    DFU mode dude.

    And shame for not being part of the iOS Dev program and using old old betas...

    Google how to put iphone in DFU mode- and restore to iOS 6.

    Thanks for the comments, I quite aware of all the tricks to try and sort this, I've done a few, I need the firmware as a last hope before I hit it with a hammer.

    If there are any experts on here I have used redsnow to attempt tethered boot in verbrose mode and have taken a pic of the screen. I cannot do a restore always get error 40 or error 20 no matter what.

    Also included screens of Ifaith and Itunes restore crashes

    HELP

    I've looked on the internet for you - and you're either trying to downgrade or attempting to hacktivate with an sn0wbreeze. (Or hacktivated with sn0wbreeze in the past on that computer.) OR downgrade with iFaith.
    Don't bother with all of that-

    Get on another computer (mom's, dads, friends, it doesn't matter) and restore it from DFU mode there.

    Do you mean just with itunes but force it into dfu mode or still use a custom ispw ? because I have tried a normal restore to ios 6

    From the iphonewiki

    Error 40
    Hacktivation bug in sn0wbreeze 2.0.1, which was fixed in sn0wbreeze 2.0.2.

    If I could restore to any ios and it worked I would, just fails everytime. Dont forget I received this phone this way, I've never been able to get it out of plug into itunes, I've tried i think everything, if I leave it plugged into the pc it reboots after about 10 mins. I need to try tether boot but I cannot if I try and use 9A405 I get the screen above :(

    If you put it in DFU mode and connect it to TinyUmbrella what iOS/BB does it give?

    9a404

    I cannot read that info since it will not come out of the recovery loop :( I have blobbs for 4.1 I used the manual ecid to get that and I have blobbs from the phone using ifaith but all useless :(

    Have you used the TU kick from recovery loop feature? I bet it would work - it tries lots of different things to get it to work.

    Even if you ever do get the 9A404 build, it won't work. iOS will lock itself and require that you do a DFU mode to restore it.

    It isn't a brick. If you tetherbooted that phone, it would boot to a purple or white screen and refuse to do anything else because the beta on it has expired. The only thing you can do is put it into DFU mode and restore to iOS 6.

    Try to restore it trough itunes with stock ios 6 on other pc or mac with other cable(just in case) and then fry to downgrade to whatever u have blobs ;) good luck

    Ps when u connet the phone in dfu mode itunes should recognize it and restore it with stock ios 6 ;)
