Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
It's not broken. You need to do as I tell. Make sure to count every second.
First, hold the power button (the only button on the top-right corner of your iPhone.
Then, after just a second (literally, 1 second), press and hold the Home button (the only button on the face of your iPhone) at the same time for about 10 seconds. Just to clarify, you must be holding both the power and the Home button during this 10 seconds.
After that, release ONLY the power button and keep holding the Home button for about 10 to 30 seconds longer, until you see this image:
This means your iPhone is already in DFU mode and iTunes from your computer can recognize it already. This also means that you can restore your iPhone and make it operational again.
Now, when you restore, I suggest that you restore to 3.1.2 and not to the latest 3.1.3 software version, so it can be possible for you to jailbreak your iPhone.
And to restore to 3.1.2, here's what you gotta do:
Click here where you will see 2 selections: (1) iPod; and (2) iPhone / iPod touch.
Focus on iPhone / iPod touch and select iPhone 3G (3.1.2/7D11) or iPhone 3G S (3.1.2/7D11) - depending on whether your device is a 3G or a 3G S - and then click download. Tip: it's better if you save it on your desktop.
After the download is finished, open iTunes from your computer, and select your device. You should see the restore button there but before you click it, you must first, hold Alt (or Option) if your using a Mac, or CTRL if your using Windows. This will let you choose what software version you want to restore your iPhone with. So, you must select the one that you just downloaded and click restore.
That should do the trick.
