    Default Iphone 3GS wont charge,activate, DFU, recovery
    Hi guys !
    Yesterday i updated an iPhone 3GS from iOS4 to iOS6 (6.1.6)...i did a restore and update to delete everything from the iphone cause it was jailbroken...anyways the process finished successful and the iPhone opened in the activation screen...but i can't activate it at all....the usb don't work at all...it can't even charge...no DFU or recovery mode...
    I found the trick about the activation screen bypassing and i did it....i got the springboard but none of the apps open...
    Itunes recognized it only at the first time and said that there was any sim inside but i had my sim and i don't have PIN....i tried several cables and ports....my iPhone 4S works great with this cables.
    Any ideas ?

    Funny as it sounds, but, is your 3GS sim free, or not?
    And restore and update, what do you mean by that???

    well, here it comes.......first off all, you should never do an update through iTunes on a jailboaken phone. Second, most probably, the phone was unlocked with Ultrasnow from Cydia, so after the update, it's locked again.
    Try to jailbreak it again with p0sixspwn.
    As for unlocking it again, I am not sure, if ultrasnow will work. As far as I know, the latest version of Ultrasnow is 1.2.8, that was made for IOS 6.1, but I don't know, will it work on 6.1.6.
    If the jailbreak is successful, check out TSS Center in Cydia, to see what saved SHSH blobs you have. Just maybe, you will have also other possibilities to unlock it.

    Well than, you should consider a hardware problem, maybe visiting service would be right thing to do.....

    If you can put the phone into DFU mode, than restore it again, but this time download IPSW 6.1.6 for 3GS from the net and than SHIFT + RESTORE

    ok, now, check services on you PC, do you have Apple Mobile Device installed and active. If yes, than it must be something wrong with hardware.
