    - try recovery mode instead dfu (power off, hold home and connect to
    computer)
    - try a different usb port
    - try a different computer
    - install itunes new

    - or try to downgrade to 2.x firmware using itunes 8.2 with an original firmware then quickqwn / pwnagetool and then upgrade to 3.1 with pwnagetool

    You can downgrade to 3.0 by shift clicking on the restore button (or option/alt if you are a on a Mac) and browsing to a 3.0 ipsw for your iPhone model.

    Yes. Use Pwnagetool for that.

    I am also having similar problem. My friend upgraded iphone 2g and it got locked,
    now i am not able to activate the phone as i dont have ATT sim. I also cant restore the phone as it gives me only option to activate or eject

    Hey jeh i got it working. try this,
    launch itunes. switch off your iphone, now keeping the home button pressed (the centre button on the phone) plug the usb cable (dont release the home button unless you see a symbol on the phone showing usb cable and itunes logo) This will bring your phone in recovery mode and you will see the restore option.

    Mail me if you still cant get it.

    I hope you know how to downgrade after you see restore button.
