I've recently returned from afghanistan where back in may my phone had never been jailbroken prior to me returning to theater. I updated to the lastest software at that point in time. Once I had arrived back in afghanistan my local cell phone meet a disaterous end when it stopped working (it was a cheapo so i bashed it with a hammer) I was told that the locals at the haji mart on base could rig my phone to work with the local sim cards and networks (because 3.99 a min just wasn't an option) So I had this done I'll be honest I'm completely ignorant about the jailbreaking thing I do know that it was cydia as the icon was on the phone I have no idea what version it was didn't look just used my phone as usual. So here is the problem upon getting back to the states at the end of august. I plugged my phone into the computer and says theres an update so I clicked update now the phone is stuck in recovery mode. Now I've spent the last 2 weeks trying to fix it with several programs and diff methods with no luck. Such programs are redsnow/Irec/Ireb/snowbreeze/tinyumbrella with several diff restore files. I'm completely out of my element here and would appreciate any help.
