    hey guys....... i was trying to unjailbreaking it by going to the settings
    and erase all content and settings and it says it needs around 2 hours so i slept
    and left my iphone on and i saw it was loading so i assume its working

    then today i woke up the phones off and when i turn on the iphone
    it started booting up for like 10 - 15 seconds then it had a sign like the follow picture shown.... then it freezes
    so i have to hold home and sleep button for like 6 seconds
    then it turns off and when i start it up again i get the same thing

    guys is my phone bricked?!?!?!

    Your phone's not bricked, since you can't "brick" an iPhone, at least in the sense you are taking it.

    Try putting it into DFU restore.

    First try holding down the lock/home button until the device turns off, then try turning it back on. If that doesn't work, put the device into DFU mode, or put it into Recovery Mode (turn off phone with method above, and then hold the home button while connecting it to iTunes), and then do a restore in iTunes.

    Yeah you'll be fine. My friend was playing with my phone (he's a 2G owner so the speed of the 3GS amazes him haha) and decided to DL the mobile installation patch for me. Problem is, he is running 2.2 (or whatever 2. version it was before 3.0) on his phone thus he is used to DLing those versions of thing and got me that one instead of the 3.0 version. After rebooting my phone just stayed on the apple with the "working" status circle for like 10mins then reset itself and repeated the process. ITunes still recognized my phone when I plugged it in but I just couldn't get into it via the phone itself so I had to restore. It was annoying that I had to start back over with the jailbreak thing and re-DL everthing and redo all my JB settings, but it's a minor inconvieniencd that is WAY better than having a permenantly screwed phone.

    I just wish there were a way to backup a jailbroken phone that way should you mess something up and need a restore you don't have to start from scratch again.
