hello everyone! i am in need of HELP!

i have iPhone version: 1.0.2, i have never updated. just because i thought it was going to brick the phone.

but the problem is, is that today i used the INSTALLER program on the iPhone and downloaded some SUMMERBOARD themes. which it has NEVER caused me any problems. and i tried to download some other ones. but i don't remember which it was. but right AFTER i finished downloading it. I THOUGHT it was fine and never checked it out due to being busy at work. so after a couple of hours i find out that my phone was off. so i turn it on, and now its always loading on the spring board. and i cant even SYNC my iPhone to my computer so i can do a RESTORE. i have left it on for hours. and still no fix.

PLEASE! i beg you! anyone out there, if you have any solutions to this! i will be forever in your debt! thanks in advance!

if i didn't explain myself enough please let me know if you need more INFO. that i might of missed out.

ok, so i tried that, i know that if you HOLD down the wake/sleep button with the HOME button it will RESET the iPhone. i tried it and when i do RESET it and RESTART the iPhone. it goes back to the same thing. first is the ICON that shows up with the APPLE, than it goes to the iPhone springboard and it goes back to LOADING and LOADING over and over again. it loads. stops for a couple of secs. i can move around for 3-5 secs max and it will LOAD again.

so i tried what you told me to do, i connect the USB to my comp. either HOLD it down the sleep/wake with home button and RESTART it while its plug in to the USB and nothing happens, the computer doesn't find the iPhone. tell me if i am doing something wrong.

thanks for the reply though!

Plug your iPhone to the usb and then press and hold the power and the home button at the same time it will reboot but keep on pressing it next time it will boot,(let it boot twice while holding) an itune logo will appear and now you can restore, try it it works

To put it in restore mode you must hold the POWER and HOME button at the same time. Count to 10 slowly and close your eyes because looking at your phone can mess you up. At 10 RELEASE THE POWER BUTTON AND HOLD ONTO THE HOME BUTTON. With your iPhone connected to iTunes, iTunes will reconize an iPhone in recovery mode and you can restore your iPhone or upgrade to 1.1.1 and do the same thing 1.0.2. can do with more features.
