I cannot get quickpwn 2.1 to work!!! HELP!!!!!!
Ok so i plug in my iphone 3g. I already have firmware 2.1
I download quickpwn 2.1 and also the 2.1 firmware to my desktop.
I run quickpwn. it goes through the steps and asks me to browse for the firmware. I choose the one i downloaded to my desktop.
Asks me to make sure my iphone is plugged in.
Then it goes to the next screen which says "wait for your iphone to connect in recovery mode.
My iphone shows the apple logo for like 2 seconds, then shows the usb cable and the itunes logo and just sits there. The install never gets past that. Ive waited for 20 minutes.
What the hell am i doing wrong?

You have to put the phone in DFU mode. Sounds like you are skipping that step all together. It should tell you to hold down the power button along with the home button for a period of time and then to release the power button, etc...

Has anyone found a fix to this yet?
I've had the same problem and have been trying to re-pwn my 2g phone on 2.0.2FW.
I've DFU'ed it, and successfully restored it using itunes 8.1.
But when I come to using QuickPwn, it gets up to the stage where you are about to be asked to press the home and power buttons in sequence...only it doesn't!#
You can see the steps greyed out, and the status at the top saying "wait for your iphone to connect in recovery mode..."
If anything, it resets the iphone into DFU mode again (itunes logo and cable).
I read on another forum, that it could be the mobileinstallation/apps hack that has caused this but all I did there was put a new mobileinstallation file and rename the old file to .bak and add a couple of new folders. The poster did say the mobileinstallation file might not be compatible. But doesn't DFU get rid of all that?
I've tried this a couple of dozen times, for the past two days. I'm getting desperate. No phone, no ipod...ARrrggh! Can anyone help?

I've managed to re-Pwn it! The problem seems to have been with my computer, I say that because I reinstalled itunes8.1/7.5 several times but still couldn't re-pwn my phone.
In the end, I just tried it on someone else's computer. The new computer had Vista, where as mine was XP, but I doubt that was the reason. I think I must have had some legacy iTunes thread running in a way that stopped Pwn from working.

Yeah, I'm having a similar problem: in Mac 10.4.11, QuickPwn hangs at step 8 in the tutorial, when there's a progress bar and a dialog saying "Sending WTF...."
The last entry in the log says "2008-11-20 03:05:04 - Successfully built Quickpwn Ramdisk file." but its been 8 hours since then. I'm paranoid and don't want to unplug my 1st gen iPod touch.
Any help, please??!
