03-14-2011, 09:54 AM #1Jailbroken tethered 4.2.1 Bricked.
Ok, so I had an iPhone 3g and it was jailbroken. This weekend I decided to get and iPhone 4g and jailbreak it, and since I "Knew" the process I just started on it and it worked.
Long story short, I was using facetime and my phone froze, I restarted it then it just stuck at the apple logo and won't come up.
I've tried booting with redsn0w and it just hangs at the pineapple logo.
I don't have my shsh or whatever that is, and I can't get my iPhone to restore.
Is there anyway to restore without the shsh.
I have firmware 4.2.1 installed.

Thanks for the responses guys, I've tried upgrading and it gives me an error. error 3194 I think.
And I've tried using tiny umbrella as well, and when I did I got error 3002 and It showed no shsh blobs.
I've tried a lot and I think it might be beyond fixing.
If only I would of known about those stupid shsh blobs before I started messing around.
I'm thinking about taking it to the apple store today, if it just sticks at the apple logo will they'll probably just use some in house restore method right?
I just don't want to be told they wont work on it because its been jailbroken.

If it doesn't get beyond the apple logo then they won't get any farther either and replace the phone in the condition That it doesn't have physical damage or water damage

Yeah I just got my saturday and it had 4.2.1. I'm just going to say I told it to update and walked a way. and windows update restarted the computer in the middle.
Or something like that.

I can get it into restore mode and it says I need to restore my iPhone. Then when I try I get 3194. If I try to restore to 4.2.1, which is what I have on there, by using the shift click method it still does the same.
I get the error no matter what I do, even if I try to upgrade, probably because it needs to restore then upgrade?

You should be able to restore to 4.3 fine. Just open tiny umbrella, click on advance, deselect the box that says set hosts to cydia on exit. Then close tiny umbrella and try the restore to 4.3 again.
Note, this will update your baseband to 4.10.01, but if you are on official carrier this isnt an issue.

Yo once its done giving you that error once u restore and it back in recovery mode. Download a program called recboot. You can google that and use it to kick ur device out of recovery let me know if that works

recboot isnt going to help with error 3194. This error occurs before the restore process during the verification stage so nothing has been restore in this case. Recboot or tiny umbrella can exit recovery for a device getting error 1004/1013/1015 near the end of a restore process (baseband installation errors).

Thanks I'm with at&t but I'm at work now so I won't be able to try this yet. I'll try when I get home and let y'all know for sure though. I really hope this works!

Ah for sure. Well worst comes to worst its a tethered 4.3 out there right? Or is it still in beta? And also depending on his carrier for unlock

Ok that almost worked, but now I'm getting the 1013 error and I can't kick it out. SO CLOSE. almost wish I didn't cancel my apple store visit.
Never mind I got it. Just had to delete the last line in my hosts file and that worked. Probably didn't run tiny umbrella as admin.
Thank everyone so much!
