Hi, my friend gave me his iPhone 4 to jailbreak for him. When I plugged it in to my pc the apple logo came on for about 4 seconds and went off for 3 and back on again for 4 etc, so i unplugged it and tried to switch it on but it wont work so I tried putting it in to dfu mode and restore and update in iTunes, I tried jailbreaking it with (4.3.3) the new redsn0w and it came up on the iPhone screen and said downloading jailbreak files and the a bunch of White writing came up and the phone rebooted and did the apple logo thing again. Please help.

this happened to my friends phone also. I end up getting the phone into recovery mode but then when i use itunes to restore it. it gives me error 1611 and i have tried everything from deleting all itunes on my cpu and installing itunes again to see if it would recover the phone but nothing if anyone can help me out that would be great.
