Iphone 3g complete crash!

Hello ginko i wondering if you could help me. i have an intel imac and an iphone 3g  which 'was' jailbroken. when i was playing on an app 'downloaded from the jailbreak software (cydia was what i downloaded it from)'. the screen went blank and the spinning icon appeared. a few minutes later the apple logo appeared. i waited a while, 'maybe about 20-30 mins'... and then i held the home and power button reseting the phone. still the apple logo stayed on the screen even after 20 mins. so i put it into DFU mode and of course itunes loaded up on my computer as expected. so i thought screw jailbreaking it coz its already messed up my phone so much. i just want to restore it to what it was like when i first got it. (obviously i would load the apps i downloaded from the apps store later on and my music and such) but when i click restore it says....the iphone "iphone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (2006).    ...   i'm so sorry my story has gone on for so long but any help will be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I can think, is that you got hold of a bad package cause my iphone edge did the same thing. When restoring make sure to let iTunes download the firmware so that you dont get an uncompatable version of firmware and get a head splitting head ache like i did, i downloaded the 3G firmware off the net only to relized almost three hours later that that version of the 3.0 firmware cant be loaded on the edge.

Jail breaked my iphone 3gs but its network is still showing as vodafone, how do i choose network as its 02 i need


There are two different things that commonly get mixed up.

The jailbreak is the instalation of cydia on your iphone. Through cydia, you can do a lot of things, such as changing your iphone completely in any possible way.

Then, there's the unlock. The unlock allows your iphone to connect to any network, as long as you have the SIM card of that network installed. This is achieveable by many ways. It is easier to unlock the iphone when it is jailbroken, but the jailbreak itself doesn't give you the unlock. You can also unlock it by other means (when not jailbroken), but it is more difficult.

Hope it helped

Can I use multitasking on a jailbroken iPhone 3G?


Welcome to FixYa. Short answer: yes, you can enable some sort of multitasking on a jailbroken iPhone devices, even on an iPhone 3G - however, your hardware won't be able to handle the severe increase in memory usage, making your phone highly unstable. I would advise against trying to use this, your phone simply can't handle it.

My Iphone 3G blutooth doesntwork and have internet problems.


the iPhone doesnt actually have the ability to send and recieve files from other phones. Its just for the headset ability. If your phone is Jailbroken you may find some programs out there that allows you to send and recieve messages and find other phones via Bluetooth. YES going on the internet without a DATA PLAN will cost you money. It depends on what carrier you are with, it will very on how much per kilobyte. You can not record videos unless you phone is jailbroken. Then you can download the ability to use the camera as a video recorder. Some of the programs are the following: Cycorder and 3G video recorder. Hope this helps!
