well i didn't know what to do so i was going to try and restore my phone with iTunes but i cant do that now. i plug in my phone and it comes up in iTunes as an iPod. why does it think my phone is an ipod now? when i click the restore button it says "software for this ipod is not currently available. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes and try again." now how can i just restore my phone back to factory settings?

edit: well after disconnecting and reconnecting my phone form the pc a few times iTunes recognized my iPhone and it still has everything on it but the iPhone screen is stuck on the Apple logo and i cant use it. when i try to restore my phone from iTunes it says "there was a problem downloading the iPhone software for the iPhone "xxx". the requested resourse was not found."

L2P NOOB!

Ahem, I had to get that out of the way.

Anyway, you need to just replace a specific file on your iPhone to get everything back.

Head over here for more insight:

You need to upload the attachment in that post to your iPhone. Read the the thread through to find out where.

You're not the first person with this problem, and the answers are all here in this Mods forum if you're willing to devote the time to searching it out.

Blargh, my post didn't hit until after your 2nd post it looks like. On my browser I was replying to your first post.

I'll try and help find some posts with your problem, I'm sure I've seen it before.

Some stuff you can try is changing your USB port, just move your plug over one. Fixed a connection problem for myself and a few friends.

Edit-

Okay I've read your posts, give me a sec here.

Okay, first let me explain what happened, and then figure out where to go from there.

Customize has a known bug which can alter your M68AP.plist to read that its an iPod rather than an iPhone. I don't know exactly why, other than I have had the same problem as well as everyone else who has tried to use Customize on 1.1.1.

What we need to find out is if your phone has SSH installed on it, and if you can get back to your blank springboard where just your icons were showing.

Basically you have to get a clean M68AP.plist back on to your phone.

Try this:

Hold the home button and the top power button for 5 seconds, does it automatically power down? Press the power button now, it "should" take you back to your springboard. This worked for me when I was stuck at the Apple screen, its worth a shot.

well i moved from my desktop to my laptop to see if i can restore my iPhone from my laptop and when i click the "restore" button in iTunes this message pops up: "
iPhone Software
Version 1.1.1

IF YOU HAVE MODIFIED YOUR iPHONE'S SOFTWARE, APPLYING THIS SOFTWARE UPDATE MAY RESULT IN YOUR iPHONE BECOMING PERMANENTLY INOPERABLE.

i already have version 1.1.1. i stopped there and did not continue with the restore because i am not sure if it is safe to continue with the restore or if my phone will get bricked. is it safe to continues with the restore?

Basically that was the warning for people who "unlocked" their phone to be used on carriers OTHER than AT&T.

If you just "Jailbroke" your phone so that you can install stuff like NES, then you are FINE.

Apple's warning was for "Unlockers" because it will hurt your phone. There was an error in the "Unlock" software which corrupted your BaseBand. The Update doesn't account for that corruption and puts the phone into a "ACIVATE PHONE" loop.

Go back to Tinman's thread where you learned to jailbreak. There's a post from someone with your exact problem there. Tinman replied with the fix.
