So I really think I screwed things up. In the downgrading process I used ibrickr to reboot the phone after installin 1.1.2. Now it my phone is just running lines of code. It has done this for 20 min. Every once in a while it flashes to the Apple logo, and starts again. Please help:sick::sick::sick:

plug your phone into your computer hold the sleep button and the home button this will force the phone into restore mode. iTunes will notice that its in it and you will be able to restore your phone

most likely you'll have to force it into DFU mode, so while its plugged in do restart it by holding sleep and home while its running its endless code loop, then as soon as you see the Apple logo again hold sleep and home, yet as soon as it shuts off continue holding the home button. iTunes should now recognize it and you'll be able to restore.

I don't really know. If I hold the sleep and home button i get the yellow triangle but before I can tell iTunes to update it, the code on the phone starts running and iTunes gives me an error 5

try and download the DFU file found here: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25695

extract that and throw it anywhere in your c: drive (im assuming you're on windows). Then connect the iPhone, click start, then select run and type:

c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu

then click ok, this should send your phone into dfu mode and iTunes should be able to run a restore.
