    My iPhone 3g 16gb 3.1.2 jailbroken & unlocked is stuck on the apple logo and after about 2 minutes the loading sign loads for a spilt second then freezes and then the phone vibrates then restarts again. I know its from uninstalling an app or turning off the phone while an app was installing from cydia. I tired hard reset, doesnt work, I tired iRecovery doesnt work, I tired DFU mode didnt work, Ran blackra1n again but didnt do anything How do I fix this WITHOUT doing a restore? If a restore is the only resort which program can I use to restore it to keep 3.1.2

    Have you tried putting it in DFU mode?
    3.1.2 I would use blackra1n.

    Try using redsn0w 9 and if you have your shsh files stored on cydia you can restore to 3.1.2 there is a thread in MMI guides section to help you out with that.

    I was deleting info and applications from a Jailbroken 3GS running 3.1.2 and I went to Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. It brought the Apple Logo and the Spod and can't go any further. Tried restoring with Itunes modifying the "Hosts" file to point at Saurik's server but seems I do not have one on file, it comes with the message "This device is isn't elegible..bla bla bla". Iphone Browser cannot see the Iphone to delete any conflicting file and I do not have an IP to SSH with WinCP. Is there any other way/software to SSH or restore to 3.1.2? Thanks.

    I was able to restore to 3.1.2 by downloading a custom firmware and restoring through ITunes modifying the HOSTS file to point to Saurik's server with no problem.

    You COULD have unlocked it if you had not upgraded the baseband but unfortunetly you did and there is no unlock for 05.12.01 or a way to downgrade at the moment so you are stuck in that reguard, however your jailbreak is alive and well.

    And if I helped you please hit the "Thanks!" button in the lower right of my post! Thanks

    Shift on a PC ALT-Option on a mac. Either of those will definitely work
