    My friend gave her old iPhone 3GS 32GB to me and I was anxious to use it, I was charging it like 2-3 hours and then, it works 100% fine but just kind of looks old since it was never used like for 3 years and got stored in a drybox. The device was jailbroken since it had a Cydia app but since I want to use it like a fresh device so I ran to Erase All Content and Settings. I gave it like 20 to 30 minutes tops and after a few loading screens, it got stucked in an Apple Logo for like 2-3 minutes. I also attempt to do have the device go through DFU or Recovery Mode like a couple of times but it still doesn't go through.

    I also followed the steps from this article, and it was still no use for me:

    Anyone can help on this? Thanks in advance.

    1, never ever select Erase All Content and Settings on a JB'n device.

    2, what happens when you connect it to iTunes?

    It doesn't go through with iTunes. Also, I tried it with my desktop and 2 laptops, still no go.
