    No - just hang in there it will take a few minutes on the second "restore from backup" - or dont do the second restore. Just do 1 restore from back up. then when it asks you to do it again. just quit it or disconnect the iphone. fire it all up again and set up as new phone

    When you say "it will keep all the data", does this include the call and sms history and all the other things i'm keeping for about half a year?

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    mine kept the recent call list, sms and photos. i did 1 restore to back up that went quick - but then it asked me again - so i did it a the second time and it took very long but i left it until it was finished. it was almost as if it had hung. after that it asked again and i did set it up as new phone and just synced with replacing the"info" tab in itunes. and the music etc. I know it sounds bogus but thats why i was surprised to see that it was all there . HOWEVER i cant gurantee anything as i have only done it once.

    Thanks for your quick answer. I can confirm that behaviour... i had the same "problem" and did the restore twice. The third time i just hit "set up as new phone" and it did keep all the history stuff.

    By the way, i did backup all the data in /private/var/mobile/Library/ via sftp just in case that setup as new phone went wrong. But i didn't... everything is there.

    At the moment it's synching the media files just fine...

    Best regards

    What I'd like to know is why some people are experiencing this problem, while others are not. Has anyone tried rebuilding a custom firmware file with PwnageTool from an official source and restoring (non-DFU the second time) to see if the problem recurs?

    Default its got to be itunes 7.7!

    I was on Pwnage2.0.1 with Firmware 2.0 and it was working perfect on iTunes 7.6 (???) or the one before current (7.7).... then I upgraded to the latest iTunes (7.7), and that happened, yesterday, then Pwnage2.0.2 came out, Pwn'd the iPhone and I'm still having this problem.

    Same exact situation happened to my roomate, with an iPhone 3G.
    It's got to be related to iTunes 7.7

    Did the copy of PwnageTool 2.0.1 that you downloaded have a .zip file extenion or .bz2? .zip is supposed to have problems.

    PwnageTool_2.0.2.tbz was the file I downloaded, from the mirror in the iphone dev team's blog directly...

    I just downgraded itunes version and everything is back to normal.

    I just encountered the same problem.
    Pwned 2.0.1, restored the custom ipsw with itunes, restored my iphone backup. the progress bar stopped at some time and after about 5 minutes my iPhone booted, iTunes detected it again and offered to restore the data again.
    I created a new one which I'm synching right now.

    I used a sparkle-updated Pwnagetool, iTunes 7.7.1.

    I hope there are no other problems involved now...

    I downloaded a new version of PwnageTool, checked the SHA, rebuilt a custom firmware package, and redid a DFU restore. Same problem! At least this time I knew to choose "new iPhone" for the second restore.

    I think that this is a problem with PwnageTool, as I couldn't find any complaints on the Apple discussion forums.
