    Hi,
    I have been trying to resolve my iphone issue for the last several hours!!!

    With Blackra1n I was able to successfully unlock my iphone. I have been using my iphone now for several days until I noticed I couldnt use youtube. After searching the net I found that if I reset the network settings it would all be sorted... Thats when it all went wrong. When I did this the iphone did a hard reset and since then I keep getting the tethered itunes logo.

    I tried to use blackra1n a number of times with no luck. Until I found an article on using redsn0w as a substitute.

    I have just tried to use redsn0w and although I seem to successfully been able to install it, it cant boot!!! Just get the itunes - usb logo!!!!

    Can someone please help me before I go made : (((( ???

    Thanks for your time,
    Paul.

    You may have a tethered jailbreak, use blackra1n to boot...

    You say you've already tried using blackra1n to boot?

    Yeah, you're not being all that clear, could you possibly clarify?

    your stuck in a blackra1n boot loop, to get out of it, keep your iphone connected to your pc and run blackrain in a loop, so it will show geohots face and then it will switch off again and show geohots face again and it will keep going in a loop like this, let this happen overnight and it should be back at your lockscreen by morning.

    Honestly I say DFU restore jailbreak and unlock again. Easiest way, you won't have to mess with downloading new programs and messing with files. Just try it all over again and hopefully it will work.

    DFU restore, then use redsn0w... blackra1n sucks. Find out if it is a MC model though, they are still teathered

    He might not be able to restore though because from what he has said its the new bootrom 3GS and he might not have his shsh's backed up for 3.1.2
