    Default Bricked iphone needs urgent help!!

    I had a jailbroken iphone with 1.1.1 fw. Today, I decided to upgrade it to fw 1.1.3.
    What I did was the following:

    1. I first upgraded it to fw 1.1.2, and jailbroke it.
    2. Then used the soft-upgrade to fw1.1.3 in Installer.app.
    3. So far, everything seemed all fine.
    4. Installer.app notified me there is an new version of Installer.app. So I went ahead to update it. Suddenly my phone crashed and never came back.

    Now the phone is in such a weird state:
    1. It shows the screen of connecting to itunes and making emergency calls.
    2. Itunes says the phone has problem, and needs to be taken to an apple store. It does not even let me to restore or anything.
    3. I can receive calls, and that's all.

    BTW, the phone is with ATT, and it was just jailbroken. I was using iTunes 7.5 when I did all above. Then I upgraded it to 7.6 to try my luck, but no difference -- no restore either.

    I am not sure what I can do now. Please help!!!

    do a complete restore to 1.1.3 and then activate it again.
    If that works, then do the 1.1.3 jailbreak again by going back to 1.1.1 and then upto 1.1.2 and then the DEV 1.1.3 JB

    Thanks for your reply.
    How can I do a complete restore? now Itunes does not show the restore or update button, instead, it just says I need to go to an apple store.

    I found the way to restore it.
    Hold the home and power button for more than 15 seconds, and force the phone into the recovery mode.
    Then I used itunes to restore it to fw 1.1.3
