06-05-2013, 10:47 PM #1After Failed 6.1.4 Update, Jailbroken iPhone 5 on 6.1.3 stuck on connect to Itunes
So heres some background:
- I have an iPhone 5
- I jailbroke it as soon as the i5/6.x OS jailbreak came out
- Im not sure if I updated it, but I guess I did, as its on 6.1.3 now
- I went to restore and update to 6.1.4, and got a 1602 error
- My iPhone is now stuck on the connect to itunes screen and itunes does not recognize it
I have attempted to get into DFU mode and Recovery mode and neither are working for me.
Any suggestions or 3rd party apps I can try?
Thanks so much

Your best bet is DFU mode, and there's no real way to "back-door" it if your phone isn't recognized by the computer. This may be a superfluous question, but you are attempting to enter DFU mode (ten seconds of holding both buttons, then fifteen seconds or iTunes recognizing a "Recovery Mode" device after holding just the home button) with the phone connected via USB cord to your computer?
Failing that, the only other thing I would advise is try letting the phone's battery discharge fully (not even the little red icon should appear). You can speed this up if you are comfortable opening your iPhone up, voiding your warranty, and disconnecting the battery for sixty seconds, but I strongly advise against this route unless you know exactly what you're doing and assume all the risks of opening it up.

I guess that leaves either the "let the battery drain all the way" option, or if you've got another computer with iTunes lying around, you can restoring from DFU using that computer (plug into a USB on the back of the computer if it's a desktop, or on the sides if you're working with a laptop).

I just tried it on another computer and got the error "The iPhone Update Server could not be contacted". This itunes, however, is not up to date.
