Thread: 2G Bricked after Blackra1n

  1. #1
    Default 2G Bricked after Blackra1n
    My 2G phone has the USB connection icon all the time. I have the latest version of Itunes (was this the problem), downloaded blackra1n, upgraded using Itunes (as suggested) then ran blackrain.

    It seemed the run all the way through as expected but came up with the USB screen - ran it again - even tried to go back to previous versions of update using redsnow - all leaves me with a phone than cannot get past the USB activate screen.

    I need to know how to get back to an old version - I may even need to downgrade my Itunes if this can be done.

    Thank you for helping, I am stuck.

    I have successfully upgraded to the new operating system in the past every time and I have had the iPhone from new so that has been a few times.

    hold down lock key + home button, and phone will restart. but keep holding and then phone will eventually shut off. now turn on and it should be ok.

    I had this problem with my 3GS. I thought I was screwwwwwwwed!
    The key was to KEEP holding that home button, after plugging in your USB cable. I am talking like 2-3 minutes for my case. Finally it came back!
