    Default 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/fsck -fy
    /sbin/mount -uw /

    If you wish to boot the system:
    exit

    Oct 28 12:13:49 launchd[13]: 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.
