ok, so im new to iphones relatively, ive had an old 2g and 3g, and ive jailbroken both. but, im still kinda a newb to all of this. so my old 3g iphone had a problem and the backligh wouldnt come on, i could see the screen but only in lots of light, and while trying to fix this i cracked the bottom of the lcd and now there is a huge white bar. so, i go my friends old 3g hoping to restore it and use it, here is the problem, her 3g is stuck in recovery mode, no sim is installed(when i put my sim in its fine, but still stuck) when i connect to itunes, it said that it couldnt connect due to the phone being password protected and to enter the password. now the phone wont even show up when connected... there was no way for me to ever enter the password... i know it, but there is nothing i can do to enter it while its still stuck in recovery mode. also the phone will not enter dfu mode no matter what i do. any help in getting this iphone to restore? so for the length of this and thanks in advance also, ive posted this on some other sites and only been told i was a thief and had stolen the phone, this is not true, the person i got it from is my best friend and she now has an android so she no longer wants the phone and no longer has the comuter that she was syncing the iphone with. as i stated, i know what the password is, if i can get the ohone out of recovery mode i could just go from there. ive tried to put the phone into dfu mode but for some reason it will not go into it whatsoever. all my other iphones ive had never had a problem with that.
