    Hi. I`m having some problems restoring my iPhone 3G.

    The phone has stopped working, at all. Nothing works, except DFU Mode, from which I can`t even get out of.
    I tried holding the power button for more than 10 seconds, I tried holding both the home button & the power button, all the basic keys and nothing - the display stays black.

    When I connect it to my PC, iTunes starts and tells me that the phone is in recovery mode.
    I downloaded the 3.1.3 ipsw file and selected it by clicking on Restore while holding the SHIFT key.
    Restoring started normally, until "Verifying iPhone restore...", where I the following error:
    and display turns off.

    I tried different software versions, from 2.0 to 4.0.1. I even tried restoring to the automatically downloaded version by iTunes, and none worked. Every time it stops at the above error.

    I searched all over the web for a solution and nothing worked.
    I tried with different versions of iTunes and different operating systems.
    Windows 7 - Latest version of iTunes, 9.1 & 9.0;
    Mac OS X - Latest version of iTunes;
    Windows XP - Tried with different versions but it can`t find driver for the phone in DFU Mode.

    Sending it back to Apple isn`t a sollution as it is out of waranty and mostly because it would take more that a month and enough money to buy a brand new 3GS.

    Please, if anyone can help, it would be awsome.
    Thanks in advance.
