Jailbroken iphone 3GS 4.0.2 stuck in iTunes screen with USB cable
I have an iphone 3GS running 4.0.2 OS jailbroken with jailbreakme.com. A week back when I restarted my phone, it got stuck up in itunes screen showing USB cable. I read through many articles and tried all methods and softwares such as Irecovery, RecBoot, TinyUmbrella, but nothing worked. I thought of restoring it to 4.0.2 using the original IPSW file and that too didn't work as I got 3194 connection error. I am afraid to use the standard restore as it will update the OS to 4.3.3 and don't know if this version can be successfully unlocked ?.
Could you please guide me on what options I have now ?. Thanks a lot.

Get redsnow and put phone in dfu mode then open iTunes and hold shift press restore and select your ipsw file
Upgrade to 4.3.3 but preserve the baseband and u will be able to unlock with ultraslow ... If you don't save the baseband then it is not able to be unlocked unless you update to base band to 6.15.00 and that has it's own warnings and limitations
Personally I would update and keep your current baseband

Seems like your battery is simply not up to pace anymore...i can't see the upgrade causing a distinct and sudden drop off in battery life like you are suggesting, are you sure it wasn't like this before and you're just now paying attention to it because you've had to change some stuff that you've grown so used to over the time you had 4.0.2 (LONG time, lol).
I mean it is a 3GS so you're pushing a couple years now, so the battery may not be in great shape from the get go.

Quick google search yielded this...
...about half way down, this response...
I updated my iphone 4 to 4.3.3. at the same day it came out and had no problems at all. Last Saturday I sync it with iTunes and made some app updates. After that the battery was flat after 5 hours of normal usage. I tried almost all recommendations of this thread, but nothing solved the problem.
Thanks to Giulia I tried to turn off the apple store account and what a surprise, my iphone is back to 1% per hour. Thanks a lot Giulia, you made my day.

Also might be a old app causing this try removing all apps see how it go add them back one at a time till you find the one causing it I mean you did just jump alot of software changes.
