    Hello Everyone,
    So I did what everyone warned about and probably really deserve this.
    I have/had a unlocked and jailbroken Iphone 3g 16gb running 3.0os. Well the home button started to act really goofy like not responding at all and only responding when I plugged it in occasionally. I played around with it awhile and thought maybe to restore it to see if it was a bug in the system. STUPID mistake and god knows what I was thinking. Now I got a nice shiny brick and the phone is like brand new. Ive tried the DFU mode and restoring to previous versions but all I get is errors. Is there anything that I can do or am I pretty much up S!^t's creek without a paddle? Any advice would be helpful

    What is the actual problem?

    You restored 3.0. So? That doesn't make a shiny brick. It makes an Apple iPhone on 3.0, which many people would still die for.

    What do you want to do that you can't?

    You should be able to restore to 3.0 and then rejailbreak/unlock.
