i have had this problem before (about two years ago when i first got the phone) and i simply left it off for a long time till one day it worked ( i think) but this time after hitting the "reset all" feature from the iphones settings menu i've been stuck on just the apple logo with it powering off and powering on only to see the apple logo again. Before i reset this time around i was looking to update my jailbreak (as it was 2 years old at this point) and foolishly went for the reset option being too lazy to just do a restore to wipe all the old junk data on the phone. I've tried quite a few things, however i cannot get it to reboot, doing a "just boot tethered" or "jailbreak" from redsnow gets me about 4/5 the way finished on the status bar during installation but freezes up. Does anyone have any advice?
Here is some data i was able to pull from it using redsnow:
srtg [iBoot-359.3.2] --new bootrom
iPhone2,1 2537353780687 full blobs:
4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.3
iPhone2,1 2537353780687 partial blobs:
iPhone2,1 153830874487 full blobs:
full system reset leaves in boot loop
***trying to restore through itunes gives error 3194
also when jailbreaking my iphone in 9.6 redsnow it says my 3gs is one of the newer ones which are fixed, however in 9.11 redsnow it does not.

error 3194, although mainly deals with shsh blobs issues, is not error specific
with that said, I do not believe you have SHSH blob issues, unless you are restoring to a firmware that you dont have blobs for
SO, if you are restoring to a firmware HIGHER than the one you are currently on, but below 5.1.1, you need to make sure the HOSTS file contains the entry "22.214.171.124 gs.apple.com"....this will ensure that iTunes verifies the firmware with the Saurik's server since Apple no longer signs it
HOWEVER if you are restoring to 5.1.1, you need to check the HOSTS file also to verify that it does not contain the entry "126.96.36.199 gs.apple.com" since Apple is still signing it

*changing the "HOSTS" file to include "188.8.131.52 gs.apple.com" allowed itunes to complete the restore of the phone to 4.1 and thus gain access to my phone. however i am having an issue region unlocking my phone as it is one of the "newer" 3gs' it is apparently unsafe to install the ipad baseband through redsnow to unlock the iphone, however installing cydia does work, but installing ultra snow does not allow me to use my US based sim card or any other cards.

+1. Specifically after week 35 of 2011. Check your serial number and ensure it is not manufactured after that week. For 8GB models it is week 28 and after. Your serial number, you can tell what year by the 3rd number (9 is 2009, 0 is 2010, 1 is 2011) and what week by the 4th and 5th number (01 is week 01, 11 is week 11, 21 is week 21, etc.)

i'm guessing by serial no you mean the one on the back of the phone? i've got A1303.... a "3" being ....2003?

2010 week 6. Thats the first 5 numbers of your serial yes?

I think the 0 is for 2010 as 1 is for 2011

suppose its more confusion on my part. i've got some friends telling me things they dont exactly remember straight about when they jailbroke their phones. I mostly assumed that it was a new iphone in that the redsnow software kept telling me that it was when i went to identify it and run the jailbreaks

Attempting the ipad baseband installation
ok, well that worked. Thank you 6thDay and Annie for all your help. Simply installing the ipad baseband with redsnow got my phone region and carrier unlocked, and changing that host file (as you described earlier) allowed me to restore my seamingly bricked iphone 3gs so that i could preform this jailbreak and baseband changing.
i suppose the last and final step is to figure out how to transfer my gameboy emulator data from my friends iphone (which i've been borrowing till i get mine working) so i dont lose all those pokemon. all those precious pokemon
