    Error 23
    Cannot restore or update due to hardware problems.
    In software you have to set default web browser.
    In hardware, it's a communication problem. Check all connections, also try to change battery.
    Faulty baseband flash or processor
    Happens frequently after water damage. Remove and clean motherboard.

    It seems at least you were able to set the host file back. That part is fine. But I'm pulling up some things that appear to be more of a hardware issue. I'm guessing there is no way for you to access the IMEI number. That's the only way that I can figure out if it's a newer model of the 3GS, which if someone tried to flash the iPad baseband onto it to unlock would cause permanent damage to it. Try all of the above that you are able to...if you're comfortable taking the phone apart.

    idevice detected it as the 3gs new boot rom - its not so much the taking it apart but the putting it back together again I think I will get a mac technician to take a look at it. They will only charge me if they can fix it.

    Thanks for your help
