Thread: Iphone 3g completely unresponsive

    Default Iphone 3g completely unresponsive
    Hello all,

    I recently purchased an iphone 3g which has been jailbroken using Quickpwn. The problem is that the phone, when plugged in is completely unresponsive.

    When plugged into the usb port it simply shows the pineapple logo, and on occasion steve jobs cartoon pops up. The computer doesn't recognise it and simply shows it as a unrecognized usb device.

    I have also attempted to reset the phone using the button combinations, but have had no joy, the phone remaining completely unresponsive. Any suggestions on how to get the pc to recognise the phone would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Rhys

    Put it in DFU mode and restore it.


    Connect it to your computer and open itunes. Hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds until it it turns off. After 10 seconds, let go of the power button and continue holding the home button. You should see it connect and allow you to restore it. Just dont set it up as a backup. Set it up as a new IPHone and use redsn0w.

    Note, the screen will stay black in DFU mode. You will see the PC recognize the iphone tho and install the irecovery driver for it.

    Attempted that, but the phone is still coming up as an unrecognized device. Have now attempted this on two computers, but amsure it is a software failure.
