    I decided to upgrade my iphone today using WinPwn, and I tried to restore the phone before do this so that it would be fresh and ready to go. It said that the iphone could not be restored and I got the screen telling me to connect it with itunes. Itunes is not recognizing the iphone, and I tried to put it in DFU mode to continue with the unlocking but now itunes still sill not recognize it, and I cannot get the phone to do anything either, it just sits there.

    PLEASE HELP ME I AM FREAKING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Only because I've seen this thread a 100x. You are NOT in DFU. Find something to count to 10 precisely as every hesitation seems to count. Doesn't Pwnage give you a countdown?

    Are you using custom boot images? Are you legal 3G or unlocking a Gen1?

    Thanks for the responses everyone!

    I don't know what was wrong, but after about 15 minutes of just pushing any button that I could and holding them for different periods of time I finally got the connect to iTunes screen back, and then iTunes recognized it.

    I was able to restore it to my custom firmware and it is currently syncing with itunes with my T-mobile SIM in it.

    That was a very scary 30min!!!! Thanks for the support everyone! I am probably going to have lots of questions as the days go on and I get used to this new setup.

    Thanks again!
