jailbroke 3g, phone icon gone, and error in itunes prevents restore
I searched the threads and couldn't find anything similar, but here is my problem: Today I tried to jailbreak my phone (3g, OS 4.01) using redsn0w. I followed the instructions and used the correct ipsw, and had the phone updated to that ipsw as well.
The jailbreak worked except now along my home page the phone icon is gone so I can't make calls. When I receive calls my phone rings but when I answer there is no connection. I also can't get the 3g to work with any of my apps. Facebook doesn't update, etc. But it will let me text, so that's about all the phone does at this point.
Lastly when I've gone into iTunes to try and restore it to it's original version, iTunes gives an error. I'm using a Mac. Any suggestions??
Your problem is NOT unique.

You require a soft-shsh to restore any iOS 4.0 version now. Apple only signs iOS 4.1 SHSH requests (and 4.1 cannot be jailbroken or unlocked right now)
As you are on a 3G, download iOS 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 from here http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm and option-click restore in iTunes
Then follow the procedure below to restore iOS 4.0 jailbroken
