You'll want to do a "refurbish" in Ziphone first, that will "clean" up everything on the phone and take it back to OTB condition. Obviously back up everything first.
Then upgrade to 2.1 firmware with Itunes. After that use Quickpwn to "unlock" and "jailbreak" the phone. Just do everything correctly and you shouldnt have any issues.

^^You will lose all your "hacked" apps, etc. Anytime you upgrade the phone gets wiped.
Your settings, sms, contacts, etc can be backed up in Itunes.
Oh, and welcome to MMi!

I had the same problem as the above poster. As in, the phone kept rebooting itself after my quickpwn 2.1.
Originally I had installed Apple's 2.1 update and I think doing this quickpwn stuff OVER it is what is causing some major issues... anyway I had to do a 'fresh out of the box' restore and THEN quickpwn with the new software.
Worked fine! Although this all took me 2 hrs... haha

Where can I download the 2.1 firmware? It is not in the downloads section of this site as said before. I tried to just "download" it from itunes but I don't know where it is saved. I read it's in App Data.. but I don't even have that folder for some reason.

(Thanks Abobader for keeping me from looking it up )
Im also happy to report, upgrading straight to 2.1 from 2.0.2 and quickpwning without cleaning up all the crap I had on my Iphone......SO TOTALLY CRASHED IT.
But as we're already aware of. Alot depends on the AppStore apps you have installed. Oh well, DFU here I go.
Edit: After a clean restore it worked flawlessly.

^^Well, its probably a 50/50 chance of something crashing.
In my opinion, I always like to do a clean restore in Itunes before pwning, not syncing and leaving all apps, etc off the phone until AFTER I pwn.
Some people dont have problems, some do.

GUIDE, Upgrade from Jailbroken 2.0.2 to Jailbroken 2.1 without losing ANYTHING!!
I added a couple notes at the end of that thread for the windows quickpwn method. Other than that I followed that method and it worked great."Spaceships don't come equipped with rear view mirrors..." -Andre Benjamin the 3000th
