    I have a unlocked Iphone 3gs. I recently updated to IOS 5.1 from redsn0w. Everything was ok until it just randomly turned off though fully charged. It finished the update and i was using my phone as normal then it just flicked off. Now when I try to turn it on it turns an assortment of colors first a blue screen, then yellow,and so on. and it's been doing that flicking off. I googled for about an hour and a half proir to posting this and this is what i have done so far to no avail. so if you know anything else that could please answer :)

    I've:
    -used the redsn0w feature to just boot tethered.
    -used TinyUmbrella and tss has been running for hours now
    -held the power and home key, nothing
    -thrown it against the wall in frustration..ok i haven't done that but i am highly frustrated so pleaseeee help.

    Most likely hardware issue, sounds like the screen.

    There is a solution. To bring it to a repair place to fix the screen.
    If the screen is messed up and displays random colors and acts weird then no restores or other software related hacks like redsnow, tinyumbrella will fix that.
