Modified QuickPwn [temporary 2.2 solution]
I was looking all over for a method to activate my 2.2 iphone, and saw someone posted a "method" (forcing quickpwn to use the 2.1 file), but when i attempted that method quickpwn kept crashing when iTunes tried to restore the phone.
To ease the pain, and rather frustrated, I just patched over QuickPwn's good/bad firmware detection and repacked it.
The QuickPwn EXE supplied originally by the DevTeam is just a self extracting 7zip archive (i'm shortening this down for lazy purposes). It temporarily extracts the encrypted files to a directory, and launches the true quickpwn executable. After quickpwn is closed, the original extractor wipes out the temp files and your left a happy jailbroken/unlocked customer.
What your getting here is a RAR of the extracted files, with the pre-patched executable.
I just tested the activation / jailbreak on my iphone (fresh restore to 2.2) and it worked without any problems.
Simply go into 2.2 (upgrade/restore/whatever) and when choosing the firmware file choose the 2.1 firmware file, then just proceed as usual.
You can grab the file here: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?5yzhn5nzj11
if anyone wants feel free to redistribute, do as you like.
if anyone has any further questions feel free to ask :)
just incase, here are the MD5 sums of the files im supplying (for redistribution purposes)
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A "HACKED" UP SOLUTION. AS REPORTED, THE ACTIVATION WORKS 100%. THE JAILBREAK WILL PLACE THE CYDIA ICON ON YOUR DEVICE, BUT WILL NOT BE FUNCTIONAL (THIS IS BECAUSE IT IS NOT A TRUE JAILBREAK AS OF YET, PLEASE WAIT FOR THE DEV-TEAM TO JAILBREAK THE ACTUAL 2.2).
again, please understand this is a hacked up solution i came up with to bypass activation NOT for jailbreaking.
