    Hi previously jailbroken my iphone with Blackra1n.

    But now my iphone 3g will not get out of recovery mode, so I tried solving the issue by rebooting the phone with Blackra1n but the phone get stuck at the Geohot Blackra1n image and will stay there until it turns itself automatically.

    I have also tried restoring the iphone through Itunes but that won't finish either.

    Do you have any solutions?

    DFU RESTORE

    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.

    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!

    Step Four
    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.
