[Problem] [Solved] Bricked iPhone
Tried to Pwnage (2.2.1) a non-pwned 16GB 3G but got the 1600 error. Tried recovery mode and got error 21, then it was stuck in recovery mode. eventually got it into DFU and restored to factory (2.1) and tried again (a couple of times) but it would always fail with error 21. re-installed itunes and got it to take the pwnage restore (Yey he says!) but my daughter started playing with the computer while restoring and got error 9. Tried Pwnage a couple of times but it would fail on error 21, or 9 (if it actually started to pwn.)
SO, after multiple tries, got it to take another fresh 2.1. Then tried quickpwn (2.2) (Gave up on future unlock). Quickpwn finished and said it would re-boot and leave it alone. Pineapple appears (no spinner) and just sits there--45 min later we give up, unplug from the Mac (original Intel Macbook - black) and it won't even turn off. Only thing that shows up is the pineapple. with lots of pushing we can get into DFU but itunes says it can not communicate and it never shows up.
Any ideas? (sad, sad!)

Update: Finally got the phone into recovery mode (hold the home button longer!) on another machine (new alum macbook) with newly downloaded 2.2 ipsw and SUCCESS! Got it back to factory 2.2. After fretting we tried one more time; first inserted a usb hub between macbook and the iphone and ran Quickpwn 2.2 -- YES, it worked. Had not seen the running pineapple before.
Consensus among others was that the downloaded original 2.2 ipsw used in our first pwnage was bad.
Lessons: Keep trying, including different machines and re-download the ipsw. I also think we were helped by reverting to factory firmware when things went bad.
