    Hey Guys,
    A friend of mine just game me his old iphone 3g. I was jailbroken and before I got it from him. He restored it from the phone.. Erase all content and settings..

    Now, the phone wont boot, It is stuck in a cycle, it goes to the apple, the circular loading thing spins for a few minutes then restarts and does the same thing again.

    I have a mac, and downloaded pwnage tool and a 3g firmware, ispw to attempt to restore it, but it tells me it is the wrong bundle.

    It is plugged in, and is not recgognized by my computer or itunes..

    I will paypal a thank you to who ever can help me fix it first!

    Thank you

    In the future, if you use "Erase all contents..." on a JB phone it will not reboot correctly. Put the phone into DFU mode, and then, restore through ITunes with 3.1.3 firmware. Afterward, yo can JB it.
