    a friend of mine gave me his iphone 2g to 'sort out' before he sells it to someone.

    its jailbroken and the program it was using was something called 'cydia'

    ive never jailbroken anything so i dont know much about it but i went to settings > erase all data option to restore the iphone...


    ...but now when i switch on it wont go any further than the black screen with the apple logo (although in this case its a pineapple)

    any help would be appreciated.

    Since this is jailbroken phone and once you hit that button, you are facing this issue.

    In order for Itunes to detect it, put it into DFU mode, then restore it.

    If you don't know how to get it in DFU mode, then www.google.com and www.youtube.com are your sites to show you how.
