A friend of my mothers gave me an iPhone 3gs, It doesn't seem to have an IOS, So i just went to iTunes to restore it to ios6(My only option since i do not have any shsh blobs that i know of) Left it downloading over night(Very slow download speed here) And in the morning my iPhone 3gs has the Apple logo with an empty bar under it, My computer is saying"Waiting for iPhone".
I have tried putting it into dfu mode, recovery mode. Nothing works to get that bar to move.
I am currently trying on my laptop now but i have to wait 5 hours(Downloading ios6 again to restore to)
I hope it works.
Does anyone have any tips on how to make it move from that empty bar?(No i cannot take it to an Apple store because the closes one we have is 100+miles away
Edit: I would like to get this done today so i can take it to an event we are having at school. And for any grammar mistakes please ignore them sending from my black berry

Unfortunately, iOS 6 is a big download, and took me a while to do a few days ago for my other device (iPad). Have you tried another computer in your house, or maybe try it near a window to get better connection?

I know it is, Took me around 12hours on desktop, Right now because i feared my wifi would go out i bought an cat3e5 cable so my laptop is hooked up to the router by wire. Downloading is not a problem. Just that it gets stuck on Apple logo and it has an empty bar/status bar.
Trying to fix that problem that the bar will not move even when left for hours
