    Default 3GS stuck in restore while syncing apps...please help!

    Hello! I just bought a jailbroken/unlocked 3GS on 4.3.3 on 6.15 on ebay...I backed up all my music and apps from my old 3G in itunes, and plugged in the new phone. It was about 3/4ths of the way finished syncing all the apps over to the new phone, when the phone turned off and now it's stuck in restore mode. I've tried TinyUmbrella's "Exit Recovery" option, it just reboots the phone and it boots again in recovery (the screen with the USB cord pointing to the Itunes logo.)

    So then I tried "Set AutoBoot true" in iReb, same thing.

    Now, if I follow the prompts via itunes to "restore," it will erase the JB and unlock, right? I can't have that happen. So, I'm not sure why it kicked into restore mode or how to proceed without losing my JB/unlock. Please help!

    I do think the SHSH blobs are saved in tiny umbrella, but clicking "start TSS server" doesn't do anything. So, then I tried putting the phone is DFU and hitting "Fix Recovery." Phone turned off, and now it doesn't seem to be doing anything, it's just a black screen. Finally got it to reboot, and it's still stuck in restore. Is something like this what I need to do?

    Sorry, kinda a noob and don't really know what to do.

    Custom IPSW is the best solution for this type of problem (however you MUST make your own, downloading pre-made custom IPSW from the internet is illegal and risky).
    Don't ever post a link to pre-made custom IPSW here again (you will be banned for piracy if you do)
