    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
    http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=13000
    that Applejuiced provided me with
    I made my custom IPSW with ipsw 4.2.1, and ipad ipsw, went into DFU mode with pwnage tool
    Apple logo with loading bar pops up, then around 75% it just zooms to the end and gives me a 1050 error.. im like ****..
    turn the phone off.. turned it back on..
    it instantly boots to recovery mode (steve jobs speaking russian)

    what doo it do?

    Restore fresh back to 4.2.1 then use the latest version of redsn0w to unlock/jailbreak your 3G.

    Before you restore with the custom ipsw, make sure the iPhone is in "Pwned DFU Mode."

    Also, the custom ipsw should be un-activated.

    Install black rain and Just when u see the ipsw installing and u should see white line showing the loading process...Hit rain and it should push you through without the error.
