    hey guys i have been really struggling to sort out this iphone 2g

    all of a sudden, it had cleared my messages and reset itself and now all i get is the screen with the itunes icon & iphone cable.....

    i cant restore it!!!!....i have tried on 3 different computers and used 3 different cables.....i always get error (14) - cannot restore iphone or something like that.....

    i have no idea wat to do now....apparently error 14 is a USB problem.....but surely all 3 of my less than a year old laptops & pc's do not have faulty usbs.....3 on each computer.....

    now wat happens is that it constantly loops between the apple icon and the connect to itunes screen......every 5mins or so, the screen goes blank and then the connect to itunes screen comes up.....

    i have tried this on firmware 3.1.3 & 3.1.2, and i can never restore it........funny thing is, is i have another iphone that has been restored & jailbroken on 3.1.2 and the exact same computer......so im really strugglin as to y this is happening??

    like i said the phone just cleared all my msgs and then all of a sudden the phone reset itself and all i got was the connect to itunes screen.....no apps have been recently installed & the phone was not even connected to the computer.....it was just next to me doing nothin & BOOM!!

    plz help me guys!!

    Have you tried DFU-Mode? And using the USB's on the back of your PC.

    i have just put it into dfu mode now and trying to recover!

    wat i did was switch the phone off using the power + home button together until the screen switched off and then plugged into the pc....opened itunes and then pressed the power + home button until itunes picked up the iphone without the screen actually turning on.....

    neways i think that is DFU mode and attempting to recover at the moment...will let u know how it goes....

    Dude sounds like you should go ahead and upgrade Unless you want to spend the money to get your iphone fixed by someone.
