    Default restore fail. completly stuck :(
    Hey guys,

    basically quick run down of whats happened and hoppeeefully someone can help!!

    I jailbroke my Iphone 3GS about 6 months ago on firmware 3.1.2 and did it no problems at all and was loving it. anyyyway decided i may aswell restore back to a new iphone and put on the OS4 and thats where things went bad. this is what i did.

    1. Went to settings in iphone and clicked erase all data (this went on for 3 hours in the apple logo with the spinning thing at which point i thought ****** hell and just did a hard reset)

    2. the hard reset did the same thing and just sat in the apple screen with the spinner for an hour and a half.

    3. hard reset again and held down the home button and it came up in itunes saying i need to restore and as soon as i did it said "not elegible for requested build" etc

    4. now it wont even let me get it up in itunes and just keeps spinning.

    somebody pleeeasee pleeasee help i actually feel sick to my stomach stressing about this

    thankyou so so so much in advance

    Are you restoring to 4.01? They aren't signing 4.0 anymore.

    Put it in DFU:

    Attempt a restore then.

    You can never reset everything on a jailbroken device. You'll end up stuck in the apple logo.
    It's fixable, but just annoying. Put your phone in DFU and restore it.

    Hopefully you have your SHSH blobs... Cant restore without going up to 4.0.1 without those blobs.
