01-25-2013, 10:05 AM #13gs 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:

If I try to boot with Redsnow I get this:
Missing keys.plist data for this build:
Device: iphone 3gs
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.
