Restore/Recover Jailbroken iPhone problem Restore/Recover Jailbroken iPhone problem
I recently jalibroke/unlocked my 1st Gen iPhone with 2.21 firmware - and made the same mistake as post - 168354 (can't link to it - I'm too much of a noob here.)
Basically, I chose from the "general" app to Reset all Settings - (the one that takes around an hour).
Now when I restart it just gets stuck with the apple/pineapple screen and the iPhone won't show up in iTunes (so I can restore the modded firmware.)
I can't seem to get it into DFU mode - when I release the power button, I get russian Steve Jobs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
10.5.6 (with the iousbfamily315.4.1 installed) iTunes 8.1

This is a pain (been there done that).
It will take you a few tries to get it into DFU mode. I spent an hour trying to get it working. You need to try to get it into that mode and then plug it into the computer as fast as you can. This is what I had to do.

Bricked iPhone... with damn Pineapple & Steve Jobs (in Russian)... cannot DFU at all
I was given this phone and I thought it would be an easy task to fix it! Hell no! I've spent hours.... to no avail. The phone cannot be DFU'd at all! It can be turned off by pressing the power button and the home button, but the phone will not be recognized by the computerS. I have tried it in 3 diff. computers already. Argh! Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this??

Uninstall iTunes and then reinstall it.
Just checking you're putting your iPhone into DFU mode properly - hold power for three seconds, keep hold of power and press home for 10 seconds, release power and keep home pressed for up to 30 seconds or until your computer recognises a new device.
