      Ok, i think i screwed up big time. Here's what happen.

      Was on JB 2.1. All was working fine. Then came the urge to upgrade to JB 2.2
      So I followed the forum and did exactly as guided.
      I d/l the Pwnage Tool 2.2 and the Apple Firmware 2.2(direct from Apple)
      Then I ran Pwnage Tool 2.2 and create custom firmware. When all had been done, I see my phone had been upgraded to V2.2 with Cydia installed. But when I launched Cydia, it asked me what category I belong to (the initial start-up screen). I chose USER (or any other option), it will just close itself. Tried many time but still unable to launch.

      Read the forum again. Saw someone said to upgrade using iTune (which was bad) before upgrading to custom firmware. So I did. When restoring, I got a msg that says restore fail. An error has occured. Tried many time too.

      Went back to the forum main page and re-read everything all over again. Found out if I were to upgrade via iTune, the baseband just got upgraded. DAMN!!!!!!! I think i'm screwed BIG TIME.

      So i tried to re-do everything all over again. Still getting an error that my iPhone cannot be restored (this is when choosing custom firmware).

      Now I'm trying to restore Apple original firmware V2.2 since all JB 2.2 have failed for my iPhone.

      Can anyone tell me what went wrong and is there a way to JB it again with V2.2? Please please please...help me.

      Thank you.

      iphone 2G @ 2.1 unlocked and jailbroken w/windows

      1-download quickpwn 2.2 for windows
      make sure you also have the 3 and 4 bootloader files (mmi download page)
      2-Sync and backup your iphone
      3-Update your itunes to 8.0.2 (reboot required)
      4-Open itunes, click restore when asked click "donwload and install" for 2.2 software (YES STRAIGHT FROM ITUNES)
      5-Let roll till you get the message: cannot activate ur phone, non-approved sim.
      6-Launch quickpwn (Windows version, macos version it seems to have issues with DFU mode)
      7-Follow the instructions, you'll need to call up the firmware Itunes downloaded, mine found it in the default location. you need to call your bootloader files, check the box for unlock, and you may want cydia and installer.
      8-Follow the steps as it says.
      9-Once it finishied go back to itunes and restore from the backup
      10-sync back all your stuff and Voila.

      tada!
      IF you do just what this mini guide says you'll get 2G Iphone, unlocked and jailbroken.

      Just as it is...

      lol, me too i looked on youtube to find out how:

      you must type in a city name, then click the little orange icon next to it.

      try typing "hollywood, ca" then search. click the icon on the pin. its dumb but the only way to get to it is through there...

      If you have a 3g & dont want to upgrade your baseband for a potential software unlock in the future, go to page 20 in this thread & get the file "tattoojack" has listed... Downloaded it, backed up my phone, pressed shift then restore, found the custom 2.2 ipsw, clicked on it & i am now running 2.2 on a 16g 3g jailbroken/unlcoked w/ isim hardware unlock. Tattoojack has always known his sh*t ~but I am shouting him out for the being the motherf*ckin man tonight! Thanks tattoojack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      well, i took the plunge. i've been holding out with 1.1.4 for long enough. i'm on tmobile with tzones. i have a new macbook, which kicks *** at everything accept the unlock, luckily i kept my ibook long enough to run pwnage with it.

      i followed the iclarified tutorial for 2G iphones and now am watching itunes do its thing.

      the phone is 'restoring the iPhone firmware' as i type! the time indicator is a nice touch! wait, it restarted and bootneuter has taken over. bootloader was succesfully flashed, now the baseband is is being flashed. baseband flashed! restarting again on its own. everything seems to have worked. i've got cydia, installer and winterboard! as well as the appstore for the first time.

      itunes is telling me another phone (mine) was on this computer and if i want to use its contacts, etc. yes. itunes is syncing with the phone. it's taking quite a while, wow. okay, it's done and all my contacts and SMS are still there. nice.

      cydia launched no problem. downloading tzones hack now... it worked like a charm, internet over edge is working! nice, i like the google bar too!

      okay, that's my story. everything is solid.

      Same here. At 5pm yesterday I am still with 100% off the hook with my PC, at 10pm it was only 30%.

      Gotta get hold of my spare battery power station in my pocket to be safe.

      SO wut is the point of the emoji icons "fix" if you can only send it to other iPhones. I have like 200 contacts 3 of them have an iphone.....

      I would have prefered that there wasnt even a fix for this because it isjust a bigger tease!!!!

      Updates:

      Out of desperation, I decided to do a fresh install of Apple iPhone Update v2.2
      Then without synching anything, launch Pwnage tool and create custom firmware.
      In expert mode, uncheck 'activate iphone' and increased partition to 1024MB.
      Custom firmware created successfully.
      Re-store iPhone using custom firmware. All ok. BUT, Cydia STILL refuses to launch. What the heck is wrong? Can someone point me to the right direction please....
      Thanx.
