Follow these instructions to put your phone into DFU mode:
1. Connect to your computer, hold the power and home buttons down for 10 seconds
2. As soon as the iPhone powers off, (black screen) release the power button (but keep holding the home button down). (If you see the apple logo or connect to itunes logo you are not in DFU mode so try it again)
3. After about 20 seconds or less, Itunes should see your iphone. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPhone is in DFU mode.
Now iTunes should ask you to restore its firmware.
Restore back to 1.1.4 and then do the iliberty+ jailbreak again.

it just says itunes has deducted an iphone in recovery mode. you must restore your phone before you can use it with itunes.
i then restore and it says your iphone could not be restored an unknown error occured.
i had some luck yesterday where i did a restore and then it started to work again, not properly though it was saying enter unlocked sim etc like iliberty had worked but didn't recognise the sim and the menu wouldn't come up and itunes was saying sim not recognised. so tried to get iliberty to work again and i'm back to the same stage again!!!! i have my phone stuck on the screen with the itunes and usb symbols. doesn't seem to go into restore mood properly.
i'm on newest itunes 7.7 i think.
i forgot to say i also tried to use ibricker but it didn't register that I had my phone plugged in

I am in the exact same situation. I have a 1st gen iphone and I cannot restore to any firmware (custom or standard). I am stuck in the screen with usb cord connect to itunes. I beleive my iphone is currently running 2.0 firmware, although I am not sure. I have tried everything.. dfu restores, non-dfu restores, itunes 7.5/7.7, pwnage tool 220.127.116.11, ibrickr, downgrading 2.0 to 1.1.4 following trustworthy tutorials.... nothing seems to work. Everytime I try to restore to any firmware I get an unknown error ussually in the 1600s. Ive been trying to get my iphone working for the past 3 days with no success, by this point I am ready to give up.
Any ideas will greatly be appreciated.

Please tell me why all of you used iLiberty to jailbreak and unlock iPhones with firware 2.0?
iLiberty does not support FW 2.0
You need to use the Pwnage tool. Make sure you are using the correct tool for either a Mac or PC.Dirty as I wanna be!

i doubt you will get much help here. you need to tell people what firmware you are on, what you were on when trying to do the iLiberty stunt. What os you are using, what version of the tool you were using, and what verision of iTunes ect.
Also, you should be sure about these things. The answers you will get depend on this info. Noone will waste time if they don't have specifics. My guess is this has probably been covered somewhere, but w/o spcifics it's hard to tell.

remove itunes 7.7 completely remove any .dll also.
install 7.5 or 7.6
get phone into dfu mode
restore firmware to 1.1.4
Try iliberty again.
as state above iliberty+ does not work with 2.0 this is for 1.1.x firmware.
this worked for me.Yeah I'm an iPhoneaholic!! So What!!!
4s on 5.1.1 natural
4 on 5.1.1 jailbroken on Straight Talk
2G's on 1.1.4, 3.1.3
