Original iPhone (not 3G):

I had just installed a couple of free games from AppStore (both in the Top 25) and was playing a third game, Darts, when all of a sudden then iPhone screen flickers and the phone goes dead. No way to start it up again.

I tried charing with the USB cord attached to the computer with no luck: it didn't charge or turned on. I pluged into the wall socket and it started booting, but it wouldn't pass the Apple logo and it kept booting in a loop. After 3-4 times it gives up and shuts down again.

I tried all the mores there are: DFU, restore, reset. Turning it on (plugged) holding the Home button will show the iTunes icon, but it reboots again. And if I unplug it to connect the phone to the computer, it shuts down.

Anyone else having similar problems?
