I imagine when I plug into iTunes and it takes a little while before it recognizes (indicating start-up), that this is when I can restore (because the battery has died).

    Also, when this occurs, which FW should I restore to? 5.1.1 CFW SnowBreeze Hacktivated, or should I get a 5.1.1 CFW SB Hacktivated with 6.15.00 flash again? Assuming 5.0.1 isn't signed anymore.

    Additionally, if I choose to dissect my phone and get the battery out, the phone would be ON when Im going in? Is this fine?

    Thank you so much, life saver!
    Easiest way is probably holding power button down. If the red empty battery symbol shows up the phone still has a little juice. You can also try home and power together for 30 seconds to see if that gets any life out of the phone. If you see nothing doing those things I would give it a day after that then try restoring again.

    Phone still not dead ;( Thinking about opening it up. Any way I can turn it off before I open it up or does it stay on (in dfu) the whole process of opening it until I yank the battery?

    No need to turn it off to take the battery out.

    I used the ifixit guides when I first was learning how to take apart iPhones. They are generally pretty good. Or you can just go on youtube and search, there are tons on there. If you do decide to go for it make sure to leave it out for at least an hour before putting it back in.

    Or you can try a guide from one of our own here on MMi: HOW TO: Take Apart the iPhone 3G/3G[S]
