    your iphone is probably bricked mate...

    first you need to connect it to your pc
    then hold the power button and home button for 10 secs to shut the iphone down
    let go off the power button after it shuts down but keep the home button pressed

    after a few seconds it will enter recovery mode...your itunes will automatically detect it....and ask you to restore...
    restore it to 1.1.4...
    and then to unlock use ziphone[google it if you dont know what it is]
    its automatic ...and you should have your iphone up and running in no time :D

    lemme know if it helped mate.....it worked for me..:)

    Tried Everything; Still Restarting!

    If anyone could help me, I would greatly appreciate it! I used ziphone to jailbreak my iphone about a month ago. I started noticing problems (i.e. phone spontaneously restarting during calls, wifi not working, freezing up when clicking on "Settings"). So, I tried restoring. I ran into problems during restore, but finally I got the phone restored. I am still having problems. If I try to turn wifi on, the phone constantly reboots. I have restored 5 times through itunes. I have even tried restoring in Recovery mode. Nothing fixes the problem. As long as wifi is turned off, the phone will stay on. I am no longer running ziphone software on the iphone, but I suspect that the restore process is not completely removing the ziphone files.

    I dont know what your problem exactly is...but a lot of people have complained about wifi problems after using ziphone 2.6 ...but trying doing this mate...hopefully it will help...[not sure]
    restore your phone 1 last time to 1.1.4 firmware....
    then unlock it with iplus2.0b [the latest one] ...use the international payload if you are non-us ...http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=34049

    try following the instructions and see if it helps.....

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Why are you respond to a two year old thread? Do you have <1.1.4? Seriously?
