    Unhappy 3GS not recognised in iTunes and not booting!
    I've got a 16GB 3GS, jailbroken with BlackRa1n and unlocked.

    It has been stable and fine for some months now .. then last night I got a "full, must delete some blah blah" message (I didn't see the message, heard from my wife!).

    I didn't do any deleting (because I didn't sese the message), unplugged my phone from my Mac and went to work this morning. Got to the train station and my phone was showing the PineApple logo, waiting to boot up. It has been that way since!

    I let the battery run down, and just before that happened the phone got quite hot! Since I got home this evening, my iTunes will not recognise the phone and it will still not do anything .. .it even seems not to be charging (either from USB or even from the wall). I have the red low battery bar and the lightening bolt but no increase in battery level.

    If you don't mind restoring your iPhone...have you tried putting it into DFU mode?
