I was going to do the methods described but I decided to wait. I dont see the large number of people coming in here saying that it worked great, instead, everywhere I see people saying that iTunes is causing so many errors, or other apps are buggy, and quite frankly, if this was a true, 90-95% JB procedure then I would expect to see more people
doing/saying it worked with no problem for them. I will just wait for winpwn 3.0 to be released. Maybe someone who did any of willydavid's methods with no problems can convince me other wise, but I doubt it.

I've tried several of your FAQ walk throughs with no luck.
I dont remember the last code, but just now I have "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1600)" This was using the DFU mode, shift restore. I even tried the QuickPwn method,but I never see a dos window. does QuickPwn RC3 not show the dos window? I extracted that and ran QuickPwn.exe same thing, never see a dos box. I cant get the timing down to make the white screen stick. Now what?

No he means it has to have been pwned in the past once before, which I believe you said yours was. Try using an older version of winpwn. The version doesn't really matter as your just using the program to get your phone to the 'white' dfu mode. Also I would suggest restoring to stock 2.1 before making another attempt.Comprehensive iPhone 2.1 FAQ:

Basically, STFU if you can not answer a specific question. And out of the 38 pages you keep mentioning, 10 of the pages are people asking for help with a new error they have encountered and 10 more pages are full of people asking for CFW to be posted for us Windows users.

So they key is to use the older QuickPwn with the older 2.0.1 firmware.
This older QuickPwn method is much easier to figure out when to terminate quickpwn.exe via task manager.
The only instructions I would correct are where he says
"-Start up QuickPWN.exe,"
what he really means is to run QuickPwn-Bundle-Release.exe
The actual QuickPWN.exe wont show up in task manager until you get to the middle part of the process.
As soon as the screen turns white end the task on QuickPWN.exe and the white screen will stay there. Now you can shift restore and you shouldnt get any errors! (I didnt)

ninthchamber99: Maybe you should upgrade to 2.0.1 instead of going straight to 2.1. Then you can be sure you're in the same boat as the rest of us here. Just do a shift restore but point to the older "official" firmware. You can then quickpwn via the older way with the older firmware first

somewhere in the high 400's I posted that I HAD read every post in this thread, AND i've been keeping up with it several times a day, EVERYDAY since last Friday. If YOU had been reading, instead of slamming me, you would have known that!!!!
"The person" stated in that post that he would keep us posted too, and he hasn't posted 1 word since he made that statement on Saturday.
I'm within my right to indicate in my post that there hasn't been a peep from the Dev's in 4 days. It would be nice to at least know somebody is working on it... it's really starting to seem like there's no Windows Quickpwn even coming!
I'm not trying to be a PITA, but I need to get up to 2.1, my phone has been acting nutz ever since Cydia did that rash of updates over the weekend.

ninth i said that in my post! just use quickpwn and use the 2.0.1 or 2.0.2! after u quikpwn u will see the screen flash! then just upload the custom firmware! It should be all gravy after that!
EDIT! yo ninth use quickpwn and not winpwn...i tried winpwn and it didn't succeed. just use quickpwn

Yo, I do appreciate you responding to me. I guess I was upset because I was ready to upgrade my phone, I was not getting any real responses. and I was just mad as hell. So, thanks again.

I asked this earlier but no one responded. Can I just plug my syncd-to-windows-device to a mac and use pwnage? Then go back to pc and sync my stuff?

itunes 8.0 and firmware 2.1 is not a good combination for unlock sim adapter users , as for my experience ,i now keep getting no service every 4 to 6 hrs ,also keep getting an error everytime i attempted to downgrade to 2.0 or 2.0.1 .
