Hi, while trying to reactivate 3 gs with redsnow I receive the ERROR! Please perform clean "slide to power off" and try again. Problem is, 3gs is stuck in "connect to iTunes" and I can not perform clean slide off. Even recovery with SHIFT and new Firmware ofer iTunes is impossible.

I am lost!

How can I get back to shut down correct without "Start&Home" Button.

3gs is in DFU

Thx

D

What happens when you try to restore with iTunes? Do you get an error message from iTunes?

3gs is stuck in "connect to iTunes" and 3gs is in DFU are mutually exclusive. Which is it?

Use redsn0w's Recovery Fix under the Extras page, then try jailbreaking again.

Just hold the power button until it shuts off. Put it in Pwned DFU, then restore with cfw from redsn0w.
