    Ok so I have an iPhone3G that is Jailbroken with 2.2 running 2.2 firmware. My question is how do I go about upgrading to firmware 2.2.1 with jailbreak 2.2.1? I'm currently d/l the 2.2.1 firmware from apple. Do I restore with that firmware and then run the new quickpwn? Will this restore the iPhone from the latest backup?

    If you searched the forums, which is what you should have done before posting, you would have found this.

    You restore via iTunes, upgrade, then jailbreak. You can then restore any of your settings from previous iTunes syncs.

    Try a reset by holding down both the power button and home key for about 15 seconds or until you see the apple logo in the middle of the phone.

    I'm having an issue and not sure if anyone else is having the same one... I've restored my iPhone and downloaded the latest quickpwn, I go through the usual routine but after I hold down the power/home button and let go of the power button, it goes to the "quickpwn is about to run on your iPhone 3g" page but it just keeps the loading circle thingy going, and the status bar stays empty. I've tried it twice and it keeps happening.

    Any ideas?

    Your new Mac wont let you put your iPhone into DFU, so jailbreaking can't be done. Use a powered USB Hub to fix the issue.

    I think he knows how to jailbreak... It's a pretty self-explanatory process.
