Thread: iPhone Won't Turn On

I tried the GeoHot method and now my phone won't power on unless its plugged into the Wall Adapter and it only goes as far as the apple logo and stops. Please? Anyone?

i haven't seen too much on this site about the hardware unlock.
how far into the unlocking process did you get? what went wrong? personally, i would start back at george's blog and look for a hardware help forum from there.Black 16GB 3G iPhone w/bestskinever

Best guess is that the battery isn't being recognized. I know that on a Mac laptop, if the power is too low, the system won't even turn on until the battery charges for a bit. When the power manager sees that a certain amount of charge is present, then the system can boot.
Possibly in the iPhone, the power manager is also checking for battery level in order to continue?
I really think it's cool that Geohot came up with this trick, but the average user really shouldn't be doing any hardware hacking on something they aren't willing to toss in the trash when they break it...
