    Default upgraded to 3.0 firmware and phone is stuck...
    i have the Iphone 3G.. i jailbroke it back in april using the pwnage on the iclairified website and it worked awesome ever since... well saturday i wanted to upgrade from the 2.2firmware to the 3.0firmware but i was in a little bit of a hurry... i guess i didnt take everything off with the old jailbreak software and when i did a restore/upgrade to the 3.0 it messed up pretty bad... all of my apps that i had in folders will not come up on the screen even though Itunes says they are there... i tried doing a restore to the 2.2 jailbreak firmware and it wont allow that or doing a restore to the 3.0 jailbreak firmware... i used pwange to do the 2.2jailbreak and i was trying to use redsn0w to do the 3.0 jailbreak... any help what so ever would be GREATLY appreciated fellas... i work on heavy equipment for a living so auto electric is what im use to not phones and lap tops... so im a little dumb when it comes to this stuff...

    Go to Settings/General/Restrictions enable and then disable. Should bring them back.

    Could be an issue with you firmware. Are you using the one you downloaded through iTunes, or did you get it off the internet?

    When you open up redsn0w, the second thing you do is browse for firmware. Use the firmware you got through iTunes. After you follow the rest of the steps, your phone is jailbroken and you don't need anymore firmwares. What else are you talking about?

    After you restore, you will download redsnow and you will use a firmware named iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw that there is a link for on the iClarified site.

    Default Help unbricking my 2G iPhone while updating to 3.0
    Well, it looks like my iPhone 2G is bricked and can't get out of restore mode. I downloaded the 3.0 ispw for 2G and did an update by holding alt/opt and clicked restore. Everything went as normal and it got stuck at at the end of the process after it said restoring on itunes and the status bar was all full. I let it sit for an hour and still stuck. Now, I tried going through pwnage again and it wont get past the apple logo. I get a error code (9). Then unplugged and tried again I got error (1618). It also gets stuck on a blank white screen during the process. HELP PLEASE!!!
