    I have an original 8G Iphone running 1.1.4 Firmwire something has gone wrong to where itunes can no longer reconigze it so i am pretty sure im going to have to restore.

    What firmwire should i restore to, and what program is the ABSOLUTE easiest and fastest way to jailbreak it. I dont have much time to spend on it due to work and school so im looking for the fastest easiest way. Any help will be thanked

    OK nothing is working for me i have tried QuickPwn and WinPwn..

    Something got messed up where i couldnt get my iphone out of recovery mode so i restored using Itunes to 2.0.2 and its sitting at the activation screen.

    I tried using the new winpwn beta version but it gave me an error telling me the program needed to shut down now im stuck with an iphone at the activation screen and i have no idea what to do...

    When i used QuickPwn it went through all the steps fine got it into dfu mode and did the countdown all that stuff but its stuck at the spinning cog with hte pineapple and stays there i waited like 30 minutes before i decided to restart it and it went straight back into dfu mode


    HELP ME

    You know, you could of just restored and used 1.1.4, and then ZiPhone'd it..


    Try plugging in the iPhone to your computer.
    Turn off the iPhone. Close itunes once iTunes sees the iPhone. Close quickpwn or whatever your using.
    Hold the home button and power button until the apple logo appears on the iphone, then let go of the power button while holding onto the home button.
    Download iPhone firmware 2.2 and update to that, and just wait for a jailbreak release, so you can at least use your phone for now.

    Ok well i figured out how to get it working on 2.0.2 except i am having 2 problems.. First no sound at all it vibrates but no sound. Secound When i go to text it freezes for a second or 2 then allowes me to text..


    and nick i would have done that if i actually had hte contract with ATT and didnt have to activate and unlock

    Restore your phone through iTunes with the latest firmware. Go to dev team's website and download the QuickPwn. Follow the exact direction listed, and all should work fine.

    If you continue to run into issues, post as much details as possible on the issue, so people can better assist you on this forum.

    There is only one way to jailbreak at 2.2...

    If you are having such tough time reading instructions, perhaps you should ask someone else to do it. It is very simple and straight out of box...
