    I connected it to iTunes ( newest version) the itunes wo'nt recognize the iphone. I did try with a different computer, I got same result.

    DFU RESTORE (probably stolen from Lvcifer)

    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:

    Step One
    Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac or PC.

    Step Two
    Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

    Step Three
    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.

    Thank you Alli! Follow your direction, I already reloaded the firmware 3.1.2 to my phone. Now I have a problem that when I try to jailbreak it using blackra1n RC3 a pop up message says "This application has failed to start because ASL.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

    How do I solve this problem? Please help.

    You probably need to run the iTunes fix for Blackra1n. There's another thread around here somewhere where I attached it to the thread. Try searching for "ihatesn0w" and my name.
