    i have a friends iphone 3gs, that he disabled by using the wrong password too many times

    well i took it home restored it and now its stuck in dfu. every time i restore it it just goes back into dfu instead of booting. i've used tiny-umbrella, ireb, recovery fix, etc.

    this thing has blown my mind, any help appreciated..

    Does iTunes give you any errors when restoring?

    What firmware are you restoring to?

    Open tiny umbrella
    Click on advanced
    Deselect box that says set hosts to cydia on exit
    Click apply and close tiny umbrella
    Proceed with the update/restore to 4.3.3

    Do not do this if you need to preserve your baseband, only if you are on official carrier.

    I edited the host file to add the cydia server would that hurt anything?

    This has been bugging me for a week now...

    Yes, your hosts need to be pointed to Apple.

    You may also want to try another computer. One that you havent used tiny umbrella or edited hosts on.
