    I am trying to JB my 3G 2.2 and as i was doing the QuickPwn, I was up to the point where it asks to hold the home button, then the home+power and then the hold alone. Now the screen on my iPhone is black and QuickPwn says "Preparing your device - please follow the instructions above"..

    I dont know what to do, Please help, im getting a wee bit nervous here.

    haahah this is funny because I had the exact same problem yesterday.
    Heres what I did, installed .net framework 3.5, went on the PRIMARY account, turned terminal service to automatic, and REdownloaded quickpwn.

    ended up working.
    If that doesn't work your best bet is to use another computer.

    This is pretty funny because I posted a thread just like this today lol

    I have no idea what .net frameowkr 3.5 and all that is.

    After waiting about 30 min i unplugged the USB and restarted the phone (i was scared that it wouldnt). Installed a different version of QuickPwn and it ended up working.

    Yes hahaha for some reason, redownloading quickpwn always works.
    remember bud, google is our friend. its how i found the solution to my problem, and it would explain what the .net framework is.

    glad to see you've escaped jail :D
