Hey all, I recently inherited a iPhone 3G, and wanted to jailbreak it. I've worked with jailbreaking before, but this time it was a little different. When I got it, it was in 4.1, and since I don't really care about multitasking (and I heard 3G is super slow in 4.x) I decided to downgrade. I looked around a little and decided to use this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0vXULSWs5E Well I didn't follow the instructions EXACTLY. You are supposed to use DFU mode...and I didn't realize that. Anyways, it started working just fine, the guy said it should take 5-15 min, so I went outside and worked for about 2 hrs, and came back. The iTunes progress bar was about 95% complete, and the progress bar on the iPhone was about 75% complete. I left it for another hour...neither bar moved. So I reset my iPhone and reviewed the instructions. I tried again, this time going into DFU mode, but the exact same thing happened, stopping at the same spot. So I tried again, this time trying to restore into whatever iTunes wanted me to....hung again. I've not had ANY errors (in the tutorial you are supposed to get an error message and then use Recboot to get out of it). I have tried using Recboot while it was hanging...the iPhone just goes back to recovery mode. I've also tried both restores in recovery mode (instead of DFU)...it hangs every time. At this point I just want to get the iPhone working again! If you can get me back to 3.1.3 that's great, but I just want some suggestions on how to get it working again period. Does anyone have any idea of what to do? Thanks, Nolan p.s. Attached are pics of the progress bars and iTunes screens I currently have. I am about 2 hrs into another restore.
