Here's what happened:

I have an iphone 3g running 4.2.1 (Jailbroken). Due to the undesirable speed performance of 4.2.1 on iphone 3g, I've decided to downgrade it to 3.1.3 (stock) via restore in iTunes (SHIFT+RESTORE) and of course it ended up on a 1015 ERROR and an CONNECT USB TO ITUNES (Recovery Mode) on the screen of iphone but ive managed to exit RECOVERY MODE using TINYumbrella and JAILBREAKED using redsnow and I was SUCCESSFUL. Now i gave my iphone to my sister as a gift BUT she tried to UPGRADE it to 4.0.0 via restore on itunes (SHIFT+RESTORE) and during the process of resoration an ERROR popped out (she dont remember what) and iphone went to RECOVERY MODE again. ON MY MIND (but im not so sure), she SUCCESSFULLY upgraded to 4.0.0 so i tried to fix the problem and DECIDED to downgrade it back to 3.1.3 (coz i know iOS4 is slower on iphone 3g) via itunes (SHIFT+RESTORE) BUT THIS TIME ive used a SNOWBREEZE cooked 3.1.3_ipsw. and NOT the 3.1.3 (stock). and again ERROR 1015 and CONNECT USB TO ITUNES (Recovery Mode) on the screen of iphone.

This time i think i have BIGGER problems because when i tried TinyUmbrella to EXIT RECOVERY MODE,it FAILED!!! But WHY???

And everytime i connect iphone to itunes an ERROR pops out: THE IPHONE SOFTWARE UPDATE SERVER CANNOT BE CONTACTED. and the worse thing is that i dont see my iphone on the itunes side bar under DEVICES and this happens everytime i connect iphone to itunes.

Ive tried to RE-JAILBREAK IT WITH redsnow but it just goes back to RECOVERY MODE. also tried iREB and also failed. PLS HELP ME Jailbreak MASTERS!!!! I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO ANYMORE! Thanks to all in advance:)

Ive already tried going to DFU mode but i cant go back to 4.2.1 as uve suggested coz i cant get detected in itunes iether in Recovery mode or DFU mode, it just wont appear in itunes, but it apears in TU ,iReb and reds0w. Why does my phone wont appear in itunes but appears in TU,iReb and redsnow?

Im using itunes 10.7 the latest version. Ive tried searching the net to find some answers on how to exit recovery mode loop but i cant find answers. Is this the consequence of restoring to a CUSTOM IPSW (SNOWBREEZE) in Recovery mode and NOT in DFU mode?
