Thread: iPhone stuck in a loop

  1. #1
    Default iPhone stuck in a loop
    I need major help. I've had my unlocked, jailbroken iPhone for about a month now and absolutely love it, can't see myself doing without. Somehow it started running in a loop of activity that lasts about a 10-12 seconds but will do little else. While it's doing this loop I can get into certain applications like dialer screen, installer, etc... but at the end of the 10-12 seconds it acts like it's starting up again. It doesn't go all the way back to the Apple symbol but just keeps reloading the home screen like it's just finished starting up. It starts and shuts off fairly normally and after start up the Edit Home Screen message pops up. Shortly after that (5-7 seconds) the iPhone starts to cycle back like it just completed start up. I've been able to get into DFU-mode (cable and iTunes symbol showing) and tried to restore it to different firmware versions with no success. I can also use iBrickr to help downgrade it prior to trying restore in iTunes. About the only thing I can think that may have had anything to do with this is that I wasn't paying attention when I put the iPhone into it's leather case and put it in upside down. The volume buttons were covered up and looked liked they had been being simultaneously pressed for about 30-40 minutes until I figured out what I'd done. Any help is appreciated.

    A little more info... Restore failure... When I try to restore it using iTunes it does okay for the first couple of minutes but then iTunes shows that it's "Waiting on iPhone" and the iPhone has the apple symbol in the center with the working symbology at the bottom but nothing happens. I've left it like that for up to an hour but nothing changes.

    You need to force the iphone into DFU mode and restore, the only way to run 2.0 is by starting with a fresh 1.1.4 iphone, use the pwnage tool to pwn the iphone, and then create a custom 2.0 firmware with pwnage and install that normally with iTunes.

    DFU Mode it, then use Pwnage to create a custom IPSW. Do NOT use ZiPhone.
