Thread: iPhone screen not responding - stuck at Activation screen

    Default iPhone screen not responding - stuck at Activation screen
    Hey guys,
    got a pretty particular problem with my iPhone and was hoping to get some help here...
    But let me start at the beginning:
    - i am using mac, 10.4
    - i bought an iPhone 1.0.2 in the states some weeks ago
    - used independence 1.2.1 to activate / jailbreak my phone
    - used anySim to unlock my phone
    So far, so good
    - after having used that fabulous device for approx 3. hours the screen froze after i tried to enter my passcode - everything worked propperly until that moment...
    - restarting it with home/power just brought me back to the screen where i was supposed to put in my pin but the screen did not respond
    - Restored the phone via iTunes (Mac)
    - Independence just did not work any more with my phone - so i used iBrickr under WinXP
    - could activate the phone again. jailbroke it. Then unlocked it with iUnlock under mac again.
    EVERYTHING worked fine for a couple of hours - then the SAME THING again.
    - I reset it again. Status: 1.0.2
    No keys are responding except the home/power combination.
    - When I start the phone, it freezes like half a second after the "Activation"-Screen comes up. If I am quick, i can slide the "emergency" slider. But then again, no reaction.
    I figure that I messed up my baseband - problem being: with a non responsive screen a baseband reset won't be easy. Especially since activating does not work at the moment.

    Sorry for the long story. Hope somebody has good news for me...
    Thanks for your help,


    nobody an idea?

    Question I have the same problem with a 1.1.1 phone

    Did you get an answer for this.

    I have the same problem with my 1.1.1 phone. It continually reboots. When it gets to the Activate iPhone screen it just stops and then later reboots again. iTunes recognises it, iPHUC recognises it but I cannot get to Emergency Call screen to do the Safari trick again.

    I had a fresh 1.1.1 iphone and a PC.
    I used:
    TIFF to get access
    touchFree to jailbreak it
    anySIM 1.1 to unlock it
    iAsign to activate it

    Everything was working fine then it locked up and wouldn't unlock. So I restored it to 1.1.1 via iTunes. Now, nothing.

    Any help gratefully received - CoolestB

    funny and true story: i was so frustrated with my phone that I put it back into its box and locked it away for 3 or 4 days. yesterday night I switched it on - just for fun - and the screen worked perfectly fine...
    Then I virginized it following this tutorial
    Now it's working... thanks for your help!

    My iPhone also freezes at the activation screen (can't do anything, "slide for emergency" doesn't work either), and after like 10 minutes reboots itself.

    every firmware downgrade/upgrade succeeds, but the activation screen freeze always persists.

    Anyone got a solution for this?

  10. #9

    Using the restore mode and apply a 1.0.2 the iphone working right, i make a activation, install apps (installer, terminal, bsd).

    Making a update to 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 the iphone not responding and stuck at Activation Screen again.

    I remove baseband, restore baseband and another methods to virginize the iphone and not work in the others firmwares, also 1.0.2

    I get more information for this problem and not found a solution at the moment.

    I explore the iphone files and ALL FOLDERS of the a "normal" iPhone has missed. Because? Only the folder iTunes_Control has avaliable.

    This is a first step to find a solution for this problem. See the image guys:

    I have a partial solution for windows.
    First take notes of ur mac address.

    1- Download ibooterwin.
    First read all the instruccion there.
    Maybe u will have to download something called usb lub. it is also there.
    2- Put ur iphone in recovery mode like this:
    *turn it off
    *press home and hold.
    *connect the usb cable to the iphone. go on pressing home.

    When its done.

    Ecxecute ibooterwin.exe

    setenv wifiaddr "here u put ur wifi roter adress, yes its stupid" with out "
    printenv wifiaddr (just that)
    saveenv (just that)

    Thats all. Now when u restart u will have working iphone. BUT grey WIFI.
    Fix it with the devteam wifi. I couldnt. Everytime y put somenthing in there with differente wifiaddrs it will collapse.

    This was not made by me.
