10-06-2007, 10:57 PM #1HELP! I got my iphone to go to the springboard, but its really slow, cant restore!
Please help me!!! I just bought my iphone today, I downloaded firmware 1.02 on it using itunes. Then I used i bricker, "freed my iphone", then I uploaded the lockdownd file on my phone. It went to the home screen, but I cant do anything on the phone. It takes 10 minutes to get to the homescreen. Then when I finally get there i cant do anything. It takes forever to load anything. like 13 minutes, and then it just freezes. I was planning on just doing a system restore. But I cant get to the system restore screen! Ive tried for 3 hours now. Ive held down the sleep and home button , but it just continually reboots, and Ive plugged the usb cable in and held the home button down and it still doesn't go to the restore screen. I was lucky enough to go to the reset section in the settings on the iphone twice, but it did nothing when I chose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. I also tried Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. My only hope is to restore it again. Does anybody have any advice. Please help I'm 15 and I've saved up 4 months to get this damn phone. Thanks.

what firmaware was your phone before you did all this

I am 14.. I get in these panic modes to when something happens.
What I would do, is hold down JUST the power button until you see the screen go off.
Then turn it on, when you see the apple logo, hold the home and power buttons for about 30 secs.
Your phone will restart once or twice before it gets into restore mode.
Once in restore mode, plug into your computer... you will have to restore your phone then..
Hope it helps you..Proud MMi Retired Moderator.

Did you attempt my method yet?Proud MMi Retired Moderator.

thanks Trent. But I already tried that, I even held them down for 3 minutes once, my phone unfortunatly does a reboot repeat when I try it that way, the only way I had success before was to plug in my usb cable and hold the home button.

Well, 03.14.08_G is the 1.0.2 firmware...
Hmm, did you try my method with it plugged in to the computer?Proud MMi Retired Moderator.

thats your baseband but its fine for now you probably should just do a restore to firmware 102 dont do 111 or youll be screwed just press and hold power and home buttons while connected to cpu. dont let go keep them pressed till you see the yellow triangle youll probably have to keep them pressed longer since your phone is running so slow

Ok, this is aggravating, I did the same thing i did last time and its still hellaaa slow. I downloaded update 1.02, and then i freed my iphone, and then I went into usr and then libexec, then I tried just turning restarting my iphone because lockdownd is already there, but that didnt work. So I deleted it and uploaded it. And now its doing the exact same thing it was last time. I also tried clicking lockdownd and then clicking download and restarting my iphone but that didnt work either. Any other suggestions?
Now i feel stupid, haha no worries i figured it out

I am in he same ****. What shld I do?

if your having trouble in restore mode, just try the button and home button hold again, but make sure the usb cables plugged in. When it comes time to upload lockdownd make sure you dont delete it, go to were its located, and upload it again. then turn your iphone on and off while the usb cable is still plugged in. Hopes this helps.
