    I was trying to software unlock my iPhone 2g with an old version of redsn0w (9.2), which I've done before on other phone 2G's and it worked fine. Everything was running smoothly and bootneuter 2.1 had just come up on the phone but it was taking longer than normal and seemed to be stuck so I (stupidly) tried to reboot the phone so I could restore the phone and try again. Well the phone didn't like that because when it turned back on it got stuck on the apple boot logo...

    I've run into boot issues on other iPhones before and usually all you have to do is pop it into DFU mode or recovery mode and plug it into iTunes and voila it'll restore. THAT did not happen... I tried both recovery and DFU mode and both times I plug it into iTunes and click on restore the phone goes white while iTunes is "preparing iPhone for restore" and iTunes spits out error 23... I've also tried to just re-jailbreak it but it just gets stuck on the apple boot logo or on "determining current settings" in bootneuter.

    From what I've read error 23 is usually a hardware error that's most likely to do with the logic board but unless my little process here somehow fried the logic board I know my phone works fine.

    If you interrupt bootneuter while its unlocking the baseband then good chances are you ruined it.

    Is there anything to fix this though?
