    "So i seriously dont know what to do right now..
    I needed to clean out my iPhone 3g and give it to my sister because shes going overseas.
    I did not want to go through the hassle of unlocking, and jailbraking it, so I just went into Settings>General>Reset all settings, this resulted in a boot loop.
    So i followed this guide

    I made my custom IPSW with ipsw 4.2.1, and ipad ipsw, went into DFU mode with pwnage tool

    Are you on a Mac? If so, open up Terminal, type 'sudo nano /etc/hosts' without the apostrophes, hit enter then type your password. Once in the hosts file, scroll down to gs.apple.com 74.xxx and put a # sign in front of the gs.apple.com. Hit Control+O, press enter then hit Control+X. Try to restore the phone again.
