    First time with this issue. I updated my iPhone 3G to 2.2 software from a jailbroken (with quickpwn on windows) 2.1 install. Now whenever I jailbreak the 2.2 software (also with quickpwn on windows) the phone never boots, but just sits at the bootup screen with the apple logo, vibrates 4 times, then after a while white-screens and reboots itself requiring me to have to do a full restore from a backup in iTunes. I have AT&T and I don't need any baseband modifications. What am I doing wrong? Is there any way I can get 2.2 successfully jailbroken? Will I need to start completely clean and setup the iPhone as a new device? Thanks in advance for anyone's insight.

    Brief specs:
    iPhone 3G on US AT&T
    Windows XP SP3 with the latest version of iTunes
    Quickpwn 2.2

    basically the same thing worked for me... it wouldn't work with all my apps installed. So i did a restore, then jailbroke and it worked.

    Same thing happened to me. After upgrading to 2.2, I noticed that some of the jailbreak features were available (numeric battery status in top right corner). When using QuickPwn, I figured I would have this issue, as this is the same type of issue you can have with restoring a jailbreak backup.
