Just another update for anyone who may find this thread later:
First I followed jayman30's example and uninstalled all 3rd-part apps from my iPod Touch (1st Gen).
Then I carefully looked at the official release of QuickPwn/PwnageTool 2.2, where they seemed to feel that a 1st Gen iPod Touch should be able to be unlocked using either QuickPwn or PwnageTool.
Same thing happened as always: I run the program and everything goes fine until it's in DFU mode and the firmware is being sent across via a progress bar, at which point it hangs. I force-quit QuickPwn after a few minutes of nothing happening, and the iPod hasn't been affected at all.
Same thing as always: I create a new .ipsw file, enter DFU mode, option-click "restore" on the iPod in iTunes, select my new .ipsw file, it begins to extract, then error 21.
-The same problem is affecting PwnageTool and QuickPwn, but they manifest themselves differently.

I had my firmware 2.1 jailbroken then watching all my mates jailbreak on 2.2.1 I wanted to upgrade.

Man, I wish I had good news for you. I gave up, and have just been using the locked Apple firmware.
My wife has a 1st gen iPhone, and when I tried to unlock it I was shocked that it was easy, fast, and everything went as planned. My guess is that there's a problem in the dev. team's unlocked iPod Touch firmware. But who knows?
Please update the thread if you find anything out, will ya? Thx.

drome_mc and others, just reading this about the way your iphone hangs after trying to use quickpwn and pwnage tool... did you ever sort this out?
i've got a first gen iphone which had been jailbroken a while ago and running 1.1.4 or something, then i upgraded the firmware with itunes to 2.2.1, then tried to use quickpwn and it just hung there when it was trying to install the ipsw... then i tried to use pwnage tool and itunes would not recognize the iphone in dfu state. now it is out of dfu state but it only has a state of apple logo/boot up or the screen which shows the usb connecting to itunes logo. cannot turn it off and i get an error when i try to legitimately restore it in itunes.
where you able to do anything to solve these issues?
