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.

this is where I'm at as well....
Using 8gb iPhone 3G on 3.1.2 (3.1.3 spoof) JB using Blackrain
Hopefully something other than a restore... I dont have any cydia app's backed up
And Itunes doesn't pick up phone when plugged in

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

not sure have to look into 3.1.3 jail breaks now
also fyi when your in DFU mode it will look like you phone is off but itunes will show it

i just got mine to show the connect to itunes screen.. thats the first thing it has done besides show apple logo for 10 sec
I just really do not want to hit that restore button...

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?

good deal.. yeah I was just looking at spirit on another website.. i'm currently restoring the phone now.. hopefully it won't be hard getting all my JB apps back
05-02-2010, 10:25 PM #12
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
05-02-2010, 10:29 PM #13
nice.. so you used spirit and all good?
05-02-2010, 10:32 PM #14
yupp jb'd in like 45 secconds,
just remember its not an unlock, only a jb,
also it didnt install rock right away like blackra1n did but its in cydia so nbd
05-02-2010, 10:34 PM #15
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..
05-02-2010, 10:52 PM #16
thats what i want to know because they updated fine with my new jailbreak?
05-02-2010, 10:57 PM #17
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..?
05-02-2010, 10:58 PM #18
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
05-02-2010, 11:03 PM #19
yeah, I will probably go ahead and do it then

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?
