    Itunes won't restore it? What were you trying to do?

    If you iTunes knows that your phone is connected then just restore through iTunes. If iTunes doesn't know there is a phone connected then you need to turn to phone on. I am assuming you tried to jailbreak and you didn't get into DFU mode. Just Hold the Power button for a few seconds and see what happens. If nothing try holding the power and home button. Your phone will come back on it just takes a little time.

    this happens to me everytime I try to do an update, and it's annoying. I basically have to wipe everything clean, do a backup, and try again

    I had the same issue when updating mine last night. I kept restarting the phone and trying to restore, but it couldn't restore.

    I finally restarted the computer and it restored fine and updated to 2.2.1

    So...restart your computer and try to restore again.

    How do I get it back if stuck in DFU mode....I have this problem with an unactivated iPhone 2G :(

    I need to unlock this one.....but when I connect it to iTunes, it is asking to activate and I canceled it...Now the iTunes shows 'Activation Canceled'

    How do I resolve this issue???

    I have the same problem everytime I try to do an update. It will install the update . restart the phone . And go strait back to the connect to Itunes screen. I had to take it to the apple store last time it did this.

    You will need to use PWNAGE tool to create a custom unlocked FW. Then use iTunes to install that FW.
