Hi , a friend of mine brought an iPhone 3g 8GB to me so that i can have a look and try to bring it back to life. iPhone is showing itunes logo and cable. I have been upgrading and playing with my iphone 2g so many time so im confident with what im doing. i conect iphone to itnunes and device is detected and im prompted to restore my iphone. i let iphone go through the software update it download the lates 3.0 firmware and attempts to install..the process goes to 100% but it never ends successfully, always gives me an error after 5-10 minuts and ask me to conect it to itunes. iphone was bought with local iphone offering provider so its 100% legit and i dont want to unlcok it , jeilbreak it or whatever. i just want to restore it and i dont want to go through warranty because it takes ages. i also tried to restore it to 2.0., 2.1 , 3.0 and always ends the same. I went through DFU and restore mode. Tried pwnage tool and quick pwn Im working on 10.5.7 , i just tried the same on XP and same result. any ideas ?
