    Default HELP Phone wont stop rebooting

    I was trying to upgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 and I messed up.

    I don't know what happened but it seems that trying to do this following instructions I somehow managed to *(&&* up the phone.

    It will not stop rebooting.

    the little thing spins to 3 oclock then starts again at the apple screen.

    I think I bailed to early from the jailbreak.

    Itunes won't even recognize the phone and I can't shut it off.

    You have to restore your phone.
    I experienced the reboot problem too when I was jailbreaking an OTB 1.1.2 restored to 1.1.1.

    Where were you when it messed up? I assumed that you messed up after upgrade to 1.1.2.

    Connect to iTune, press Power + Home until the screen goes blank and release Power but keep pressing Home. iTune should ask you to restore.
    If not, repeat the steps (i.e. press Power + Home...)
    Restore 1.1.2 and start again.
    Note: you will loose your content after a restore.

    I'm assuming you forgot to run oktoPREP, which can be found in the installer. If you didn't run it, your phone won't updated. So what you should do is restore back to 1.1.1, jailbreak 1.1.1, and then through the Installer.app, install oktoPREP, connect your phone to iTunes, and click update. The update will complete sucessfully, and you'll have 1.1.2.

    My site's readers always have this problem when they used the old iBrickr.

    The reason why it keeps rebooting could that comCenter service is unload and you need to trigger that one again.
