    My problem is I have a iphone 3g and was in the middle of jailbreaking

    (I have jailbroken 4 of my iphones and a bunch of others for friends so I knew what I was doing)

    Well I was using sn0wbreeze 2.2 got the custom firmware and as it was installing my laptop died

    (had it plugged it but my dog chewed up my cord when I wasn't looking gotta love furry creatures lol):mad:

    turned laptop back on and everything was closed out so I tried Sn0wbreeze again and computer ins't recognizing iPhone neither is Itunes went to turn on Iphone hoping it would be a simple fix and it is stuck in recovery tried tiny umbrella to exit recovery and that is not finding iPhone either. I have Googled for over 11 hours literally cause I hate opening threads that is already answered and cant find nothing.:confused:

    If anyone can help me please do. I have trying to figure this out since 11 o' clock p.m. last night tying to fix it and it is now 10:16 a.m.:confused:

    Restore it in dfu mode first and then try the JB after.

    I have tried that but I cant get into dfu mode and my computer doesnt reconize my iPhone I went into device manager and my iPhone is listed as unknown device.
    Then I tried what apple help said which was: right click update device driver click have disk then go to somthing like C://programfiles/common/?/?/deviceupdater or something like that then came up with an error found device software windows encountered a problem: device would not turn on.

    Yes, keep trying till you get it in DFU.
    Its tricky and might take plenty of tries.

    1) Hold power and home till the screen flashes (phone restarts)
    2) keep holding for 5 more seconds
    3) release power only, continuing to hold home.

    Thats it. First time you do this, iTunes will install drivers on your computer.

    All iphones go into DFU mode unless there's a hardware issue with them. In that case you're SOL.

    maybe try grabbing redsnow and using it to "pwned" DFU Mode your iPhone? or using tiny umbrella or reboot to get your device in/out of DFU?
