    Just take the official firmware you downloaded to jailbreak with in the first place, DFU and shift-click on restore to select the origional firmware.

    See if this works.

    Wherever you saved it.. Its the one that you select in QF to be customized. Assuming you still have it. Otherwise try google or youtube for official apple 2.2.1 firmware.
