    I sold my iphone 3g that's been unlocked and jailbroken. It's on 3.1.3 firmware. I wanted to delete any stuff that was on it that was personal to me. I didn't realize that deleting everything though the settings reset option that I would fubar the phone. As soon as it rebooted it froze up immediately. I restored the 3.1.3 firmware and then thought it would be easy from there. I tried to use blackrain and it acted like it worked but hung on a dark but lit screen. I then tried spirit and I get

    INFO: Now listening for devices...

    INFO: read igor/map.plist

    INFO: Connected to the AppleMobileDevice.

    INFO: Version iPhone1,2_3.1.3

    INFO: Connecting to mobilebackup...

    INFO: Sending files via AFC.

    FATAL(__LINE__): Assertion failed (dl.c:198): 0 == (AMDeviceStartService(dev, service, &it, NULL)) (but it was -402653091)

    198

    So I tried the snowbreeze firmware in ireb and I couldn't get it to boot up in restore mode to install the patched firmware. It went into restore but never crashed with ireb. I also get error 1600 with itunes. Im kind of out of ideas at this point. Oh I also checked in forcast and it says it can be jailbroken. So not sure what is left to try. Oh also does it matter that I used the 3.1.3 firmware 3.1.3 (3G): iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw.
    That seemed like the right one.

    Did you save your SHSH blobs when you first jailbroke it?

    I didn't.. I tried to when I did my ipad but it said it was unable to do it. I thought the 3g phones couldn't be shshed

    Here is the other option. If I take the update to 4.XX would that possibly be eayer to jailbreak. Also I hear the 3g phones do well under 4.XX firware upgrades is that correct

    Well then you can try using iRecovery to kick it out of the recovery loop, and then after that I'm afraid you're going to have to upgrade to 4.0 because Apple doesn't sign restores to 3.1.3 anymore. Luckily, you can use Redsn0w from there to jailbreak your 4.0 device.

    Redsn0w is how I got my start on jailbreaking (way back on firmware 2.0) and even as a n00b it was moderately simple for me. Its not as glamorous as blackra1n or spirit, but it gets the job done.

    The latest 4.XX software is able to be jail broken? Before I do that though there's nothing else I can try?

    Just update to 4.0.1. I'm sure the jailbreak will be released very soon.

    Well, I hope you have saved your shsh blobs. Otherwise, try using iBrickr to get you off of that screen. If you did save your shsh blobs, just follow my previous link and rejailbreak! After re-loading 3.1.3 back on of course.
