    did you use quickpwn or pwnagetool? don't upgrade to 2.2.1 just use pwnagetool and make a custom 2.2 firmware put your phone in dfu mode by holding down the power and home button then letting go of power button and holding home button untill itunes tells you it has detected you phone. Then hit option restore and pick the firmware you made and enjoy

    Default This may help...

    I just jailbroke mine over the weekend. Mine got stuck at that logo and vibrated occasionally as well. What had happened was that iTunes had locked up. What I did was I force quit iTunes and did not reopening it. I left my iphone plugged of course and just let quickpwn continue to do whatever it was doing. Literally within 5 seconds the jailbreaking process completed. I think that having iTunes connected messes with it in some way. I hope that helps, I was freaking out too thinking I had bricked it.
