    I've been using my jailbroken phone for a while, using apptapp and installing
    programs and removing programs ect. It started crashing now and then so I thought the OS could have became corrupted. So I did a restore to 1.0.2 which I've done before using itunes 7.4, but now I'm using 7.6. At first it came up with the yellow triangle saying connect to itunes which I expected.
    I then started the ibrickr v.91 to fix it which I used before, and that booted it up just fine. Next when I tried to Free my phone it went into installing
    the dos files just as before, but never stopped. It installs them, then restarts
    shows the apple then keeps repeating this over and over. I've turned it off many times holding the home and sleep buttons but when it comes back on it
    just keeps doing the same thing.
    Now itunes and ibrickr can't detect it. Is there a troubleshooting program
    that could fix this? now I'm just letting it run to see if the battery going dead
    could help get it out of this.

    try editing your autoexec.bat

    and make sure you have turned himem on in config.sys

    Plug your phone in, hold the home/sleep buttons until your phone is put into DFU mode. In iTunes, hold shift, and click on restore. Browse to the firmware version you want to restore to, and click okay. use iBrickr from there to kick it out of the DFU mode. Screen will turn red, and you can Jailbreak from there.

    Thanks for the DFU tip. I went to apple support discussions to find out how to do it, and bam it went right into the DFU mode. I'm doing a restore right now. I won't be doing a jailbreak on this itunes 7.6 again till someone puts out one for the 1.1.3 or the third party is authorized.
    I just found some great programs for the iphone too, but I guess I'll need to wait. Incase you haven't heard there are a coulple of great programs out,
    camera pro that has zoom function, and they also put out a voice dialing program. Another devolper gives the iphone video recording. I tried all three
    and really liked the free versions.
    Thanks again for your help

    If someone had done some searching, he would have figured out that the Touch isn't the only piece of hardware you can downgrade now;


    You're welcome. Enjoy your soon to be jailbroken 1.1.2 iPhone. and I swear, if you try to run DOS on your phone again... yeah.
