I bought a used and unlocked/jailbroke iphone 2g and I did "erase user contents" on the phone. Afterward, I unlocked/jailbroke it again using
redsn0w. Now all that is on the phone is Cydia. I tried to restore the phone through itunes in dfu mode, and once the phone is in dfu (or recovery mode) itunes will not recognize. In order for me to get the iphone out of those modes, I have to unlock/jailbreak it again. I then tried just restoring the phone using shift + clicking on restore and using a custom ipsw file, and that gave me an error and said it could not be restored, and then it was locked again. I am not sure what else to do to get itunes to recognize the phone in dfu mode so I can restore it, or how to restore it some other way. I am using itunes 8.2. Any ideas?

Thanks!
