    Even after it already successfully unlocked and everything? I was able to browse around the springboard screen, only when I tried to sync did it DFU.

    Can I just restore using the pwn ipsw that I used the first time?

    I tried turning the device on/off, but it still says "connect to itunes"

    This happend to me yesterday night. I wanted to clear all contacts and stuff. So that logo where it says connect to ITUNES showed up. But when that happened I wasnt able to put the phone in DFU mode. Basically what I did is a normal restore from ITUNES. Then do another restore (SHIFT+RESTORE button) choose custom firmware file. Thats how I got it to work again.
