Thread: My iphone is hot!!!!

  1. #1
    Default My iphone is hot!!!!
    On a serious note, I hope someone can help me. It's a very strange problem, and although I have some knowledge with these phones, I can't fix it. Here is what happened: While I was workin on my car, I left my iphone sitting on the dash, of my other car. By the time I realized this, my iphone was like a baked potato!!! I mean it was burning hot. I panicked, and threw the phone on a bed of ice, to cool it down. I tried turning it on, with no such luck. I took the phone in the house, and plugged it into the charger, and something amazing happend; the apple logo appeared, with a lovely blue screen behind it. I tried doing a reset, and then the sync with itunes logos show up. Problem is, once I disconnect the external power, the screen goes black. Any response I get from the phone, is when it's plugged in. It does not respond to being plugged into the usb port of my computer, nor does itunes recognize it. Should I attempt to start the phone in dfu mode? Has anyone else gone through this? Not like it really matters, but i'm running firmware 1.1.3

    Sounds like its cooked. Try DFU mode, you really have nothing to lose at this point.
    Apples taste good.

    I downloaded iliberty+, still wasn't able to put the phone in dfu. The options are there, I just can't start them. I'm assuming, it's because my computer doesn't even recognize the phone, since it's not responding to any usb ports. If I can get the itunes sync screen to come on, the phone must somewhat be responding. I just don't understand why it doesn't work when plugged into a usb port.

    Come on peeps. 86 views, and no one has an idea?

    Sounds like a hardware issue to me and no amount of restoring is going to fix a baked phone.
