Well i was on 2.1 firmware (jailbroken) and decided to update to 2.2.1 today. I downloaded the firmware and launched iTunes, held shift and clicked update and chose the firmware and it gave an error, probably because i didn't update to 2.2.0 first? Stupid i know..

But now all i have is an iPhone with the usb and iTunes logo on it (DFU mode?). I tried to restore to 2.1 firmware as i have that downloaded on my computer but it just gives an error too. What do i do?

Please Help!

Im from UK so im with o2. I tried doing it through iTunes. It starts downloading some "iPhone Software Update", and then right at the end after downloading all 246mb of it, it stalls for a few seconds and then it gives an error message :

Edit - I watched it do the restore with the custom chosen firmware and it seems to fail after the verifying of iPhone. "Restoring Firmware" is where it fails at, gives the message :



Im really stuck.
