    That is a very critical file. You will have to restore your device.

    Thing is the device can't be read by my pc (its an iphone 3g by the way) and when i enter DFU mode, the computer detects the Apple USB controller thingy but still itunes can't detect it, redsn0w gave me a 'USB connection problem' when i tried to access it, so is there any other way i can reset my phone,, thanks for the suggestion though

    Nope, that iPhone is useless without being restored somehow. Have you tried other computers and other USB cables?

    Very critical. iOS won't do anything without it.
