    Wow, never heard of that one before. Only thing I can think of is trying to restore with iTunes.

    Another example why Pwnage is one of the only pwing tools that should be used.

    Are you able to get it into DFU mode again? I would try re-putting into DFU mode and then option-click to a virgin .ispw in iTunes

    I didn't think you could "brick" just doing a jailbreak. I tried everything I could do to "brick" mine, couldn't do it. Bring it to an Apple Genius, they'll hook you up.

    Would they ignore the reason it is bricked?

    I Solved the problem!

    Since i could just not get out of the DFU mode i waited for the battery of the iphone to run off (i did this because the connect to itunes screen didn't disappeared even if i hold the sleep button, so i took advantage of it:D). I then connected it to the computer and it entered now on restore mode instead of DFU mode, so i just used iLiberty to kick the iphone out of recovery mode and bam.. The iphone returned to me :)
