    Samsung Galaxy S, iPod touch 3g

    Solution?

    Have you tried this?

    Press sleep and home button about 10 sec.
    Now your device should remain at the Apple boot logo for 60 sec.
    And then it should works perfectly.

    Iphone 3g Unlocked/Jailbroken
    redsnow only jailbreaks 3gs as tethered, so if it died it should work if you plug it into your computer. What i did was re jailbreak it with greenpois0n. put it in dfu mode and boot with a custom firmware

    After Restore my iphone to 4.2.1 got struck in DFU Mode. Tried different ways and No luck. So I used iREB and TinyUnberella and restored a custom firmware of 4.2.1. Then by using RedSn0w, i jailbroke the phone. Worked fine and iPhone came into usual state. Here the major issue happened......While my phone is plugged into PC and iTunes is on, Suddenly I plugged out the cable. Then my screen gone white. So what so ever I'm doing, my iphone is responding in DFU mode, but nothing I can see on screen as it is always "White Blank" like a flash light.....any inputs are welcome...
