    Hello all,
    I'm new to the forums & new to iphone world.

    Device: iphone 3GS. Firmware: 4.2.1
    Problem: Reset data- now stuck in recovery screen with itune logo & usb calbe'

    I bought used iphone & thought to reset all data & upgrade the software.
    Since I want to make a fresh start & dont want previous owners records I reset it.
    Once I reset all content & data, I was stuck in blank screen with apple logo (& danger/ghost-skeloton-like logo) It appears that its a jailbroken iphone.

    After reading loads of stuff online (& MacRumors forums of course) I could bring it in recovery mode. & now in itunes I only can see summary tab & name & firmware details all wipe-out. except serial no.
    Still in recovery mode: itunes suggested to restore & upgrade (which is what I want to do) but it failed to restore, I sometimes get error 1055 or 3194.
    I know it's jailbreak so... yeah shoot me.
    but is the any workaround? How can I restore or install and make it functional?
    I dont mind wiping /formating all data or apps if there any.

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssse help me out here.
    I read lot of similar discussions here.

    Thank you.

    One more thing:
    I tried tiny-umbrella to get out of recovery mode.
    But as I said there's no saved records either. Also tiny umbrella could not recognise device serial no. or name.

    Also I dont mind getting out of jailbreak version.. In fact it would be great if I could cleanse iphone & come out clean.
    Thank you.
