    so yesterday while plugged into my stereo my phone somehow crashed and entered recovery mode. when i took it home to restore it, it started to reboot itself about every 30 seconds while connected to my computer. I've tried about 50 times to boot in DFU but have been unsuccessful. i've even tried to modify the ipsw to cause a boot in DFU while restoring but that's failing as well. every time i try to restore via itunes, the phone reboots before it can fix it. taking it in to mac store today, will update soon.

    okay so this is what you do

    1) connect iphone to computer

    2) wait for the iphone to fix the recover loop, this happens every 8 minutes i believe.

    3) right when it finishes a recovery loop, put the phone into recovery mode.
    power button 10 seconds, power button+home button 15 seconds and home button for 10 seconds.
