    Um... yea... I was going through the quick pawn doing the hold power/home and it didn't work. itunes throwed up a message, dont remember what it was, then unhooked the phone and now the sob wont turn back on. If I plug it up to the computer nothing happens. I'm using a mac 10.5.5 I really need help here.

    Did you try the home & power button down together for about 7 seconds?

    Impt thing is to stay on 10.5.5 and not upgrade to 10.5.6 --> this way u can enter DFU mode via the iPhone connect to itunes.

    recommend that u do a full restore on itunes using stock 2.2, then attempt a jailbreak using quickpwn for simplicity's sake. thereafter, if u want to upgrade to 10.5.6 make sure u replace the kext's otherwise u may experience "recognition" issues when plugged in to itunes for backing up / syncing.

    OK. got it fixed. I held the home and power down. I should have tried that at first but i just freaked out when it wouldn't come back on. I'm gonna give it another try.

    u should be in DFU mode for itunes to detect and do a clean restore to 2.2, only then do u use quickpwn (after stock restore to 2.2) to jailbreak. the last page u should see should be the "iHaz" page of the quickpwn prog.

    dont really understand what u mean by quick quickpwn after DFU. that sounds a little jumbled up, steps wise.

    well the iphone isn't in dfu mode when i stat everything. I just run quick pawn and go that way. The last page i'm seeing is the "your in dfu mode, open itunes for new firmware" I have never seen the "IHAZ success screen"

    Ok.. .here are the steps im taking.


    with the ipone powered up as usual... I run quick pawn.

    I get to the "building IPSW" screen put in my uid and pw and go

    then It says "has your phone been pawned before" I click NO

    Then It takes me to a series of steps then I plug in the phone, turn off the phone, hold the button sequence then it says i'm in dfu mode.

    Then I get "close pwnage tool the put iphone in recovery mode, start itunes and restore custom firmware bundle..

    And thats it... I get nothing after that. phone is off, hooked up, itunes doesn't recognize the phone is hooked up or nothing. I am getting the message "an ipod is detected, but couldn't be identified properly"

    Now what?

    The more I read I guess I should mention this. This is a new macbook. It is the aluminum body and all. It says it version 10.5.5 though. Dont know if it makes a difference.

    You did close iTunes before you began the Jailbreak yes? Sometimes it's not safe to run a jailbreak with iTunes open.

    I've tried it both ways. I'm thinking it just isn't recognized when it is in dfu mode. But I thought that was only 10.5.6.

    You need a USB hub. And don't jailbreak unless you really need something from it.
