Just get yourself a MAC :D

I just pwned 2.1! Got worried because when I went into DFU mode iTunes said it didn't recognize my phone and wouldn't restore.. Oh snap! But I killed iTunes, reopened it, and it restored the Jailbreak firmware just fine. Restoring my data now!

I have only used quickpwn on the PC, and I liked that it does not require iTunes as part of its process. It was fast and painles... and I can't wait for the new version to be made available!

I have become accustomed to using WinSCP to modify my phone's system sounds. If Apple would create an improved sounds settings page that lets you choose between custom system sounds - and then let people sell system sound files in the appstore - my need for jailbreaking might be greatly diminished.

Just jailbroke my 3G on 2.1 . Everything went well. Installed all my apps via Cydia, no problems. Upgraded my iTunes to 8.0 (on my PC where all my music is stored) .Rebooted phone, and I am stuck on the silver Apple logo,and the phone is giving two short vibrations every 10 seconds or so.Been like that for 10 minutes or so.

Phone seems to switch itself off every five mins or so, then straight back onto the silver Apple logo.

Dusted off my iBook G4 and used Quickpwn for my 2G and Pwnage Tool for my 3G, and worked great. As usual. =)

are you speaking in relation to my jailbroken apps or the app store apps?

Im going to try it again, hopefully it will work. I hate the look of the stock icons and I miss categories.

I have a question? Did they disable back ups in iTunes? After I pwned my phone I haven't seen it back up yet. It might be that I have been connecting it in a short amount of time but I haven't seen it once. Does anyone know?
