    I updated my 3GS to 5.1.1 and downgraded the baseband from 6.15.00 to 5.13.104 a while ago. Last night, the battery died on me.
    Today, when I tried to charge it, it is stuck at the apple logo. It is a loop. It lights up, shows the logo, and then light out. Then, the whole pattern repeats. Is there any way to get the phone back to working condition without an iTUnes restore using the DFU mode?

    It sounds most certainly like it's stuck in a boot loop, you're pretty much stuck with needing to restore. If it were any other loop, there's always a chance to not have to restore. In my personal experiences, I've never been able to get out of a boot loop without a restore (and of course I could be wrong but hey...that's what I know).

    Before you try a full blown restore tools like iReb, iBooty, and TinyUmbrella have tools which kick out of recovery mode, but in my experience they dont always work. I guess you have nothing to lose by trying these first before running a full recovery...

    The device is in a boot loop, not recovery mode. None of those will work in a boot loop. What it is, is the device is attempting to boot up into the OS but cannot and thus restarts itself. However, it never hurts to try. It's just not the target issue here.

    Oh I've posted when I'm tired before too. I've said some pretty wrong things...

    Anyway good luck with your training! I've always wanted to follow my dreams of working with computers and electronics, unfortunately life circumstances doesn't permit that field of work for me.

    Glad you get to follow the path you enjoy. If nobody got to do that, the world would be pretty miserable lol.
