    iPhone: 3G
    iOS: 4.1 (or none) :p
    Baseband: 05.14.02
    Jailbreak: redsn0w
    Activated: yes
    OS: Win 7 x64

    Hello boys & girls!

    I'm here looking for some help. My little sister has bricked her iPhone. The thing is:

    1. The iPhone has been jailbroken with redsn0w and Cydia was NOT synced via wifi afterwards.
    2. We don't have SHSH saved on a 74.208.10.249 server, Cydia's or any other places.
    3. "Erase All Contents and Settings" was accessed right after jailbreaking.
    4. Of course, iTunes shows a "The iTunes update server could not be contacted" message.

    Resumé

    We have an empty jailbroken phone without SHSH saved. Some people said there is a tethered restoring method but I haven't found anything around. Perhaps, you have any other ideas.


    Thank you,
    DS

    Just put your phone in DFU mode and restore to iOS 4.2.1 (the latest available for the 3G). You can then jailbreak with with GreenPois0n rc 6.1.

    Try to do a hard reset first, hold home and power for about a minute, may it will snap out of it.

    Not after Erase All Contents and Settings.

    It's in a boot loop, on some occations it snaps out of it untouched, sometimes it doesn't and a restore is required.

    If it were just in a boot loop, your advice would be good. But it's not just in a boot loop. Erase All Contents and Settings deletes files that are essential to the jailbreak. Resetting will do nothing in this situation.
