    Have you tried downloading quickpwn again. I had a version that didn't work right so I downloaded it again and then it worked great. Also, make sure that your iphone is plugged directly into your computers USB port and not a USB hub.

    Well the 1st thing it asks for the 1st step is hold home button for 5 seconds

    2nd is hold home AND power buttons for 10 seconds

    3rd is release power and continue to hold home for 30 seconds

    it wont even go to the 1st step:/

    i have no idea why its doing this

    it never has done this before

    and hold both for ten seconds and then let go of the power but keep holding the home for ten

    if you dont know that you have never jailbroken b4, its ok tho

    also if you are using quickpwn it will guide you through it

    try iClarified - Tutorials

    that kid doent know what he's talking about

    Are you using Mac or PC? If your using mac you could try using Pwnage. I like Pwnage better, I like adjusting the restore package to add sources and get rid of installer.

    Gives thanks...Do you?
