Thread: fried iphone

  1. #1
    Default fried iphone
    iphone has a yankee symbol boot up logo and now apple wont honor the warranty saying i voided it by modifying the firmware. The phone only boots up to where the apple symbol would be when i plug it into the computer, other then that it wont turn on. it then turns to the steve jobs picture, meaning to restore the iphone, so i try and the computer does not read the iphone at all. Someone please help me.

    Put into DFU restore mode and restore back to factory 1.1.4 and then start all over.

    DFU Restore Mode:
    Boot phone
    Hold Power + Home until the screen goes BLACK
    Continue to hold home and let go of power
    Plug into iTunes (screen should still be BLACK)
    Within 20 seconds it should come up in recovery mode
    Let go of Home and hit RESTORE in iTunes.

    And why would you tell or show apple that you have a modded phone?! Of course they won't warranty it haha.

    i didnt think it was going to turn on, i had no choice and my home button will not press at all. it automatically goes into restore mode but itunes doesnt read it.

    Definately do the DFU restore. If your phone boots that far it should go into DFU mode. Try like hell because your phone is probably flagged now and warranty voided.
