[Problem] Unable to restore iPhone
I was wondering if someone may be able to help me ( well my nephew actually)
He's only 17 years old and he has saved his pocket money for like a year literally to afford an iphone. Now being the simple boy he is, he has tried to jailbreak it and messed it all up and so he has called on his uncle to try and save his @ss
This is the problem.
Iphone 3G 8GB. We think that he upgraded to 2.2.1 then used QuickPWN on Win to jailbreak.
Now the phone is in recovery mode and the simpleton that he is he didnt realise he installed the pineapple boot logo and steve blurting in russian recovery mode caption.
Now the problem being I can't restore it for the life of me!
I have an iphone 3g too which is jailbroken but never had any of these problems.
Tried DFU mode, it's fine, Itunes picks the phone up but just serial number no models or anything else and tells me it needs restoring.
When I try to restore I get Error Code 6 ( Recovery mode or DFU)
No matter what I do always error code 6. Funny thing is that if I use DFU mode i get a white screen first.
Now the thing is, I notice when it is preparing for restore the device has the apple logo come up with the status bar, the status bar starts and then the phone just reboots and I am back to being stuck looking at russian steve again
Does anyone know how I can overcome this issue. Someone here must have some idea. Many Many Thanks for reading this. I really really hope I can save this little guy's iphone. I will give whoever helps me resolve this $100 paypal immediately!

I forgot to mention. i am highly technical and have already tried restoring on several machines.
xp, vista, win server 2008, mac osx leopard ( without 10.5.6 update),
What happens is the restore processs starts the phone resets with the Apple logo but then as soon as the status bar comes up on the phone ( to show progress) it just reboots and then I get error 6 on the computer.
I really need to find someone who can communicate with this phone on a lower level than iTunes.
There must be someone out there who can help me, the phone turns on it is just always in restore mode. I can't even for quickpwn 2.2-5 as it doesnt recognise the phone is in restore or DFU mode, it is just at the start screen, one possible angle i thought of was running the manul process of quickpwn but don't know how I could do that?
If i can get past the initial screens on quickpwn and initiate a restore from QuickPWN it may just work.
If someone thinks they can help and would like to talk please send me a private message and we can chat using messenger or skype or something
