    Alright so everyone who's all like nope can't be bricked... I'm pretty sure i did it.

    So i had this freezing problem thats been going on for a couple days so i decided i was going to restore it. I decided then, might as well PWN it, so i tried... it got into recovery mode, left recovery mode now it is OFF. I'm pretty sure its permenatly off, i tried holding sleep and home button... nothing. My computer wont reconize it becasue it is OFF. It wont turn on.

    So this pretty much suchs as i spent 700 dollers on it and now it is completly done.

    I would literally pay someone to make it work.

    Well, you could always try to get Apple to give you another. I mean it's worth giving a shot

    Did you do a clean restore with itunes ipsw first or did you use a custom ipsw and try to pwn it again

    Can you provide more information?

    Did you restore to stock 1.1.4 by putting the phone in DFU mode so iTunes recognises it in recovery mode, then restore to 1.1.4 so when complete the phone says it needs to be activated.

    Did you then run WinPwn to Pwn the iPhone, which version did you use and which guide did you follow?

    Finally, have you left you iPhone plugged into the computer for a couple of hours to see if it will come on if enough charge has gone into it?

    That sucks. But I dont know if yours is the first brick. Ive seen some other cases where people have said judt what you did. Any way hope you get a new one.

    Well it was already Pwn'd so i guess i was stupid and thought since it was frozen i would do it again .. then it went to a black screen but i got my computer to reconize it .. it's in recovery mode and iliberty won't kick it out of recovery mode. I'm still clueless on what to do

    So your in recovery mode? Just restore it then...

    Or get iPhuc (In 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 Jailbreak) and type in cmd fsboot
