    I just quickpwned my iphone 3G with my unibody macbook pro running mac os 10.5.6. I used the DFU fix from the following website, worked perfectly.

    DO NOT DO THIS!!!!!

    This crap bricks your iPhone (Stuck on booting logo).

    This does not work! I now have an iPhone with a stupid pineapple logo that does nothing but show the stupid pineapple, and vibrates twice periodically. I left it like this for hours and still nothing.

    Finally some progress.
    BTW, when I did this update, it appeared to go through the whole update scenario. Here is what went down:

    (1) On Mac - Sending 018-4443-16.dmg 22531KB
    (2) On Mac - Sending kernelcache,release.s518900x
    (3) On iPhone - Flashing NOR (Running Pineapple logo)
    (4) On iPhone - Installing Bundles
    (5) On iPhone - Syncing Filesystems
    (6) On iPhone - Rebooting
    (7) On iPhone - Pineapple logo!!!! forever

    So now some good luck for me. I started with the PC page, then read the Mac page. Luckilly the Mac page had the details of how to put the phone in firmware mode. Turn off device, Turn on device with both power and home for 10 seconds, then release just power while still holding home for another 10 secs. All this while connected to itunes. This allowed me to restore my iphone via itunes to its original appleness. Next, I figure since I am no long en pineapple brick mode, that I should be able to get out of it again if I screw things up again. So this time I skipped the part in this write up where it said:

    If your iPhone 3G firmware Version is 2.2.1 (5H11) and Modem Firmware is 02.30.03 then you are ready to jailbreak your iPhone 3G, you can skip directly to "Jailbreak iPhone 3G using QuickPwn" below.

    When I first tried this process, I looked at the about screen in the iPhone and verified that this was true so I skipped straigth to jailbreaking with QuickPwn. Big mistake! Maybe this is not the case for everyone, but this was the case for me. I went ahead and did this file-style firmware update to my iPhone (even though I already had 2.2.1) anyway. Next I did the jailbreak with QuickPwn and badabing ... I'm good.

    I'm having trouble as well. I'm running mac os 10.5.6 on a iMac. Iphone 3G 2.2.1 (5H11) firmware. 02.30.03 modem firmware. Followed all the steps. Got the message that the process was successful, however the screen on my iphone stays white then doesn't restart automatically. It shuts off instead. Can anyone help me?
    Haven't tried anything else yet.

    thanks!
