Sooo Last night my iphone 3g black 16gig crashed and just kept showing the apple logo after half an hour and a reboot or two i decided to restore. Its on firmware 2.02 and following update to itunes 8.0 i had at least two recent backups on my G5 (still taking forever to do but i am patient) so i thought at least i had recent back ups i would be ok!? so i put it DFU mode then... following at least four seperate restores and attempts to backup Itunes gets so far into the backup and then just hangs...no error message and i have left one restore for at least 7 hours at the hang point. then had to force quit itunes and start again. but even with a different backup i am faced with the same problem.. any ideas or is it time to admit defeat and install as a new iphone ?
