    Default Screwed, iphone won't restore
    Scenario: My 3GS iphone running 3.0.1 software was jailbroken. While inquiring if I can upgrade on a pc someone offered to send me there 3.1 software and gave me instruction to throw my iphone into recovery and restore the software onto my phone through itunes.

    Its not working at all. I'm stuck. My phone is stuck. I remember doing that ECID thing on cydia but I don't know where to go from here. Can someone Please point me in the right direction?! I'm desperate.

    Thanks

    Note: My phone is on recovery mode, itune and usb icon and all.

    OR...


    Before you do something rash and upgrade to stock 3.1, you can try to find a good custom 3.1 firmware created with PwnageTool. Preserve the jailbreak at least, if you have no choice but to go to 3.1
