Thread: Iphone stuck on white screen
05-17-2009, 01:58 PM #1Iphone stuck on white screen
My iphone is stuck on a all white screen. It doesnt do anything when I press the key on the top of the phone it turns black but as soon as I press the home key, it goes back to the white screen.
It started by getting stuck in the dialer/contacts/favorites section. It would not leave that sceen or turn off. I got a call and it froze. So I pressed the home screen and top button at the same time and then the screen turned white and have been like that for about an hour.
It lost power and turned off and I was able to charge it. But when I turned it on ..it went right back to the white screen. I can still hear when I receive texts and emails and it vibrates when I get a call ..I just cant see anything.
Will I have to restore it? If so, how do it do it? Will it wipe everything off my phone and will I have to unlock it and jailbreak it again?
Any help would be appreciated.

What dose itunes say when the phone plug in?

Yup. I think you'll have to do a restore. And yes you will lose everything. Put in DFU mode and restore and re-jailbreak.
Step 1. Turn off iPhone
Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that itís in restore mode.
Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.
Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.
Here's a link for everything you'll need.

Dose itune recognize the phone?

Yes, Itunes does recognize the phone. Im syncing and backing up the phone now. Is there anyway to back up my applications and settings from Cydia?
Also, where do I get Yellowsnow and QuickPawn from?
Thanks for your help!

Hold down the power & home button for bout 10 to 20 sec.....it just might kick it out.
