    it is stuck on the "quickpwn is about to run on your iphone" and the app wont close it is pissing me off i have no phone now and i need unlocked but this stupid program won't work. Why is it not progressing to the "sending" stage? i need help and i need it now. Is anyone willing to do it for me? I am in the SFV valley and i need help desperately.

    Go to this link and read it. Due to an update on your Mac you have to download and install something..which is linked on this page.

    Afterwards it WILL work. I just got done doing an original iPhone and a iPhone 3G.

    P.S. if you want to save time just scroll down to where it says "Fixing the DFU bug" and read that.

    Your iPhone has to already be on 2.2.1 firmware to be able to be unlocked using QuickPwn.. so make sure that you update your iPhone first through iTunes, don't worry I did it to a 2G iPhone yesterday and it has no service or carrier and it updated.. I then JailBroke it and then unlocked it.
