    i can help you but you won't like it.

    Redsnow is currently in beta form if you use it and install it on your iPhone you will.

    a. kill your iPhone

    b. also cause firmware corruption

    the i.o.s firmware update 5.0.1 contains new dd protocols and if you use a jailbreak the jailbreak will cause you to completely lose your signal because of firmware corruption or the loop issue where the phone just loops and shuts off over and over again.

    you don't have to take the battery out you need to connect the phone to iTunes and recover the phone with the latest firmware update iOS 5.0.1.

    had to do the same thing on mine but i found out from youtube videos that 5.0.1 contains the new protocol if you have a legit sim you even lose your sim there as well i lost mine and had to purchase a new phone from apple at 200.00

    The thing is my phone is just a black screen now not even the apple logo loop so how can I get iTunes to recognise it, I don't care if the phone/sim part of the phone works or not, as long as I can restore it I will be very very very happy. I don't mind if the phone will say no signal. Please just help me get it to turn on
