    hi guys i have a serious problem, i think my iPhone is dead i have looked everywhere but can't find a solution.

    My problem is i have an iPhone 3gs that was on 4.3.5. the warranty was up so i decided to jailbreak it, so first of all i attempted to downgrade it i kept getting a load of errors in iTunes until finally it worked when i put it in pwned dfu using redsn0w. It restored but ended up back stuck in dfu. i tried fix recovery and it didn't work. tried a few other things and eventually it came to life by telling redsn0w to "just boot" so it showed a pineapple picture then came on and was on 4.3.3 but wasn't jailbroken and had no cydia. so then i used redsn0w to jailbreak it. it when through the jailbreak process then came up with the pineapple with a blue loading bar underneath. the loading bar got to about 1/3 of the way through then the phone went off. it was stuck back in dfu again so i told red snow to just boot again. the phone came on and cydia was there. i locked the phone and made the baby his dinner picked the phone up and there was nothing on the screen. i couldnt turn the phone on and holding home and sleep did nothing. i used my girlfriends phone to ring my phone and it rang but the phone made no noise. plugging it in to the wall for an hour did nothing either. now this morning i tried again. i can actually get the phone in to dfu but if i try to restore i get 1600 error in iTunes and if i try to restore in pwned dfu iTunes just hangs on preparing iPhone for restore. if i try anything in redsn0w it hangs on waiting for iPhone reboot or something and if i exit recovery in tiny umbrella i get a white screen for 10 mins then it goes off. i have tried everything! please help!!!!

    ifaith pulled it out of this mode once and i booted it tetherd and it came on and did exactly the same as last night. now ifaith wont pull it back again.

    i can not restore the phone in this state as it hangs in pwned dfu on preparing iphone and in normal dfu i get error 1600 as stated above

    Post in the Hacks forum, anyone who can help with jailbreak is more likely to see it there.
