    I'm confused.......as usual......with all this recent posting of the new Macs or Itunes update not reading a DFU phone....It stops you from jailbreaking? Does it also stop you from using itunes to restore your iphone to normal after it was already jailbroken? or both? thanks

    Nope. Either use a USB hub or the software fix that has just started going around.

    After installing the fix, my peripherals stopped working and I had to reinstall Leopard. Others have had the problem.

    It is recomended not to use the software fix because of this issue.

    Well that is helpful, but doesn't really answer my questions. I just need to know those specific things, not how to get around it. Thanks!

    Um, yes it does but let's break this down a little more for you:

    I'm confused.......as usual......
    Yep.

    with all this recent posting of the new Macs or Itunes update not reading a DFU phone....It stops you from jailbreaking?
    Yes, because there's a kernel bug with USB that "disables" iTunes from recognizing a jailbroken iPhone in DFU mode.

    Does it also stop you from using itunes to restore your iphone to normal after it was already jailbroken?
    No. That would mean no one with an iPhone would be able to upgrade.

    Hope that clears it up a bit.
