iphone 3g frozen
« on: October 23, 2011, 04:51:02 PM »
Hi, I tried to jailbreak my ATT iphone 3g for the first time and there was an install error during the process and now it is stuck with the screen showing the usb cable pointed towards itunes.  I tried doing a hard reset/DFU and after the white apple logo shows up, it always reverts to the same screen with the usb cable. I am using Windows 7 and my itunes does not recognize the device.  Each time I run the DFU process, itunes launches and tries to "contacting the iphone update server" but then it says "cannot contact update server." Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

whew!... i was able to get it out of recovery and had to restore the software via apple.  It's back in its locked state.  Just to get it right, which firmware should I use to unlock my 3g so i can use one of the pay as you go services such as straight talk or simple mobile.

Thanks!
