My jailbroken iPhone 3GS running on 3.1 was not responding to anything so I did the home button + power button reset, and it seems to be in this loop of turning on, staying on for about 40 seconds, then just shuts off. My computer won't detect it, I have tried SSH'ing so I can back up my stuff that way, because I haven't backed up since last October, which is not a good thing at all. I have heard of iRecovery but I'm not sure if it will put my phone in restore mode or not, I DO NOT want to restore my phone. Unless I really have to, but hopefully someone can elaborate for me exactly what iRecovery does, or if theres something else I can do.
The apple logo appears for 5 seconds then disappears for 10 then appears for five and so on. I can get it to the connect to iTunes screen but as soon as I unplug it from the wall it shuts off completely. A laptop with iTunes isn't enough to power it up.
I just got my 32g iPhone 4 about 2 weeks ago. After jailbraking the phone, I noticed a couple of things.1st: when the iPhone reboots I noticed a little thin LCD light showing through. 2nd: I noticed after jailbraking, I could not sign on to Facebook using app sign on. 3rd: when restoring to factory setting prior to visiting genius bar, my phone got stuck and froze up on apple logo indefinitely.Lucky for me, the tec at apple was cool and exchange it for a brand new one. Warranty is void on any jailbroken iPhones. After all that trouble, I dont think I'll jailbrake this one it's not worth it.
I'm not sure if this question has been asked before but I NEED HELP!! My Iphone was recently not able to sync on Itunes. Everytime I would try and sync my music it would disappear from the itues menu but still say 'syncing'. Then I tried to restore it after this failed (by getting an error message) I tried to re-jailbreak it and now it will not leave the Apple logo. I've tried everything I know, hopefully someone else knows something.I Have an Iphone 3g with 3.1.2 firmware on it I believe.
Its Iphone 3GS 3.1.2 Jailbroken and unlocked with blackRa1n. I'm on the AT&T network.. ok heres the issue. The phone was running real slow I decided to restart it and now it wont boot past the apple logo.. eventually a small wheel comes up and spins for a while before rebooting again. I've had the phone lock up on me in the past and would take forever to reboot but now this time its stuck at that stage.I've tried everything possible and I still cant get it to boot all the way through. *I can get it to go into DFU mode and Recovery mode when the phone shows the USB cable on the screen and says connect to Itunes.
*When I try to restore in Itunes it says something in the line of "the software installed cannot communicate with the Iphone please reinstall Itunes." *I removed everything Apple related and reinstalled Itunes but no luck. *
I used Blackra1n again but it gets stuck on Geohots face and doesn't move. *Tried redsnow but wont boot past when it says its installing the ram update on the screen. *I've read that people have had similar problems due to something I must have installed via cydia that is locking up and not functioning during bootup. *I've tried Irecovery to try to access the phone via command propmt but it wont detect the phone. *The only option left besides restoring the phone through Itunes and installing 3.1.3 which would remove my jailbreak for the time being... is there a way to upgrade or restore your firmware without using Itunes? Is there a way I can access the phone and manually delete cydia or any app that might be causing the hangup?
I had a fully functional Blackrained 3GS with the old bootrom (before the 40th week). What happened was After i installed some cydia Winterboard tweak, the phone got a little sluggish, so i restarted it, now its stuck at the apple logo screen !! I tried to DFU/Restore to 3.1.2 using official 3.1.2 firmware but apparently Apple doesnt sign 3.1.2 anymore, it gave that build error message u all must be familiar with ! I also tried to create a custom firmware through Pwnagetool on my mac and tried to restore through itunes (9.1.1), it gives error 1600. I am at a loss in this situation please help me !! Currently Im downloading an old version of itunes on my windows to try do the custom restore.
I have a 2G iPhone which was hacked to work with UK Vodafone. All was well until I reset all the settings today. At the end of the reset process (using the "general" section of settings) it has become stuck with the apple logo. The phone is unresponsive including all buttons. My mac doesn't recognise it when connected by usb.Google has not been helpful either.I am lost for potential solutions and was hoping someone might be able to help.
My phone was being slow so I thought if I turned it on and off again it would work alright again..Obviously I was wrong as when I tried to turn it back on nothing happened except come up with the apple logo. Now it's frozen on the apple logo. do I need to take it into an Apple Store for repair?
my iphone was working just fine. it is jailbroken on 3.1.2 with blackra1n.sent a text, put the phone back in my pocket. when i took it back out it was stuck in the boot screen with the status icon stuck half full.whenever i turn off and then back on it does the same thing.itunes wont recognize the device.
I tried to restore my 3Gs. It was jailbroken on 3.1.3. The restore failed. I tried using tiny umbrella and RecBoot and it still said i could only restore and upgrade, so i decided after trying that a bunch of times to just do the manual reset from within the settings on the phone. It was on the apple logo with the spinnging thing for like an hour, and now its just stuck on the apple logo. I put it into DFU and tried exiting DFU (like i did earlier) using recboot but now it just wont leave the apple logo.
It is not the lead, as my sister's iPhone is responding when plugged in using the same lead. If I switch the phone off and plug it in, the apple logo appears and the phone switches itself on. However, it does not charge and does not show in My COmputer or iTunes..???
So as I was downloading a new theme for my jailbroken phone it froze. So I reset the phone and now its stuck on apple logo and doesn't change. periodically it will give me a white spiral on the bottom of the apple logo but that is it. I don't know how to get it to that special mode to reset.I guess my phone is bricked
Hi, I thought to enter the world of iphone, so i went and brought a iphone 3G, i got it today and jail broke it using jailbreakme.com, Bt a while later i realized i want to remove some things on my iphone so i reset the phone back to factory settings, So i did that and now its stuck in the apple logo, i read online to do a hard reset and press home button to connect to itunes, and i did that, n it wants to update and restore, bt i dont want that, i want to keep my 4.0.1 OS. And no i didnt save my sdsd (whatever its called) i read some ppl post on this, BUT IM SO CONFUSED, can someone please explain to me please,
I've been reading posts of various people with the similar issue but I've started to see a trend. I've jailbroken about 5 phones and recently everyone except mine got stuck on the exact same apple logo of boot.
No new software was installed. The phone was working perfectly fine before it rebooted by itself. Is apple doing anything to cause this. I know this might sound stupid but a pattern gets me to think it might be true.
In my case, my phone was working perfectly and I went into the mail app to check my mail and the phone got blank and came up with the apple logo. To top it off, I don't have the ssh for my phone as It was replaced and apple stopped signing 3.1.2's. Can anyone help please.Is there anything besides restore I can try? I tried putting the phone in DFU and starting it up but it didn't help.
Will it be a scratch magnet like previous iphones or will it be a different design/material because call me OC all u want, i hated that about my 3g and 3gs...my apple on the back getting scratched after wind passing by!
I was wondering if you iphone 4 owners notice little specks on your apple logo if you look at it in a certain angle. It doesn't look like scratches and doesnt seem like it's on the glass itself but on the metal part under the glass. I wanted to be a little less OCD with this phone (on my previous iphone I taped up the apple logo and then put it in a case), but it is just really bothering me. I already did a search and it seems like people are finding dust under their screen but I havent been able to find a thread with people finding specks on their apple logo.
I have an iphone 3gs i bought from ebay nearly a year ago. I bought it jailbroken on IOS 4.1 i think and i have not used it for 3 months. I replaced the battery a week ago. It just shows the apple logo the restarts and keeps doing that forever. I tried turning it of and putting it in dfu mode but keeps doing that. Itunes wont pick it up and as soon as i pull the charger out i turns off and there's no battery.
I have an iPhone 3Gs that is stuck on the apple logo screen. Tried doing all kinds of restores and putting it into DFU mode but iTunes wont recognize it and will not even boot up. Just simply stuck at the apple logo screen until the phone dies.
I didn't jailbreak the device i tried to restore it holding down both buttons diddnt work I olsa tried to restore by plugging it in while holding the home button it didnt work either please help (ios5.1)
I have an iphone 3gs that does nothing when not plugged in but when i plug it into the computer and the apple logo will come on and go off. I plug it into the wall charger and it boots up but says the phone needs activated and wont let me do anything else and when i unplug it to plug it into the computer it shuts off. I have put it in dfu mode and it goes to restore but at the end of the process when almost done the phone shuts off.
I left my iphone in the sun by accident when i went to the beach yesterday. when i tried to turn it on the apple logo appeared then it dissolved and hasn't turned on since.i already tried holding the power button and the home button for 20 seconds, recharging it for a day, letting it cool off, hooking it up to a computer, and still nothing
