Thread: 3G not working at all

  1. #1
    Default 3G not working at all
    Hello:

    My 3G does not work any more. The screen whet black like if it was off. No matter what I press nothing happens. Even when I press the power and home button together I get nothing. If I plug it in I get the apple logo for a little while then back to nothing. Does anyone know what I can do to get this fixed? All help is greatly appreciated.

    I had the same issue with my 3gs, went into rock and it had 6 things to update tonight. started an update and 1 or 2 items failed. so i rebooted and now it gets the apple logo for a second and shuts off. I have to restore to fix it.. really sucks.

    I could be mistaken, but can't you rejailbreak with RedSnow on 3.1.3.. I thought I have read that somewhere..

    thats recovery mode not DFU mode. . .i dont know if that will restore for you in recovery

    Of course there is still the question of why did saurik's apps crash the phones in the first place?

    if you use rock it does backups of all the apps you use and will just reinstall them for you which is what mines doing now

    yeah.. i'm on AT&T anyway... so no big deal about unlock.. I wonder whats the deal with the updates that messed everything up in the first place..

    yeah not real sure.. I'm currently resyncing the phone after the restore.. and then i'll try the spirit JB..

    Did you have to go into the settings and put it on windows 95/98 compatible..?

    i just did because that tutorial said so, if you ready through spirtjb.com it says if you get an error to do that so it seems hit or miss

    I can get my phone to do anything. When I plug it in the logo show for a little while then nothing. Itunes does not start or anything. I am wondering if the battery might be dead. I can not get it into DFU mode if I can't do anything. If I plug the phone in the logo show, if I unplug right away it is gone. If I leave it plugged in is kind of fades and then goes away. During this time I can press the power and home and nothing happens. Any help?
