Hey folks -
Just got an iPhone 3G 8GB this morning, and being the everloving tinkerer, I decided to try my hand at Jailbreaking it. With that said, keep in mind I lack most basic knowledge when it comes to this procedure, and while I've been reading non-stop about it, I may be overlooking something.
I'm following the video tutorial for Jailbreaking with windows @:
I've followed the steps up to where the iPhone reboots itself.
Things to note:
I do not have iTunes opened when I'm doing this.
I started the process with my iPhone on.
QuickPwn hangs with "Wait for your phone to connect in recovery mode..." in bold. It never moves down the list of steps.
However...the iPhone DOES reboot into recovery mode, as I hear the windows chimes for disconnect and reconnect of hardware, and the phone is stuck with the words "iTunes" and the picture of the plug on the screen.
If I start iTunes at this point, it tells me it's detected an iPhone attached in recovery mode, and from there I continue to restore it and shut down QuickPwn.
Anyone have any advice where I'm going wrong in this process? Thanks!
