Is there any way to get the stock 2.1.1 firmware back? I have successfully downgraded from 3.0 to a custom 2.1.1 firmware, but would like to get back to the stock Apple firmware. I've heard others claiming they've accomplished this, but I keep getting errors while restoring.
QuickPWN didn't work for me. I had to use PWNage tool instead.

Registering the Phone
How are your registering the phone, I thought you needed to register it as a development device through Xcode. I have an account as well but can not register the device in Xcode because it is not an activated device, I can't activate it because it isn't registered as a development device.
Do not install the drivers, unless you are willing to restore it back later.
Get a USB 2.0 hub, connect to your mac and try connecting to the hub port. The USB driver for the Intel based ports on the macs is buggy on 10.5.6. But the ports on the hub will use a different driver and will work.
This will make it work.

I use a mac and I don't have a PC. Moreover I'm french and i have
some difficult to understand...
I summarizes, When i Try to downgrade 3.0 to 2.2 with itunes, I get
a "error 21" (and not 1106) Error message appared at the beginning of the
process and i think that the 2.2 have no time to settle.
So I try to use Quickpwn unsuccessfully (quick don't find my phone)
SO i Try to use Pwage and create a custom 2.2, but when i try to install this custom, Itunes give me this error 21...
Can someone help me with precise Tuto ???
Or can someone register in the official SDK 3.0, It will be very nice...
Downgrade works, but there's one problem...it says the software on the iPhone is too old to restore a backup after you've downgraded. You can change the version number in info.plist but then it says it's corrupt.
Is there any way to restore a 3.0 backup to a phone that's on 2.2.1?
that is just asking for trouble. although now that im back in 2.2.1 i've notice that some things just arent working, i can recieve text messages, but it locks up and times out when i try to send them

Lucky I had a 2.2.1 backup stored away in Windows under previous versions. It's from a few days ago, but it'll do.
