iFail: 3g BB stuck with a twist
Okay, sorry in advance as I am not yet wise in the ways of Apple products or information beyond the iPod.
A friend gave me an older iPhone 3G that was JailBroke but not carrier unlocked. The phone was working fine, if you had AT&T. Knowing I was not on that network he attempted to JB it again and thought he had the iPad BB option checked in redsn0w. Opened Cydia and got ultrasn0w. Didn't carrier unlock. Figured out he didn't have the BB change checked (Doh!).
Put all the required files on a flash drive and I went home. Fired up redsn0w the next day to JB again with the BB 6.whatever. (redsn0w 0.9.5b5-2)
Flashed NOR blah blah got to the screen "unpacking bundles" or something of that nature, the progress bar made it to around 50% then cut off.
I've tried restoring with multiple versions of apple and custom ISPWs. Even tried to run redsn0w again and that says "unable to reconize specified ISPW." I think I pretty much bricked the phone as after everything I seem to do kicks it back in the recovery screen (trying to kick it out with tinyumbrella each time). I'm open to help and suggestions....Thanks in Advance. Yes, I'm special ed with Apple products :-p
