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

    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.

    Ok try this, hold down the power button and the home button together for about 20 sec, release both buttons the hold the power button down and see if it reboots phone or maybe go to recovery mode!

    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

    If you hold down the power and home key at the same time for 20 sec or so phone should turn off then turn the phone and see what you have
