    i was upgrading and jailbreaking 1.1.2 and i was running anysim to allow my fido sim card to work on the iphone. it was unsuccessful so i tried it the second time running anysim but this time the anysim program was loading and it got stucked. so i reset my iphone by pressing home and the top left button. When i tried to turn it back on, the black background with the apple sign showed up like it normally should. however, everything stops here and gets stuck. Please help me! your help is greatly appreciated.

    update:
    i was successful in putting it into recovery mode and it requires itune to restore the iphone. i tried restoring with 1.1.2 firmware. however, it says that there is an unknown error has occured as it tries to restore.

    The best and easiest way to get the iphone into recovery mode is to connect it to your PC / MAC with itunes open. Then hold down the sleep/wake button and the home button to together. You will then notice that iTunes starts to recognise it and you have iTunes logo on your iPhone.

    This can take anything between 15 - 30 seconds if the phone is switched on.

    This works for me everytime regardless of firmware version.

    Has someone found out what to do?

    In my case iTunes recognizes it as soon as it restarts, then looses it's connection.
    Holding home button and sleep/wake button only switches off the iPhone.
