I had a problem with my jailbroken 3G I phone not turning on. It shut off one day and everytime i tried to restart it the apple logo would pop up and stay up for 30 sec or so then the screen would just go black and shut off. I tried everything and finally i just held the top power button forever until finally it turned back on, I probably held it for over a minute beefore it turned back on but thankfullly it did, i wasnt happy about the idea of paying $200 for another I phone.
