    I've posted but got no love yet...

    I have tried to run quickpwn to jailbreak 2.1 and get to the point where it's time to click "go". I click, command window pops up and says "matching ipsw" and...

    "Quickpwn has encountered a problem and needs to close..."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am pissed! I've tried on 3 different Windows XP machines with the same result. I have googled and can't find an answer.

    Can anyone help??? PLEASE? What, if anything am I doing wrong? Yes, I'm running netframe 3.5 (the latest). Yes, I've stopped all Apple related processes.

    QuickPwn hasn't been updated for Windows for 2.1.

    If the IPSW you select is corrupted, QuickPwn will crash. Back when I QuickPwn'd my 2.0.2 install, it was crashing every time so I downloaded a new copy of the 2.0.2 IPSW and it worked fine. Try re-downloading your firmware IPSW.

    Hmm, I was able to quickpwn 2 other 2.1 iphones for my friend on my Macbook. They are as happy as they can be. But when I tried my iphone last night, the pwn finished. But after a Cydia update, I'm stunk on a spinning thingy at bootup. I waited 2 hours, still booting.

    I ended up flashing the entire iphone to factory default 2.1. Run quickpwn on a factory default 2.1. I'm still good.

    You need to wait for the Dev Team to release QuickPwn for 2.1 for Windows. It is currently only available for Mac.

    Add me to the waiting list.
