I have gotten really good at restoring my iPhone..Not so good at jailbreak..

Is there anyone local who might be able to help me JB my iPhone?
I work in MT view, live in San Jose.
I will come to you if you can help me.

It freezes in the screen right before it has u hold down the home & power button part. I have checked and tried most suggestions except the one where he said choose run not save when dl quickpwn.

I have vista. I have some comments in a couple of other threads " freeze 3/4 of the way in jb process"

Are you running an iPhone on ATT? If you are, are you using quickpwn for windows? Is it your computer or iPhone that crashes? I think you are probably using the wrong quickpwn.... which firmware do you have installed on the iPhone?

Ok here is the run down

G3 2.1 jailbroke no problem from a vista laptop quickpwn2.1. A friend who works at a local tmobile phone store that does the JB/ UL to enable tmobile etc..

I UG to 2.2 I used the quickpwn from here http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1881

then it gets stuck at this screen.







The iPhone shows the iTunes icon on top w the usb cable below. then I restore and resync to get the phone working again.

One suggestion was to run from the site not save to my computer- but it is a zip file. not sure how to run from site so I saved it then unzipped. I also tried DL from the dev team site.

I dl 8.02 itune to my xp machine here at work... maybe I should try it from here?

It might be because you are running vista? i'm not sure though.. I was having trouble JB'ing my phone at first but then I restored my phone to "new phone" (started from fresh) and ran quickpwn 2.2 on my xp machine and it worked perfectly.. maybe try restoring "new" if you haven't already?

Smittylube, at the point you're getting stuck, quickpwn should have already created the modified/jailbroken firmware.

I know that with PwnageTool or WinPwn (the full versions of quickpwn) the newly created firmware is saved to your hardrive somewhere.

Take a peak around and see if quickpwn has stored the modified firmware somewhere on your drive. If it has, you should be able to complete the jailbreak process using iTunes.

If you find the jailbroken firmware, do this:

Put your phone into DFU mode. When iTunes recognizes the phone in recovery mode, hold down shift and click on the restore button. A popup window will appear asking you which firmware you want to restore from. Choose the jailbroken version.

Ok I will look around & see if I can find it. I also came on a comments about being sure iTunes is off -I found iTunes helper running in task manager. That may b the missing piece.

BTW Thanks 4 the help guys

Just so you know, if you update your firmware to 2.2 you wont be able to unlock the phone for T-Mobile. You might want to stick with 2.1 for a while?
