I have done lots of jailbreaks, unlocks etc in the past and never had a problem, but this is the first time. I did a jailbreak on my 3gs w/ 3.0 firmware- and it actually went fine. I should have just left well enough alone, but I wanted to erase the data on the phone (and re-jailbreak if necessary). So I used the reset function in the iphone settings app, and that's where thigns started to go wrong. It wanted me to activate with itunes again at first, but somehow it just magically stopped asking me without me actually activating. Then I tried to jailbreak again using redsn0w 0.8, and although it reported successfull, it got hung up just before the end. After resetting the phone, now the phone turns on fine and is recognized by iTunes, but the only app I have is cydia, and it crashes whenever I try to load it. I have hte latest version of iTunes right now, and after trying (and learning it's not possible anymore) to restore to 3.0, I downloaded and tried to restore to 3.1, but it won't let me do that either. i get an "unknown error occurred (3194)" message. I also don't have any backed up ECID SHSH (and don't even really know what that is, just soemthing I found in reading about this). So basically the phone is recognized as having 3.0, but is in a messed up state. The goal, if possible, is to restore back to something I can jailbreak, then use pwnage tool to get a jailbroken ios4 upgrade & unlock. Can anyone give me an idea of where I can go from here to get back on track with that?... thanks Edit: rebooted into recovery mode, and was able to re-jailbreak. The jailbreak was fully successful this time, but i'm still showing the same issue. I can download/install things via icy, but cydia still crashes on load.
