Thread: Stuck in headphone mode

  1. #1
    Default Stuck in headphone mode
    Hi My 3G on 3.1.2 jailbroken has started getting 'stuck' in headphone mode, I have hardly ever used headphones but its happening, I've tried plugging and unplugging headphones, cleaning the headphone socket and re-setting the phone but it has not fixed the problem. Does anyone have any other helpful hints before I take it back to the apple store?
    Thanks Nick

    I have had this problem before with a 2G. For a temporary fix, use a slightly shaved-down Q-Tip with some rubbing alcohol. That might clean it out. My problem, however, proved to be a bent piece of metal inside, so I actually replaced the whole headphone jack with a part I bought on eBay. If you can deal with REALLY small screws, it's actually not that bad of a procedure. Check ifixit.com for a guide.

    Hi,
    I think I need to pay a visit to Apple, so how do I backup and restore to a non-jailbroken phone? and if they replace it with a 3.1.3 phone will I be able to re-jailbreak it again?
    Thanks Nick
