Hi everyone, Yesterday i began having major issues with my jail broken 3GS! I've spent what feels like the last day searching forums and trying every trick i can see to get it to work again! Basically i got the Apple screen of death, so i tried pressing down the power and home key whilst plugged in to my laptop, then releasing the power key and iTunes finally recognises the phone and it connects no problem. That is so far so good. Then it tells me i have to restore the phone and i must download the newest software to do it. Again, that's no problem. But! It will not let me restore the phone. I get to about 80 - 95% completion of the download and installation process before the phone disconnects itself and it can't continue. I've gone beyond caring about the data on there, i just want a functioning phone again and i can replace everything else quite easily. Can anyone tell me what will work next for an iPhone that wont restore? To add insult to injury, i live in China where the nearest Apple store involves a trip on a death trap speed train and a day off work. Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere, but i've read so many forums and posts on the subject that it's all beginning to blur!! Thanks! EDIT: I don't know what firmware was running before this all started! I was advised by the guy i bought it from to do a DFU restore, but that hasn't worked either! I'm actually about to go crazy! Do i need to re-jail break it?
