    Unhappy [1.1.4][Solved] "unknown error (2005)"

    Hi all, I think i might have bricked my phone! Last night i was installing some new stuff on installer (I can't recall exactly what apps i installed [but none of them was from an untrusted source], since when i quit installer the phone displayed "setting language" with the round wait sign and stayed that way for a long time), after a few minutes it began vibrating randomly, so i decided to turn off the phone!
    It wouldn't turn off so i had to reset it using the home and on/off button.
    It switched off, but when i tried to switch it back on, all I got was the apple sign, it wouldn't start!
    I connected it to the wall socket, planning on leaving it that way all night and see if it started, and the vibrating started again!
    I left it all night trying to start, not charging so i wouldn't get the annoying vibrating.
    This morning it still hadn't started, i entered it into DFU mode and tried to restore it on iTunes, but i got an "couldn't restore iphone. unknown error (2005)" which i hadn't seen before!
    I can't manually restore it or do anything with it since now it won't even turn on, no light no apple logo, nothing. And ZiPhone says I need to restore it using iTunes!

    Can anyone help me please or give me some info? I was running firmware 1.1.3 and tried to restore to all firmwares and got the same error
    I loved my phone


    UPDATE: I managed to get iTunes to recognize it, and apparently, the phone was with 0Kb free space, and that was the problem... I free'd up some space and managed to (after some work and trial and error) to restore it to an older firmware, unlock it, getting it back on 1.1.4 and unlocking again. I lost everything i had inside (only notes, i'd say, the rest was synce'd on my mac) but now have a fully functional phone again
