    So you mean, you charged your iPhone and while it was charging it was stuck on the bootlogo (white Apple logo) the whole time?

    Which jailbreak did you use and which unlock?

    The lockscreen appeared when it was finished charging or when?

    friday night,the phone had a full charge.saturday morning,the phone was stone dead. put it on charge,a few min later the apple logo came up,and was on it all day.saturday night,i did a restore thru itunes.after it was done restoring,it was looking for a valid sim(which i do not have) now,i dont know what to do.i used redsn0w.8 for jailbreak,and i believe ultrasn0w for unlocking

    Just to be clear here, after the restore did you jailbreak and unlock again?
