    I got the device on craigslist and it worked, I tried to restore and it gave me this error and it won't let me restore. Not sure if it was ever Jail broken in the past. Last I looked at the about info, it said version 3.1.3, I think. I tried to restore it like 6 times already. I tried researching it but I can only find solutions for 3G, does anyone know if this can be fixed for iPhone 3Gs for good where I can restore future updates. I would love to get this device fix and would gladly appreciate the help

    thanks for helping, I have, but it won't do me no good. According to apple, it is considered a possible hardware failure, it says to restore again. I tried, but I think I'm call the Apple store tomorrow to get it checked out. Hopefully they may replace it.

    try in dfu mode, and then if that doesn't work try it in dfu mode on a windows machine or vice versa
