    Unhappy Need Help with my Phone
    ok. I have an iphone problem. I recently downloaded an app from Cydia, i believe it was ActivateMMS2G. I wanted to wait on upgrading to 3.0 till i made sure all the bugs got worked out and this app seemed to tout being able to mms. so i downloaded and it installed and asked to reboot. i click on reboot and it starts to reboot and gets stuck on the pineapple screen. Recently after the pineapple screen now a guy in a grey sweater pops up raising his hands saying something in russian i believe. But its not english. I tried re-jailbreaking my phone cus restoring via itunes just keeps giving me error 13(which i have yet to find what that is). so i figured might as well try to install the new OS and i ran Redsn0w and it starts working i believe goes thru all the stages and finally says done. but my phone gets stuck with the Harddrive picture saying "downloading jailbreak data". What do i do now? I've tried the following a few times each with no sucess. did my phone take a physical dump and i need to trash it or is it still fixable? Please help. wasnt sure where to post this... any help will be greatly appreciated. I have a iphone 2g 8gb and it had the 2.2.1 software before it died. I know i posted this in another section just trying to get as many views as possible. This is the only other post. Thanks again.

    No, you don't restore to 2.2.1. Winpwn? huh. No.
    Did you follow this guide?

    i did follow guide. I used redsnow and followed all directions. I cant restore thru itunes so i grabbed a version of 3.0 and redsnow accepted it. it goes thru all the steps and says done and my phone gets stuck on the "downloading jailbreak data" screen. i let it sit for like 30min and nothing. Im running out of ideas. thanks for your thread ideas though.
