    If you have a PC:

    Music > iTunes > Software Updates

    You need to update to the firmware you want to jailbreak through iTunes before hand. So if you're looking to jailbreak Firmware 2.2, you first need to update to Firmware 2.2 in iTunes and then run QuickPwn.

    If the iPhone already had 2.2 installed when you got it, you won't have the .ipsw file on your computer, you'll have to download it.

    i just did this yesterday. my iphone came with 2.2 already installed, so i didnt have to update it. download this file and save it to your desktop. when quickpwn asks you for the file, browse to your desktop and use this. it needs the original firmware for jailbreaking because it goes into recovery mode.

    this is the direct download link to 2.2 (save it to your desktop when you click it) http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite...0081120.Pt5yH/iPhone1,1_2.2_5G77_Restore.ipsw

    its from this site http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/IPhone_Firmware_Download_Links

    hope this helps.

    **** im guessing your talking about an iphone 3G. if your talking about iphone 1st gen, get it from the second link i gave u*****
