    While downgrading from 1.1.3 my phone suddenly went to the apple screen and then "wording" started to scroll and that's been the case for 40 minutes and I cannot get it back.

    Any suggestions? I'm f@@ked

    did you try putting it in recovery mode and if its doing that while being downgraded leave it if not then hold the home and sleep wake button until the screen dissapears then let go of the sleep/wake button as soon as that happens

    All of this DRAMA and you simply didn't hold the buttons 'long enough' to enter DFU Mode?!

    Thanks for sharing your harrowing experience with us. ;)
