    Default iphone 2g became a total brick

    Hello everybody,

    first at all, i want to apologize if i am asking a question about a theme that maybe here everybody is a little bit tired, but i wouldnt if i were not losing hope.

    my iphone 2g was upgraded to a custom firmware 3.2.1 totally activated, and jailbroken. I have used this firmware with my own iphone 2g several times and works perfect.

    the issue is that after upgrading my sister iphone 2g with this firmware, everthing worked smoth until the day my sister upgraded the firmware through the automatic itunes update.

    so as you can imagine, the iphone is on DFU mode. My struggle:

    1.- i have tried with other two pcs with windows xp
    2.- i have reinstalled windows xp on one of them
    3.- i have tried itunes 7, 7.5, 8, 9 and 10
    4.- i have tried all usb ports
    5.- i have tried all apps: zipphone, ibrick, etc

    no one of this steps have worked. all different kind of "unspecified error number" like 20, 6 and so on. The phone is locked on the DFU mode (with the arrow).

    its two days reading forums, blogs, google and so on, but no one has worked.

    could someone help me with some trick to unlock my sister iphone?

    i would beg if i could.

    thank you very much in advance and my appologize again if i am reopening again a burned subject.

    there is no 3.2.1 for iPhone only iPad, did you mean 3.1.2?

    These are all iOS 1.x jailbreak tools. They don't work anymore on iOS 3.1.3

    So the screen is black with nothing displayed on the screen but iTunes detects the iPhone? your next comment contradicts this..

    The screen with the arrow is NOT DFU mode.

    Does it say "slide for emergency" in different languages?

    download 3.1.2 IPSW from here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm
    follow this procedure iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using RedSn0w (Windows)

    skip step 2
    guide tells you to supply a 3.1.3 IPSW when redsn0w asks for it, this is wrong. Use the 3.1.2 IPSW you downloaded from the link above.

    This is not a unique question, I've answered the same question at least 3 times this evening.
