Thread: Big Problem With My Iphone

  1. #1
    Default Big Problem With My Iphone
    I was using the Installer program. I'm guessing something I was downloading possibly had a virus of some sort. Now my iphone isn't responding at all. It shows the main screen with the icons, however I can't go into any of them, and there's a loading icon in the center of the screen that keeps indicating that something is loading. Obviously nothing is. I have re-started it several times, and it always goes back to this state. Also, I tried hooking it up to Itunes, and it's not recognized. I took out the sim card, and put it back in, same result. HELP ME PLEASE!!

    are you able to dock your iphone and have it recognized by Itunes. I assume if it did, you could restore it. However, mine isn't being recognized.

    May need to restore.
    With the iPhone turned on, hold down the POWER and HOME buttons simultaneously for ten seconds (until the screen goes dark).
    Then release POWER while CONTINUING TO HOLD DOWN HOME for another 15 seconds.
    At this stage, the iPhone WILL APPEAR TO BE POWERED DOWN, but it is actually in a special type of recovery mode.

    While continuing to hold HOME, launch iTunes.

    Then restore with Itunes.

    Then follow this link:

    I had some problems simular here and so I had to restore.

    Good luck.

    Mine is doing the same thing, it is stuck in a loop, it shoots itelf to the home screen and shows the world wallpaper behind the icons, then it shoots itself to the homescreen again without the world wallpaper, its like its pressing the homescreen button even though its already there. Crap.

    I'm good to go now, I re-installed everything. However, the link that was given for the automatic appinstaller with 1.1.1 didn't work for me. It just booted me out of Safari, and then...nothing. So, does anyone know how to convert to 1.1.1 and still keep my apps, the installer, summerboard, and iBrickr???

    Thats what its sapossed to do. Read the site. Once you hit install from 'jailbreakme.com' your phone will go back to the main screen. There it will sit from 2 - 5 minutes then the phone will lock, and all you have to do is 'slide to unlock' then you should have your installer icon & a jailbroken 1.1.1.

    This cant be done. If you are referring to upgrading to 1.1.1 from 1.0.2 with your apps still installed, it doesnt and will not work! It will mess your phone up, apparently. You have to have a restored 1.1.1 to do any jailbreaking on 1.1.1.

    Good luck
    All is... so Accept and Just Be
