HELP! iPhone 3G reboot logo keeps restarting & power button doesn't work!

i f'd up by trying to jailbreak it with redsn0w beta, it worked just fine for a half hour or so.. but then it kept flashing the silver apple logo. It no longer is able to work when not plugged in. It works just fine when i have the usb connected, the power button will not work,unless i try to put it in DFU mode. I know other people have had this problem before, but i haven't come to any reliable answer.

I've tried it various times with no luck, updated to 4.0.1 then jailbroke again, then restored again... nothing. I'm sure it can be fixed, it's just so frustrating...

did that the first chance i got, still nothing. like i said, it works fine when its plugged in, but now i'm stuck in the emergency calls only cause i don't have at&t. I still have the same problem with the power button though, doesn't work. It only works if i hold down the home button along with it to set to DFU mode. The other way i can tell the re-jailbreaking and restoring are not doing anything for my problem is because whenever it restarts, it asks "slide to turn off". It doesn't do that on a regular working iphone.

this is exactly how it happened.
*I jailbreak my phone using redsn0w on friday night, unlock then use w/T-mobile
*later on it starts rebooting by itself
*after i plug it in to pc, reboots for last time, then works fine
*unplug it, reboots itself again various times, power button does not work.
*saturday, i try restoring to 4.0(dl'd from felix burns) with no luck.
*sunday morning, i see that jailbreakme.com is available, jailbreak & unlock successfully.
*when unplugged, the same problem persists. what else is there to do?
*in desperation, try restoring once again. now stuck in "emergency calls only" screen

Do a restore with itunes, but dont restore your backups, and then disconnect the phone from itunes. Then do a factory reset all on the phone itself.

I'm trying to download iREB to see if it might fix the boot loop, but i cant find it, ih8sn0w website has it but it not downloadable, it says on media fire that the user account is locked or something.

well as long as you have it restored to an apple os, then youl be fine, especially if you have the apple care plan, if not, dish out some money to get it fixed by a genius

have you tried turning it off, then holding the home button down and keeping it held down while you plug it into ur usb to ur computer and restore? thats been called the trick to "unbrick" ive seen before, if that doesnt work, then you have some serious business on ur hands

^ ya what finishim said, I had this type issue once with my iPhone 3GS, but i wasnt trying to jailbreak it, it just started getting on, and so I shut it off and took it out of its case, after 15 minutes, it wouldn't get past the apple logo, so I came home, and held down the home button and plugged in the USB cable, it put it into restore mode, and I installed the OS again and everything worked perfectly ever since.

If you are able to restore, set it up as a new phone without unplugging the iPhone, and see if that helps.
