Thread: Russian Speaking Steve Jobs. Help!

  1. #1
    Default Russian Speaking Steve Jobs. Help!
    Sorry, I didn't know where to post this, but something happened to my iphone where it only stays 10% charged and when i try and DFU the phone it gives me a russian speaking steve. I'm not sure what to do, and i don't know how to use ssh, and i don't know if that will even work. Any response would help.

    Welcome to MMi,

    If you are seeing Jobs, it is not in DFU mode. DFU mode should be a blank black screen.
    DFU and then restore in iTunes.

    Try this to make your phone noticed by itunes, First open itunes, with your phone off hold the home button at the same time plug in your charging/usb cable, itunes should then see your phone and put it into restore mode.
    Hope this helps.

    I worked through this by doing the following:
    With iTunes already loaded and waiting,
    1. connecting the phone end of the usb cable to the iphone
    2. leave the PC end of the usb unplugged at this point
    3. its okay if Steve Jobs is speaking russian at this point
    4. press and hold the power button on the iphone until screen blanks
    5. when it blanks, hold down the home button while still holding power
    6. when the pwnapple appears, let go of the power button, still holding home
    7. continue to hold Home even when Steven Jobs appears, keep holding home
    8. iTunes should soon enough pop up the message that your iphone has been detected in restore mode.
    9. careful not to restore with very current itunes because it will restore 3.1.3 FW which I have not yet worked out how to deal with yet, but I restored using itunes and it did go to the apple screen on the iphone.

    I have never seen a Russian Steve before. Any one have a vid of this? And why does this happen?

    Nevermind I found my answers
