    Default Urgent help needed! is my iphone dead :( ???

    hi guys i have a serious problem, i think my iPhone is dead i have looked everywhere but can't find a solution.

    My problem is i have an iPhone 3gs that was on 4.3.5. the warranty was up so i decided to jailbreak it, so first of all i attempted to downgrade it i kept getting a load of errors in iTunes until finally it worked when i put it in pwned dfu using redsn0w. It restored but ended up back stuck in dfu. i tried fix recovery and it didn't work. tried a few other things and eventually it came to life by telling redsn0w to "just boot" so it showed a pineapple picture then came on and was on 4.3.3 but wasn't jailbroken and had no cydia. so then i used redsn0w to jailbreak it. it when through the jailbreak process then came up with the pineapple with a blue loading bar underneath. the loading bar got to about 1/3 of the way through then the phone went off. it was stuck back in dfu again so i told red snow to just boot again. the phone came on and cydia was there. i locked the phone and made the baby his dinner picked the phone up and there was nothing on the screen. i couldnt turn the phone on and holding home and sleep did nothing. i used my girlfriends phone to ring my phone and it rang but the phone made no noise. plugging it in to the wall for an hour did nothing either. now this morning i tried again. i can actually get the phone in to dfu but if i try to restore i get 1600 error in iTunes and if i try to restore in pwned dfu iTunes just hangs on preparing iPhone for restore. if i try anything in redsn0w it hangs on waiting for iPhone reboot or something and if i exit recovery in tiny umbrella i get a white screen for 10 mins then it goes off. i have tried everything! please help!!!!

    ifaith pulled it out of this mode once and i booted it tetherd and it came on and did exactly the same as last night. now ifaith wont pull it back again.

    i can not restore the phone in this state as it hangs in pwned dfu on preparing iphone and in normal dfu i get error 1600 as stated above

    Unfortunately, the steps you've taken may have left your device in an unusable state until you do a full restore from a stock .IPSW. Based on the information provided, it's possible you have mixed jailbreaks for the wrong versions which left your phone in an unusable and unrecoverable state. To help, you'll need to provide us a little more info:

    1) Do you have any SHSH on file? If so, what iOS revisions do you have on file?
    2) Do you rely on an unlock for your phone service?

    You should never restore in Pwned DFU mode unless you are restoring a custom .IPSW -- it's not a replacement for DFU mode, it provides different functionality and really should only be used when the tools require it. You should not attempt to restore a standard .IPSW with Pwned DFU mode.

    Let us know and we'll try to help.

    The odds are, if you don't have SHSH, you'll need to do a stock restore from iTunes in either recovery or DFU mode (but not Pwned DFU mode), and if you want to be running 4.x, you need to do this ASAP as the signing window for 4.3.5 will be closing soon, as iOS 5 is released in a few hours...

    lol i stated many times that i COULD NOT RESTORE THE PHONE but i guess it went unnoticed. anyways ifaith did the trick. i tried getting it to get my blobs but it failed but hung on a white screen for ages but this time it was dimmed so i new from the last time i was sorted this time but instead of doing the stupid thing this time and booting it tethered using redsn0w like i did 3 days ago which screwed it again, i let iTunes restore it to 4.3.5 as i don't want jailbreak anymore as iOS 5 is out now so I'm rocking again. so for anyone out there stuck what i did was use faith 1.3.2 and get it to try and get your blobs from your device but it fails. if it hangs on a white screen the goes black again when it fails keep trying until it takes about half hour and the white screen goes dim then fails. if it goes dim for half hour then fails your in luck. jus let iTunes restore it naturally without jailbreak. trust!! it took me 3 days of doing it over and over again but I'm back in business!

    Yeah, I read what you posted, I replied specifically to it .

    In either case, I'm glad you got this fixed and thanks much for the final post explaining the steps, now if anyone else has the same issue they'll find this thread and hopefully be able to dig it out like you did. It's good to know that iFaith can be used in situations like this to get the phone to a restorable state.

    Agreed -- I never would have thought to use iFaith at any of those steps, so it's really serendipitous that you tried. I can't think that any of the other mods would have recommended it either, it's really good to know it can solve that kind of problem.
