    Since yesterday, i have exactly the same problem. The iPhone is completely frozen. I tried restoring with all the versions (1.1.1 and 1.1.2) but there is no way. I jailbreak it two days ago and it was working without any problem (i was running the 1.1.2 firmware, with the instructions of hackmyiphone). That page is no loger working. Could someone help me?

    Thank you very much,

    Thank you very much,
    Hackmyiphone's page is still working. You just need to go to the right link or page. I also followed the instructions on hacktheiphone and my phone is working just fine.

    Anyway, here is the link, i hope it will help you
    http://www.hacktheiphone.com/index_111.html
    for version 1.1.1

    and
    http://www.hacktheiphone.com/112/iph...k_windows.html
    for version 1.1.2

    Hacktheiphone has helped me a lot in understanding how iphone works. Take time to read everything first and browse the whole site before doing anything ok?

    Hope this helps.
    Smile!!!

    Thanks again,

    Hmmm... Maybe you have too many installed applications via installer? Because i've noticed sometimes my phone freezes too whenever i have too many applications installed, I would just uninstall everything and refresh my iphone by turning it off for a few minutes. And i reset the phone a couple of times too. Now, the freezes and the crashes are gone. But i bet, if i start installing more applications than i already have now it would start freezing and crashing again. Its the games that usually makes my phone freeze and crash. I really hope i could help you... Anyways, good luck!!!

    Do like someone already stated..plug the iPhone into the wall charger and put it into recovery mode. Then, attach to your pc with iTunes open and restore your settings. That should get you back up going....

    The problem is that i can not have access to the phone, it freezes in the really first second after booting. I just have installed the VNotes. The firmware came with the phone was 1.1.1.

    Thanks

    Why dont you do it again? I don't know... lucky guess. I mean, if you cant use your iphone properly anyway... why dont you just restore it once again? Maybe, just maybe... it will fix the problem this time around. Just a thought ok? Besides, there's already a jailbreak for 1.1.2 so you dont really need to worry about the whole activation thing. As long as you have the old bootloader, you shouldn't be having any problems.

    I tried like 10 times to reload the firmwares, not only the 1.1.2, but 1.0.2 and 1.1.1 and once everything seems to be fine, it reboots and it gets stuck right at the beginning, no chances to slide with the finger the botom.

    Any other suggestion? Thanks
