Managed to get all the ringtones, icons, and dialer backgrounds working just fine. Plugged my iPhone into my computer lat night, and it automatically started updating it. Now every time I turn the phone on, it goes straight to the "Please connect to iTunes" screen. Even tried opening jailbreak again but it just reboots to the same screen. Any suggestions?

Trust me, just restore it, its nearly impossible to brick these phones.

I agree with the previous poster. Just connect it to iTunes and do the restore. Unfortunately, it looks lke you're going to have to start your modding over as the restore sets you back to factory default settings. Good luck!

im having the same problem! and im trying to restore it and iTunes wont read my phone! so i think my phone is bricked!
your phone is not bricked. turn your PC off and turn it back on and plug it in a different port then turn on iTunes and plug it in, it will read the phone.

it doesn't matter if you have a mac or a pc

The iTunes detection of external devices isn't biased of operating systems (external devices with hard drives just don't work that way)

so for those who did have the problem, i believe changing the cable, or having a rebooted computer would have done the job

if the computer sees the iPhone, and iTunes does not, this is iTunes problem and thereforee restart the program and make sure iTuneshelper.exe and the like is running

after experimenting with deleting the phone, and talking to iPhone and having it work, and countless talks with Apple tech, we have concluded its near impossible to brick this phone
