    Default Spirit THEN BlackSn0w = Bricked Phone/phone not recognized by computer (I read FAQ)

    So I installed the Spirit Jailbreak which worked perfectly. I then installed Blacksn0w to unlock the phone. While Blacksn0w was installing it started to hang for a long long time so I did a hard reset. Now the phone is stuck at the Apple screen and if I press and hold sleep/middle button it just turns off for a second then goes back to the Apple screen.

    I did this on a 32 GB iPhone 3GS with a user updated 3.1.3 not sure about the baseband or any of that info.

    The main problem I'm having is I can't even try and troubleshoot anything because my computer isn't recognizing the phone at all. If I look in the Apple system profiler under the USB tab I don't see anything related to my iPhone. If I open up iTunes it doesn't see my phone and if I open up an app such as blackra1n or Spirit it just says "waiting for device"

    Any advice on what I can/should do here? I would REALLY appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Old or new bootrom 3GS?

    Blacksn0w is NOT supported on baseband 05.12.01

    You need blacksn0w RC2 to use with baseband 05.11.07 on OS 3.1.3

    You need to force the iPhone into recovery mode then use a modified version of redsn0w that disables CommCenter

    Thanks for the help. The problem was I wasn't able to force the device into recovery mode no matter what I did. (Maybe I was doing something wrong?) anyways apple just gave me a new phone (lol) so now I have a 3GS with
    3.1.3 (7E18) factory installed on it and Firmware 05.12.11

    Before I start poking around again, is there a solution to soft unlocking this guy yet? I've been doing research but I'm having difficulties finding a straight answer.

    Thanks so much
