Destroyed my iphone, help!
Please help, I have done a very stupid thing. I upgraded my iphone to 1.1.1, unlocked it using anysim 1.1.1.
Everything appeared to be sweet until I tried to connect to itunes. It said could not read from iphone "^1" or something similar. I did a google search of this error it found a forum that said delete everything in /var/root/media as it is likely there is a corruption there, there was also a reply from the original poster who said this fixed their problem. So I connected to the iphone via winscp went into the /var/root/media folder noticed there were alot of folders, confirmed I was in the right folder and nuked the contents. I rebooted the iphone and after awhile of seeing the apple logo it now comes up with
Singleuser boot -- fsck not done
Root device is mounted read-only
If you want to make modifications to files:
/sbin/mount -uw /
If you wish to boot the system:
Oct 28 12:13:49 launchd: can't exec /bin/sh for single user:No such file or directory
If I dock and undock it it will display alot of messages but I dont seem to be able to do anything. Itunes doesnt recognise it now when its connected so can't do a restore, can't connect via winscp either.
I think i've done the Iphone equivalent of del c:\windows\*.* but I dont see how.
Have I just turned my iphone into a paperweight?
Any advice that will get me up and running will be rewarded.
I'm really sorry about that. I hope you can fix it. And next time remember, if it ain't broke....

your phone is OK.
all those messages you saw is the OS trying to do fsck (like a chkdsk on windows/dos).
You can try to play around with unix command line and fix it but if you are not familiar, don't do it.
you mentioned that you upgraded to 1.1.1 - Was your phone a new OTB 1.0.2 and you upgrade/update?. If so (new, out the box), then you can restore the phone back to 1.1.1 via itunes. jailbreak & activate after that. no need to run anysim 1.1 unlock again.
If you are not sure. Ask again before doing anything.
Have you tried putting your phone in restore mode, the connect to itunes and then do a restore?
put it into DFU mode and restore it with iTunes
