When you were restoring to cfw, did you point host file towards cydia server by setting in TU mode.
it can take weeks for it to completely drained or you can remove the battery , leave it out for 10 mins and put it back.

Yea i used TU to point to saurik's server.
Wow, weeks?? should i take the risk of opening up my iphone?

Go watch some videos on how to remove the battery, you will need some tools before you start removing the battery.
Do it at your own risk

It takes a while to boot. Just wait and leave it connected to iTunes and it is supposed to boot.

So its been about a week now, how would i know if the battery is drained? i just plugged it in and the computer detected it immediately, does that mean that it isnt out of battery yet?

Yes. The computer won't recognize a turned off Device.

Technically it isnt off, i just left it in DFU mode after my sucessful as instructed. Thats why i was unsure.

my 3gs was stuck in DFU with black screen, but the iphone was detected by my pc just fine for restoring or fixing.

When I tried to go from 4.3.3 to 5.1.1 (these, by the way, are the only firmware versions for which I have SHSH blobs and for which I have custom firmwares (NO_BB) ) I got the black screen after an itunes error, also. I was at my wits end when I decided to have one more shot at starting the phone up, but I connected to external power instead of the computer, then held the home and power buttons together for what seemed the longest time (probably only a few seconds) and when that had no effect, detached from the power and the phone spontaneously started up again. None of this is logical, but I tried the upgrade twice, failed twice, had a black screen twice and on both occasions did that to get the phone back to functioning.
I'm off to search forums to find a way to get from 4.3.3 to 5.1.1. If it fails again, I'll leave it as is.  forgot about stitching blobs, and the fact that I had done this a long time ago. Found the previously stitched 5.1.1 which appears to be restoring now. Lets hope it works as well as it did in the past.

Putting iphone into recovery mode will allow you to restore .
Recovery mode : Hold both buttons down until screen goes off and immediately let go the Power button but keep holding Home button and at the same time plug in your iphone into the computer until itunes cable logo appears. Itunes should now detect iphone in recovery mode and needs a restore.
