My situation goes like this... I had a normally working Iphone 1.1.4 without any possible-to-corrupt-your-iphone apps installed. One day i pressed the sleep button to take a glimpse at the time and the iphone woke up but freezed. Power off didnt work so i had to restart it. The thing is that although it restarted.. it never boot but hang on the apple logo forever.
Since then i tried every possible solution to make it boot again but with no chances. I tried DFU restores in all possible firmwares, every action related to the bootloader and the baseband but still nothing. The restores complete without any error but still iphone is not booting. I also tried manually booting it through iBricker, Ziphone and all the other tools but still no chance.
I drove me crazy that I couldnt get a decent error message in order to know what it's going on so i thought trying to boot in verbose mode would be a good idea.
I used ibooter and iphone in recovery mode and issued a boot-args=-v setenv command and then restarted. The iphone rebooted in verbose mode but it gets the the point where some errors pop out.. So it goes like
Then mDNSResponder tries to start but it says "Could not find account name "_mdsnresponser". Running as root.

Finally the 2 last statements before iphone hangs:
It seems like there are some issues going on with the filesystem (?). Maybe there's a way to execute a filesystem check/repair on the phone?
ipif_ctl_connect: creating unit ip1
ipif_ctl_connect: creating unit ip2
Ibooter commands related to filesystem or nvram return "permission denied" error.
