    Default Need help!
    Using a 8gb iPhone 3G on 3.1.2 (actually using the spoof app so its 3.1.3) JB'd using Blackrain. It said there was an important update for Rock. So i downloaded it.. Then it said there was more. 5 more updates (big boss resp, cydia something, and a couple others).. I tried to update them all. It got to one that said "iphone something" It then failed. So I retried it, and it failed again. So then I went back to home screen and thought i would restart the phone..

    I then went into SBSettings and rebooted my phone... Now it will not turn on... If I hold the lock button the apple logo appears.. then like 10 sec later it goes off and nothing happens...

    help please...

    I've tried turning it on like a billion times.. still apple logo for ~10 sec then it goes blank.. I hooked it up to computer and opened itunes, but it will not even pick it up.

    Need this fixed badly.. any ideas???

    No need to worry if you have your apps backed up on itunes.. and then just redownload Rock and redownload JB apps

    Yeah , I lost some stuff cuz I had not backed up my phone in over a month, oops. Anyway phones working but which program should I use to jailbreak, My phone has 3.1.3 and I have a 3gs ???? I heard a lot of people say there using Spirit to jailbreak but I thought it doesn't come out till tomorrow? Which is better Spirit or snowbreeze??? Help : )

    I saw that weird update too. It said iphone firmware. Why would we want to download and install iphone firmware from Rock? And mine failed as well. At this point I have greater issues and can't even get into my phone but Rock needs to be checked on that "update."

    Anyone else seeing that weird looking update?

    this is why I deleted Rock.app after the first problem with the 5GB log file. Restore is you best bet. Then you can use spirt it jailbreak.
