A few days ago along with many others i accidentaley upgraded my iphone so i lost Cydia etc. However the phone worked fine. Today i have read that i could re jailbreak it back to 3.0. I have tried this using redsn0w and all i get now on the screen is the usb wire and the itunes disk. everytime i try to restore it with itunes i get an error after install. i have tried to install recovery file 3.0 and 3.1 for my 3g. Any help much appreciated

are you sure it's in DFU?
Recovery mode - A special mode in the device allowing firmware restoration; in this mode, the screen of the device shows a graphic
DFU mode - A special mode in the device that bypasses the loading of the operating system for recovery purposes; in this mode, the screen of the device is blank
