    need more info than that buddy if you want help.

    does itunes recognise the phone? is it 2g or 3g? what itunes are you using? what operating system are you using ('yes' doesn't help much)? and whats the background of the phone? (bought off ebay etc.?)

    I am just curious, what all have you tried to do... because DFU restore works for 99.9999999% of people in these cases, and it seems like with about 2 seconds of Google searching a simple DFU guide can be found. Anyway, try the DFU restore and let us know how it goes

    What firmware? You can use Pwmagetool (Mac) to build a custom ipsw.

    And then use quickpwn to install.
