    First of all, get 2.2 now.

    Second, shut your iPhone off. Once off, hold Power and Home for ten seconds. At ten seconds, release Power and keep holding Home for another ten seconds. Release and you'll be in DFU mode. Now hold Option (Control, I THINK, for Windows) and click Restore and choose the firmware 2.2 that you modified with PwnageTool to restore to that. Voila.

    yea you are
    try using pwnage tool (or winpwn)

    and dont get 2.2 if you ever want an unlock in the future, it uses a different baseband than 2.1 and they havn't even unlocked 2.x
    they have a way of updating to 2.2 without changing the baseband
    explore there for possible solutions to your problem
