    short version: 3g, 3.1.2, 5.11.07 stuck in recovery loop. when i attempt to restore, i get stalled at the apple logo w/progress bar, then phone reboots back to "connect to itunes" and itunes gives me "unable to restore. unknown error 28". slightly longer version here

    here is what i get when i run iRecovery

    i cant get iRecovery to do much else (printenv,set auto-boot true, saveenv commands just return to the next line) except "reboot".

    any ideas?

    well, i went to my genius appt today, but no luck. the genius said that all they would have done would be to try a restore in DFU, but since i'd already tried it, we didnt even bother. i'm 3 months past apple care so they offered to replace it for the standard $199, but there's no guarantee that it would have 3.1.2 fw so i could use it w/Tmobile.

    overall i'm happy with the apple service and will probably buy more applecare for my mbp as a result. plus they were cool about jb/ul and said they would have replaced it if it was still under a/c.

    anyways, so i guess i'm SOL :(

    Acquired used. Do not know what firmware it is. Used different ispw's ranging from 2.2 - 3.1.2 Getting various errors 9, 23, 28, 1604, 2001.

    Should I count my losses?

    Here's my printenv report from iRecovery

    [FTL:MSG] Apple NAND Driver (AND) RO
    [NAND] No supported NAND found

    framebuffer = '0xfd00000'
    secure-boot = '0x1'

    I realize the "Nand Failed Initilization" is the limiting reagent.

    Help please.
