I, for the record, don't think Jailbreaking sucks, but I just wanted to profess my frustration. So, I decided to bite the bullet and finally try doing some jailbreaking. Being the smart (or so I thought) guy that I am, I wanted to first try everything on my old 1st Gen iPhone that I now use only for its iPod functionality, so that I could avoid breaking my 3g (This turns out to be a good move). I, for the record, have a BlackBook purchased in early 08. I tried using both QuickPwn and the Pwntool, but could never get the phone in DFU mode. I may have, somewhere along the way, tried to restore the Custom firmware from iTunes while in Recovery mode. Regardless, I'm now stuck in Recovery Mode, and the unit continues to reboot. I've tried using Ziphone and INdependence to get the unit out of Recovery Mode, but neither could find the phone. I've seen this question asked several times, but no answers... At least none that helped me.
