Windows Quickpwn 2.1 is out!!!!!!!!!!!!!"Spaceships don't come equipped with rear view mirrors..." -Andre Benjamin the 3000th

yeah... if you try this from 2.0.0 your gonna end up with the swod. if anyone was as retarded as me, just restore it via itunes and then quickpwn that ****. all of your **** is gone so if you have the swod, plug it in and ipod access will still recognize it and you can at least back up your songs. i'm so pissed i dont even feel like finding the ASCII facepalm but i'm sure you can all paint a mental picture...

yeah to do this you need to be on 2.0.2, next time go up in incrimental steps or it will be too much change for the phone to handle.
Anyone used this on windows yet? How'd ya get on? Can I change the guide to say it's safe?

1) the old /stash folders still have a ".kdsask" type suffix so you'll need to either remember which ones were old or look at the folder creation date.
2) I didn't see any non-ipa apps until I re-installed Winterboard
3) You'll need to move the themes from your old Themes.****** folder to the new one after reinstalling.
Other than that just follow the guide to the letter and you should be fine.
One more thing (sry): you may have to reinstall the Dock application if you have it but after you do you should still have all the same categories with the same apps in them (just the folder icons are reset).

that method did work. things didn't appear tho i had to move them first....and some refuse to appear like converter.app , recorder.app i suppose cause it's not compatible with 2.1 probably.
Thanks it was a great help
and i cosign with the one above me
the folder still had the letters after the appliation.folder
basically to remember which is which the new one has none of the application that you installed (via installer or cydia)

hi guys. ok i successfully upgraded and quickpwned my phone. when i was trying to correct all the folders i mistakenly deleted the wrong ringtones folder i think. so my phone is only showing the default marimba ringtone. so now how do i change the ringtone folder so that the phone can read the old folder. help guys.
Update: fixed the problem by re-updating and quickpwning . Wasted another hour to get everything right again.

Try installing a free app through the iTunes Store...
Reboot your phone...
There's a good change all your previous apps will reappear...

Does anyone know where the shortcuts are located that lead to the wallpaper.xxxxxx folder? Both my new and old wallpaper folders have the same modified date, so I need to find out which one is the new one.
Thanks will be due, and given! THANK YOU!
edit: also, does anyone know how to get cydia to recognize what is installed already? Otherwise it won't know when to notify of updates, etc.

After installation of Cydia and running it for the first time, Cydia automatically reorganizes your folder structure without user input. So when u ssh into ur phone to /var/stash u will see two Applications.xxxxx folders and so on for all other folders. Some you can figure out after slow & tedious comparison but others are just impossible to know even by their dates.
So i suggest readers NOT to delete anything but rather RENAME (eg. Ringtones.xxxxx.bak) the folders u "most likely think" are older versions. Then reboot ur phone and check if eveything is working. Only after a complete confirmation that every function and feature and setting is working fine, u may go ahead with deleting the folders. Of course this will not work on /Applications but others shud be fine.
Now as to why I quickpwned my phone twice: bcos I ended up deleting the wrong Ringtones folder (without any backup) . So i was left without any ringtones .
If anyone has a better suggestion pls. let us know.

Well I messed up my phone the first time. When I repeated the process on my sister's phone, I just took a screenshot of the old /var/stash folder components and compared it to the new ones after upgrading.
It was much easier to delete that way.
