    I tried searching for issues similar to mine but found none.

    I was trying to clean up the data on my first gen phone to sell it to a friend. I was going to just restore from my original ipsw that i created to put it into 2.0 mode to begin with. However, I come to find out a friend of mine deleted it off my mac, so I was messing around on the phone and just decided to use the Reset data under General Settings. It said it would delete all the data and take roughly 1 hour.

    It did it and then when I came back the phone was sitting on the pineapple logo. I waited a little longer and it did nothing else besides show the logo.

    I tried rebooting the phone and it still shows the pineapple logo and then shows a rotating animation that it is doing something, then that stops moving.

    I can't restore it because mac acts like it is not connected.....

    Any ideas?

    bump anyone....

    no ideas?

    I wonder if Apple will help me out....

    Have you tried putting the phone into DUF mode? hopfully this way iTunes will pick it up, then try restoring with the 2.0 Firmware.

    Also could try a diff USB port / Diff computer?

    it would be great if I could get it into DFU....

    as I stated, I have tried 3 different ways to put it into DFU mode and all have failed. It just shows that Pineapple logo and does nothing else.

    Hmmm...I'm in the process of doing that exact same thing. I'll report back and see if I have that same error! Crossing fingers & hope I don't! Sorry...

    Update: Ok, I had the exact same thing happen to me too. But I just put the phone in DFU mode and restored it again with my pwned firmware....All is good again!

    Good luck!
