    Default iPhone 3g Problems with Restoring - Won't boot past apple logo

    I purchased an iPhone 3g on craigslist that was stuck not being able to boot past the apple logo as I thought I could fix it. I have tried to update and restore and it appears to be successful but then the iphone still hangs on the apple logo. I have also tried to (option-click) and install a 4.2.1 ipsw that I downloaded online. I have tried the restore from both DFU and Recovery mode but I can't get the phone to boot up.

    iTunes Version: 10.5b112
    iOS: I believe to be 4.2.1
    Platform: Mac OS X Lion
    Last iTunes Restore Log: iPhone Updater Log - Pastebin.com

    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

    Why are you using a beta version of iTunes? You should firstly downgrade to a stable iTunes version.

    Also - you haven't specified where you got the IPSW from, it looks like from the log file that this is a custom IPSW, we don't encourage/recommend that you blindly download pre-made custom IPSW from the net. It's piracy and it also extremely stupid. Make them yourself so you understand/know what is contained within the custom IPSW.

    Quit iTunes
    Locate your hosts file, in Mac OS X this is /etc/hosts and in Windows this is c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    Open the hosts file with Administrator privileges
    Add the following lines to the very bottom of the hosts file:
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    Connect your iPhone to the computer
    Launch iTunes
    Put the iPhone/iPad/iPod into DFU mode by turning the phone off and then holding down the sleep and power button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but hold onto the home button until iTunes tells you that the device is now in recover mode
    Use the iTunes Restore feature as usual with the iOS device
    i did this and it works brilliantly
