    Exclamation Darn, bricked again.
    So. My iPhone 2G Is bricked. Here's my story. I had called someone, left the phone app open, put it to sleep, and left it in my pocket for a few hours. After that, I slid the slider, and hit the home button. Nothing happened for about ten seconds, so I decided to reboot. I did so, and got the apple logo for about a minute and then the phone powers itself off. The last thing I installed before the incident was SBRotator from Cydia. I think it was 3.1, but I don't know. I want to fix this WITHOUT restoring factory settings/rejailbraking, as I do not want to have to hunt for the Cydia apps I have installed. Anything I can do?
    Look, man, pie really does go moo

    I love how people throw around the term "bricked". If something is truly a brick then it's DEAD and not able to be repaired.

    LOL! I'm glad i'm not the only one who feels that way. I remember developing on PocketPC/CE devices back in the day, (Man I loved my Toshiba) and the term "brick" meant you screwed up EEPROM flash and it was about as useful as a brick. Hence the term.

    These kids today have no idea what bricking really is.
