    I know there are a lot of this threads but no one have helped me so i make my own.

    I have a iphone 3gs, it had fw 4.1 with the new baseband. so in order to unlock i used redsnow jailbreak and upgraded bb to the ipadbb. This worked smooth and everything worked. Before i gave it away i thougt i could restore the phone. not in itunes, but deleting all messeges, phone numbers etc. And after this it got stuck with the apple logo. I then tryed restore in itunes, but then it gave me the 1050 error, the phone says "connetct to itunes". I tryed diffrent thing but it all ended up the same way.

    Any god solutions?

    Let me guess, you use the "Erase all contents...". If you did that, you will need to restore the phone. And, since you use iPad baseband hack, you can not restore through iTunes normally and you will always get an error. That was one of the warnings when using the iPad hack.

    You can only restore using a custom firmware file (one that keeps the baseband). And, if you don't have old SHSH files saved, you can only restore to latest firmware version, now 4.2.1.
