Hey guys, I have an iPhone 3GS that I jailbroke while on firmware 5.0 the other day I tried to upgrade it to 5.1.1 it worked out but the screen is stuck on the apple logo. Now this is usually an easy fix as I had this problem before but this time it is different. While the screen is stuck on the apple logo I can still connect to iTunes and it seems like iTunes doesn't even see the problem, I can go through all the data on the phone, upload music, pictures just as if there is no problem. I tried almost everything, putting it in DFU mode and restoring and it restores but the problem continues. Please help if you have any suggestions! Thanks in advance!

That is quite an intriguing issue as I have not seen anyone encountering that issue yet.
1. Are you on the ipad baseband?
2. Did you try restoring to an earlier iOS version?.....like a custom 4.1 since apple is still signing it?

here's what I suggest to do:
since itunes recognize the device, back it up first
then download the 4.1 firmware here: iPhone 3G 4.1 - Downloads - Apple, iPhone and iPad Forums | ModMyi.com
download sn0wbreeze and create a custom 4.1 firmware
then follow the instructions in sn0wbreeze to put your phone in PWNED DFU mode
then SHIFT + restore to the custom 4.1 firmware and lets hope it works

what version of snoowbreeze? and if it doesnt work is their a other way?

use the latest version from ih8sn0w.com
if that does not work, it is very possible it is a hardware issue, and can be only fixed if serviced.

did you make sure you were in PWNED DFU mode?.....
meaning did you receive confirmation from sn0wbreeze it was in PWNED DFU mode?
