Anyone know if it's coming soon, I want to J-Break it again.

I know it takes time and appreciate the work they are doing, not being an ******* but wondering how much longer it may be.

Appreciate it.

Yes there is. if you have had your phone pwned before just download a custom firmware and and plug phone in hit shift+restore choose firmware and boom done you got 2.1

obviously you did zero research before posting your first post. This does not work.

You can follow these instructions for a Windows Jailbreak:

http://www.quickpwn.com/2008/09/jailbreak-iphone-21.html

I just did it this morning and as long as you follow the instructions to the letter, it works great.
Just saw your post! Going to do this now...thnx for the confirmation that it does, in fact, work for us windows (handicapped) users!

Thanks a million and it looks easy enough..just several steps with assorted downloads, that's all. I'll see you in an hour or so when it's done!:laugh2::laugh2:

It works great. I did it this morning and have been setting up jailbreak apps all day now with no issues.

Bossprefs, Categories, OpenSSH, Tunewiki, Flashlight... all my appstore apps... everything is working just fine.

Well, there are reports that the retrograde to iTunes 7.7 isn't really necessary. Considering that iTunes isn't really involved in the Quickpwn process at all (to my knowledge... other than originally getting the stock 2.1 on your phone), I don't see why you need to downgrade.

But yeah, once I did the pwn, I updated to 8.0 again and I'm good as gold now.

I hear ya... I'm just beside myself with joy right now. I wish I had saved my custom summerboard theme, though! Oh well, I got a ton of new apps now anyway, so time to build it again...

You should browse to a legit 2.1 firmware from Apple (if you've already upgraded through iTunes, you should find the FW file in c:/documents and settings/[user]/application data/Apple computer/iTunes/iPhone software updates.

If the firmware you select isn't compatible, it will just sit there and do nothing. If you select the proper one, you will get a green checkmark and will be able to proceed...
