    Default New guy with a dumb problem

    hello folks, Just recently purchased a jailbroken iphone 32g from a friend of my son. I love the phone! it has been working really well while using tmobile and i had no complaints till a small incident.

    Last night specifically, i left my phone plugged into the computer to charge, my son logged on his itunes and did some crazy upgrade, now I understand while being jailbroken, I should NOT upgrade the phone, but he did, simple mistake, in any case, I have tried to do some research and have really come up with nothing. Decided to join this forum because it looks pretty active and while reading the faqs, I have learned quite a few things.

    Unfortunately i am completely stumped on how to fix this thing. All it shows me is a small usb cable trying to connect to an itunes logo. Folks i really need the help. I am in sales right now and my clients contact me through this phone and this could potentially hurt my numbers. Any help or advice would really be appreciated. ( i have pc )

    The description could be either recovery mode or "connect to itunes to activate" they look similar.

    Was the phone software unlocked as well as jailbroken?

    Regardless, on a 3GS that has been accidenatally upgraded to 3.1.3 you are 100% stuck without a SHSH for 3.1.2 or lower. See this thread for details, although you are way too late now. http://www.hackint0sh.org/f203/109567.htm

    Sn0wbreeze is not welcome on this forum, it is semi-warez. All software from ih8sn0w is not recommended here. It will not solve this person's problem either.
