    I got this iPhone yesterday, it's one iPhone 3G with firmware 4.2.1 (8C148). I jailbroke it with RedSn0w 0.96b5 and chose iPad Baseband, it worked great but EVERY TIME I ended a phone call, the phone rebooted. I looked for the solution at google and someone said to hold home button for 3 seconds and connect to the computer, then I tried to restore with iTunes but I was not successful. Now I can't do nothing to get out of recovery mode and every time I try to restore I get a new error message.

    I jailbroke with iPad BB and I didn't saved any SHSH blobs.

    What I've already tried:
    iReb
    Tinyumbrella
    Error 1015 fixer
    iPhoneRecoveryFix
    Recboot
    The solution posted in this thread
    DFU mode to restore

    Nothing works.

    Please help me. I'm desperate...

    Are you using a custom firmware when you're trying to do the iTunes restore? Because you have to now that you've gone to the 6.15.00 baseband

    Yep, I tried to restore with a custom firmware, but I get one message error as usual...

    I tried with normal firmware also, but it just doesn't work.

    I'm really desperate, I waited for this phone like for 2 months...

    Restore to official 3.1.3 and if its still stuck on recovery use Tinyumbrella to kick it out.
    Then use redsnow to JB and hactivate it if you dont have an official sim to activate with itunes.

    Is it possible?

    I mean, I have one 4.2.1 FW, how can I just downgrade it to 3.1.3 like this? I don't have SHSH blobs as I said. Is it really possible? How to?

    Pretty sure that the iPhone 3GS was when the whole blob thing started (correct me if I am wrong) so you should be gtg

    With a 3G you dont need shsh blobs for anything 3.1.3 and below.
    Download the official 3.1.3 and restore to that with itunes.
    Then JB and install ultrasnow from cydia to unlock.

    An added benefit is that on 3.1.3 the 3G will be A LOT faster.

    I'll try and I tell you, but are you sure that with the 3.1.3 FW it will restore fine? I mean, I tried with the 4.2.1 and I always got an error message.

    Very sure.
    If it gives you an error after the 3.1.3 use TU to kick it out of recovery.
    Are you sure you're in recovery mode or just the connect to itunes screen to activate?
    And you will have to find the correct redsnow version for 3.1.3 to JB that etc....
    So there's still many steps you will need to take. If you dont feel comfortable research more or find someone that knows how to do it.

    I'm in that screen that we have one USB cable and one arrow to iTunes.
    When I connect to iTunes it detects one iPhone in recovery mode, but I just can't restore it... I can't restore it to 3.1.3 just because it gives me one error message before I can complete ANY restore... So I think that even after "trying to restore" I still with 4.2.1 recovery mode, then I can't resolve it with any program :(

    please tell me something

    I already checked every google links and what worked out for other people just didn't for me...

    Maybe you have a hardware problem then.
    I dont know what else it could be. Tinyumbrella and fixrecovery get the job done when it comes to kicking it out of recovery.

    look up whited00r. Restore to it, and use recboot to kick it our of recovery. For a 3g, its speed is magic. Since its a cfw, you can get it pre unlocked as well.

    1) What are you using? PC or MAC

    2) Is it old, or new?

    3) Try out another PC

    4) Disable anti virus
