    Ressuported4 is for 4.0 firmware and higher.
    So use that instead of the older one.

    Not sure bro, I never used it before.
    But by reading the information on the particular cydia package sounds like its not gonna work for what you need it to do.
    Important notes: Resupported 4 WILL NOT enable charging with cords that do not already charge your device. That is a hardware, not a software limitation.
    Read the info before you install it for further details on how it works and what it does. If it doesnt work you can always remove it though;)

    Probably a prob with the particular plug or charger.
    Not all will work, I had a few that wouldnt charge either.

    if that doesn't fix it then check dirt/lint in contacts

    Just make sure if you do restore, you do so via PwnageTool. Never let iTunes do its thing automatically.

    Oh, so that screen is on even when you dont have anything plugged into the iphone?
    Then it sounds like a hardware issue or water damage with the phone.
    Not a good sign.
    If you do restore use a custom IPSW created with pwnage to maintain your unlock.

    Nice, that would help.
    Hope it was just a dirty port.
