    What iOS version was the custom IPSW?
    Everything works like a charm... version is 4.2.1. As I told you I have never changed IOS version or BB. The phone originally came with 4.2.1 and I used PwnageTool 4.2.1 for jailbreaking/w activation thus leaving the same IOS and BB. After this JB (enough before 4.3 release) I have clicked in Cydia to save my SHSH (which is not shown in TinyUmbrella). Everything worked fine, but I wanted to give the phone and decided to delete all content, performing Reset (erase all data and settings) which brought me in this situation - endless connect to iTunes recovery mode. I could enter DFU mode, but after every flash/reboot it want back to recovery. On my Mac, where I originally performed JB with PwnageTool and iTunes, it was not possible to restore the IPSW without errors (virgin or custom 4.2.1 - I had no intention of changing versions). I googled and find out that it is worth trying using another machine (suggested by Apple also).
    First attempts on Windows also did not work (could not perform Apple original 4.2.1 IPSW - because of BB signing i suspect, but later I managed to put the IPSW that originally JB my phone and it worked. Missing SHSHs in TinyUmbrella still confuses me.
    BTW, I would prefer if I could flash the original virgin 4.2.1 which would leave the phone in real factory default setting without the JB, but it is obviously not possible, i guess.
