I have a Iphone 2G 8GB that can NOT be detected via itune but can be charge through the same cable. It's currently stuck at the apple screen after installing nativemms2g.
The itune works fine because I tried with 2 other iPhone and they are both recognized by iTune. I think I may have delete some file on the iphone that prevent it from booting up like iapd. I tried restoring the file via SSH but it doesn't work. I can only SSH to the phone. Can I just copy the root folder of my working iphone and transfer to my mess up iphone?

You may have to put it in DFU mode and restore/jailbreak.
Step 1. Turn off iPhone
Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.
DFU mode will be a blank black screen.

You will have to keep trying, it may be the only way to get the phone to restore.

what you have to do is replace the charger cable I had a problem like that last night just threw it away and replaced the flex cable that holds the speaker working like a charm
