Thread: Help! Frozen Screen fixed without factory restore?

    Default Help! Frozen Screen fixed without factory restore?
    I have a 3g unlocked/jailbroken iphone that is stuck at the black screen with the apple logo. I try the power/home button restart but that doesn't do it. I can get it into restore mode but don't want to have to do that.

    I would like to avoid restoring it, anybody have any other ideas??

    Did you install something that may have caused this?
    Not sure you have many choices, sometimes plugging in the usb cord (charging) will make it restart, but not much chance really. Good luck.

    Yeh hard device reset as stated by dragon. I do it a different want tho.

    Connect phone to PC so connect to itunes message show up. Press power and home for 15 seconds, let go of both and then press power for 2 seconds. Let it try to boot for about 5-10 minutes.
