Tiny Umbrella not displaying device - 3GS stuck in boot loop
I dropped my iphone 3GS on the floor last weekend, and it went dead.
This is an unlocked 3GS on ipad bb 6.15.
It was unlocked when I bought it.
After much reading, I tried this:
Restore & Update iPhone 3Gs/3G To 4.2.1 On 6.15.00 Baseband - YouTube
Instructions said use redsnOw and use official 4.2, and then use itunes to restore to custom 4.2. All I could get was a 3194 error.
Then tried this:
Dfu loop solution for iphone 3gs - GSM-Forum
This one said to start tiny umbrella, then open redns0w, point it to 4.1. Then attempt to install 4.1 via itunes, when that fails, go back to redns0w and point to 4.3.
This method did not work either.
In my defense, when I first bought the phone I posted (on a different forum) on what I should do to ensure ability to restore and got no response. Nonetheless, no one but myself to blame for where I am at now: stuck in boot loop. When phone is connected to wall charger, or PC, it will display apple icon for several seconds, then go black, repeat, repeat.
TU does not display any device when I use redsnOw to pwnd dfu mode. When phone is in recovery mode, then TU shows a ? with a number. It will also display an ECID number when in recovery mode, but it will not retrieve an SHSH (I had cydia installed on phone)
Now I am told I will have to upgrade to 4.3.5. Which means more reading and researching, which seems to still lead me to having to take a gamble on which method to attempt first.
Tiny Umbrella V 5.00.10
redsn0w V 0.9.6b
itunes V 10.4
Win 7 O/S
here are 2 logs from TU
In TSS mode – 1st attempt to restore in itunes to 4.1.

Maybe I started messing around where I should not have, but I did not know what to try first.
Any help, any advice is much appreciated!
I did not unlock this phone myself, so do not know if cydia was used to unlock. I do know cydia was installed on phone.
What are my options if I do not have my shsh?
