    Went throught the whole process and everything was sucessful, but the phone seemed frozen when I was done. I did a reboot and now the phone will show the apple logo and freeze there. It never loads to the homescreen.

    dam, I just tried a restor and itunes will not even recognize it.


    Is there anyting I can do, can I get itunes to recognize it somehow.

    hold the home and power button for about 30 seconds to send it to "restore" mode then plug it into itunes

    actually tried a second time and I got the yellow triangle. Hopefully this works. Thanks

    finally restored, thank god.

    The only thing strange was that in the middle of the restore I had that small pin wheel spinning on the homescreen and after I was finished it never stopped.

    happened to me once too. I had to plug it into an AC adapter to get it to go to the yellow triangle.

    It's pretty difficult to "brick" your iphone(if even possible), even without knowing what you're doing :)

    I agree. I have been "hacking" my iPhone from the very begining. And I have yet to hear of anyone actually bricking their phone in a software "hack".

    I had a scare too when the last update came around. After plugging/unplugging and resetting it a bit, it started working again. I am happy with their resilience (so far).
