    Default Iphone 3gs stuck in recovery mode loop. Not info on the phone. Unable to restore

    Hello, I hope someone can help.

    I gave my girl my old iphone 3gs. Im pretty sure I used greenpoison to jailbreak it and then ultrasnow to unlock, this was a while back so I cant really remember what firmware she had...I'm guessing maybe 4.0.1 or something like that. Everything was working fine but yesterday she claim to have had issues with the mute button, it went on and off automatically. This morning the phone was in recovery mode (she didnt installed anything or updated anything, in fact she hadnt plug the phone to the computer for over a month). I have used irecovery, tinyumbrella and other tools to kick the phone out of recovery mode but it useless. I don't remembet the baseband, but the phone was bought nearly two years ago. I saved the shsh but when I plug the phone, tiny umbrella puts a ? sign and does nothing...I started the shsh server but it keeps going forever, nothing happens...the phone always comes back to the connect to itunes screen. I tried restoring with itunes to 4.3.3 and 4.2.1 but I get a message that says "device isn't eligible for the requested build"....I have no clue what to do...right now I'm downloading 4.1 since someone here sugested that apple was still signing this firmware...any other ideas? thanks!

    if you are using TSS server to verify your restore through iTunes, you must download the blob first. click save shsh and requesting blob from both cydia and apple can be done from the advance tab of TU. Once your blob is downloaded which you can see from general tab , hightlight your device and start tss server and keep it running until your restore is finished.
    If you plan to restore to 4.1 , you don't need to use TSS server if you wish to verify your blob with apple server. Point hosts file towards apple server can also be set through TU.
