    I'm assuming this a dumb question, but, we cant jailbreak (not unlock), 3.0 with a previous version of quickpwn right? I've already updated to the official 3.0, probably should have waited, i was an xgps user.. i've heard the only way to go "back" is to put itunes 8.1 or previous back on and go from there?

    Has anyone heard an eta? Has anyone heard an ETA until the appstore has a real GPS utility for non-jailbroken phones?

    Thanks

    TomTom is coming out with an app, but it will not be free.

    I suspect XGPS will always have a place....

    Hope for a release today.
    Nobody else knows when, as the Dev Team haven't announced an ETA yet.

    Well if not outrageously expensive, i'd probably try it, as long as its turn by turn.

    Dummy me, updates to 3.0, 1 day before a trip, now without jailbroken and xgps, i feel naked to have to rely on google maps and no turn by turn.

    Has anyone downgraded back to 2.2x? I do have a backup from a few weeks ago, if it werent hard to do, i think i'd revert back and restore the backup.. then i'd restore the v3.0 backup once the jailbroken quickpwn is out.

    Actually it would seem, if you have a mac, you can use pwnagetool 3.0 to do the jailbreak right now..

    Or download a custom ispw and install it via itunes.. which is what i've done as of now.. (my friend used same file and it worked).

    Which custom file did you use? I used one on these forums and got 1604.

    if someone supplies you with a pwned .ipsw file for 3.0, you should be able to restore using it, granted you know how to place your iPhone into DFU mode and load a custom .ipsw file.

    Try skydrive from microsoft.. all you need is a windows live account, then you just give out the link to the file?

    I forget how to get out of DFU mode...

    to get out of DFU, I believe you need to hard reset the phone, while it is unplugged from your Computer-to-iPhone usb cable. I am currently uploading my custom .ipsw file to megaupload, should be about 8 minutes.

    What carrier are you with?

    I'm with verizon..

    I did try doing a hold of home and power button, it reboots, but back to the power cable itunes logo dfu mode thing...

    I'll wait for your file i guess first :)

    So... why did you get an iPhone? You can't use it with Verizon.

    I just turned it on, thanks for letting me know and thanks for the link :)

    You guys rock.

    If this fails, i will try pwnage though, will post results in either case.

    In the meantime i wanted to just try the standard restore on the iphone to get it out of DFU mode.. it says an unknown error has occurred...

    I'm at a loss here..

    EDIT.. i then tried a restore, pointing it to the original apple ispw... it appears to be progressing.. back to where i was anyway.

    Unfortunately this one didnt work for me either..

    I'm on vista x64 ultimate with sp2.

    I tried it on different boxes too.
