Thread: iPhone 3GS 4.0 Stuck Rebooting!

  1. #1
    Default iPhone 3GS 4.0 Stuck Rebooting!
    I did the jail break using jail break me but as time went on I hit delete all content and settings through the iPhone and then it was stuck on the apple logo forever so I restarted it and now it won't ever boot but I believe is still jail broken. iTunes won't restore it in DFU mode and im kinda at loss what to do now. Any help?

    Alright, make sure you have the latest itunes, hit restore in itunes to take you to IOS4.1 , leave your sim card in to activate, you can then jailbreak with either GreenPoison RC4 or Limera1n at IOS 4.1

    Go check your hosts file, anything with gs.apple.com , put a number sign infront of it # to ignore, so your firmware can be verified by Apple.
    You should download the firmware first and do the Shift key + Restore in itunes to browse to the 4.1 ipsw.
    And have you updated your Itunes yet?

    It looks like this :
    Run Notepad as Admin , open up hosts file :
    C windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    #74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    save it and reboots your pc
    Now do the Shift + Restore

    What do you mean by shift + restore is gone? With Itunes open, you press the shift key + restore button in Itunes, a box will open up for you to browse.

    You put everything on your desktop, easier to browse.

    Oh well i did the number sign thing and just hit restore through itunes without doing shift. and now its restoring. But im guessing this is going to update the baseband? so i will have to wait till 4.2 is relased along with the new unlock, correct?

    Oh i see what you mean, your iphone is rebooting itself and frozen, put it in Recovery mode

    I thought you said you do not need an unlock.

    Pull out the cable if you need unlock.

    You can't use it on T-mobile, you can only use it on ATNT. You mentioned earlier you are not worried about unlock.

    If you had told me that you wanted it for t-mobile, I would have given you another approach, it is too late now.

    Now you can use GreenPoison RC4 to jailbreak it.

    No , you cannot downgrade your baseband.
