    The Dreaded Error 23...I'm pretty sure it's software oriented. my solution for it in the past has been different than a solution now. I had one back in the 3.0 days. If you're running 3.1.2, which i'm assuming since you are, since it's brand new...the process might be a little different.

    What I recommend you try.

    Jailbreak using Blackra1n. This SHOULD hacktivate it, and bring it to the springboard (assuming the jailbreak will work.)

    Put it in DFU mode.

    Restore in iTunes to factory settings.

    If it's another version of firmware prior to 3.1.X, you will need to use Redsn0w.

    thanks sparkyx i'm also thinking there could definetly be an issue with the battery too. hubby apparently bought a battery that doesn't have the connector on (he was told which one to buy) i think its one of them ones that has to be soldered but the guy who fitted the battery didn't do any soldering so hubby is gonna get a battery which has the connector on nd we'l see how we go from there,
