I downloaded the quickpwn for 2.2, I upgraded to 2.2 g3 and am using att so I don't need to unlock.
I also ug to 8.02 iTunes
I keep seeing people say restore first,

do I need to restore?
do I turn on iTunes when jbing?
Do I need the ipsw file also?
do I have to install installer or can i just add cydia?


Thanks

I'm on AT&T too. I just upgraded to 2.2 in iTunes, then closed iTunes.
Run Quickpwn, and just installed Cydia. Everything works PERFECT !
Quickpwn finds the 2.2 firmware, that iTunes downloaded, all on it's own.
Hope this helps.

So It sppears to have gotten stuck in recovery mode. Does it get stuck at that screen for a long time normally?

I had to resore in iTunes..

Any suggestions on what went wrong? How long does it take to connect in recovery mode before you hold down the home button?
