    First of all, I apologize if this question has asked before but I did search this site as well as "Google" and I can't find how to fix it. So, I post it here and see if you have any advice on how to bring this Iphone 3g back to life.

    When I turn this Iphone on, first it show the apple logo and then spinning wheel and then it stays there forever. It will not pass screen.

    So, I put it into DFU and see if Itunes can detect it. It didn't. I even use the method of holding the home button while plugging in the cable, it shows up with itunes sign which indicates it is in recovery mode. Itunes/computer did not detect it at all.

    I thought there is problem with the charging dock, so remove this logic board and put it into another Iphone 3G. Exactly issues I describe above happen.

    Does any of you have similar situation I am in and if you do, how did you fix it?

    Any suggestion/recommendation is appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Maybe a button is broken preventing DFU mode? Think there other ways to get DFU mode via USB like redsn0w

    I did switch the logic board into another Iphone that I know nothing wrong. It still did not detect or pick up by computer/Itunes.
