So you can't exit out of it or? I'm not understanding the problem, could you explain in more detail?

I turn on my phone, slide to unlock, choose wi-fi, and get that screen. I want to get to my home screen or at least cydia.

What happens when you hit the back button up at the top of that screen?
Did you try a hard reset yet (hold home and power buttons until phones shuts down, then release and power on as normal)?

You positive you don't have OpenSSH installed? It's a default package....
07-03-2012, 06:09 PM #6
SSH, refused conn. Maybe installed.
Back goes to Wifi chooser.So you think you are cool, huh?
Well, your cooler than me.

That doesn't mean it isn't installed. But you do have to know your IP address...
Default password is alpine, username is root. You just need your IP address in order to connect with it. (Yes, the one from the device)
I'm starting to think you should just restore if you don't know what the IP address is...

iNet scanner to get ip.
ssh: connect to host 188.8.131.52 port 22: Connection refused
Hard reset didn't work.So you think you are cool, huh?
Well, your cooler than me.

I'm guessing you don't have SSH installed then. Tried root password and everything?
You COULD hacktivate it.....
07-03-2012, 06:28 PM #10
It is an activated phone. It receives a signal.
Well, received (while in this state). Not good service here. AT&T.
Also, hacktivate using what?
By state I mean iPhone state, not US state.

May be time to restore then. 2 days, no success, no brainer to me.
07-03-2012, 06:31 PM #12
I'm saying restore bro...
EDIT: Bo beat me to it

Looks like Iannie thread got taken over.

Just seemed confusing to me that it went this far. Hard reboot wouldn't cure it. Restore is the only realistic option rather then spending so much time and effort to try and repair. Is it just me?
Not 100% sure, but looking at the post, may be pirate repos involved. Advise! don't use them...
07-03-2012, 06:39 PM #15
I was typing as you said that lol. I say restore, no SSH = basically no way to get access.
So I say restore...

Not referring to this member, but others in general that are n00bs can get so frustrated with advanced methods that may or may not work.
Proven cures and a fresh restore is 9 out of 10 times better for the OS on a jailbroken phone, bottom line.

I wanted to try and see if a restore was necessary, restores are always a last option for me. I've seen this guy around, he's a jailbreaker and he seems to know what he's doing. I try not to go for restores all the time, and I know not to just say right off the back because I know for a fact someone will probably correct me on it.
But that's just my thought process on it, I see what you mean though Bo.
