    Hey guys,

    stats:
    jailbroken iphone 3G at 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 (cant remember).

    my iBroken went into a vicious reboot cycle recently, constantly showing the white apple logo, until the battery was drained completely.

    I finally got it into restore mode (display: cable& itunes) connected it to itunes and tried to restore it. The process froze somewhere 3/4 to finish.

    Then ya know I googled around, downloaded pwnage tool, created a custom ipsw out of the iphone 3.0 ios 4 ipsw, selected it in itunes and tried to restore with that. Again it froze and the bar stopped just before completion:mad:.

    Does anyone know how to treat this one?

    update: I have also tried reinstalling itunes, etc, etc.

    Update-2: sorry typo. I meant that i have an iphone 3G not iphone 4

    Update-3: FIXED. Booted Windows xp via bootcamp, installed itunes, restored using custom ipsw.
