Thread: QuickPwn RC3 Release

Anyone having issues, after installing QuickPWN, loading iPhone into a MAC?
It will not read my iPhone in MAC anymore!
Also, I can't restore my iPhone from a MAC either I have to restore from my PC!

I'm not having luck the second time around trying to quickpwn. Here is what I did.
1) put iphone into recovery mode, let itunes restore to defaults
2) when restore was done, I told itunes NOT to restore the backup and treat it as a new iphone.
3) I had to manually resetup mail, but at least it worked this time. This vanilla system was good to go then so far.
4) I let itunes transfer all my appstore apps over. I didnt bother letting music sync yet.
5) I ran the new RC3 QuickPwn exe as is. Instructions worked, after the 30 second coundown I had the pineapple logo.
6) My phone sat at the logo for over 30 minutes! (never boots) I tried resetting the phone and the logo still never goes away
I was forced to do a itunes recovery mode yet again. Should I leave my phone totally vanilla and quickpwn right away? (without transfering apps)
So again, I didnt extract anything and ran the QuickPwnRC3.exe as is
Maybe I should try these other instructions I read about extracting first? It makes sense since my first jailbreak 2.0.2 success I had was the pure command prompt version of quickpwn. What should I do? It's a pain to wait 2 hours between each recovery/restore etc. I want to use the latest version since I read it fixes the permision problems that most likely caused my mail to stop opening in the first place.
I did another factory reset/restore, left it vanilla, and did the break via quickpwn.exe extracted from the QuickPwnRC3.exe
All works again! I lost my backup stuff but oh well. I plan to use the cydia "app backup" program in the feature for specific app data I really care about. I cant seem to trust the apple backup/restore process any more. The last two backup restores failed or hung on me so not good!
If you find appstore or cydia installs start hang near the end of installing, and then even worse your phone is stuck on pineapple bootup screen at some point, read this!
(you might want to read to prevent it from happening to you as well)
