How to fix some mysterious problems.

I tried to jailbreak my iphone 3G using green poison and it did not work. It could not find DFU software and now the screen is black and it will not power on. I cannot even connect to itunes to restore it.

  1. The iPhone 3G is not supported by greenpois0n. Use PwnageTool 4.2, Redsn0w 0.9.6, or Sn0wbreeze 2.2 instead.
  2. The "Black Screen" is DFU mode. You should be able to restore using iTunes if you just plug your device in, or you can exit by just holding down Power & Home for 5 seconds (see instructions here)
