Check this out,
How to Fix an iPhone Caught in a Bad Reboot Cycle or That Won’t Boot
I think this is the exact problem you are having
"1. Hold down power AND home (the round button) until the phone turns off completely. Touch nothing else. Keep holding those buttons.
2. Once you’re in a reboot cycle, let go of power. Hold home down for two minutes.
3. Your iPhone/Touch may freeze with a blank screen. Do not panic or call your lawyer. Connect it to your Mac or PC and see if iTunes detects it in restore mode. Restore to the previous good firmware.
4. If this fails, disconnect from iTunes and repeat these steps. Do not lose patience. Sometimes it doesn’t work the first time. Sometimes it take a few turns to get it."

I did get it fixed However, heres what i did:
I again Upgraded again to 2.0
and i got the plug into Itunes symbol.I uninstalled Itunes and instaled Itunes 7.5. I then pluged the phone into computer, help slep/wake button AND home button 10 sec then continued holding home button( I forget what this is called). After this Itunes 7.5 said like its in restore mode or something and to restore it using itunes. I THEN shift Clicked on Restore and selected Iphone version 1.1.4. It did downgrade to 1.1.4 but i cant unlock it now because like its still technically updated to 2.0 and we have to wait for the 2.0 PWN

Please define "unresponsive" and "reset" in the contexts to which you're referring. Is the phone freezing? Or going to a blank screen from which the home button does not awake? When you're "resetting" it, are you turning it off and on again or just back on? Your wording leaves a bit to confusion.spam=ban, Please no signature spam or links...

i have a problem too i was getting ready to install the official 2.1.1 firmware so i can jailbreak it
but the upgrade didn't take, so it forced me to wipe everything and restore BUT it WON'T restore and im' trapped in an 'unknown error 14' recovery loop
please somebody help me, restarting comp won't help, logging in as another person won't help, i don't have anything on my laptop to allow it to restore to, i'm STUCK !!!
