      Did you restore to a clean 2.1 before running quickpwn?

      worked fine for me

      here are the steps i took to go from a jb 2.0.2 t-mobile to jb 2.1 t-mobile

      1. update with itunes to 2.1
      2. used quickpwn to install cydia and installer, did not check unlock since i was still unlocked after the itunes update
      3. waited about 10 minutes
      4. finished

      had all apps and settings still in place, minus the cydia and installer apps, i did not bother to try to back any of that up though.

      thanks.

      I jailbroke and selected the unlock option on my iPhone but it is not unlocked. I place a different sim card in there and I get that stupid emergency screen, I can make phone calls but I have no options for anything. Can someone please let me know what i'm doing wrong.

Should I just quickpwn or I have seen suggestions on actually doing a clean restore first. Suggestions?

      Also, anyone who has had success, does winterboard work on 2.1?
      No need to do clean restore. Actually i benefitted from not doing so in that all of my nes roms, customize themes and few other things were still on the phone. Winterboard is fine. Interesting thing when i updated to 2.1 my custom carrier, numeric battery, custom root memory size and sgain a few other things stayed.

      Only do a clean restore if the phone crashes after being pwnd. Which is usually caused by one or more apps installed. Which is also what mine did , just got done fixing that mess.

      ^^Try cutting the phone on with the power button.

      If nothing happens, cut the life line. Put the phone into DFU mode, restore again with itunes and start over.

      i even installed the bootneuter and it already has the settings that would make it unlocked. but like i said when i put a new simcard it says new sim card detected please connect to itunes.

      Hold power button and home button for 10 seconds, then let go of power and hold home for 10 seconds, then restore in itunes, sorry

      I'd help you guys with the unlocking/activating problems but I've yet to activate my phone. Also I don't think you can activate with quickpwn, you might have to wait for Winpwn for 2.1.

      Have you got firmware 2.1 on your computer? Its located here:

      CDocuments and Settings\your_profile_name\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\

      You can also try moving it to the quickpwn folder.

      Thats odd, unfortunately there's really not a "fix". You can try uninstalling/reinstalling itunes, but it may just be a server problem and you'll have to wait it out.

      Sorry for the Noobie question but,...
      If I update to 2.1 using quickpwn(already have a jailbroken 2.0.2 3G) will it change my baseband and possibly in the future not be able to be unlocked?
