    keep holding down home button and pressing power button in for 5 - 10 seconds. after a few moments it should jump to a DFU mode.
    i've been in that situation a few times. this method worked every time tho. and still got my little 2g to this day..
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    I did that but all i get is the "error 9"
    I tried everything i found on the net, even restore it using tiny umbrella (cause i pressed the make my life easy on cydia like a week ago), but nothing works.... All i get is the stupid error 9, which i think is something apple is doing in order to avoid people for jailbroken their iphones, iīm sure is not a hardware problem (i read some people thinks error 9 is a hardware problem...)
    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks!

    Restart your comp and switch USB ports during the restart. Set into DFU or Recovery and try again to restore.

    If that fails, try a custom fw and see what happens.

    Does the error appear at the end of the restore or before it begins.

  9. #9
    at the end

    I have to say that i pressed the "make my like easier" button on cydia like a week ago, I tried to restore from tiny umbrella but error 9 persists.... I dont know if iīm doing something wrong
    Will my iphone be bricked 4 ever?
    Iīm sure is not a hardware problem, the phone is in mind condition, the pinnaple came when i was upgrating 2 apps from the apple store.---

    If you won't know fir sure if you have your SHSHes tinyumbrella should tell you, somewhere.

    Check to see which you have and download the proper firmware.
