    You never hit reset all settings. Now you need to hook up your iPhone to your computer, put it in DFU mode, then restore.

    If you have no idea what you're talking about, don't comment.


    1. DFU Mode

    2. Shift+Restore (Windows) or Option+Restore (Mac)

    3. Choose the ipsw.

    Before you do this, do you know what iOS your iPhone was on before? Any SHSH saved?

    If you never saved any SHSH, then your only option is to restore to the new iOS 4.3.4

    I know exactly what i'm talking about. I've seen what happens when you press that option. An apple logo appears, and depending on how much data is on his device, will affect how long the erase takes.

    @AppleiDun, alright, but dont take that out on me.
