I've been following the development of the Windows version and I was elated to see it available this morning. Alas, I tried it but before any of the reboots, my phone turned into a nice pattern of salmon colored squares with the DFU screen faintly visible behind it and it has been frozen on that ever since. B33jSn0w is stuck on "uploading exploit".
I have a 3GS Older Boot (week 28)
I'm on 3.1.2
I picked only "Fix my phone"
I believe I was jailbroken only before (can't recall if I unlocked too, but would have had no real reason to).
I had the "shutdown after 7 seconds of white apple" problem
Any idea what's going on? I'm afraid to disconnect, but it seems I don't have much of choice at this point.

damn fsck failed for me also!!!
3.1.2 week 38
05-15-2010, 09:39 AM #243
Well, I'm on crack this morning. I downloaded the wrong IPSW. I'm not on 3.1.2 - I'm still on the old 3.0.1.
However, I downloaded the correct IPSW for that but beejsn0w says it doesn't recognize that IPSW. Are the older IPSWs not supported?

Same problem as before BEEJ!
Similar situation as lex.. but on mac.
Just stuck in recovery-mode.
Though it fixed the CXT file mishap.
This is iRecovery at current state:

If there's any other way to extract information from the iPhone just let me know and I'll try to get it! I don't know how I can put it in verbose-mode upon rebooting?
Thanx again for your tremendous efforts!

Hi all! SO, I finally got some sleep and I wake up this morning with a giant list of questions! Nice to see some success stories, and not surprised to see other problems still needing fixing. I just want to take the time to thank iBeej for fixing my phone too... he's so incredibly awesome! LOL. Ok well, I will share my own success story with you. I was without my phone for a couple days, and I couldn't fix it because I was working on these patches for you guys. My phone was really screwed up, because it wouldn't even go to recovery. I finally managed to get there by holding the home button at connect for about 2 minutes. (Keep that in mind if any of you ever run in to that problem)
So I fired up my trusty windows patcher (because I have been in Windows 7, on my MacBook Pro a LOT lately lol) and it took about 5 minutes at "Downloading Data..." with the hard drive picture, and it finally kicked through, patched whatever I did to it (I don't even remember) and voila! Working phone. It's kind of weird using your own software to fix your problem sometimes.
Anyway, I wanted to get started on answering some questions, so here goes...
Furthermore on this, I want to know if those of you seeing this fsck error are getting similar output from iRecovery. If there is one particular message in iRecovery which scares me most, it's the Invalid kernel cache blurb. This is REALLY bad and will take some considerable research and patching with a very customized package to resolve... if it's fixable. (I already tried once, but have new information to make this work)
Hi Tonhe, sure no problem. I worried about offsite hosting due to malicious intent from god knows who. But I have warned people to be careful, and they can always visit this thread or my site to get the latest patches. Thanks for spreading the word and giving this a shot!
Keep em coming... keep the data flowing. I will be following your posts and replying as much as possible. I'm still here and still working on it! Thanks to all for your kind words and support. Not to mention patience. I'm glad I could fix some of you, and I have no doubt we can get the others with some more time, data, and patience.

Windows 7 64bit
I went to a friends and tried to run the MAC version yesterday but could only get the update 2 with the /usr/sbin files to run. The first version would crash when trying to start the jailbreak.
I just ran the windows version and it went through all the steps, but after the phone rebooted it still is just turning off after ~7 seconds.
If you need more info or need me to run it again to get more info just post here and let me know.

Thank you for all this work you've been doing. I waited all week for the completion of the windows version and when I used it this morning it successfully completed the process but upon reboot the problem was not gone and it shut down after a few seconds of apple logo (my same problem as before). I have tried 3 times with the same results...
3Gs with 3.1.2
before week 40 of 2009
jailbroken with blackrain
not sure if I unlocked it
hope this helps, thanks
05-15-2010, 11:00 AM #250I am seeing enough success across versions that I dont know how big of an issue this is, if it is one. Even between Touch vs iPhone and versions. These are very common system level binaries that dont change much, and even if they do, they generally dont have dependency issues unless they are MISSING. Which is what these packages are meant to fix. But im looking for a pattern.. if you can get a hold of diskdev-cmds for your version, I will put together a custom package. Also, almost all of these binaries can be retrieved from the IPSWs, which I havent done yet, but for the sake of consistency, im on this path and would like to start building more advanced packages based on the IPSW you send. A few of you can help by visiting the cydia/bigboss repositories manually with your web browser and grabbing diskdev-cmds. We can compare versions and see what's changing. So there's a mission for you if you choose to accept.
First off, let me say I don't have a very large understanding of how this works so, if you want me to check anything, I'll need fairly specific instructions. From what I understand, you saying that all I need is a diskdev-cmd and can download that from the cydia/bigboss repositories (don't need to copy from iPod)? I'd be glad to help if that's all. Could you tell me how to access the repos from a pc?
05-15-2010, 11:21 AM #251
I sent you pictures of my verbose logging in a PM. What is this iRecovery logging you speak of? I will provide all I can to help.

I just tried it again on Windows 7 32bit. Still the same turning off at 7seconds. I turned on verbose boot and it is the fsck failed at the end that kills it.
05-15-2010, 11:39 AM #254
I appreciate all your hard work, unfortunately it didn't work for me though :-(. I am using an iPhone 3GS, with a serial number representing week 35. I ran your software and did everything you said but the problem has not changed. I am running firmware 3.1.2. The Rock App is what did this to me and my phone has been bricked for like a week now. :-( Please help or instruct me on how I can give you more info about my problem.
iPhone 3GS 32gb
Win 7 64 bit
Same exact error as in Mr. Kill 666's screen shot above.

Hey iBeej -- no issues man, its nice to see you're out there trying to help people...
After my phone started doing the endless reboot cycle all I could see on the screen was something about kernel continuation, lots of hex addresses, its hard to say what was on the screen, it was scrolling a lot fast than when I had the fsck problem.
I figured this was due to other issues than the /sbin trashing... so i bit the bullet.. although, now I wish I still had those photos.. didn't realize I hadn't sync'd since November
Anyway, good luck guys, hope things work out for you.
05-15-2010, 12:08 PM #256Hi KingCon, this is exactly what i'm talking about. See how this is a complete nightmare to troubleshoot? So many people even with very similar configurations, and one person is fixed, while the other goes in to reboot or shutdown again. You said it, VARIABLES. There are a lot, and we are missing something. The faster we figure out what these are, the better this is going to be. Not only now, and for this fix... but definitely for the future. I have a feeling knowing more of these variables will allow me to put together packages and continue with my own software to hopefully nail this problem down and fix things faster for 90% of the people out there. We'll get there, just takes some time and patience.
I have downloaded two different programs (iphone explorer & irecover) to try and pull more data so you can eliminate some of these variables. The problems is, I am only able to connect in either DFU mode or Recovery and both programs don't seem to work with iphones in this state. Could you please let me know what other information you desire and how I can provide that to you. I have PM'd you with other possible solutions and am awaiting your response.
I applaud you dedication to this matter.
05-15-2010, 12:13 PM #257
Wish I had an iPhone doing this. I am going to need one of you for testing with this problem. The good news is we have a good starting point. I just need to think about it some more and put something together. I have some ideas.
Thanks for the troubleshooting information.

This may sound like a stupid question, but do you have libusb installed? iRecovery won't detect your iPhone without it.

Okay, as I am trying to help. I have recorded the verbose boot, decompiled it to single frames and I am currently working on assembling them into one big wall of text for you.
Sorry, about the one I mailed you, forgot that it was horizontal. The next one will be vertical and hopefully with all the proper frames it will look good.
Gonna continue working now, for all you others that have time over, please try my method, giving BEEJ an entire log might give him great insight in the problems occuring.
