    Got a friend with a 3GS who is now booting up to a white screen. He said he has performed a Restore and still the same thing. He was at OS 4.2.1 if it helps at all. Hes rebooted and attempted Restores.

    Any other ideas?

    Was it an attempt to JB the phone? Redsn0w?

    Take it to the Apple store...even out of warranty they are well known for replacing the iPhone's if the issue isnt something the customer caused (water damage, 3rd party screen repair, etc)...if the phone is fine and it just randomly started doing this, i don't see any reason why the apple store wouldn't help as much as they could...

    Thats the next option - Apple store is a good drive for him thats why I posted here first to see if there was home remedies.

    He's already gone through all the things we'd suggest here...since it was not a jailbreak incident, i'd say something fouled up that would prob require the phone to be replaced (if it wasnt damaged before hand by water or whatever, that is).

    Download iOS 4.1 from Softpedia and do a manual restore of the .ipsw file
