Can't restore (tried DFU, iTunes, Xcode, QuickPwn, redsn0w, ziPhone, iRecovery)
My 2G iPhone will connect fine to iTunes and go through the restore process properly, however upon rebooting the "Connect to iTunes" screen comes back up. This happens whether I restore from DFU or Restore Mode or use iTunes or Xcode. I've tried restoring to 3.0, 2.2.1, and a custom 3.0 ipsw.

I feel like I've exhausted every avenue to restore this phone, but I'm willing to try just about anything at this point.

build-version = "iBoot-596.24"

P boot-path = "/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/kernelcache.s5l8720x"

Thanks so much for helping.
Once the connect to itunes appear run redsn0w and let it hactivate for you.
redsn0w finishes and says "Done!" but the device still shows "Downloading Jailbreak Data..." with an Activity Spinner going indefinitely.
For me redsn0w worked for more 4 or 5 minutes after saying Donne in the PC.
If not restore again to 3.0 and then run redsn0w again.
What kind of OS do you have on your computer? If windows 64bits some folks had a problem with that. Try also to run redsn0w on another PC.
Do you leave it plugged in to the computer while it's working or does it not matter?
I'm running Leopard 10.5.7, I'll try it on a Windows PC if it doesn't work this time.
Thanks for your suggestions cofi! I'll let you know if it works.
I kept it plugged to the PC.
Keep us posted.
Switched to a Windows XP computer, tried to restore to 3.0 in iTunes and I got a 1604 error. redsn0w still gets stuck on the spinner.
I've had this problem with redsn0w for a couple of 2G iPhones that I've used. Run redsn0w with the correct IPSW and bootloaders and keep the iPhone connected to the computer obviously. Don't open any other applications or do anything else with your computer in the meantime... if it gets stuck on that "downloading data" screen, just let it keep running. Eventually - sometimes even after 10 minutes - it SHOULD reboot itself and the iPhone should present the display that you need to utilize iTunes to restore. Restore the iPhone, and try again. Hope that works...
Everything goes fine until I connect it to iTunes and restore (after redsn0w). iTunes does its thing and then it reboots back to the Cable plugging into the iTunes icon.
Is it possible to do irreparable damage where no program can recover the phone?
Yes it is. It's called briking the phone. But redsn0w won't do that.

1. Restore to OS 3.0
2. Once the phone it's on emergency calls run redsn0w
3. Open iTunes as treat the phone as new
4. Sync your stuff to the iphone
5. install ultrasn0w (if you need it)
