    Question Phone stuck in restore mode

    IPhone 3G. stuck in restore mode. have put it in DFU mode and tried to restore using multiple ipsws. no luck. phone always reboots to pwnage restore image and itunes displays error. tried multiple pcs, macs, downgrading itunes, etc. same thing happens.

    any ideas would be great. the phone is useless at the moment. out of ideas.

    I used Pwnage tool to jailbreak my 3G to 3.1. Everything has been great until I recently synced my music, etc. The phone rebooted and has been stuck in recovery mode ever since (2 days ago).

    iTunes gives me an unknown error (1611) when I try to restore it, it looks like it's working until it reverts back to the steve jobs pic and fails.

    I've tried multiple suggested methods such as different PC; different mac; previous versions of iTunes; pre-3.1 ipsw; tried ...re-jailbreaking with redsnow; blackrain (looked promising with the geohot pic, then flipped back to the restore mode again).

    ...out of ideas. even went to the apple store after giving up but they won't touch it since it's jbroken...
    out of warranty....not good.

    ....HELP?

    Have you held power and home down till it powers off then powered it back on and waited 10 to 30 min for it to revcover?

    I know I got anxious... and thought it was stuck....when I left it alone it did recovery and the phone came back.

    Maybe you can restore with Apple's official firmware.
