    Default Frozen iPhone 3GS
    I have a 3Gs and it went into restore loop (after pressing both buttons) it starts with the white apple and loops on and off but never stopping showing the apple sign. I read on one of the posts about leaving buttons pressed until a USB and iTunes logo appears. It does, but when I connect it to the iTunes software it wants to restore it with the new 3.1.3 software. I dont want to lose my unlocked/jailbroken status. How can I restore to 3.1.2 without iTunes trying to install 3.1.3? I CANT USE MY CELL! Thanks

    Mine does that every once in awhile. If I connect it to my computer via USB with iTunes open and leave it sit for 10-15 minutes it comes back. Don't press buttons, just have patience. At least this works for me. No clue why....
