    so here's the story. I got a iphone 3g which i have unlocked to 4.2.1 with the ipad baseband. just right now I figured i would erase all content and settings which i did because i am passing the phone over to my mother. Here's the problem: it remained in the apple logo for more than two hours so i hard shut down it (held teh power and home button together) and restarted.....and guess what happened, didn't get out of the apple logo.

    i tried restoring it by jailbreaking and unlocking it the same way i did. but redsn0w keeeps shuting down.

    What do i do? do i restore it using itunes?

    someone please help! i want to give this to my mom with no worries!!

    You just basically removed the os from the phone. You need to restore via iTunes

    so i tried restoring it via itunes and now it won't come off the screen where it asks me to plug it into itunes (i'm guessing recovery mode). and as much as i try to restore it, it still won't come off that screen!!!

    what do i do>!
