    Hi all, i am going to explain my problem. First of all, thanks for reading.

    Initial Status: iPhone with Spanish Company with IOS 4.0.1. I did jailbreak on it and I can use it for any operator.

    My iPhone has been working perfectly until last Monday. When I switch on the phone, I can only do emergency calls and in the screen I see USB cable and iTunes icon (it is same screen as Recovery mode). If I try to connect it to iTunes in MAC, I see this error 0xE8000001. I can not access to the iPhone with any other tool (diskaid, irecovery, ...) becaUse none of them detects it.

    When I bought this iPhone, I use TinyUmbrella and I saved SHSH files and I did a backup. My question are:

    Can I recover my iPhone?
    In DFU mode?

    If I try to recover it in DFU mode, can I lose that I can use it with any operator?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds to me like you need an unlock in which case you really do not want to do a DFU recovery it will update your baseband. You want to check that you have SHSH and use pwnage tool to create a custom firmware which will enable you to keep the existing baseband and unlock the phone.

    If you have SHSH you can go as far as 4.2.1 with custom firmware and keep your existing baseband.

    Yes, this was my concern, if I do a DFU recovery, I will lose my unlock. So, what do you recommend? I don't catch you. Could you explain the necessary steps that I have to do?

    Thanks a lot friends!!

    Problem fixed!

    I can tell you that finally I fixed the problem. I put the iPhone in DFU mode and as I have stored SHSH files I recovered them and now I have iPhone with IOS 4.2.1 with JB and unlock.

    Thank you very much for your support!
