Thread: 3gs Stuck in Recovery Mode - Tried Everything I Know of

  1. #1
    Default 3gs Stuck in Recovery Mode - Tried Everything I Know of
    Please help with 3GS

    I bought the phone from someone who had no history, just told me that it gives error 37 when you try to restore from iTunes. I tried to restore from iTunes and got the error 37

    I tried downloading an older iOS and do shift + restore which gives me error 3194

    I tried to “fix recovery” with Tiny Umbrella, after setting TU to compatability w/XP and set as administrater, and I get the log below:

    01/25/2013 08:56:33.768 Fix Recovery has finished. Allow device to reboot!

    If I try to boot with Redsnow I get this:
    Missing keys.plist data for this build:
    Device: iphone 3gs
    ECID: 3069577819599
    Build: iphone2,1_6.0.1_10A523

    If I try to fix this by pointing Redsnow to iOS 6.0 (like some say to do) and running “just boot”, then I got a short look at a pineapple (freaky) and then nothing
    After all the messing around above, I tried to restore in iTunes and got error 1600
    This phone has the new boot version - I don't even know if its jailbroken, or unlocked

    641 views and no replies - I'm beginnning to think the phone is victom of baseband chip corruption. Does anyone know how to confirm this?

    did you try with ibooty to boot ?

    Just tried that - it seemed to just keep going and going and never booted up

    Mine was too. None of the standard kick-out-of-recovery tricks worked. The only thing that worked for me was to open Redsnow and do the jailbreak. After the jailbreak process finished, it was out of recovery.
