    Question unable to restore iPhone 3GS (error 23)

    hi guys!

    I need some help…

    I have abrand new iPhone 3GS, with firmware 3.1.2 original unlocked.

    I'm stuck at the (pin)apple logo loop… If I try to restore, it always end with error 23… Here is the itunes log:

    2009-11-03 19:57:23.000 iTunes[362:10af3]: received tss response
    2009-11-03 19:57:24.000 iTunes[362:10af3]: radio-error = 512
    2009-11-03 19:57:24.000 iTunes[362:10af3]: radio-error-string = 'Communication failure'
    2009-11-03 19:57:24.000 iTunes[362:10af3]: fatal recovery mode radio error
    2009-11-03 19:57:27.000 iTunes[362:207]: iTunes: Restore error 23

    I tried to restore the 3.1.2 firmware using iTunes 9.0.2, 8.0.2 in windows and mac, using DFU and recovery mode, and the same error appears everytime…

    If I use blackra1n RC3, the geohot's logo is showed, stood for a 3-4 minutes, and then the iPhone reboots (and again in the apple logo loop).

    I can use the iRecovery tool, and it works with some commands, but I didn't find it helpfull at all… I run out of ideas…

    Is it possible to access to the filesystem or upload a new baseband using iRecovery??? Is it possible to change the apple boot logo from DFU o recovery mode without using iTunes?

    Obviously, I can't take the iPhone to an Apple Store, because the pinapple logo…

    Thanks for wasting your time on this case…
    John

    Have you tried a different SIM or reseating the SIM card.

    You may be able to flash a NOR only ipsw to get rid of the pineapple.
