I had a 3GS 3.01, that was bricked due to winterboard, it would never get out of the booting process. I didnt have my files saved on Cydia. So I thought I had no choice and just updated to 3.1 using Cydias sever with Itunes 8.2, Now I have an iphone that I can use the iphone and all the features except no celluar service, Im not sure what state you can call the phone right now?

Since you have a 3GS, it is still under warranty barring any liquid/physical damage. If you have an Apple Store near you, make a reservation and they'll replace it if they cannot fix it. Most likely, the replacement device will even have 3.0.1 right now, so you can re-jailbreak.

Get into your local Apple store like tomorrow. Get a new iPhone, you'll have to tell them that it does it every few days, and don't even mention a jailbreak. Just tell them that you keep restoring it, and every other day or so it does this. Just make sure you restore before you bring it in in order to have no jailbreak, as said previously, you may still be able to get one with 3.0.1 on it. Tell them you'd like the phone activated at the store, so you can check to make sure it has 3.0.1. If it does, you're safe. Then just jb and unlock, and your home free. But make sure you have 3.0.1 on it lol
