    Default Need some help with an unlock/jailbroken disabled iPhone 3G
    First, I want to thank the members and admin of this forum for tons of info I have used for the past year or so.

    Second, I am not too sure if I am posting this in the correct subforum or not. If not, please tell me where I should post this or if the admin could please move it?

    Now on to the issue at hand.

    My sister's 3G has been disabled because her son, my nephew, who is 1.5 years old was playing with it and apparently kept pushing buttons causing it to disable for security reasons.

    She put the password because he would take the phone and start calling random people, how embarrassing, but I guess it backfired on her.

    What I need to do is try to get into the phone without losing any of the content. My nephew's life is practically documented with pictures on the phone. If I could extract the photos and then reset the phone, it would be awesome.

    She has never synced her phone with any computer. durrr

    I know the password, but can't get to the password screen.

    Here is a picture of the phone with modmyi in the background

    My nephew is in the santa hat.




    your help is much appreciated.

    I found this:

    HOW TO: iPhone Data Recovery

    I will be reading it tomorrow.

    I saw this already, this only works if you have previously synced your iphone.

    Not the case here.

    mmmm DFU mode then restore? or is that what was in the video? How is it that you have an activated iPhone w/o syncing on a computer?

    EDIT: dont hold ****.

    By syncing with the computer that you normally sync with, won't it un-disable the phone? If you do not know the passcode, then try this:

    You should be able to access the photos, videos and music via iExplorer. [link]. It's free, and should allow you to access the phone even with a passcode, I think.

    Do you utilize iCloud on the iPhone? If so, then you should have pretty much everything backed up to the cloud anyway. In the end, you are going to have to restore the device to get past the disabled screen.
