Thread: Someone Please help

    Default Someone Please help
    I really need some help. My phone has been working great then, I downloaded the APP Summerboard and it stated that I needed to download the older version of the APP, I did then it said to restart the phone, once I did that it will not fully open up. You can see it's trying but will never become operable. I bought the phone unlocked with ANY SIMM, If I reboot threw the computer MAC, I can bring the phone to the Triangle Mode.
    I-Tunes will restore the phone using the newest software but wont that lock the phone again, I have not restored the phone. WHAT CAN I DO.

    Sounds like a restore. However, you did not state what version of the firmware you are running, or what version of Itunes. If you are running a slightly older version of Itunes, and depending on what version your firmware is....there is a way to restore and have Itunes use the version firmware YOU tell it too. Do a search for selecting your own firmware version on a restore, there are tutorials on the site and its fairly simple....hopefully you may be in luck.

    If its stuck on the homepage, then the phone is completely booting up. You MAY be able to SSH into the phone, manually delete Summerboard and reboot.

    Hey, its worth a shot.

    duh. you said that in your first post.
    sorry.
    cpjr is right, you can restore, but if you're not sure which firmware you're on,
    I don't know if putting the wrong one would screw it up.

    the download section on this website only goes back to 1.0.2,
    so if you can fine 1.0.1 elsewhere, and you're pretty sure that's what you were on,
    restore to that...when it's in the triangle mode, option+click restore and it will let you choose where you saved the firmware to

    oops. you've got two people trying to help you now.
    are you going to try to SSH and delete summerboard,
    or are you going to restore?

    there aren't specific tutorials for either of those as far as I know

    to SSH, you need to download a program to access your phone via sftp,
    but it has to be connected via wifi.

    first question I guess, is do you have wifi wherever you are?
    and if so, when you get to your homescreen, does it say that you are connected?

    I have WIFI in the area. but have never tried to access it from my computer only from my phone.

    yes, I meant from your phone.
    your computer needs to be connected - it can be wired though.
    the phone needs to be connected, and you need to know your ip address,
    which is sounds unlikely that you know it...

    ok, so no-go on that,
    looks like you're going to have to try restoring.

    The phone will not acknowledge if I'm connected or not.

    THanks for trying and your patients
