    hey guys...

    The thing is that i just got an iphone 2g frm a cuzn of mine who had been using it for quite sometime now... it was still on a 1.0.2 firmware which was both unlocked and jailbroken...

    I decided to upgrade it to the latest 3.1.2 firmware and unlock and jailbreak it later on. I connected it to the latest version of itunes and as a prompt it asked me if i wanted to update the firmware... I clicked download and install.

    for the first few times it gave an error saying timed out.. but after downloading it a couple of times and checking the forums i got it to download...

    But now it seems as if the firmware didnt update properly... I have got a screen with a triangle with a ! . saying plz connect to itunes...

    I connected it to the PC i use which is operating on windows 7. But the iphone doesnt show up on itunes at all.... although i checked out a lot of sites before posting this thread none of them attended to the problem I am facing here...

    When i checked out the device manager it shows the iphone as Iphone (Recovery Mode). And when i tried out putting it in to the recovery mode nothing happens .. when ever i boot up or connect the phone to the Pc this is all i get... it doesnt budge... even i tried pressing down the home button while connecting the cable no use!

    PLz help me...

    Waiting your reply guys!
