    Default Accdentically Jailbreak the Unlock 3G, and Stuck on Apple Logo

    Hi,

    I am new to iPhone, I accidently ran the limera1n on my unlocked iphone 3g, then as I was aware that I have done wrong I disconnected it from my PC while limerain was indicating my iphone was in DFU mode., then I tried limera1n to recover it from DFU mode, but I wasnt able to fix it and it had permanently stuck on apple logo. Then I tried unbricking. Then tired redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 Jailbreaking, with many PC restarts and plug-ins plug-outs of iphone, eventually I was able to complete the process, but in the end after some installations with pineapple cartoon, I again stuck on apple logo. Then I tried redsn0w again to use the option just boot tether.etc. but then I have stick again with a new pineapple logo. How can I go back to normal?

    The first thing you need to do is actually read up here and stop trying to do everything you think might work. If you read or asked you would know that an unlocker can only use Pwnage Tool(Mac) or Sn0wbreeze(Windows) to upgrade an unlocked iPhone. Your second mistake was pulling the plug you already messed up you should have let it finish or fail. Pulling the plug while the file system is being accessed is the easiest way to royally screw things up. What you need to do now is search the web for iPhoneHeat.com and look for Sn0wbreeze for 4.2.1 which is the highest firmware that can run on a 3G. Then follow the instructions make sure that Sn0wbreeze is in Expert Mode and choose the Activate this phone option. Then put the phone into DFU mode and open iTunes. When it recognizes a device in recovery mode hold down your shift key and click restore. Then in the new window point to the custom ipsw you create in Sn0wbreeze and let it reload the phone. When the phone is back to normal post up and I'll give you links to do the unlock.

    I downloaded ipsw here:
    appldnld.apple.com/iPhone4/061-9853.20101122.Vfgt5/iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw

    And using sn0wbreeze 2.2.1 I created custom ipsw with following options:

    Mode was Expert
    Then I selected General
    I clicked background Wallpaper
    And Activate this phone
    And SSH

    And root partition size was by default 800 MB; therefore leave it as it was.

    And I unclicked the customs boot logos.

    Note: Sn0wbreeze never gave me the option whether to install or not to install the Ipad baseband, rather it was indication it never and not will update the baseband.

    I almost restored custom ipsw using pwned DFU mode without any simcard but it stuck in end and itunes indicating "verifying iphone restore", then I waited for an hour but nothing happened, so I put a local sim card (I dont have AT&T or any other US sim) in it, wait again if it finihes, but still itunes was indicating same state.

    Then I use Power and home button to stop this, now itunes indicating my iphone 3g is in recovery mode, it prompt me to restore. Now what I have to do?

    It don't matter if you have a sim or not double check make sure your source Ipsw is the correct version also you can search and download custom ones that have been built make sure iTunes is completely closed while using snowbreeze and don't open till iTunes tells you too it sounds like iTunes is trying to veriy the file with apple so maybe snowbreeze didn't finish all the way
