Hi guys, please help me...
yesterday, i tried to jailbreak my iphone 3g 3.1.2, 5.11.07 firmware with BlackRa1n with window 7 ultimate 32 bit.
the mistake i made was, when the step i click on make it rain and wait for the iphone to shut down... and after it shut down press lock and home button instaneously.. i didn't do that properly, instead, i press on lock and home button right after i press make it rain...after that.,..my phone never turns on again.
i tried the following methods:
plug it in to the computer with itunes open
charge via the charger

Sounds like your phone may be bricked. If it doesn't respond to be being plugged into the charger or computer, it most likely is dead. If the phone is under warranty, take it to the Apple store for possible replacement. If it doesn't turn on, they have no way to see if it was jailbroken and could replace it. If it does turn on, just take it back and go home. This is what you get for trying to jailbreak. Most of the time it works, sometimes it doesn't. It happens. You're not the first person to have it fail and most certainly won't be the last.

Try the steps listed below, but make sure that you have downloaded the latest version of iTunes before attempting to do this.
Put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac or PC.
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
After exactly 10 seconds, release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until iTunes pops up with a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
The iPhone screen will remain black.
NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!
Download from iTunes and install the latest firmware (3.1.2/7D11) and install it. Then, when it's done, simply either restore it from a previously created backup, or set it up as a new iPhone and re-sync all of your stuff back onto it.
