iPhone 3G 4.1 Won't Restore - Error 23
So, I recently received an iphone 3g from a friend for free, its not turning on and he said if I fixed it, I could just keep it, so obviously I'm here trying to make something of it aha! It doesn't turn on at all if it isn't connected to a power source, and when I do connect it to my computer, it will boot up and show the apple logo, then turn off after like 30 seconds and thats it. I managed to get it into dfu mode and tried to do multiple restores. I've put it into dfu mode and tried to restore to stock firmware 4.1, also the old 3.1.3 firmware. I've also entered pwned dfu mode through redsn0w, choosing the stock 4.1 firmware while doing this, then after entering the pwned dfu mode, opening itunes and trying to restore to a custom 4.1 firmware, which still results the same way. Each and every time I try to restore, it will extract software, then verify iphone restore with apple, then begins to prepare the phone for restore, it even looks like its about to restore, screen lights up, m

[FIXED] iPhone 3GS stuck in pwned DFU - Restore error 1600
So today i decided to upgrade my iPhone 3gs from 5.0.1 to 6.1.2.
I tried to first restore my iPhone to 5.0.1 and then received the error 3194, meaning that it could not connect to apple.
Then after a while i figured it out, but got an error 1600.
I then removed the BB from the ispw in order not to upgrade my Baseband, and when tried again, my phone got stuck in the Pwned DFU mode.
It wont get out of it for anything. Tried Tinyumbrela fix, redsn0w fix and ireb fix. None of them worked. It seems to be forever in DFU.
If I try now to restore to 5.0.1 No BB, i get the error 1600 again.
If I try to restore to 5.0.1 stock, i get 3194.
Does anyone know what I can do?
I dont want to lose my phone nor my baseband =P
Is my iPhone gone?

iPhone 3G stuck in recovery/no restore?
Ok so I received an iPhone from a family member today and it was all good, it was Jailbroken and what not. All I know was that it had Cydia and it was on iOS 4.1 custom firmware? (I'm not too sure about JB)
So I attempted to restore it to original settings so I could start fresh with this iPhone (I have an iPad but it's not Jailbroken cause I'm not in to that, just want it to work)
I guess this was the wrong thing, after spending the day adding my contacts then syncing/transferring purchases I hit restore and iTunes downloads the new update and attempts to update the iPhone 3G but fails after I wait all that time.
Now this is when the pain starts, I found myself reaching the 1015 error, assuming this was some problem from JB I investigated until I did some more work arounds and eventually hit a 1060 error.
Now my iPhone is stuck in Recovery mode, I've downloaded fresh original updates/firmware (4.0.1, 4.1, 4.2.1 restores) and attempte

I wanted to erase all the content on it. I went setting >general > reset > erase all content and setting . I waited an hour for it to finish, and than it went to the pineapple screen, and now it is stuck on it. I tried to hold the power and home button for it to turn off, and it turned off.

3GS 3194 Custom Restore error
I got a Iphone 3GS and am having a hard time trying to restore to 4.3.3.
I made a custom IPSW for 4.3.3 with Snowbreeze. I am unsure of the current version cause the owner forgot the passcode and the PC where he synced died. I am trying to restore to 4.3.3 and not regular restore to 5.0.1 with Itunes, because I want to preserve the baseband.
I have been trying with Itunes 10.1 under 7 (32 bit and 64 bit) and Tiny Umbrella but keep getting error 3194. I have tried commenting out in the host file 188.8.131.52 gs.apple.com.
If I set the host as 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com I get a 2500 error.
