failure so I'm trying the 'free' method.

    I've messed around with our phones since initial launch but never encountered such problems (on 2 phones) as I had today (visions of taking it to the Apple store, etc.). Scarey. But I think it's working. Hopeing for updates soon.
