    install itunes v8 (http://www.filehippo.com/download_itunes/) <-- all versions of itunes are there

    Update the iphone with iTunes and make sure it is activated!

    Uninstall iTunes v8

    Uninstall Apple Mobile Device Support (From Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel)

    Install itunes v7.7.*

    Download quickpwn with the correct 2.1 bundle inside it http://xpwn.co.uk/quickpwn-2.1-2g-3g.rar

    Run quickpwn...select your iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw or iPhone1,1_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw

    you can select cydia and installer and logos if you wish

    When it is finished the phone will reboot...Cydia and Installer will NOT be visible

    Download TotalCommander <-- http://xpwn.co.uk/tcmd704a.exe
    Download t-pot addon <-- http://xpwn.co.uk/T-PoT.1.1.zip

    Install TotalCommander and in the left pane navigate to T-PoT.1.1.zip and click on it. It will install t-pot automatically.

    Download the mobileinstallation patch <--

    Use Totalcommander to install patched mobileinstallation to /System/Library/PrivateFrameWorks/MobileInstallation.framework ... clickon the dropdown box [-\-] top left and select network neighbourhood then t-pot. Remeber to back up your original mobileinstallation first!

    Still in TotalCommander delete /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist

    Reboot the phone and all is good!


    Thanks to the #xpwn crew...

    according to the BossTeam it does indeed work but installed 3rd party apps wont show up on the springboard which makes the whole thing kinda pointless

    to fix the problem with the applications not showing up, you have to download the program from cydia called "delcache" and well...delete the cache and your apps are supposed to show up on springboard now :)

    So afterwards can you reinstall iTunes 8 or not?

    I have also heard that there are a few apps that don't work correctly, like Categories. Can you confirm?

    Instructions plainly say it's for Windows only at the moment. That's because Quickpwn works differently on a Mac and PC.

    I've just gone through this. I upgraded to 2.1 on my Mac and used a windows laptop with iTunes 7.7.0 to do the actual jailbreak.

    The following apps are working fine:

    BossPrefs
    5 Icon Dock
    Winterboard
    Analogue Charger
    SpoofApp
    DelCache
    and most importantly, Intelliscreen

    Does MX Tube and iReboot still work with JB 2.1?

    Can you go back to iTunes 8 when you're done with JailBreak?

    They sync and run, however I'm having trouble trying to sync 1password, Things and SplashID with their desktop counterparts.

    OpenSSH also doesn't seem to be working.

    The patched mobileinstallation is not an application. You need to replace the one on the iPhone with the patched version.

    Apps sync fine as long as u update back to itunes 8 after your done with the jailbreak. Iphone works as normal. However Cydia and Installer seem a little buggy still. Winterboard randomly act's up also and won't change theme without a reboot at times.

    Has anyone tried to see if the T-Zones hack works with this? Its the only thing holding me back right now from doing it. I might just have to be a guinea pig for it though, this is too tempting to pass up (got about a half hour left on all the downloads)
