Thread: Iphone 3gs stuck in recovery mode

    Default Iphone 3gs stuck in recovery mode
    Hi Team,

    Recently i bought iphone 3gs and my brother tried to jailbreak it using redsnow. Not sure what he did but i am sure he done some thing wrong and the end result left with Wifi,IMEM number and Bluetooth grey out. I tried to update the IOS from itunes but at the time of firmware update i getting error "Iphone cannot be restored an unexpected error occurred(-1)". After getting help from net i came to know that this error will come if you phone is not in DFU mode. I Agree on this but right now i am not able to come out of recovery. On my phone i can see itune and Dock symbol displaying.

    To fix the recovery mode i tried with redsn0w_win_0.9.9b8,redsn0w_win_0.9.10b3 and redsn0w_win_0.9.10b6.

    Phone specification:-

    Phone model:- Iphone 3gs 8 gb

    If someone please help me.

    Thanks in Advance from Heart.

    Those symptoms (WiFi, IMEI, and Bluetooth missing, and error -1 when trying to restore) are usually symptoms of having installed the iPad baseband on an incompatible device. This causes permanent damage to the baseband chip. See this FAQ answer and this support thread for more details.

    You can try making custom firmware for iOS 5.1 with redsn0w and using it to restore the device, which may solve this if it's a different problem.

    Like brittag said, That may be one issue. I'm no hardware expert for the iPhone, But I'm a hack of a hacker and I think he may have gotten the wrong version of whatever jailbreak he used. In you're case, A force restore is DEFINETLY needed. This video tutorial should help you out... how to force restore your ipod touch or iphone - YouTube

    NOTE: If you already did this, Keep trying to restore it through iTunes. Errors from iTunes like that are not uncommon at all. If you try continually it will work.

    Hi brittag ,

    I tried using redsn0w 0.9.10b8. When i click extra and then clicking on custom IPWS it is asking for the file. From where can i get the file. Please guide me.

    Here: links for downloading Apple IPSWs.

    For further questions, the JailbreakQA FAQ may be helpful.

    I also reccomend you use Sn0wbreeze 2.9.1 It's a very good tool and jailbreaking method.
    I will no longer be very active here anymore due to a variety of reasons.
