    I recently bought an Iphone and tried to Jailbreak it with Blackra1n. After trying, it went into recovery mode and is now stuck. Have tried Jailbreaking it again and again and agian...same result. Tried restoring the phone and no luck. Have read some of the older threads and tried almost everything. Still no luck:( Help Please Please..:(

    Did you just buy the phone? If, so you're probably on 3.1.3 and can't even JB to begin with.

    Im not sure I understand your problem, but you can't even restore your phone? Try a DFU restore. Hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds, then release the power button and hold onto the home button until iTunes recognizes a phone in recovery mode. (If it's already in recovery mode to begin with, you'll hear the sound of the device disconnecting, and the sound of it reconnecting.

    Once in DFU mode (the screen will be all black, but itunes will recognize it) just restore to the lastest firmware. Since you haven't been Jailbroken before, you probably don't have an shsh stored on file, you'll be stuck on 3.1.3 until a jailbreak for that firmware is discovered. (or released ;))

    I dont think you'll be able to JB the way it is now.
    If you dont have your SHSH's saved thru cydia you will have to restore it to 3.1.3 thru itunes.

    Open the folder that has the update in it and delete the update.
    Restart Itunes and your computer and connect the phone
    Chose Restore
    This should re-download the update and fix the error.
    If it still fails try DFU restore
