    yes that's what im trying to do ive just updated the firmware and i think i NEED an o2 sim card to activate the new update and the iphone, i cannot even get onto the iphone i plug it in and it just goes to itunes screen ????:thinking:

    using windows or osx?

    not sure for windows if quickpwn activates or not

    pwnage definitely does for mac osx though

    Is it a 2G, 3G, or 3GS?

    what are you trying to do?

    just do the jailbreak with quickpwn,which should activate,then install red snow via cydia on the phone,which will unlock

    i do not no anyone who has a mac and yes its brand new i have full signal on an o2 simcard but i do NOT want to be on o2 as im on contract with tmobile, i just read on the forums that when it gets stuck on the "waiting for reboot" he said jus pull the cable out of the phone and plug it back in? and there were about 7 comments underneath saying thanks!! etc. etc. Pulling the cable out in the process seems like it could **** the phone up to me ???
