    Question Please HELP...Terribly STUCK...Newbie with 3G S blackra1n loop
    I'm a n00b and this my first posting here. Apologize if I sound stupid with my questions. Any help would be a big life saver of my extremely important data.

    I'm trying to recover my iPhone 3G S and here is my issue:

    My 3GS was jailbroken with blackRa1n RC2 in 2009. It is a tethered jailbreak and that is killing me now. Recently, I also unlocked my iphone with ultrasnow RC1 and it went thru fine. My specs are baseband version: 05.11.07 with firmware version 3.1.2, 7D11. In June 2011, I accidentally ran jailbreakme.com from Safari on my iphone and it caused trouble in booting my iphone 3G S. I then rebooted with BlackRa1n RC3 and things were ok thereafter. Two days ago, I dropped my iPhone and the guy who fixed the broken glass suggested that he can fix my iPhone 3G S to go for a untethered jailbreak. I agreed to his suggestion and he screwed up something on my iPhone and now the iPhone goes into a infinite loop into recovery mode with iTunes logo and back to the apple logo. I ran blackra1n RC3 50 times in a row without any success (by reading the excellent threads here). I also used redsn0w with original 3.1.2 firmware and it didn't work either. The data I have (300+ photos, 20+ audio recordings, contact information) are all extremely important for me and I don't want to lose them at any cost. Unfortunately, I don't have a backup at all.

    I read a posting on backing up iPhone disk image and restoring it and I'm very interested in it. Also, I don't have OpenSSH installed previously and don't know what to do. I would greatly appreciate anybody's help in letting me understand in a step by step way (if possible) to create an image out of the iphone data content and also wanted to know if it will work in my case?

    Please help.

    Right now, I'm running blackra1n and it actually paused on the 7th time it started automatically. This is the log:

    Once I close all of the "Enjoy dialog boxes", it resumed again.

    Anybody please?

    I'm desparate and don't know what I do. I have all my newborn pictures and I cannot lose them at all. Losing them is like killing myself.

    HELP ME PLEASE...HELP ME PLEASE...HELP ME PLEASE...

    I forgot to add some more information:

    All along, I was using iTunes 10.x and just formatted my machine completely and installed iTunes 9.1 64bit as I'm running Windows 7 home Premium 64 bit.

    Also, before I did the unlock last month, I saved the SHSH using TinyUmbrella:

    4234202094991-iphone2,1-4.1.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-4.3.3.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-5.0b1.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-5.0b2.shsh

    And after the unlock was done, I saved the SHSH files again:

    4234202094991-iphone2,1-4.1.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-4.3.3.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-5.0b1.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-5.0b2.shsh
    4234202094991-iphone2,1-5.0b3.shsh

    Also, as per the iPhone box, on the back, the serial number is 87940******. So, is this Week 40 with newer bootrom?

    Will this help in any way to do a non-destructive restore to factory settings? Unfortunately, I didn't save the 3.1.2 SHSH file from Cydia when I jailbroke the iPhone.

    This forum is my only *HOPE*.

    tbh people would normally help, but google is your best friend as this is so old
    im busy right now so cant

    but:
    1. do you need the unlock? if not, update to 4.3X and jailbreak using jailbreakme.com
    2.if u need 2 the unlock find a 4.3X ispw with ultra snow installed

    again if this does not make sense wait till some1 with more time arrives

    Hi metaljay:

    Million thanks to your first reply.
    At this point, atleast booting to the phone home screen is a MIRACLE EVENT. Then, I can quickly salvage data using iPhone Explorer/Iphone browser or DiskAid.

    How do I update to 4.3x? If you're referring to Restore thru iTunes, then I think it is destructive and I might lose data. But, if you're referring to some other way, it would be awesome to know more about it.
