    please help, i had a iphone sitting in the drawer for a while that needed a new back, i went and had the new back put on and was getting ready to give the phone to the wife. so i went and told it to erase the settings and then it went to hell. it hung there and now all i get is the pineapple logo stuck and nothing else. it was pwned late last summer so i cant remember the version that was on there. everytime i try and restore it with itunes with there firmware or custom firmware i get a (2006) error. i did try a older version of itunes as some threads talk about and then i get a (20) error. i dont think ssh is running on it as i cant remember and i have been trying it over and over hoping i can get in it with he restore. seems that i can get it into DFU mode fine, that is the only way it get reconized. i get nothing when i plug and unplug it. i have tried on windows and a mac and same results. does anyone have any suggestions. i am hoping it can be save some how.

    thanks for your help

    thanks for your help, her is the weird thing. i have been putting in restore mode and itunes was picking it up in restore mode. has not worked to this point. now i try it again this morning the same xact i have been trying it and now it went. that is weird. the only thing i did different is i left it off the cable all night turned off. either way it worked and i am happy. maybe you are just good luck! :D

    I'm glad to hear that is working again. Hopefully you won't have any more problems. :)
