Thread: Problems Recovering Iphone 5

    Default Problems Recovering Iphone 5
    Hi there,

    I bought an iphone 5 cheap off someone because they couldn't get it out of recovery mode (plug into itunes screen) after an update.

    Now I've tried recovering it on my macbook with latest itunes but it stops when finalizing firmware, takes forever then finally comes up with an error of (52). I tried it on my dads windows but it comes up with an error or (-1)

    I've tried using redsn0w to recover it, but when I go to put it into DFU mode, the application tells me that it's not compatible with the iphone 5 (strangely). And every time I got to extras>recovery mode to install the firmware I downloaded it tells me it's not compatible, and will not load it. Now I've heard I had to fetch the blobs, but when I go to do that, the Fetch Blobs icon is greyed out, and I can't select it! Please help!

    Thanks

    That phone has most likely a hardware problem, so there isn't much you can do, sorry.

    I think you need to change the battery but I 'm not sure
