Thread: What's the typical solution to a phone that won't restore?

    Default What's the typical solution to a phone that won't restore?
    My iPhone is stuck in infinite reboot (probably because of that new SBSettings glitch...), and it will NOT restore to 3.0 in jail. What can I do about this?

    Never mind. I threw it into DFU, ran redsn0w (again), put it back into DFU, and now it's cooperating.

    Sorry for the false alarm. (Have to restore it to activate with AT&T SIM so I can use push notifications.)

    For anyone else that may see this, if you are using a virtual machine running Windows on top of Linux, you cannot restore. I tried several different PCs as well as VirtualBox AND VMWare. I had to connect to a native Windows installation to get my phone to restore/update. Once I had 3.0 loaded though, I was able to sync/backup through a VM.
