ok, now i think i ruined it because it's my ports perhaps. i jailbroken my phone, and i'm used to it. one thing to mention was when i restored it on itunes to 5.0.1 it said error 6(or 9) i don't remember.. but when it was all done, it was firmware 5.0.1 and then i jailbroke it with redsn0w. but i did install libusb0 and i think that's my problem. though i believe i removed it from my system.. but i'm not entirely sure. i really think it's my ports, but it's only when i plug my iphone in my computer. it's odd, when i do my computer will say something like "usb port X is not working". also to mention, the only way i can charge my iphone is with the wall charger.
