iPhone 3GS 5.0.1 - Stuck at loading circle after reboot, please help!

Hey iPhone brothers,

I recently jailbroke my iPhone 3GS and replaced my dock connector. After this, my iPhone started being stuck at the apple boot logo, and then would advance to the spinning circle (of death?). I tried restoring it, and the same thing happens - apple logo, and then spinning circle.

However, on iTunes, the phone looks as though it was working properly - shows all my music, videos, etc.

Things I tried:
- I restored it like 5 times. I also tried using a iPhone2,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.ipsw (5.0.1 firmware from iClarified), no luck.
- I tried jailbreaking with redsn0w 10.3b after I restored it...the screen shows the entire jailbreak process, but when finished, shows apple logo --> spinning circle. I tried the "Just Boot" option and it is stuck at the pineapple logo.
- Alternating between the above two didn't help either (ie. same result with or without jailbreak). I can get it into DFU mode though.

Please help me with any advice you can give - this is my only good phone right now.

-N

Put it in DFU mode and restore it to 4.1 firmware, then activate it with Redsn0w.
