I am trying to jailbreak and unlock my brothers 3GS as i have successfuly done so using this sites help before, HOWEVER....
Once i had installed the CF, iTunes will not register the device and it goes in to the recovery loop.
I have tried re-installing the firmware but no luck.
Is there anyway to get the device out of the recovery loop and functioning again?

Try using tiny umbrella to "exit recovery"
The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella
If that doesnt work try doing a regular restore unless you have installed the ipad baseband then you will need to restore to a custom firmware

iPad baseband has been installed.
I think it's a hardware issue. I had the phone jailbroken and running but the handset will not activate through iTunes even though I have an official carrier sim.
Wifi and Bluetooth are greyed out so I can't even use Cydia to install ultrasn0w either.
I think it's screwed!

Yes... After a few mins of leaving the handset it has a pop up advising that a restore is needed as it cant make or receive calls.
