    Questions???
    Do your iphones start up?
    Black Screen, No Screen, Apple Logo Only?

    I'm pretty sure this isn't the issue, but I accidentally installed an ipod firmware on my iphone and it screwed everything up. Double check to make sure you downloaded/uploaded the correct firmware.

    If you are having the same issue as I was having
    Try restoring your phone again: These instructions helped out a lot:

    "I PWNED MY IPHONE/IPOD WITH THE WRONG FIRMWARE! ITUNES SAYS MY IPHONE IS AN IPOD (or vice versa) WHAT CAN I DO?"

    MY PHONE WON'T TURN ON! ITS REBOOTING CONSTANTLY! I HAVE CONSTANTLY SCROLLING TEXT! and ANY OTHER ISSUE WHERE PHONE IS NON RESPONSIVE

    You can fix this!

    Put your phone into DFU mode. You can do this by pressing and holding the sleep and home button for 10 seconds WHILST THE USB CABLE IS CONNECTED AND ITUNES RUNNING from when the Apple logo appears until it dissapears and then KEEP holding the home button but let go of the sleep button - the screen will stay off but iTunes will recognise the phone.

    If you have trouble getting DFU mode use Independence/ iLiberty+ to put your phone into DFU mode!

    If your phone is not recognised by Independence/ iLiberty+ you will have to manually put it in DFU - this CAN be tricky to time right but eventually you WILL get it!

    Restore to apple original firmware and you can start over again!
