    What now? I got error 1013, tried doing quickpwn instructions so it detects the phone but the screen on my iphone is stuck on the usb to iTunes logo and it wont go any further.

    Can the genius tell i put 3.0 on there at one point if its stuck in this mode and nothing can be done? i thought 3.0 to 2.2.1 was possible.

    The 3.0 GM Seed specifically says you cannot downgrade to an earlier OS version. You did RTFM, being a developer and all?

    You need to wait until the official firmware is released next week and try again.

    In future don't mess with stuff you can't handle ;)

    You aren't stuck my friend. Google search "iRecovery".

    for whatever reason going from 3.0 to 2.2.1 will result in 1013 that cant be fixed by holding power+home for 15 seconds to reset

    but going 3.0 to 2.2.1 to 2.2 then doing power+home for 15 worked

    Personally it was alot easier for me to just put 3.0 back on it. Took a few minutes. The Genius will send you away with a 1 800 number to dev support.

    yeah but i dont know how to "Go to the terminal and change to the iRecovery directory, wherever it is on your system, and type these two commands:"

    (step 4)

    my iPhone is stuck at the iTunes and USB cable logo on the screen, tried rebooting a million times, cant get any further
