    Unhappy iphone not going beyond itunes restore HELP

    Hi PLEASE HELP!!

    Cydia had not installed well when i had it jailbroken the first time (should've left it to the pros) so I did my tuts online and finally settled on this link to use redsn0w:
    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.0.x Using RedSn0w (Windows)

    but this is the third time I've tried to restore my iphone 3G through itunes and the restore + redsn0ow package downloaded from this link but it's just not happening. It gets stuck on about 75% of the job on the itunes screen during the restore process, but on the iphone it shows the white apple and a finished white line...I have rebooted my comp, also freaked and disconnected the iphone cable once...No luck.


    and btw, since I unplugged it coz i freaked, when i plug it back on intunes i get a message saying itunes has detected an iphone in restauration mode you have to complete the operation blah blah so i cliked on ok and restarted the shift+restore process... no luck
    And the iphone no longer shows up in itunes. Not this time at least. it's been plugged on for about half an hour now and still restoring...

    have I been buggered by apple??

    Please tell me what I need to do!! :-(

    Do I need to uninstall itunes? I think I'm on itunes 9 or something. Is that the problem?

    Should I download 7.0 then? any idea?

    Have you tried to restore your iPhone in DFU mode? http://www.hackint0sh.org/f137/54082.htm

    What OS was it running before you started the restore process?

    iTunes version 7 will NOT help. iTunes 8.2 is the lowest you can downgrade to and still restore iPhone OS 3.0 sucessfully.

    Try the restore on a different machine. It is important you use DFU mode to get your iPhone back.
