Ok guys I believe that I would like to do this (little scared). I have a windows pc here at work and a MacBook Pro (silver). Is there one better than the other? I have a iPhone 3G 16g, 2.2.

Ok unplugged iPhone, stopped quickpwn and got phone to turn back on. I tried to start from the top following jailbreak in sticky. Everytime I get to step 10 letting quickpwn do its magic there is not any progress and iPhone seems to turn off. Any suggestions?

Ok tried on pc and nothing. I got the instruction at this site under sticky. I have 3g iPhone 16g 2.2 firmware. I downloaded quickpwn from stick site. Everything goes ok. I turn off phone. Hold power & home and the phone turns off then quickpwn runs but no progress then I have to do a force quit on the mac. This is as far as I get, have tried about 7 times. I have got to be doing something wrong. Driving me crazy!

You don't need to follow a tutorial. Just follow QuickPWN. It's all plain and simple. Just run the app, and follow what it says.

Plus, do it on Windows. If you are using Vista make sure you run it with administrator privileges. Just CAREFULLY read through the key combinations that QuickPWN asks you to do and do them WHEN it tells you to.

Ok, I tried to jailbreak on work windows pc. Downloaded the quickpwn 2.2 and hooked up iPhone and it wants me to browse for the correct IPSW. I updated my firmware to 2.2 on the Mac. So were do I get this info?

Thank you drumthrasher. Please forgive my impatience and ignorance. Your download worked great. No all I have to do is figure out all of these new cycia apps. Thanks again. I have got a lot to learn about this iPhone.
