Thread: Help needed death screen

  1. #1
    Default Help needed death screen
    I just sold my 2g iphone on ebay and went to wipe the personal data and now all I get is the apple screen of death. I've shut it down several times (holding the power and home button) when It starts it looks like its going to go and the wait thing comes on and then stops, stays like that for 10 minutes and restarts. I've tried hooking it up to itunes but it does not recognize it. The phone worked great before this

    Put your iphone into recovery mode and hit restore in Itunes to restore to 3.1.3 again.
