Hi. I`m having some problems restoring my iPhone 3G.
The phone has stopped working, at all. Nothing works, except DFU Mode, from which I can`t even get out of.
I tried holding the power button for more than 10 seconds, I tried holding both the home button & the power button, all the basic keys and nothing - the display stays black.
When I connect it to my PC, iTunes starts and tells me that the phone is in recovery mode.
I downloaded the 3.1.3 ipsw file and selected it by clicking on Restore while holding the SHIFT key.
Restoring started normally, until "Verifying iPhone restore...", where I the following error:
The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (6).
I tried different software versions, from 2.0 to 4.0.1. I even tried restoring to the automatically downloaded version by iTunes, and none worked. Every time it stops at the above error.
I searched all over the web for a solution and nothing worked.
I tried with different versions of iTunes and different operating systems.
Windows 7 - Latest version of iTunes, 9.1 & 9.0;
Mac OS X - Latest version of iTunes;
Windows XP - Tried with different versions but it can`t find driver for the phone in DFU Mode.
Sending it back to Apple isn`t a sollution as it is out of waranty and mostly because it would take more that a month and enough money to buy a brand new 3GS.
Please, if anyone can help, it would be awsome.
Thanks in advance.

Did you the SHSH files saved in Cydia? Maybe you need to setup the Apple Verification in the host file?
