    Hi all,

    I currently have an iPhone 3GS 32GB that was jailbroken with blackra1n and unlocked. Unfortunately, the phone has a tethered jailbreak and needs to be jailbroken everytime the phone runs out of battery.

    If the phone runs out of battery, I typically power up the phone and wait for the "plug into iTunes" symbol, at which point I shutdown iTunes and run blackra1n to jailbreak the phone.

    Recently, however, the phone has been stuck on geohot's image after running blackra1n. I tried using a different computer to run blackra1n and nothing is happening. The phone displays the geohot image for about 15 minutes then restarts again.

    I even tried resetting the phone by pressing the menu button and the button on top of the phone to then tried running blackra1n - no results.

    I don't really know what's happening. The phone has never been upgraded in iTunes or in any other manner. I appreciate any help with this matter. Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply. How do I go about restoring my phone? When I first bought it I had jailbroken and unlocked without saving anything. Is there anyway I can restore it to a firmware that can be jailbroken and unlocked. I can't access the phone settings but I know it was using OS 3.1.2.

    i think you should read this thread:

    and DON'T restore if you need unlock, i suppose you do if you had it unlocked...

    Thanks all for your quick replies. I will read the thread suggested by execine and consider restoring if it makes sense. Have a good day.
