    So maybe this isn't thread-worthy, but I think it's a good tip.

    Although the pwnapple is cool, and the steve jobs restore screen is hilarious, I think it's a good idea to use pwned firmware without the dev team's graphics. Kind of a bit of insurance in case you get stuck at the boot screen or whatever, like what seems to have happened to a few people. That way you can take it back to the Apple Store without fear of them knowing it was hacked.

    On a side note, One time after I had restored to a pwned firmware, my touch got a little screwy and was stuck at the boot apple with the SWOD. Actually, first, while it was syncing it was at the lock screen and the battery had a SWOD in the middle of it and I couldn't slide to cancel. So I knew something was up. I got a couldn't write to device error, unplugged, put it into restore mode, and restored with my pwned fw and all was right in the world.

    I say this just so people now that Pwnage, like all Jailbreaks, can go a little funky. But, like always, you can always put it into restore mode and you're fine (with the possibility of a couple exceptions).

    DON"T FREAK OUT if you have an issue. You will be okay!

    It at least adds a layer of "safety" to the whole process.

    This is exactly what I was thinking! I'm going to do that, and insist that everyone I know does the same.
