i successfuly used quickpwn to jailbreak...i accidentally restored...im trying to jailbreak again but quickpwn doesn't recognize my 3g phone...the screen with 3 iPhones just sits there and nothing happens..what should i do?
i would bet my left nut on the fact that you are using the wrong version of quickpwn. when you accidentally restored you probably updated to 2.2.1, thereforee you need to download quickpwn 2.2.5 (you are using quickpwn 2.2 currently). download it from here:
i'm unfamiliar with fixing 3.0 issues as i decided to play it smart and wait for it to be officially released. i would imagine your problems have something to do with your baseband being upgraded. good luck
if pwnagetool works then yah use that. does the same thing, i actually prefer it because you can build a custom firmware and include applications like cycorder and winterboard in it so you don't have to install them once the jailbreak is complete.
when 3.0 is released officially, you can update but until the dev team releases a jailbreak, you will have to go stock. i personally will wait probably 2 weeks and see how everything pans out (but will probably sell my 3g and get the new iPhone).
as far as the jailbreak apps, they will have to be ported over to the 3.0 software, some take longer than others, only time can tell.
Pepe is correct - there is no official jailbreak for 3.0, but the unofficial one works fairly well. Icy is the app source instead of Cydia, and some jailbreak apps don't work yet. However, it's very easy to get rid of the jailbreak if you need to.:
I'll probably roll back the baseband on my current iPhone when I get the new one. FuzzyBand should work on baseband 40.26.8 by then (I know it works on up to 40.26.4 currently). I also have bootloader 5.08 or lower, so that shouldn't be a problem.
