Thread: Bricked iPhone 3GS Issue...

  1. #1
    Default Bricked iPhone 3GS Issue...
    Well it appears I managed to brick my iPhone yet again.

    It sits on the apple logo for 10 sec or so then turns off. I can put it into recovery mode as well as DFU... But I REALLY dont want to restore it.

    I just got forced into restoring it a week ago, and it was not fun at all.

    Is there any way to make this thing work without a restore? Isnt Rock My Phone supposed to have this magical de bricker? It isnt de bricking...

    cant you just rejailbreak it? put it in recovery mode and start up redsn0w 0.8. I bricked my 16gb 3gs recently and rejailbreak and all the apps and settings werent affected much.

    Well its generally referred to as 'bricked'...

    I have 50-60 apps on there that arent quite in the app store. It was a several hour long process the last time I restored it, and I was still missing things...

    Ugh. I guess ill go restore it then.

    Brick means its not recoverable. You need to restore. This is a brick btw :

    Im very well aware of what the term 'brick' refers to in electronics.

    I wasnt aware it was a serious problem to refer to a boot loader issue as a bricked iPhone.

    I would assume someone found a way to repair these issues easily. Apparently not so.

    Its not a big deal, I just found it funny. Can you still SSH into it? or does Diskaid see the root folder? You could delete the mobilesubstrate dylib that is probably causing the issue

    but if you lacked the knowledge or resources to restore it, then it's a bricked phone nevertheless

    even this

    isnt really bricked if you got the knowledge and resources to restore it to mint condition

    ^ Um, well I would assume someone has the knowledge and resources to restore their phone. LMAO

    If I could SSH into it there would be no need for this thread.

    Ill just restore it when I have the time.

    ^ I think there was no need for this thread to begin with. You know the hard answer is to just restore. So accept it.

    I am fully aware of your standpoint on this thread.

    I was not aware that the only option was to restore. I have heard of tools that could possibly recover a iPhone suffering from this issue. I was requesting the knowledge of a community I previously thought of as helpful.

    You can try holding the power and home button together for 30sec. and see if it will restart the phone.
