    Default Need Help - iPhone 3G Can't Restore AT ALL, Not even sn0w

    I am thoroughly frustrated a of right now. I purchased an iPhone 3G off eBay and am determined to get it to work. It is stuck in recovery.

    I am running Mac OSX 10.6.5 on my PC (hackintosh) and I have the most recent iTunes installed.

    I have tried comman+restore with every possible firmware just to get errors 21, 1604, and 2001. I have tried every compatible redsn0w firmware and either get stuck at rebooting, 'downloading jailbreak data' or it just goes to a black screen. I've tried the iRecovery commands:

    setenv auto-boot true
    saveenv
    /exit (or fsboot)

    AND

    clearenv 1

    I've cleared all iTunes settings in device configure folder an have even gone through full reinstallation of iTunes.

    The phone's water sensor indicates no water damage and I checked that it was legit with an ATT employee.

    I don't know what to do, and I really hope I didn't waste my money

    Default 3g

    I also purchased one from Ebay and tried everything to get it to jailbreak and unlock. It turned out that someone had tried to put 2g firmware into a 3g iphone and partially succeeded. It even stumped the Genius bar guys in New Orleans. I turned it in for replacement and payed another 199 got a new one and sold it in Thailand for what I had into it so did not lose anything but my time.

    Default

    Hm interesting. Well I suppose my next resort is to move to a new computer running XP, as I am stubborn.

    I can't exactly pay another 199 because I simply don't have the money (I'm 17 without time for a job) so I have to be a little stubborn and keep trying.

    EDIT: Well after going to the Apple store the Genius bar told me I had the most disturbingly messed up iPhone 3G they've ever seen and just gave me a free refurb. w00t!
