02-02-2011, 06:23 AM #1iPhone 3GS stuck in Apple logo and wont boot
Mod/Experts, I need your help in fixing my iPhone 3GS 32GB. I had an unlocked 3GS phone that was running fine for months. I had to give that to my bro and so decided to wipe out the phone by using the Reset Contents and Settings. I put the phone on charge before doing this and the iPhone went into a stuck mode. It is stuck in the Apple logo and wont proceed further. It was running 4.2.1 before. I am not sure about the baseband or any other techhy details about the phone.
Today I tried to get the phone in DFU mode and iTunes recognized it. After 30 mins of restoration, it failed with an error. What do I do now?
I want to flash the iPhone again and then unlock it for use (any version or baseband is fine with me). Please help me!!!!
Moderator/Experts: Appreciate if someone can send me the steps to fix this. I need to fix the iPhone and had over to my bro. You can email me at [email protected] with the steps and the links to the files.
Thanks in advance.
Additional Info: I was on 4.1 with Baseband 6.15 before formating my iPhone.

Thanks Mod.... I went through various tutorials and was able to fix the iPhone with 4.2.1 and 6.15.0
I also was able to unlock my iPhone and it is working as before. But the tethered reboot issue is there. Got to live without rebooting the phone.
Thanks once again... MODMYI ROCKS!!!

mukundan, do you have the new bootrom or old? I guess it's the new one. Also, what baseband are you on now?

I had and have the new bootrom. I am now in 4.2.1 and 6.15.0
All fine except the reboot issue. Waiting for a fix.
Mods, any ETA you have from the Dev team?

I am trying to get my brothers 3GS handset out of recovery loop, but i can't do so.
I have restored what i think is the correct CF but once it goes to activate the handset in iTunes it says that the Sim card is not registering and the handset then displays a message saying it needs a firmware restore.

Friends/Mod, I have not kept myself updated on the latest. Is the untethered JB for 3GS 4.2.1 released for Windows? I am still using the tethered JB and somehow manging to use the phone without restarting it.
Friends/Mod, I googled and found out that greenpois0n 4.2.1 untethered JB for Windows is released. I am currently in redsn0w 4.2.1 tethered. Can I re-jailbreak using greenpois0n 4.2.1 untethered on top of the current redsn0w 4.2.1 tethered?
Please guide me with the process along with the appropriate links. Thanks in advance.

Thanks mod. I am gonna try this today. One last thing. I am currently unlocked using ultrasn0w. Will I loose the unlock after JBing with greenpois0n? Will I be able to unlock again using Cydia?
