How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi all,

I decided to try to factory unlock my iPhone 3gs and paid the two bucks through unlock fusion. I got the go ahead from unlock fusion to do restore and tried to do so through iTunes but I got a number of different error messages. Now the phone is in recovery mode and the screen shows "connect to iTunes," but every time I try to restore using (the latest version of) iTunes, I get an error code 21.

The phone was jailbroken/hactivated on 6.0.1, and before that it really had a rough couple of days that I won't go into unless you really want me to.

Many thanks for any help you could offer in getting me out of recovery mode and restored through iTunes. I'm awaiting the finish line that says "Congratulations, your iPhone is unlocked!"

I tried restoring it on another computer, and it looks like that did the trick. Shit feels like voodoo. Thanks for reading.
