    Hey, I've had an iPhone since December. Was always tempted to jailbreak but never did and because I was on 3.1.3 so I never could.
    Couple of days ago I find Spirit, and it jailbreaks everything so I give it a go.
    Everything is going fine, downloaded everything alright, everything working.

    Until yesterday I plug it into iTunes and I get this message,
    "iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000022)"

    I have looked through many forums and I cannot find a solution to this.
    (I'm on a Mac as well, as I've noticed a lot are mainly about Windows.)

    Another thing is that it is showing up in iPhoto.
    And even in Spirit, but when I try to Jailbreak again I get this message,
    "Spirit encountered an unexpected error (c6)."

    I'm usually alright with things like this and find a way, but this has really got me stuck.

    Any help will be great, thanks.
    Spencer.

    Turn your phone off. Have iTunes on with the USB connected to the computer port, but not to the iPhone. Hold the home button and connect to the USB. See if your phone is recognized and then restore. After restoring try Spirit again.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Just tried that a few times and still getting the same thing.

    What is the best way for me to restore it without iTunes?

    You can't restore without iTunes. BTW, there's no use trying Spirit now, since it requires a working phone to jailbreak. Try DFU mode (see my sig).
