    I have a 16GB Jailbroken 3GS with ios 5.1.1. I wanted to sell it so I hit "erase all content and settings". It's now stucked on the circling logo for hours. How can I bring back the 5.1.1 and jailbreak it again?
    When I go to in iTunes>preferences>devices it shows that I have two backups of this phone, are they useful?
    Please kindly help me with a step by step guide.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for ur prompt reply Carlanga. I want version 5.1.1 so that I can jailbreak it again. Unfortunately couldn't find anything on iclarified.com because I'm not sure what to search for. can you be more specific please?

    happened to me so i turned the device off by holding the power and home buttons, and it turned on with the apple logo, back into my jailbroken lock screen. didn't even need to restore it

    For the future, get "ResetAllKiller". It disables that dangerous button.
