    Exclamation iPhone 2G, stuck w/out any backup
    Serious prob here gents!!

    I know its quite silly having no backups with a phone like iphone but, it just happened (some time after formatting my pc)

    so, I was occuring a "unable to connect to network" so I reseted all network settings.
    after that, my phone rebooted and fell in an endless loop.
    After its showing the apple logo for years, the screen flashes, phone reboots and there we go again!!!
    It hasnt booted yet (and I dont think it ever will).

    I ve tried shutting it down the hard way (sleep+home btn) and opening it again in the right way, I've tried shutting it down again and keep pushiing the sleep+home btn until it wakes up but still nothing....
    This happened once again or twice in the past and all I managed to do was putting it in dfu mode and starting again from 0....
    But now, things are different..
    U see no backup, thats what happens

    And the question is......
    Any way to get my contacts from in there?
    Make it work, hack it, **ck it or whatever?


    Cheers,
    A desperate iPhone user

    What firmware are you on? After you put the phone in to DFU did you restore it? Is it still in DFU? When the phone was stuck with the Apple logo did iTunes recognize the phone?

    I didnt put it at all at dfu mode! (I didnt do it because once I did I couldnt get out of there)
    No iTunes didnt recognised it.

    If iTunes won't see it then there wouldn't even be a way to SSH in or use iphonebroswer or someother USB program. The phone isn't booting up fr enough to communicate with it. Sorry bro... bad news.

    lol, i had the same problem after trying to jailbreak mine, since ur in a endless boot, hold the sleep and power button and let it turn off and go to the apple logo 2-3 times. after that it should go into recovery mode, set it up on iTunes, as for getting a back up, nothing you can do about that besides re-downloading everything
