*Unofficial* Jailbreak Firmware 2.2.1 (Windows)

Written By Unknown on Thursday, January 29, 2009 | 7:19 AM


Firmware 2.2.1 Jailbreak

NOTE: This is an unofficial release

I just jailbroke my iPod Touch 1st Generation with the firmware 2.2.1 update thanks to Vortex, a Russian hacker for creating the bundles  for the firmware 2.2.1 update.  You can jailbreak firmware 2.2.1 for your iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch 1st Generation now.   A lot of people are anxiously awaiting this jailbreak but you must realize that it's beta and it won't be worth it jailbreaking yet.  iPhone 3G users, do not update to firmware 2.2.1 if you want to keep your unlock because firmware 2.2.1 will update your baseband permanently.  You will need to download custom firmware with an earlier baseband in order to use jailbreak.

Firmware 2.2.1 download links:

January 29, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Oh my god! We love you all! :D

January 29, 2009 at 8:01 AM

When I try to run QuickPwn.exe it gives me an error:
The application failed to initialze properly (0xc0000135).
is it something I could fix ?

January 29, 2009 at 8:01 AM

i got it to work

January 29, 2009 at 8:03 AM

My first time jailbreaking my iphone 3g hope it works

January 29, 2009 at 8:03 AM

You need to have the .net framework in order for it to work. Here’s the link:

January 29, 2009 at 8:03 AM

Daniel Try redownloading it. You need to have the .net framework in order for it to work. Here's the link:

January 29, 2009 at 8:06 AM

If you want to unlock your iPhone 3G you should refrain from jailbreaking (as mentioned in this post).

January 29, 2009 at 8:07 AM

OMGSH! thx so much for the fast release! you guys are the best... :D

January 29, 2009 at 8:11 AM

hello, I have an iphone fw 1.1.4(4A102) modem firmware 04.04.05_G and want to upgrade to 2.2 should I do? thanks and you're the best QuickPWN

January 29, 2009 at 8:19 AM

Hallelujah, I am so happy that this became available as i was one of the fools that upgraded to 2.2.1 accidentally and got rid of my jailbreak. =(
You guys ROCK!

January 29, 2009 at 8:22 AM

quickpwn is giving an error report everytime i open it

January 29, 2009 at 8:30 AM

Awesome! Thank you!

How long till a Mac version?

January 29, 2009 at 8:35 AM


Jailbroke ipod 1st gen 2.2.1 on a mac via bootcamp.


January 29, 2009 at 8:35 AM

This is awesome, but a newbie question. I have a jailbroken and unlocked iphone 2g. If i apply this does it lock the phone again and is there an unlock for it. If it does than I will wait. Thank you

January 29, 2009 at 8:37 AM


January 29, 2009 at 8:39 AM

QuickPwn put Iphone in Recovery Mod and after that nothing happens =(

January 29, 2009 at 8:41 AM

wow, fast. gotta wait for a mac version though...

January 29, 2009 at 8:42 AM

So we should run the 2.2.1 update from apple and then run the quickpwn?

January 29, 2009 at 9:09 AM

i cant wait til the mac version comes out...
how long until then?

January 29, 2009 at 9:14 AM

QuickPwn.exe gives some wierd error!!!

January 29, 2009 at 9:15 AM

thanks! Awesome ;) IMPRESSIONANT

January 29, 2009 at 9:15 AM

You can't use yellowsn0w if you upgrade to firmware 2.2.1 because your baseband will permanently be updated and yellowsn0w only supports baseband of 02.28. So if you want yellowsn0w don't upgrade right now and wait for iPhone Dev Team to figure out a solution.

January 29, 2009 at 9:18 AM

any success with the new jailbreak? i can see smiley faces and QuickPWN startup problems but no post about a jailbreaked iPhone3G (QuickPWN 2.2.1 has no problem starting up on my machine anyway)

January 29, 2009 at 9:20 AM

need the mac version!!!

January 29, 2009 at 9:20 AM

You're all great. Thanks!

January 29, 2009 at 9:26 AM

Will this work for the ipod touch, G2???

January 29, 2009 at 9:28 AM

No the iPod Touch 2G jailbreak is not out yet.

MAC (required)
January 29, 2009 at 9:29 AM

Thank you for the prompt response...any idea how to get my G2 to broadcast video to my TV? I can get sound, no video..I was hoping the jaibreak would allow that

January 29, 2009 at 9:29 AM

thankyou very much :D good work

January 29, 2009 at 9:31 AM


January 29, 2009 at 9:36 AM

Will the iphone 1st Gen get locked?

January 29, 2009 at 9:39 AM

How should I proceed if I have already 2.2 jailbroken (not unlocked) and I want to upgrade, I don't wanna mess up my configuration. Please provide steps for my case...

January 29, 2009 at 9:41 AM

i hope mac version comes out soon im tring it on my laptop. on iphone 3g. so ill be back with resluts

January 29, 2009 at 9:43 AM

In this post it says "You can jailbreak firmware 2.2.1 for your iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch 1st Generation with this QuickPWN 2.2.1 software. "
so that means we can jailbreak iphone 3g 2.2.1 right...but then it says....
"iPhone 3G users, do not update to firmware 2.2.1 if you want to keep your unlock "

so does this mean we can jailbreak it but we will loose our unlock if we updated to 2.2.1?


January 29, 2009 at 9:47 AM

Did everything I'm supposed to do, and got error message in QuickPwn "Firmware error string" Pretty positive it's a 1st gen iPod. Version "iPod1,1_2.2.1_5H11_Restore.ipsw" installed fine.

iPod serial # 9C8029 (beginning)
Model # MA627LL

Can someone verify this is 1st gen?

I've tried everything, been getting this message all day with even downgrading.

January 29, 2009 at 10:02 AM

A question...can i create a custom firmware with pre installet my preferred application?If yes...how i can do this?

January 29, 2009 at 10:08 AM

Just wonder if i upgrade to 2.2.1/jailbreak it can i still use the yellowsn0w sim unlock?

January 29, 2009 at 10:08 AM

is the 2g jailbreak out yet? if not do you know an exact date?

January 29, 2009 at 10:10 AM

Will QuickPWN 2.2.1 update me to 2.2.1 as well as jailbreak? Or do I have to install 2.2.1, lose my jailbroken apps, quickpwn, and then find and re-install my jailbroken apps?

January 29, 2009 at 10:10 AM

is it possible that iphone Dev Team creates a new yellowsn0w for iphones with 2.2.1 firm?

Dave Anderson
January 29, 2009 at 10:16 AM

I have a previous jailbroken 2.2 iphone 3G but after using the 2.2.1 firmware above, it stays the same. Any ideas?

January 29, 2009 at 10:19 AM

Is there an estimate on how long til the Itouch 2G jailbreak be out?
either (5G77a) or the new firmware apple released is fine.
just wanted to know how long til then.

January 29, 2009 at 10:32 AM

Thanks for the speedy response. You guys are the best. Can't wait to try it!!!

January 29, 2009 at 10:54 AM

Arg, I need some help with the jailbreaking my ipod with 2.2.1, I have the latest version of QuickPWN and I think I do i'm doing it right. I always get to the part where it tells me to hold the home button and all that, then when I get to one second left of holding only the home for 30 seconds a message pops up saying something along the lines of Your ipod was not connected properly or you did not follow the instrucsions correctly ( But I did both of them) . I have one other question. Do I need a speacial Firmware or whatever that I have to browse for when it tells me to or can I just use the one the that shows up automaticaly?
Thanks so much, Eliwh

January 29, 2009 at 11:00 AM

i successfully jbed it,but howcome the installer and cyndia is not there?

January 29, 2009 at 11:04 AM

Just to make sure........this DOES unlock the iPhone 2G, not just jailbreak it?

January 29, 2009 at 11:08 AM

Many Thanks to the Great Team!!! Amazing Work!!!

We Mac users are suffering!!! but i'm sure, not more long time will be, till this one get releassed.

Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks to you alllllll !!!!!!

January 29, 2009 at 11:24 AM

So if we already installed 2.2.1 firmware and updated the baseband, we're basically beat right? Any idea if we will ever be able to jailbreak and use the phone again?

January 29, 2009 at 11:31 AM

After jailbreaking my iPhone is stuck in reboot mood, iTunes won't even recognize it...

January 29, 2009 at 11:32 AM

iphone 3g wont reboot, stuck on the apple logo, and it keeps connecting/disconnecting from computer

January 29, 2009 at 11:36 AM

Hey guys, I have my iP 3G 2.2 jailbroken (not unlocked), and I already have a lot of programs and configurations. What's the best way of upgrading without messing up my things... Should I upgrade then jailbreak, Please provide some steps... thxs, and great job BTW...

Jailbreak done on iphone 3g 2.2.1 and works perfect thanks

January 29, 2009 at 11:43 AM

When will the iPod touch 2G QuickPwn be coming out? I have been anxiously waiting and really, I am disappointed with the delay between the release of the 2G and the ongoing backlog of "development" for the iPod touch 2G QuickPwn. Could someone give me an estimate for when the software will be coming out?

January 29, 2009 at 11:45 AM

Player187 great job thanks

January 29, 2009 at 12:18 PM

when do you think the jailbreak for 2g will come out

January 29, 2009 at 12:24 PM

i have old iphone 8gb not 3G and i made update software 2.2.1, i download but i cant install on to my iphone and now my iphone is locked. what i have to do! Help me!

January 29, 2009 at 12:24 PM

Any word on when the Mac Version is coming out?? Im stoked to jailbreak my iTouch.

January 29, 2009 at 12:32 PM

I tried this with firmware 2.2.1 with an iphone 2g three times, and all three times after quickpwn would finish, it would try to reboot, but just hang on the apple logo, occasionally sending 2 vibrations. i waited 15 minutes each time, but was never able to get it to come back up. :(

January 29, 2009 at 12:40 PM

Worked perfectly. Many thanks from Doozy out jerzy.

January 29, 2009 at 12:48 PM

i love you.. worked with ipod touch 1g

January 29, 2009 at 1:06 PM

I have an unlocked and jailbroken 2.2 iphone on tmobile. Will this unlock and jailbreak it or just jailbreak? Thanks

January 29, 2009 at 1:06 PM

January 29, 2009 at 1:08 PM

Well uh, gee guys I ran Quickpwn 2.2.1 and selected the 2.2.1 firmware, it jailbroke it, then I went and looked at the firmware version number and it still say 2.2. So much for that :-/

I'll try again.

January 29, 2009 at 1:14 PM

phinn ur a moron.
you need to UPDATE first.
Quickpwn jailbreaks, it doesnt update genuis.


January 29, 2009 at 1:16 PM

Hey Quickpwn guys: What is this program supposed to do? I have fw 2.2 jailbroken already and I downloaded 2.2.1, and downloaded the 2.2.1 firmware, selected that firmware with the app and after going through the whole jailbreak i STILL have 2.2. on my phone. I've tried it TWICE now.

January 29, 2009 at 1:20 PM

This worked on my iPhone 3G. THANK YOU!

January 29, 2009 at 1:20 PM

w000t!! thanks it works with my 1st gen. 8gb ipod!

Jay (required)
January 29, 2009 at 1:20 PM

and does this include cydia?

January 29, 2009 at 1:23 PM

Car (required)
January 29, 2009 at 1:31 PM

This worked great! Thank you!
Iphone 3G 2.2.1 jailbroken!
same as always.

January 29, 2009 at 1:33 PM

um, how long is it supposed to take for the iphone to reboot after being jailbroken? It's been rebooting for over 10 minutes now -.-

January 29, 2009 at 1:36 PM

Good questions here...I too would like to know if I have a bunch of apps from cydia, do I upgrade the os to 2.2.1 and then jailbreak and then reinstall everything again or is there a better way that I dont have to mess around with everytihng I have done so far...any help would be great and thanks for all your great work

January 29, 2009 at 2:09 PM

That's the best news ever ! But,do you happen to have one that supports Mac? Much appriciated if you can post it here also,thanks!

January 29, 2009 at 2:21 PM

Just downloaded quickpwn 2.2.1 and jail broke my phone works great.

January 29, 2009 at 2:33 PM

i just installed quickpwn 2.2.1 in my ipod touch 1G 2.2.. after it reboots, it just gets stuck at the apple logo.. flickering every few minutes.. how do i solve this?

January 29, 2009 at 2:42 PM

any update on when the mac .dmg will be available for 2.2.1?

January 29, 2009 at 2:53 PM

Works great so far. Thank you!

January 29, 2009 at 2:55 PM

can someone explain to me the process of saving your cydia applications before the upgrade. i dont really understand how it works.

January 29, 2009 at 3:00 PM

I had a jailbroken 2.2 and I just ran quickpwn 2.2.1 with the new FW for my 3G and the whole process seemed to have gone fine, however in settings, it still displays the 2.2 FW and not the 2.2.1. Any idea why?

January 29, 2009 at 3:06 PM

You're supposed to update your iPhone to firmware to 2.2.1 in iTunes and then jailbreak.

January 29, 2009 at 3:06 PM

Thanks! That's work!

January 29, 2009 at 3:15 PM

I would like to know the answer to that as well...thanks

January 29, 2009 at 3:15 PM

You can do this with AptBackup from Cydia.

1. Go to Cydia and install AptBackup
2. Launch AptBackUp and hit the backup button
3. Sync your device (do not resync again or your backup will be gone and you'll need to do step 2 again)
4. Restore your device and jailbreak again
5. Launch Cydia and reinstall AptBackup and hit the restore button
6. Run the app and hit restore. All your applications will be downloaded and your device will reboot.

January 29, 2009 at 3:17 PM

I'm new to jailbreaking and currently run mac osx 10.5.6 and have heard bad things about trying it out on there. Would it be better to jailbreak my iphone 3g on a windows machine? Is there any drawbacks to this if I currently sync my phone with itunes on my mac? Thanks

January 29, 2009 at 3:35 PM

If I have an iPhone 3g with AT&T service and i've already installed the 2.2.1 update and my baseband is updated to 02.30.03, can I run this jailbreak and still use the phone?

January 29, 2009 at 3:38 PM

Yes you can.

January 29, 2009 at 3:38 PM

This version only works with Windows. You will have to wait until iPhone Dev Team releases the Mac version if you want to jailbreak on a Mac.

January 29, 2009 at 3:47 PM

Great! What device did you use?

January 29, 2009 at 3:47 PM

Worked perfectly for me using my mac with VMware Fusion 2. Your warnings didn't stop me! :)

January 29, 2009 at 3:51 PM

So I could jailbreak it with my windows machine if I wanted. Does this affect how it syncs with itunes on my Mac? Sorry for the stupid questions, just not sure. Thanks for the quick response.

January 29, 2009 at 3:54 PM

I would like to unlock my iphone2.2.1 can i ? I think you'r great

January 29, 2009 at 4:02 PM

Awesome!!!! Thanks for the quick response!!!

January 29, 2009 at 4:15 PM

Your Message Can I downgrade from 2.2.1 I need my iPhone 3g unlock to other networks or is it too late?

January 29, 2009 at 4:15 PM

1) restore your 2.2.1 firmware using itunes
2) and then use QUICKPWN to jailbreak it!!!

January 29, 2009 at 4:22 PM

Unfortunately you cannot because firmware 2.2.1 permanently upgraded your baseband.

January 29, 2009 at 4:31 PM

I'm having this same issue.

January 29, 2009 at 4:35 PM

can i still use my mac to jailbreak this version now? i used it for 2.2, but can i just download the firmware, add it to the package for quickpwn, select it from the menu inside, and it will work out ok??

i dont wanna break anything haha.

January 29, 2009 at 4:40 PM

So if you upgrade,it would be impossible to restore phone to factory settings?

January 29, 2009 at 4:40 PM

My windows says theres an error after the page "Select settings"
I had jailbroken ipod fw 2.2 before using QuickPwn, my device is currently 2.2.1

January 29, 2009 at 4:48 PM

I have solved the problem thx

January 29, 2009 at 5:09 PM

For those of you having trouble getting passed the apple icon on your iPhone when running quickpwn I might have found a way to complete the bootup with the jailbreak. With the iPhone connected to my pc and the boot running, I loaded iTunes (which of course was frozen) and the started up quickpwn again. That seemed to have pushed it through and iTunes loaded up with the sync screen. Then the iPhone was jailbroken and running fine. Not sure if this was the solution but it worked for me, give it a try if you want.

January 29, 2009 at 5:52 PM

I'm new to jail breaking but I'll try not to sound too much like a newbie. Ipod touch already had 2.2.1 from itunes. When i try to load the firmware from this site I get the error "ipod could not be restored. unknown error occurred. Ipod goes to recovery mode, only way to get it out is to restore using firmware from itunes. what am i missing?

January 29, 2009 at 5:56 PM

when trying to extract pwnage from winwar i get an error! how do i fix this?

January 29, 2009 at 6:19 PM

Does Yellowsn0w still work with 2.2.1 after jailbreaking ......

I dont wanna jailbreak and have a locked iphone...

I'd love a Jailbreaken and Unlocked Iphone ....

alex (required)
January 29, 2009 at 6:40 PM

i fixed that. but now when i hold shift and click restore and use the new firmwar its comes up with this error unknown error occured (1403)


January 29, 2009 at 6:40 PM

Gen 1 iPhone working fine with this software on 2.2.1. No hiccups at all, nice work guys ;)

January 29, 2009 at 6:46 PM

Quickpwn is this jailbreak safe to do?I'm really scared because muscelnerd was saying something about a malicious file could be attached?

January 29, 2009 at 6:49 PM

so i just did the update and rejailbroke but it has been sitting on the boot logo screen for quite some time now.
i really need some help. i need my phone.
it does vibrate from time to time if that is any help at all

January 29, 2009 at 6:51 PM

haha ok nevermind i guess it just took a little longer this time.
just dont panic anyone just let it do its thing i guess haha

January 29, 2009 at 6:51 PM

Where can I download custom firmware with an earlier baseband in order to use QuickPWN?

January 29, 2009 at 6:51 PM

You guys frigging rock! Thanks! Eagerly anticipating the Mac version as well. Great work!

January 29, 2009 at 7:11 PM

January 29, 2009 at 7:20 PM

January 29, 2009 at 7:23 PM

What about iPod Touch second generation :( :( ?

January 29, 2009 at 7:26 PM

Work's perfect for me, thanks!!!

January 29, 2009 at 7:47 PM

Does this work with iPod touch 2nd gen?

January 29, 2009 at 7:51 PM

This jailbreaked my Iphone 3G 16GB without any problems. I was stuck at the apple logo after the restart, but when I manually opened Itunes, closed it and opened it again the iphone started. Everything works fine now. Thank you!

January 29, 2009 at 8:17 PM

Hi QuickPwn, just one question, with a 2.2 3G iphone, I download quickpwn 2.2.1 and firmware 2.2.1 and i can jailbreak without trouble ?

Thanks for your answer ! and great job you do !

January 29, 2009 at 8:33 PM

ok yes but when i reinstalled aptbackup the icon does not show up

CHRIS (required)
January 29, 2009 at 8:49 PM

WITH 2.2.1 AND 02.30.03

January 29, 2009 at 9:22 PM

hey Chris

Check that itunes isn't set to auto sync, as it will want to replace the contents, but it should give you a warning that if you sync your iphone with a new /different library, it'll wipe all your existing tunes.

Check out swaptunes via cydia, it installs a second iTunes_Control folder and switches between each from the springboard.

Hope this helps.

January 29, 2009 at 9:37 PM

Keep it up a good work we'll definately support.
Thanks a lot, you guy are my life saver.

January 29, 2009 at 10:21 PM

does anyone know wen the dev team will have yellowsn0w running on 2.2.1 ?

January 29, 2009 at 10:35 PM

hey guys i huy a quick question. Do i need to download a new version of quickpwn or just the firmware. I am confused because on my screen the old one say 2.2-1 so i dont know. sorry for the stupid question.

January 29, 2009 at 10:41 PM

When is the MAC version coming? Upgraded to 2.2.1 ...

January 29, 2009 at 10:53 PM

where to get Vortex version of custom firmware ? done before i can't find it now ... thanks

January 29, 2009 at 11:01 PM

I bought an Iphone 3G with the baseband 2.30.03. I want to use it with the 02 Sim. How would I go about that? I tried everything downgrading to 2.2 Firmware, using QuickPWn... Nothing helps. I put my card inside but I can't seem to get any network.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you

January 29, 2009 at 11:25 PM

Yellowsn0w for new 2.2.1 firmware, that would be awesome. Good job jailmates!

January 29, 2009 at 11:32 PM

I have a Aluminum Macbook with 10.5.6 running and was wondering if I would be better off to Jailbreak on a Windows machine even though I normally sync my iphone with itunes on my MacBook? Anyone done this before or recommend this or have another idea?

January 30, 2009 at 12:09 AM

I got the same question, cos I'm in the same situation...
thx guys

January 30, 2009 at 12:39 AM

Dont jailbreak on a mac its difficult because of the mac os 10.5.6 you cant get in DFU mode.. so better jailbreak on a PC

January 30, 2009 at 12:47 AM

I have found quickpwn to be much easier and faster on a windows machine. Use windows.

January 30, 2009 at 12:47 AM

Thank you!. I thought I was in trouble when I accidentally upgraded to 2.2.1...

January 30, 2009 at 1:04 AM

I had the same issue, but I decided to plug it in to a USB 2.0 port and had no hiccups. Just make sure you have the .net framework installed.

January 30, 2009 at 1:23 AM

Since this is unofficial would there be a downside to using it instead of waiting for an official jailbreak?

January 30, 2009 at 1:55 AM

I have done the Jailbreak operation three times using my MacBook Pro and Quickpwn for MacOsX without any kind of problems.
I have also jailbroken other phone for friends. So it can be done in any platform without any kind of sync.

Does the Unofficial Jailbreak Firmware 2.2.1 include older 2.28 baseband?

January 30, 2009 at 2:34 AM

I tried to upgrade my iPhone 3g from 2.2 to 2.2.1 as per the instructions. It went through the usual QuickPWN installation process, chose the 2.2.1 firmware downloaded from here, and the QuickPWN reported everything upgraded correctly. But when I check the firmware on the iPhone, it still says 2.2 (5G77) as if nothing happened. Itune reports the same. I repeated the process again with another downloaded version of the 2.2.1 firmware, but the same thing happened.

Anyone have success upgrading to 2.2.1 with an iPhone 3G and this quickPWN pre-release?

January 30, 2009 at 2:55 AM

hello ! thank's for the software, but i need the bootloaders, are they the same for all iphone 2G firmware versions????

January 30, 2009 at 2:55 AM

this is for people stuck on 2.2.1........
if your wanting to downgrade you must first download the original 2.2

plug iphone into computer and restore to 2.2 (not custom: this will not work and error comes up) to do this you must press alt with mac then restore and choose 2.2 file, for pc im sure its shift and click
restore and same applys, use apples 2.2

once done, download quckpwn 2.2 or pwnage tool 2.0.3, i recomend pwnage as quickpwn didnt unlock the iphone, reason im not sure.

there you go........ now you can wait for big fix's on jailbreak 2.2.1

yes this works for 3g too

if your computer dosnt reconise your iphone/ipod manually put into dfu mode

(turn off phone - hold home and power on)

January 30, 2009 at 2:59 AM

So I quickpwned 2.2.1 yesterday, and today my phone relocked! I DFU restored to 2.2 and quickpwned again. Everything is fine now, but I wonder if there isn't an extra check in 2.2.1....

January 30, 2009 at 3:31 AM

i tried to jailbreak my ipod touch 2.2.1 and when quickpwn started i got a message that said the firmware cannot be found. i have a windows computer and i dont know what to do because i cant find the firmware when it says to browse for firmware.

January 30, 2009 at 3:46 AM

I jailbroke my iphone 3g with the unofficial quickpwn and it worked perfectly.

January 30, 2009 at 4:03 AM

The message that I get is :
"QuickPwn has stopped working"
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. - CLOSE PROGRAM.


January 30, 2009 at 4:05 AM

I've tried the unofficial jailbreak 2.2.1 but I'm getting "firmware error string" any ideas ? I.ve checked the string and its correct WTF ???

January 30, 2009 at 4:12 AM

os this AptBackup thing is not working at all. i re downloaded it after the 2.2.1 update and jailbreak but it says it is now an iconless app and needs to be used with an SSH but all the ssh's are iconless. what do i do to get this to work, i know there is a way but im just stupid i guess haha

January 30, 2009 at 4:14 AM

Hi chris, in my opinion it is better to do it with the windows because in case something goes wrong, you should not worried about your iphone data.
I also have macbook air with MAC OS and Windows Vista, and I always use Vista for updating and after I finished my work with iphone i reconnected to my macbook air.
Cheers and thanks to QuickPWN!

January 30, 2009 at 6:41 AM

January 30, 2009 at 6:41 AM

Thank you!

January 30, 2009 at 6:45 AM

I have a problem when i download the quickpwn2.2.1 an trying to jailbreak my Ipod I get this

Quickpwn.exe - Application error

the application Failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135. Click on okay to terminate the application

what should i do?

January 30, 2009 at 7:56 AM

You need to download a 2.2 firmware and restore your iphone from 2.2 them download 2.2.1 firmware and mod it with Quickpwn and then load 2.2.1 onto the iphone

January 30, 2009 at 9:19 AM

I recently had my Iphone crash and had reset the factory settings. in turn the restore function installed 2.2.1. Is there anyway to restore an older version of the baseband, it states that it is permanent above. I found a prior backup on another computer, though my assumption is that it never changes the baseband.

will the next version of QuickPWN address a work around for the new baseband, or later versions address this so that the iPhone will be able to jailBroken again...?

January 30, 2009 at 10:40 AM

i jailbroke my 36 with 2.2.1 and it was all good, but the only thing i could do is make a call........ please help? directions would be helpfull

January 30, 2009 at 10:52 AM

were you able to make calls after? what exactl did you do because after i jailbroke my phone i wasnt able to make a call

January 30, 2009 at 10:56 AM

so after using this "unofficial jailbreak" one still cannot unlock the iphone 3g yet, correct?

January 30, 2009 at 1:04 PM

i by accident upgraded to 2.21, confusing the ipsw file for a 2.2 one. dumbass me. i need to try this. neither quickPwn or pwnd work for me so far. gotta wait it out i guess.
