    I have an I phone that has been "restored to factory settings" I just want to jailbreak it so I can play around with it and use Wi-Fi. I downloaded quickpwn and the iPhone1,2_2.0.2_5C1_Restore file. After using quickpwn...the little pineapple does show up onto my phone, but it never fully turns on...the pineapple just stays there. So I have restored the phone through I-tunes 7.7 and done this process over about three times. Same problem. I have 2 questions.

    How do I know what firmware my phone is?

    Can someone please help me by sending an e-mail: gloveandco@yahoo.com ?

    I've been trying for two weeks now and I can't get it...I don't understand all this crap so if I get a million differen't responses I'm just going to be confused ...so i'd appreciate a person helping me complete this mess! THANKS!

    Thanks for the quick reply guys

    I gave it only five minutes...do I leave it alone even after the black command prompt screen disappears? I have a PC

    ?

    Do I need to restore the phone again or Should I just run through quickpwn again and leave it for 10-15 min just the way it is with this pineapple screen ?

    I wouldn't bother with restoring your phone again. Just let QuickPwn do its job and you should be good to go in 10-15 min. Here is a link for a QuickPwn tutorial:

    There is also a member on here that just posted a 2.1 jailbreak tutorial and there is some good information you can find in there.

    Hope this helps
