    Default iPhone 3G Recovery Loop - Need fix

    Hey,

    I've acquired a used iPhone 3G, but when I went to use it it was stuck in a constant boot loop. I managed to semi fix that by going into recovery mode. Now when I try to restore the phone to any firmware (3.0 and up, including 4.0 beta - I registered as a developer), I see a progress bar on the iPhone, then it resets and I get Error 9.

    I've tried different USB ports, different computers (Macs and PCs), different firmwares, different cables, uninstalling & reinstalling iTunes (even different versions), both recovery and DFU modes, and even tried blackra1n with 3.1.2 and nothing seems to fix it. Here are the details of the device:

    iTunes version: 9.1.1.12 (but also tried other versions, including 8.0.2)
    iPhone OS version: unsure but trying to restore to any version to get working.
    Platform: OS X
    OS Version: 10.6.3

    I do not know if this iPhone was jailbroken before I received it, but judging from the personality of the guy I got it from, I'd say chances are it wasn't.

    iTunes update log:
    2010-05-19 11:33:33.000 iTunes - Anonymous - Smw5Xzbc - Pastebin.com

    Here is what I get from iRecovery (PS: I can't seem to get any commands in iRecovery to work, other than reboot):
    iRecovery - Recovery Utility f - Anonymous - SYhqHZxR - Pastebin.com

    Extra info: I even tried doing a firmware restore using xcode and same thing happens - progress bar on iphone then it restarts, Xcode gives me "NAND communication error"

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I may have a solution for you. You have the "waiting for NAND" problem. Need to get a pwnagetool custom IPSW and then you need to replace the ramdisk with a tweaked one.

    sn0wbreeze will probably work (we don't support sn0wbreeze here as the author has demonstrated repeatedly that he can't be trusted or always truthful)

    I'll try using a custom ipsw file, but how do I replace the ramdisk and where do I find a tweaked one? Thanks for your help.

    So far still stuck with same problem. Have gotten a little further with Olethros's help (will post pastebin later) but still stuck with same problem.

    Anyway to wipe the phone and start with a clean slate, or will that even help?

    I haven't been able to help much more with this. The fixes I have tried have not worked.

    One suggestion from msft.guy was to try restoring to iOS4GM (pwnagetool/custom IPSW).
