Quickpwnd! It was so easy. Worked the first time too!
-Updated to 2.0.2 via iTunes. (first I did "download only" to get the file. Then clicked update to go to 2.0.2)
-Sync to get a clean back-up. If you haven't jailbroke yet, make sure to sync to have a "clean" file. I have heard about using a jb'd backup can cause bugginess after pwning.
-Follow the steps. I unchecked "boot logos" to keep the apple...though I wish I could use my previous pwnd logos. But whatever.
-When it came to following the steps for DFU, I did not. I put my iPod into DFU on my own and then the pwning beagn on its own....
-The iPod rebooted and I am now 2.0.2 pwnd! You Tube, maps, installer, cydia all work. Including mail.
For those with mail not working, I had to just reenter my password in the mail settings to fix it!
Now DFU: I have used these steps and they have worked EVERY time, the FIRST time. I know it works with my 16g iPod. Phones may be different.
-Turn off the device and wait until it is off.
-Press BOTH power+home for 10seconds. I count: 1-one thousand, 2-one thousand....
-After 10-one thousand let go of the POWER button and keep holding the HOME button for about another 10 seconds. Remember don't let go of the power button until you finish 10-one thousand, like before you would count to 11.
-You will hear the duh-nuh USB sound on PC and the pwning process will begin. Let go of the HOME button. Sit back and relax.
Hope it helps. I know it's helped me.

Wow... 13 pages of posts and comments there's only one post asking for the Mac version of the tool. Does this mean that the Mac community is more patient?
Keep up the great work, iPhone Dev team. I know you guys will let us have a Mac tool very soon.
08-22-2008, 05:48 AM #186
Well, with IntelMac we don't really care what the platform is anymore - we have the best of both worlds in one computer!

By the way, for the folks with the ultra, already been covered basic questions:
Logic does go a loooong way in these processes. If you understand how each factor of the process works, meaning what each element does; you can understand what will come next or what is neccessary for your phone to run JB and Unlocked (for 2G users)
Normal Restore = Plug + itunes logo (or custom if pwned)
DFU = screen blank (black) yet recognized in itunes as in "restore mode" (part of pwning process)
Jailbreak = ability to customize and load 3rd party apps.
Unlock = use on any gsm carrier.
OEM Firmware = Factory Firmwares: non-custom built, not edited.
ipsw's = firmwares both custom built and OEM (see above)
Restore Firmware = itunes installed (shift + restored or automatic itunes server)
Restore Backup = settings (network, wifi, email, contacts, App store apps) through itunes
Winpwn/Pwnage tool = manually building custom ipsw's for updating firmwares for jailbreaking and/or unlocking
QuickPwn = Easy to use interface (GUI) jailbreaking only. Requires previous unlocked firmwares or legal At&t contracts (2G, 3G)
Try and really understand what these items are by researching, reading, and having patience, and you will then really understand what things are supposed to do and be able to do them correctly.

So do I have to keep reinstalling apps everytime apple makes a new firmware? Kind of a pain in the neck but oh well.
QuickPwn is sweet though! That is a damn fast upgrade.
08-23-2008, 06:35 PM #189
For installing 3rd party apps yes. for app store programs, technically no.
You are able to do a backup restore once pwned however Ive noticed more bugs and less performance overall by doing this. I now only set up as a new phone and port my contacts I saved on my pc. Everything else I just re-download and install. It really only takes about 30 minutes to get everything back in order. I'll take the longer set up time over poor performance any day!
Ok I saw another person in this thread had a Youtube issue
Here's the screenshot of the error. My wife's phone also is having the same issue. I quickpwned my phone already once and I had to re-quickpwn so to speak because Intelliscreen just crippled my phone. The only thing I havent done that I did in the past was restore from a backup, (which my phone is running infinitely better because I havent)
My question is: Is this something I should do? Is this because itunes hasnt resored this? I havent seen an answer in this thread or anywhere else. Im at work right now but will try and troubleshoot this when I get home. Hopefully somone here may know why this happened.
And Just so were on the same page, My EDGE settings are configured correctly, wifi runs great.
Im on the 19.99 Unlimited plan through T Mobile. I started pwning/jailbreaking since firmware 1.1.3 was first introduced. I have a good amount of experience with these phones and I havent been able to resolve it as of yet. we shall see...

HELP HELP HELP!!!. I had successfully upgraded my 1.1.4 to 2.0.1 using WINPWN tool and youtube worked fine. I used QuickPWN GUI to jailbreak /upgrade 2.0.2. it worked fine, and upgraded without issues, restored back my iphone settings. however, now it does not run Youtube. It says first run Itune by connecting to internet. and when i run itune, it says, your country does not support Itune music store. So in nutshell Youtube and Itune have stopped working.... Any comments and help will be highly appreciated...

Hi MUGGZ5, are you able to solve Youtube activation problem. I just re-quickpwned my phone and installed again 2.0.2, but youtube problem remains same.
08-25-2008, 10:30 AM #196
Are you using a 3g phone? Are you an ATT customer? If you are you, make sure you aren't checking the utube activation box during setup.
