    Had his same issue at least 5 times. you just need to restore. It will not boot out of DFU mode.

    Try again
    Took me 5 tries but I finally got it. I had to use windows xp (windows xp mode on vista didn't work for me)

    EVERYTHING works though, inlcuding google maps. My only issue is I have 7.3 gigs of total space and only 7.1 available. I don;t know where that stinking file is or how to delete and nobody helps me T_T lol

    no prop about the help
    DO NOT restore to 1.1.3 EVER
    Do 1.1.1, jailbreak, oktoprep, 1.1.2, jailbreak and then the ibrickr 1.1.3 jailbreak program
    Its a B*TCH but once you get it working it's worth it

    You shouldn't need to unlock again, no.

    Well. No. It works, but not always.
    ANYWAY...i had my phone jailbroken on 1.1.1 w/the 1.1.3 baseband. However, i was stuck on the "chcking iPhone screen". How long should that normally take. Cuz after 15 minutes i quit and restored to 1.1.1 but now its stuck in DFU mode again

    EDIT: well i usually kick the phone out of DFU mode with winstaller and by clicking on "Activate". I have done it that way with previuos phones over 20 times. And i though...."who cares, i will try winstaller again...and it worked!" wish m more luck as i tr to get to 1.1.3

    EDIT: wow.....i go to 1.1.3 jailbroken but the signal.app doesnt give me a signal
