PROBLEM = Connect to iTunes showed up on my device
iPhone 3G/8G/4.01 FW Jailbreaked through JailbreakMe
I had a huge problem with my iPhone few days ago,
after installing "RMF Glebo Edition" .deb file my iPhone (FW 4.01) rebooted and "Connect to iTunes" screen showed up.
What now, i donīt have a Backup or contacts synced with a PC (its broken) and was looking for a solution to Backup files from DFU what is ?!? LOL, not possible.
I was ready to restore my device from friends PC (Windows XP)
but had problems getting to DFU mode through iTunes, error 1611 showing up.
So, what I did was;
1. Close iTunes,
2. Downloaded redsn0w_win_0.9.5b5-5 and select (download) corresponding firmware (iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore supported by redsn0w)
and Re-Jailbreaked my iPhone what solved the "Connect to iTunes" error.
The device rebooted as always before, and is fully functional as it was before.
I hope some MOD can forward this info to the right section,
so some lost soul searching for answers can try this out.
