You have to run a restore through iTunes. You can JB it easiest using blackra1n.

Edit: It's a bitch with the 3gs. You have to run blackra1n everytime you reboot the iphone.

that's not true. the "tethered jailbreak" is on the newer version of the itouch, not any version of the iphone. once you jailbreak the iphone with blackra1n, you don't need blackra1n anymore.

A+, if you run into a situation like this again, try holding the "home" and the "power" buttons at the same time until it restarts. a lot of times, that will clear out the "recovery mode" situation. are you running blackra1n or purplerain to jailbreak? honestly, i haven't even tried the purplerain jailbreak, but the blackra1n jailbreak is as simple as it gets...and it doesn't matter what version of itunes that you have, because the jailbreak doesn't use itunes.

i did do a soft reset but it didnt work. when it would power on, the usb screen would come back up.

then wtf was purplrain for? i dl'd it a while back cause i thought that was the one? After i updated my itunes, it let me fully restore her phone but under my name. i know it lost alot of her info. but at least i got her phone back. I got rid of my iPhone in Oct. and completely forgot about how the whole thing works.

Something is up. The only device that requires a tethered jailbreak via blackrain is the 3rd gen iPod touch. My wife and I both have 3gs iPhones as well as several friends and they're all currently jailbroken on 3.1.2 via blackrain and none have the issue that your friend is having. Without seeing it, I would suggest that your friend download the 3.1.2 firmware and restore to it via iTunes, then jailbreak again and put all of his apps back on.

iirc apple changed the bootrom about 5 months after the 3gs came out. these phones with the new bootrom can only do a tethered jailbreak.

i appreciate the info...that's good to know. i've restarted mine several times since i've upgraded to the new 3.1.2 firmware, and it seems to be working fine and i haven't had to re-jailbreak it. i guess that this new bootrom is not in the new firmware? i got mine in october and my wife got hers in november, so i guess that we both got the ones before this new bootrom was installed...
