Help!!!! Hi folks, I had my iPhone 3G firmware 3.1.3 jail broken with Pwnage Tool, but for some reason I did not get connection to my cell phone provider, so I tried to unlock with blacksnow according to your instructions. For some reason in step 12 the phone got stuck and said \"loading Cydia\", but did not continue, so I left it alone and after a while it seemed to automatically reboot, but got stuck with the \"pineapple\" symbol. It does not continue to load and does not react to any button anymore. I can reboot with the same result holding on/off and home buttons, but nothing else. When I connect it to the computer iTunes does not recognize the phone and the phone does not react being connected in any way. Help! What went wrong and more important: How can I fix it? please Helppp Best regards,

I figured it out. You need to go into recovery mode (not DFU) and restore the iphone (using the jailbreak firmware) with itunes. Google and you shall receive.

same happened to my iphone... restored to factory settings using firmware 3.1.2. keep the home and power buttons pressed and plug in the phone, do not release until itunes tells you that there\'s a phone to be reset... then just go on with selecting the firmware and restore the phone... after having firmware 3.1.2 on it, just install your unlock as explained above and it works fine...

I have the same problem. Jailbreaking goes very smooth. Unlocking appears to run normal but right as it finishes, it says \"reloading data\" and eventually locks up. I have tried this numerous times and ways but no luck.
