    I did an erase all data on my iPhone 3GS. Its been 12 hours since it is showing me the apple logo only. I have it on 4.1 and it is unlocked. I do not want to reset it and load the new OS. I will not be able to unlock the iphone if i have the latest software?

    Can someone please guide me how to get it back working?

    Please HELP its URGENT :(

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Very bad idea to click the erase all on a JB iphone.
    What you need to do now is create a custom 4.3.3 ipsw that will save your unlockable baseband and restore to that using pwnage tool.

    You'll need to download the IPSW for 4.3.3 from Felix Bruns' website, and then use pwnagetool or snowbreeze (first for mac, second for windows) and create a custom IPSW that preserves your unlockable baseband. Then, put the phone in pwned DFU mode using either program and restore using shift restore in iTunes.
