    Yeah Im leaning on what BlkCadi already said.....bootnueter fried your baseband and created a hardware fault.

    So basically it leaves you with a couple choices.

    Trash it.
    Sell it on ebay "as-is" and explain that it wont restore.
    Find a used Commboard on ebay and swap it. Which your unlikely to find.

    OR....

    Buy another 2g from ebay with a busted screen for cheap.....and swap the screen from the bad phone you got now onto it. That would prolly be your best bang-for-the-buck bet.

    Yeah its dead.

    But depending on your situation and how much money you had to spend.....

    Some parts on it are still good. Like the screen assembly, which is actually a pretty hard to come by part for the 2g.

    So. you could buy a 2g with a busted screen fairly cheap on ebay and use the good screen you have on the good mainboard of the other phone......and have a completely working phone.

    For example.

    PS- I can do the swap for you.

    yup, if you have patients you can keep trying, but I think she is toast. As cpjr said, you can pick up a 2g really cheap on eBay with a broken screen and replace yours with it. under a hundred bucks prolly.

    Dear Moderator Blkcadi

    Could u pls help me?

    I have spent the last 5 days loosing sleep and reading every forum I can find.

    iPhone originally bought in ATT and activated thru iTunes. Before leaving US I had jailbroken it / Unlocked it last year and was running perfectly fine on 2.2 and with foreign SIMs, until last week.
    This is when, by accident, I think I upgraded to 3.1.2.
    I had redsnowed and pwnaged but maybe in the wrong order. I was trying to upgrade to 3.0 but...
    Now, I have Pwnaged the poor phone about 10 times, but, I still receive "Invalid SIM" message when connecting to iTunes.

    -If I will do a simple iTunes restore (without holding down ALT+Restore to a Custom IPSW) will that lock it for good or will I just have a clear slate to re-start the jailbreak and unlock process?
    - Is there a way to find out what os I had installed or which baseband it is on?

    PLEASE, I am running out of solutions and no one seems to have this problem, anywhere I have searched!
