    Put the phone into DFU mode and see if iTunes recognizes it. If it does, then restore.

    Make a custom firmware with pwnage. If the 3GS is on the ipad bb, you'll have to use a custom firmware anyway.

    This is an obscure error normally dictating hardware failure. Try to put it in Recovery (not DFU) and try iTunes. If it fails, put into Recovery again and take it to Apple. There is nothing you can do.

    Then why do you say its barely alive?

    You never mentioned redsn0w usage on the OP.


    Have you tried using Pwnage Tool?

    My advice to you is to use RedSn0w 0.9.6rc16 and download your iDevice's firmware at http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/. Search for your IPSW firmware file after running RedSn0w 0.9.6rc16 as Admin. Then, you should check the box that says "Install Cydia" from the screen that follows choosing your IPSW firmware. Once you do that, follow the directions to put the phone into DFU mode. This will unlock the phone and, of course, jailbreak it.
