Old or new bootloader? (untethered or tethered jailbreak, respectively)

its tethered i guess.(the one where you have to run blackrain to boot up when it powers down.)

What were you trying to do that messed it up? When you say you tried to restore to 3.1.2, do you mean that you tried restoring with a custom IPSW? If so, try downloading a fresh 3.1.2 3G S update from the link in my signature and updating with that. (Remember to hold Option (Shift on Windows) while clicking to choose your 3.1.2 IPSW.

I have the same problem with my 3g and have not been able to get it to restore to any type of firmware. I even trying a regual restore through Itunes and I get an error message. I'm stuck on what else to do. This all happend after a update from Cydia. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I can get it to DFU but when I try to restore I get an error message and it will not restore. I have tried every firmware possible and nothing. Any ideas? Thanks for the response
