Thread: What do do when ieraser hangs at "Waiting for data..."

  1. #1
    Default What do do when ieraser hangs at "Waiting for data..."
    I searched the net for 2 days and didn't find a solution that worked.
    Now i came up with this. It's a moddified guide of something i found in the blue nowhere.... (it's tested by me and it works)

    OK here is what u need to do:

    If ieraser stops at "Waiting for data..." forever, do this:

    1. press Ctrl + Z -> it will stop ieraser process

    2. then enter: ps -> it will show you the active processes.

    3. Now enter: kill XX -> this will stopp ieraser.
    (XX is the PID number that u can read off from ps (it can be 49 or 102 or whatever)

    4. Now enter: chmod +x ieraser

    5. then try again: ieraser

    this worked with my iPhone. If it doesn't work again repeat the steps again.

    If this still doesn't work (as it did with me with another iPhone i unlocked)
    then download version 2 of ieraser. You can get it her:

    (replace the $ with an s in the link)

    this is a filepack, it include ieraser Version 2.
    You only need to load the ieraser file itself on your iPhone (about 19'000 bytes)

    Mate, I love you. I've been frustrated by the waiting for data for a whole week. Thanks for fixing my iBrick. Turns out i just needed the new version - ieraser2 (which should be linked to in the guide instead of some obscure forum post).

    Thank you so much!!
