    Default Please help my Iphone back to life!!!!!!!!
    OK, had an unlocked 1.0.2 version and needed to upgrade to 1.1.3 as found that some software would not work, I went into itunes and downloaded the 1.1.3 software, This is where i think my first error was, It went into emergency mode and i ran ZIphone but since then all I get is the Apple LOGO in the middle of the screen and nothing else and what ever i do by pressing the buttons it only switches the Logo on and off, can not get it back into emergency mode, Think the phone is well mixed up, Please help me get it back to life, i am at a lose have been reading and reading on this site on how to but pretty lost to be honest, Any information with be recieved with a LARGE SMILE Thank you

    Hi there.

    i have a guide on my blog snorkrat.blogspot.com that is a STEP-BY-STEP guide to using Ziphone for upgrading. If you follow that guide, putting it into DFU mode when it says etc, then you SHOULD be able to get your phone working again. It's fixed a few people's phones who have had problems with ZiPhone.

    Basically it is there to make sure you are doing everything right, and also has a few little additions like installing Open SSH BEFORE you unlock just incase you need to SSH into the phone if installer app goes funny.

    Anyway, scroll down or check the links at the left of snorkrat.blogspot.com for the guide.

    Good luck!

    thank you snorkrat,
    have read the instructions you are telling me to, The main problem i have though is that Itunes does not see the Iphone anymore just sits there with a black screen with the apple logo in it, pressed alsorts of buttons but got no where, Did as it asks but fail at first hurdle because the phone does not talk to itunes.... What can i do?

    have you put the iphone in to DFU mode.....if not hold the home and sleep button for for about 5 seconds then release only the home button....keep holdong the sleep button for another 5 second or alil longer it itunes is already open then you should see the iphone in recovery mode message pop up....then do your restore or whatever you want to.

    try it with iTunes + iTunes helper completely closed. It's not ment to be done this way - but might work.

    Default same problem
    I have the same problem. All I have is the apple logo. If I hold the power button and the home button the phone will turn off if I let go of the home button the phone turns on to the apple logo but nothing else happens. Help please

    Let go of the POWER button - keep holding the home button!

    Try running the -e command with ZiPhone. This will erase the data on your phone. Then DFU mode > restore to 1.1.3 then try ZiPhone again!
