    Unhappy Please help!
    i have an iPhone 3GS, was on a tethered jailbreak on 3.1.2 due to me being too lazy to upgrade, i was on holiday and it crashed and turned off so i thought "when i get back ill just run blackra1n and it'll be fine" BUT then i got home and did this, it was stuck on geohots face for 30 mins, then turned off again and went into revery mode, where it stayed while i tryed to restore it with itunes, but now i get now repsonse from the phone at all, no recovery mode icon, only the plug in noise from pc and everytime i try to restore it itunes says "device is not eligable" WHAT CAN I DO PLEASEEEEEEEEEE ?!?!!
    also is there anyway or retreiving my lost photos and videos as my holiday snaps were pretty good ?

    i'll love you all forever if you can help me, i might even make you a gift and send it to you!

    Are your SHSH blobs backed up in Cydia? When you opened Cydia last did it say "This deveice has SHSH's on file for firmwares 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1" in green letters at the top?

    Apple has stopped allowing people to restore to any firmware except 4.0.2. If you have your SHSH blobs backed up in Cydia you can change your host file and Cydia will authorize you to restore to a lower firmware.
