    Default help save my NEW** 2g
    so i got my 2g replaced under warranty but now i cant get it to activate- for tmobile

    the only thing i can get itunes to do is restore the phone to factory- qwkpwn and pwnage both fail to get me into DFU- i have 10.5.6- but i have the patch fix- so i know i can get into DFU on this machine [as i did this morning when i restored my phone before genuis bar- i dfu restored 3 times to be safe]

    so when i got the phone home, i updated it in itunes, but did not activate [i dont have att]- then i tried to install the same 2.2.1 custom firmware i had on my old iphone- but got a 1600 error- so i built a new custom firmware using the fresh download of 2.2.1 itunes downloaded- but that didnt work either-

    then i tried qwkpwn- and it would not let me go into dfu-

    any ideas? i just put a fresh restore of factory on there, and its asking me to activate- im gonna try qwkpwn again.....

    HELP!

    Update 1! now it wont even power on! qwkpwn failed- and then itunes popped up- and i tried restoring to factory again- and half way through, itunes quit... itunes 8.0.2- btw.... and it was really in the middle- the apple logo with the bar below it, and the bar was empty- itunes just stopped in the middle of a restore- i held the power and home button till it powered off, and now it wont even power on.... HELP please!

    update 2... its on and restoring as i type [like magic it popped back on after i left it unplugged for 5 minutes, then plugged it back in- i tried that several times before hand, and it didnt work. the only thing that changed was that i opened a beer.] --i did delete my old official iphone firmware, and reldownloaded it in itunes-

    update 3... qwkpwn entered dfu and its doing its thing!!!

    update 4... qwkpwn worked! now restoring to custom firmware!
