well i upgraded to 2.1 today and used pwnage to jailbreak my 3g iPhone. i followed the tutorial on hackthatphone and got an error message when i go to load the custom firmware onto my phone. tried it 3 or 4 times and kept getting the same thing. i've jailbroken countless times before and this is the only time i've had an issue. i'm headed off to work right now so i don't have time to troubleshoot it. i'll figure it out tomorrow i'm sure but just wondering if anyone else had issues like this.

Try creating another IPSW. Sometimes you'll just get a bad file.

tried 3 more times, the last time it seemed to work and kicked into restore mode and said my phone would be recognized in iTunes but never was. unplugged it like 5 different times, finally turned it off and on about 6 times and then plugged it in and i was able to get it to recognize it. so now i have no idea why or how it worked after this many times. thanks for ALL the help lol.
