    Default iPhone won't turn on anymore! possibly bricked

    I recently bought a new iphone which, surprisingly, had 1.0.2 on it (it has version 03.14.08_G on the versions screen.) I followed the instructions on this site http://iphone.unlock.no/#restore-firmware-files which worked well for me previously (although the other phone i unlocked was a 1.1.1) When I tried to restore this iphone to 1.1.1, it wouldn't find the 1.1.1 firmware i downloaded (i just had it on the desktop- wasn't sure exactly if I was supposed to import it to itunes somehow). I then started downloading 1.1.2 accidently so I pulled the plug on the iphone. Now it doesn't start up (I didn't think it was syncing, just downloading the firmware.) is it toast? it won't turn on at all....

    see if you can hold down power + home at the same time. When the apple appears, let go of the power & home.

    If that does not work. hold down power + home. When the apple appears, let go of power and continue to hold down home until it puts the phone in recovery mode. From there, plug phone to computer and itunes should detect the phone in recovery mode and you can do a restore from there.

    download 1.0.2 fw to your computer. shift-click restore in step above and select 1.0.2 fw.

    good luck
