    I'm attempting to jailbreak my iPhone 3G on a Mac but am having no luck. When I get to the part when the phone goes into DFU mode my screen turns white and remains that way. The quickpwn app continues on as if there is no problem all the way through. The screen remains white for apprx. 10 minutes then shuts off. And my phone is back to normal after powering it on but not jailbroken.
    I've read of other people having this problem in other forums but I haven't found a solution. Can anyone help?

    if your mac is updated to OS X 10.5.6 the problem you are running into is that the mac will not recognize it in DFU mode and thereforee cannot be rebooted in its jailbroken state. there is a fix for this somewhere on here, but if you have another computer to jailbreak with i would recommend doing that for the time being.

    No I'm running 10.4.11 and my iTunes and iPhone are proper firmwares as well. My wife has a mac at work I may have to use.

    When jailbreaking on a PC does it have to have iTunes and does my phone have to be synced with the PC or can I simply plug my iPhone in download quickpwn and jailbreak?

    Nope. It should be fine, now you can just sync it with your Mac. I had the same problem trying to jailbreak on my new MacBook, it wouldn't go into DFU mode. So, I jailbroke it on my PC and then sync'd it with my Mac.

    iPhone white screen

    When you guys took your iPhones to the store do they check warranties or serial numbers? I am gonna buy mine from ebay and I wanna take it in instead of paying 3x the amount it cost to buy the phone

    Try this:

    Set your phone to DFU-mode and then connect it to your computer. Open iTunes and restore. Now try to jailbreak it again.

    I had some problems myself with jailbreaking a couple days ago (upgraded to 2.2.1), so i set i to DFU-mode and restored it again and it worked.

    Not sure this will work, but it's worth a try i guess.
