    Default Help Meeee!!!
    My iPhone was stuck at installer, then i was looking through the forums and i saw to hold down the lock and home buttons for 10 seconds, and it reset. but now, it is stuck on the startup apple logo, with the clockwise cog symbol going around and then after about 10 minutes of this, it stops, and the cog just lights up and stays lit and stops moving. HELP! WHAT DO I DOOOO?

    If iTunes does not recognize it at all to restore it from there, you need to put it back into DFU mode (restore) manually.
    Turn off your iPhone first (press the power until it shuts off)
    If it does not respond, turn it off by pressing power and the home.
    Then turn on the phone holding both the power and the home, as soon as you get the apple logo, let go of the power and continue holding the home until the "connect to iTunes" appears.
    The above should work 99% of the time.
    If none of this works, try iBrickr, Independence, or Ziphone to see if they help. There is also a DFU utility that you can run at the DOS command prompt.
    I've also let the the batteries run dry, and then turned it on plugged like I mentioned before.

    Do you know how to acces inside the phone filesystem with SSH or USB? Then enter inside the Applications folder and delete the last App that you have install. If that's the problem, the phone unfreezees inmediatly. If that occurs could be for the 80 Apps limit, then install Summerboard (only install it, you dont must to do anything more) and you could install all the Apps that you want.

    If you dont know to acces the filesystem, bad luck, just restore and unlock one more time.

    (sorry for my siouxglish) ;-)
