Thread: WAAAA!!! Got given an iphone and screwed it within 24 hours

    Default WAAAA!!! Got given an iphone and screwed it within 24 hours
    Dammmmmmm, Im sooo annoyed right now.

    My mate just got a new 3g so gave me his iphone 2g as a handmedown.

    The dock connector is completely shot and wont connect to a pc at all, it just barely charges off the wall socket.

    Therefore I am stuck on 2.2.1!

    I was managing to live with all of this untill I decided to try and install the 2g mms hack from cydia, and I'm now in an apple logo loop.

    Obviously if the dock connector worked i could just restore, but as far as I can see I've completely f***ed it and I'm gonna have to go back to my clumsy N95+ipod touch combo.

    Pleeeease help!!!

    If the dock connector is shot than I don't think there is much you can do

    Yeah, thats what I was thinking.

    I've been quoted 60 to replace the dock connector which isn't too bad considering the phone was free.

    Default Try a different cable....
    ...maybe one from an older/newer model... sometimes the port/cable marriage can be JUST off, not to mention that cables can go bad. Can't hurt to try this before replacing the port.

    My $0.02

    Yeah try another cable first.

    But it could be several hardware issues. None are good.
