ok what phone are you using and what firmware file. for a first off attempt at this you need to put your iphone in DFU mode before it even TOUCHES the computer. follow these steps below to get into DFU mode and THEN try the shift restore in itunes to select the 2.2 firmware file. ill be able to help better when i have more info about your phone

ok i have the 3g iphone i have downloaded 3 different firmwares all 2.2 including the official one. ive always been putting it into dfu mode and still it hasn't worked. but the weird thing is it has for sum reason just worked! im finally at 2.2. i do however have the problem of jailbreaking it. would you recommend using quickpwn? i am on windows by the way

i see that your on windows. follow the guide below and just start from the part after you have 2.2 installed. the downloads for the needed files are in the tutorial as well

thanx its was going fine, ive done everything wright, its on the screen were it puts your phone into recovery mode and its put it into recovery mode but isnt telling me to put in to dfu mode its just sittin there doin nothing as if it dosent realise its in recovery mode. any idea y?

you have to put it in dfu mode again when it tells you to. the reason being is that it has to modify files that it can only do while the phone is in dfu mode...NOT in recovery mode. make sure you follow the steps exactly. and just to clarify the phone is up and running and usable at this point right? please remember the phone has to be in its normal state in order for quickpwn to work.The beatings will continue until morale improves.

the phone is in a normal state, quickpwn automatically puts it into recovery mode then its supposed to tell me to hold the home button for 5 seconds etc etc... but that part doesn't actual highlight. so it just stays as waiting for your phone to enter recovery mode even though its already put it into recovery mode. it really wont work. is there another program i could try?
